Youngsters train like Olympians at McDonald’s in Coral Gables

McFit Day participants, Ronald McDonald and the CrossFit coaches at IMT CrossFit pause for a group shot after a rewarding day of training like Olympians — doing lunges, squats, pushups and jumping jacks.

Dozens of youngsters got a taste of the Olympic life, thanks to Ronald McDonald and the coaches at IMT CrossFit during the recent McFit Day 2012. The McDonald’s restaurant at 4180 SW Ninth St., just north of Coral Gables, was transformed into a CrossFit gym for kids, as participants of all ages worked their way through a series of jumping jacks, squats, lunges and pushups, led by the coaches at IMT CrossFit. Ronald McDonald and the IMT CrossFit Coaches also educated McFit Day participants on the importance of staying active and fit, as well as portion control and proper calorie intake. The event culminated with an award and medal ceremony, with the gold medalist taking home the coveted Slip-N-Slide!
