What is CrossFit Newport?
CrossFit is an innovative approach to fitness that encompasses several different types of athleticism
including cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, weight lifting, and gymnastics to name a few.
Each CrossFit athlete has different goals
but one common thread is that we seek to be physically prepared for whatever life throws at us. Our training is constantly varied; and that is one way we strive to prepare our athletes to perform well at work, at home, and in their chosen recreational activities.
At CrossFit Newport, our workouts are composed of constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity.
The movements we perform are to strengthen our athletes as whole persons, not just specific muscles or muscle groups. Emphasis is often put on maintaining core stability or core strength, because in “real life,” the movements we do all involve the core muscle groups; meaning the stomach, back, butt and pelvic muscles.
High intensity is different for every athlete at every different season of his or her life.
Every workout can be adjusted to meet your needs; with a focus on your personal fitness goals. One of the best things about CrossFit is the quantifiable way you will be able to chart and monitor your growth; how your “high intensity” of 6 months ago was blown out of the water by today’s personal records.
One of the best parts about CrossFit is the community that is created in our group classes.
You will meet others with similar interests, from a vast array of backgrounds. Fellow athletes will cheer you on when you are struggling through a tough set of exercises, and vice versa. CrossFit Newport wants to be so much more that just another item on your “to-do” list, we want to be a community of people investing in each other to mutually improve the quality of life and quantity of healthy years lived in these bodies. We want to see our members spur each other on to reach down deep and tap into their inner reserves of strength; iron sharpening iron.
When you join CrossFit, your workout will be scheduled group classes taught by a certified CrossFit trainer
you will be taught to how to safely and effectively perform various movements. Class sizes are limited, so you will always have a one-on-one attention from your trainer. Your personal trainer will provide you with ways to maximize your results and make your lifestyle and fitness goals achievable.
Each day you workout, you will have results to record here on the website.
It is a great tool to post your times, scores, personal records, 'shout-out's' to other members ( 'Good job today Tim!) and more. This is one of the many ways we will be monitoring your growth in your personal fitness journey. Another way we do this is the 'benchmark workouts'. These are standard, periodic workouts created with the intent for you and your trainer to see how you are progressing. These workouts are named and have the same exercises every time you do them, but what will be different is your abilities! Your first 'baseline' will have a certain time, your next baseline you'll try your best to beat your first time, and so on.
The emphasis in CrossFit is increasing your ability to perform functional movements for longer and longer times durations with increased efficiency.
What does this mean? That's different for each athlete. For one, it means no back pain at the end of the day when you had to put your toddler in and out of the car 200 times. For another it means being able to install those new planter beds in one day rather than two days. For another, it means being able to get through a day of a physically taxing day with vigor and energy left to spare.
At CrossFit Newport, we view each athlete as a whole person.
Your trainer will consider your background, any injuries you might have, your age, your diet, your goals and more when training you and customize your workouts based on these considerations. Working out is just one facet of health, nutrition is another important aspect. Nutritional counseling will be a part of your membership dues. We will regularly have nutrition classes and nutrition 'challenges' to help us get motivated to make healthy food choices.
Elements of CrossFit Introduction
Our “Elements” classes are designed to introduce athletes who are new to CrossFit to the basic, fundamental movements. Each athlete must show proficiency in all fundamental areas and be given trainer approval before moving on to regular classes.
Regular CrossFit Classes
After passing the “Elements” classes, or if you already have CrossFit experience, you begin regular classes. Regular classes make up the bulk of our weekly class offerings. We highly encourage each member to record their daily times and/or numbers through the website; so we can chart our growth together. Another benefit is knowing where you are at (weight on lifts, max reps, etc.) on certain lifts and exercises.
Current Class Schedule
5:30 am to 6:30 am; 9 am to 10 am; Noon to 1 pm.
4:30 to 5:30 pm; 5:30 to 6:30 pm; 6:30 to 7:30 pm.
9 am to 10 am: Free Intro Wod; 10 am to 11 am: Saturday Large Group Workout.
The emphasis in these classes is on long distance/time stamina. These classes are perfect for those wishing to prepare for distance races, triathalons, or just wishing to improve cardiovascular and respiratory performance overall.
Balance and Flexibility Classes
Our goal is to have a certified yoga instructor lead athletes in order to improve mobility, increase range of motion, improve balance, and learn better breathing practices.
When our box has a group of athletes that elect to compete in contests both in the team or individual competitions, we will hold pre-competition classes to prepare.
We plan on offering classes for children that will increase strength, flexibility, improve cardivascular/respiratory function, and most importantly BE FUN! The students will get to learn the same moves and exercises Mom and Dad are doing, and play all kinds of great games that will improve mental and physical fitness.
