CrossFit - Mike McWhinnie

"Mike came from a bootcamp style gym. I could tell within a few days we had him hooked on CrossFit, once we he tried that barbell! Not only was he a fast learner on the lifting, but he brings a great attitude to the gym day in and day out. Glad to have you as part of the NewCov family!

- Emily, Owner

"Mike is a hard working individual. My favorite thing about Mike is that he always has a "why not me" attitude. He's always trying new things, experience, age or mental blocks aside. He's ready for a challenge. A true pleasure.

- Coach Raquel

"Mike is always a joy to have in class! He always comes in with a smile and ready to tackle whatever is on the schedule as long as we put on some good rock music! :)"

- Coach Taylor

Fitcamp - Mark Groeschen

"Mark is always friendly and a face you can count on to help other feel welcome. He has also made a lot of improvements since his start at Newport Fitness. Keep up teh great work, Mark!"

- Emily, Owner

"My DUDE!!! I remember the 1st FREE Community Class Mark came to.... We had running and he almost walked out. Instead of running I got him on a rower and a year later he's now got several Race Medal and has lost over 50 pounds!! He is a true inspiration to all our Athletes and we are honored to have him as part of our Newport Fitness FitFam!! #WhoopWhoop

- Coach Adam

"Mark always great to have in class. He is so positive and ready to put in hard work, even if he is the only one in the class! He has made some incredible changes in his weight loss and fitness journey!"

- Coach Taylor

Employee of the Month - Joey Garro!

Joey is one of our new front desk administrative assistants. We have asked him to do some not-so-fun tasks to start including lots of cleaning, rearranging, organizing and he always does it with a smile on his face and even comes looking for more work when he's done! We gave him the dreaded rubber mat cutting task and he knocked it without a single complaint. Thanks for you all you do!

2) Monthly Package (Unlimited Use) = $20/Month (2 Months Minimum). Can cancel any time after the 2 months.

3) Annual Package (Unlimited Use for 12 months) = $150



We always have members wanting to repeat the 6-week challenge for the attendance accountability; however, we can't allow repeats for financial reasons. Here is our NEW solution for existing members needing help with accountability!

6 Weeks of Accountability - Starts at the start of every 6-week challenge. Upcoming challenges include:

  • 6/6

  • 7/11

Cost = $100. Goal = attend 24 classes in 6 weeks. You can attend multiple classes/day and open gym. If attending open gym, YOU MUST FIND A TRAINER to check you in. We can also extend out your 6 weeks for the duration of your travel period if stating the vacation/travel time prior to the challenge starting.

Our administrative staff will text you every week to let you know how many classes you have attended thus far AND will reach out if you start falling off track to help you hit that goal.

If you hit the goal, we give you 50% of the money back, 15% is put into a pot and 35% goes to Newport Fitness. At the annual membership appreciation party, anyone who hit the goal will be put in a drawing to win the annual pot that builds each challenge (even if not a member still). Minimum pot will be $500. If you do not hit the goal, 100% goes to the house.



Building renovations are almost complete! Thank you so much for your patience and putting up with the mess and disorganization. a

Here is a list of improvements made thus far:

  • The Lobby/Front entrance has been relocated to the CrossFit side including our new sign!

  • 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 replaced a lot of the old mats and repositioned them to get rid of the cracks as best as we could. We still have a few more finishing touches to get the mats in order.

  • 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. We still have a few finishing touches to put in place here.

  • We relocated Bella Bar Hair Salon, to the existing front lobby. There is a new hallway between the salon and front restrooms. Be sure to check out Bella Bar hair salon for all your styling needs!

  • All four restrooms have been painted. New flooring was added to the front restrooms. All new paper towel, hand soap and toilet paper dispensers have been added.

  • We knocked down the original Salon and Physical Therapy Walls to expand the Fitcamp area, adding more mats and turf. A retractable divider wall to allow for multiple activities at once (such as personal training, beginner crossfit and bringing back some kids classes, etc.) will be coming soon as well as new signage and another pull-up rig.

Upcoming Renovations Include (Spring/Summer)

  • New tile in the fitcamp room as well as new signage (Coming Summer)

  • A second floor office and storage area will be built above the new lobby (Coming Fall).

  • Painting the outside of the building and making some other aesthetic improvements (Coming Summer/Fall)

  • New outdoor signage (Coming Summer/Fall)

  • AC for kids room, new entrance and locker room (Coming VERY Soon!)
