Vagabond of the Month for September: Brandi B     

“I joined Vagabond 6 years ago. It was at a critical time in my life when I had decided not to go back to a job that I loved and had been at for 12 year and to stay home and take care of my new baby. I had lived in Easton for some time but never made friends or had roots because I worked in Boston and was there all the time. It was a very lonely and sad time. I had a new baby and no family or friends around. I met Melissa De La Vega at a party.  She told me all about the wonders of Vagabond and I gave it a go! Joining the gym was life changing. I found a new home. A new place where I could be silly, happy and just be myself.   The workouts are great and empowering but the sense of community is what makes it the best gym around. I have made the most amazing relationships in my life. Friends that I feel so honored to call friends! None of which I would have meet without the gym. Just walking in at the 9am puts me at ease and a smile on my face. I feel privileged to call Kevin and Katie my friends. They have made the gym what it is today. I am proud to say I am a Vagabond member!”

“So do me the honor of living your life like you really mean it. Go out and conquer your goals, do things that you’re a little scared of, make awesome memories that give you cool stories to tell, and love, love as much as possible, freely and genuinely. Love people, love activities, love scenes and ideas, and material things, and songs, and just love as much as you can. Enjoy your life you only get one, and value your time, you never know how much of it you really have.”
