Vagabond of the Month for January: Chris Molinari. 


“Vagabond has taught me to push myself harder then I ever have before. The coaches are very encouraging and educate me on using correct form and staying motivated throughout each workout. The events outside the gym as well (Vagabond Night Out & Holiday Parties) are a great way to take a break from the hard work everyone puts in each day, and learn more about the community and have a fun night out. I recommend Vagabond is anyone looking to take that next step in his or her fitness goals. Thank you to Kevin, Jay, Andrew and the whole Vagabond community for being positive influences.”


1. Vagabond Next Beginners Class on February 26th, 2018:
We offer our Beginners Program, which is mandatory before entering the group class and will be directed through a well organized and efficient program. The duration of the Beginners Class Program is 6 small group sessions, which will last two weeks long. We will teach you the fundamentals of our Strength and Conditioning Program to help make your transition into the classes a little easier for you within a small group setting.


2. Vagabond Register for the CrossFit Opens Starting in January/February Now:
The 2017 CrossFit Opens was huge success for Vagabond CrossFit. We came together for 5 weeks in a row and competed, fought, and supported each other in true Vagabond style- with drive and compassion. Over 65 of us officially registered for the Games and dozens more who popped in and out each week for the workouts- record numbers for the gym. Vagabond was in the top 15 for most sign ups for affiliates in the Northeast out of around a thousand gyms. This year they have opened the variety and choice once again, by adding in a RX and Scaled Division for everyone to participate in a safe and effective manner. If you are doubting yourself, then stop yourself right now. This is a 5 week online competition, that is meant for each and every person to take part in and also challenge yourself for the five week period. We will meet every Saturday at 9:00 am as a group and for five weeks be there to help cheer each other thru challenging workouts, but are for meant for everyone to do.
Just another great way for each and every person to have goals to meet and to have something to look forward to every weekend for 5 weeks. Sign up Vagabonds!
