Free Exercise Programs Come to Newport Park for the Summer

Free exercise classes are coming to a Newport park, led by some familiar names in local fitness.

The effort is in support of the myNKY plan to promote a culture of good health in Northern Kentucky, and is a partnership between LiveWell Newport and the Campbell County YMCA.

Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings at Buena Vista Park (on West 12th Street in Newport).

The family-friendly classes will be guided by Yoga Bar, NewCov Crossfit, Train with Pauir, Change Yoga, and the Campbell County YMCA.

LiveWell Newport, a coalition of diverse community stakeholders, is focused on programs that promote healthy choices. Past and current projects include park cleanups, a community health fair, walking trail design, and nutrition education at local schools.

“LiveWell NKY’s momentum is clearly evident in Newport, as we launch this opportunity for residents to get moving in one of our beautiful Newport parks," said Barbie Barnes, St. Elizabeth Healthcare associate and LiveWell Newport co-chair, in a news release. "We are grateful to our partners for their enthusiastic support and commitment to a healthier community.”
