Letter from the Owner
November 19th, 2020
Hello Newport Fitness Members,
Yesterday, Governor Beshear released new, temporary guidelines for gyms, and while they're not ideal, they won't prevent you from working out at Newport Fitness/NewCov CrossFit.
Here is what you can expect over the next 3 weeks:
CROSSFIT & FITCAMP CLASS CHANGES
All CrossFit Classes will become "Open Gym CrossFit" and all Em's Fitcamp classes will become "Open Gym Fitcamp."
So, starting Friday at 5pm, these classes will become "On Your Own" Open Gym time slots. You'll still reserve your spot (as if you were headed to a class) on the Newport Fitness app or website. We have updated the classes/open gym times through Sunday. We will have the rest of the 3 weeks of classes updated by this weekend.
NOTE: Friday, 11/20 Evening Classes are as follows. If you had already pre-registered for a class, you will need to re-register as your registration has been deleted.
3:15PM - Fitcamp, 4:15PM - Fitcamp, 5PM to 7:15PM - Open Gym
3:15PM - CrossFit 4:15PM - CrossFit 5PM to 7:15PM - Open Gym
When you arrive, a Coach will be available on the floor as a monitor to answer questions and help with music, timers, etc but they are prohibited from leading a class. We will have the workout of the day on the TV screens as usual.
That means you'll arrive and work thru your own Warm-Up and the WOD on your own, to finish up within your hour time slot. Coaches can help answer questions, but you'll need to move thru the pieces as if they were pushing you along, so you don't exceed your hour. If you wish to stay beyond one hour, that is fine, just make sure to sign up for multiple open gym time slots.
MASKS NOW REQUIRED
The other significant change from the Governor is that everyone must have a mask on the entire time they're working out. So, that means that no one is allowed to remove their mask anytime they're inside the gym. Please use your best judgement. We do not want anyone to pass out due to restricted breathing or fall due to depth perception inhibited by the masks.
MEMBERSHIPS & HOLDS
If you are on a contract or grandfathered membership, no changes will be needed if you plan to continue working out during this time frame. We will allow anyone to place their account on hold since we are not able to offer our traditional classes. However, we would like all holds documented, so we ask that you email to set up your hold versus calling or texting.
6 WEEK CHALLENGE
This only affects those who had extended their challenge due to travel as all other challenges are complete. We will continue your challenge as normal. Your class options will be open gym as stated above OR private beginner sessions. CLICK HERE to schedule a private beginner class (Full Schedule will not be available until Sunday Afternoon). Private Sessions times will be 5AM, 6AM, 9AM, 6PM, 7PM.
