Getting Started: FOUNDATIONS and STRUCTURE Programs


CrossFit Newport acclimates new members through a series of 6 classes.  These 6 classes lay the foundation for a great, rewarding experience as an athlete at our gym.  In the FOUNDATION program, we teach fundamental moves to new members. The focus is on safety, form, and mechanics.  

In these FOUNDATION classes, the intensity, duration of the workouts, and volume of exercise is scaled back from the normal classes in order to emphasize focus on form and mechanics. When you transition into the STRUCTURE classes, you will notice an slight increase in load and intensity.

Some of our new members will progress to the second step, STRUCTURE, after the first cycle of 6 FOUNDATION classes.  Others will need to cycle through the FOUNDATIONS classes a few times to get the basic flexibility and/or cardiovascular capacity needed to take it to the next level.

We ask all our new members to make a committment to attend the 6 FOUNDATION classes by appointment with one of our trainers.  Typically, our FOUNDATIONS classes are small.  It might be only you, or there could be 2, 3 or more joining with you.

Once you cycle through these 6 STRUCTURE CLASSES, you can attend all of our regular classes.  The trainers will help you learn how to scale back workouts, when you should make things more challenging, and give you feedback on your form and mechanics of the moves.

First workout of the NY Program. I'm excited to see how far I can go and what I can accomplish with this. I have set my goals high and hope I reach them.
