THE NEWPORT FITNESS OPEN - STARTS TODAY!
Be sure to Wacth the Week One THEME Announcement Video below!
Here's how it works...
CrossFit Headquarters will announce a workout on Thursday at 3PM (for the next 3 weeks). Every CrossFitter IN THE WORLD participating in the open will complete this workout (as many times as they would like) by Monday, 8PM.
The Workout of the Day on FRIDAYS will be the open workout in all Fitcamp. High-Intensity Mix and Regular CrossFit Classes. So if you come to class, you are doing then open WOD! There will be CrossFit Rx and Scaled versions available as well ad Fitcamp Rx and Scaled versions available.
Your second option for completing the Open WOD will be at our Friday Night Lights event! We will start running heats at 6PM to be done on the CrossFit side, no matter your division. We will provide a link to sign up for a heat on Thursday via text and the facebook groups once they release the workout.
If you signed up to participate in the Newport Fitness Internal Open, you have been placed on a team. Adam, Raquel, Taylor and Emily are your captains!. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE TEAMS. Here is how you can help your team earn points
Do the workout! - You get one point for attempting the workout. However, please keep in mind that you MUST submit your score electronically ON TIME to get credit. We will send out a text on Thursday with more instructions on how to do this.
Dress Up! - You get one point for dressing up. You can dress up on Friday during class or at our Friday Night Light Event OR whenever you attempt the workout throughout the weekend. YOU MUST SUBMIT A PIC!
The top 4 scores will make up the workout score. So, if you have to modify, no worries! You won't be bringing the team down, we only count the Top 4 scores each week.
Here is how the divisions work...
We have decided to switch it up this year to make a more united CrossFit/Fitcamp Family! So, the 4 teams are combined of Fitcampers and CrossFitters. Your teams collectively will earn participation and dress up/theme points amongst CrossFitters & Fitcampers. However, the fitcamp scores and crossfit scores will be separate so that we do crown a CrossFit AND a Fitcamp Champion!
Example: 40 Teammates Total - Team One (25 CrossFitters, 15 Fitcampers)
Let's say all 40 people did the workout and dressed up. Let's say the Top 4 CrossFit Rx scores earned them 2nd place in the WOD and Let's say the the Top 4 Fitcamp Rx Scores earned them 3rd place in the WOD.
Score 1 Participation = 40 = 1st Place (1)
Score 2 Theme = 40 = 1st Place (1)
Score 3 CrossFit Workout Top 4 = 2nd Place (2)
Total Places = 1 + 1 +2 = Overall score after week 1 = 4
Score 1 Participation = 40 = 1st Place (1)
Score 2 Theme = 40 = 1st Place (1)
Score 3 Fitcamp Workout Top 4 = 3rd Place (3)
Total Places = 1 + 1 +3 = Overall score after week 1 = 5
The lowest score at the end of the 3 weeks (aka - the lowest places) will crown a separate crossFit and Fitcamp Champ!

RENOVATIONS ARE UNDERWAY!
Building renovations are well underway and we are getting closer to being done! Thank you so much for your patience and putting up with the mess and disorganization. If everything goes as planned, we will be all cleaned up and put back together by the end of March!
Here is a list of improvements made thus far:
The Lobby/Front entrance has been relocated to the CrossFit side. We still have to install our new sign and a few finishing touches, but otherwise this is complete!
Active Physical Therapy has been relocated to the CrossFit side just behind the new front desk. Be sure to stop in and check him out if needing any physical therapy needs!
A new hallway from the new entrance directly to kids room has been made.
We tore down the rest of the wall in the CrossFit area and added mats to expand the crossfit space. We STILL HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO WITH THIS! We will be replacing a lot of the old mats and repositioning them to get rid of the cracks. Stay tuned!
We built up the kids room wall up to the ceiling to make it quieter and also enclosed the kids area to keep them from the lockers, ice machine, etc. This created a separate locker area/lounge that will be spicing up in weeks to come with more cubby holes, Keurig coffee for sale, new TVs and paint.
Upcoming Renovations Include (Spring/Summer)
A second floor office and storage area will be built above the new lobby.
We are in the midst of relocating the hair salon, Bella Bar, to the existing front lobby. There is a new hallway between the salon and front restrooms. THIS IS ALMOST complete. Be sure to check out Bella Bar hair salon for all your styling needs!
All four restrooms will be painted. The front restrooms will have new flooring and repairs made to the sinks and showers and all new paper towel, hand soap and toilet paper dispensers have been added.
We will be knocking down the original Salon and Physical Therapy Walls to expand the Fitcamp area, adding more mats, turf and a retractable divider wall to allow for multiple activities at once (such as personal training, beginner crossfit and bringing back some kids classes, etc.)
Painting the outside of the building and making some other aesthetic improvements (Coming Spring/Summer)
New outdoor signage (Coming Spring/Summer)
AC for kids room (Coming Spring/Summer)
FOLLOW UP TO OUR ANNUAL SURVEY
Thanks to all of the members who took the time to complete our survey and provide us with some excellent feedback and suggestions!
We take the surveys very seriously and use these as our base for making improvements year after year around the gym. In addition to this, we meet with each employee individually to discuss their trainer ratings providing them with the positive feedback from the survey and of course address any concerns that may have come up as well.
Here are few items/concerns that stood out on the survey that we wanted to address right away!!
1) The Mat Issue
We SINCERELY apologize for the liquid under the mats. We purchased a slightly used machine scrubber last year and have had LOTS of problems with it ever since. Unfortunately, the seller has been uncooperative in helping us fix it despite our months and months of efforts to try and repair it. It was not sucking up the disinfectant as it should have been and had gotten worse in recents times . We chose not to run the scrubber for the last several weeks to let all the disinfectant dry up and it has. The scrubber has since been repaired. Once all renovations are complete, we will be thoroughly cleaning the gym, addressing any issues under the mats and replace any mats that need to be replaced. All mats will be re-aligned to fix the cracks that have formed as well. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
With over 350 members at any given time, we will never fully be able to satisfy everyone's given desire in this area. However, we do appreciate the feedback and have decided to limit the long workouts to twice/week - Wednesday Sweatfest and Saturday Partner WODS. You will start to see more of a variety of shorter (8 minutes or less) and medium duration workouts (9 to 15 minutes) throughout the week.
