Partnership with CrossFit® Inversion

Port View Preparatory® is excited about a new partnership with CrossFit Inversion at both our Yorba Linda and Ontario campuses.  CrossFit® training consists of varied movements performed at different levels of intensity, and the movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more.  Physical training and tailored exercises benefit special needs students with their motor skills, balance and strength development.

Every Wednesday, two groups of high school students from Port View Prep will be escorted to CrossFit® Inversion for 30-minute training sessions after lunch, between 1:30-2:30 p.m.  Training has been adapted for students with complex challenges and includes:

  • Warm-up sessions: 5-10 minutes at the beginning of class
  • Movement Instruction: 5-10 minutes
  • WOD (Workout of the Day): 10-20 minutes
"To be honest with you, I haven't had a worry or care in the world about Mikey's safety since he started at PVP."
- Rachel Darr
