CrossFit comes to Newport

Body: 

NEWPORT — A new workout option previously untapped in south Washington County will be opening in Newport.

Ben Smith and Bailey Platson of Hastings are planning to open Made2Live CrossFit at 785 20th St., just off Highway 61.

CrossFit is a high-intensity workout program that incorporates interval training, weightlifting, gymnastics and more. Made2Live will offer hourlong classes seven times daily on weekdays and twice on Saturdays. Classes will be held six days a week: Monday through Saturday.

Weekday classes will be held between 5:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m., and 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays.

The CrossFit center will take up about a third of the building, with the rest still occupied by Twin City Logistics and a paper warehouse.

City Council approved the conditional-use permit 5-0 at the Aug. 16 meeting.
