Home / About Us

LilBeasts.com is the official kids’ portal to a fit way of life. We link kids, parents and coaches to resources to help keep them active, learning about being healthy, and understanding the basics of nutrition.  Our informational posts, coaching videos, classroom materials, and cartoon learning aids are all tools, which are geared towards the learning level and interest of kids. Whether your kids or students are Lil’ Beasts (ages 5-9) Future Beasts (10-13) or Beasts (14-18), CuzImABeast.com has resources to help deliver the best workouts, lesson plans, and long term programming.

While we do offer a ton of resources, workouts and tools for kid’s programs, but the Lil Beasts is not a certification-based company.  

Our Mission

To help kids, parents and coaches make fitness fun.

About the Lil' Beasts

The Lil’ Beasts are a group of monstrous rascals each with personalities of their own. Named after concepts of functional fitness, these little guys can be hilarious friends and classroom learning tools at the same time. Check out their backstory below:

Lil Beasts live in your “box” (a.k.a. gym), in the little spaces between the rowing machines, underneath the weight racks and medicine balls, above pull-up bars and in the ceiling near the rings.

Lil Beasts love to be awesome at everything they do!  They want to help you be awesome too!  Every WOD (Workout of the Day) you will do with them is designed to make you stronger, play longer, jump higher, run faster and have more energy!

The Lil’ Beasts are also very careful about what they eat. Good food will help you be a BEAST, and bad food will make you tired, lazy and sick, like Skeeter the Cheater.

There’s a lot to learn, but each of the Lil Beasts is ready to show you the way! Remember: Live long and strong. Most of all, have fun!
