"Battery Tester, Re-Test from April for Fitness Phase and New Powerlifting Class this Sunday"(8.27.2012)

*Vagabond CrossFit On Ramp Beginners Class Starts Monday, September 10th, 2012. Contact us for more information and to sign up.*

On Ramp is a prerequisite and will prepare you to safely complete a regular class. These classes run 3 times a week for two weeks. The next open on ramp will begin September 10th . There are no more than 4-6  people per session so that we can ensure our athletes get the attention they need and can graduate feeling confident in their ability and knowledge of CrossFit. If you would rather complete the On Ramp individually or if these days and times don’t work for you, then we have a 5 session personal training option as well. These personal training sessions will also prepare you in movements and progressions like the class. If you are not sure which is the best path for you to take in order to reach your fitness goals please call us and make a free appointment for and assessment with one of our certified trainers. Other questions email us at [email protected] or call us at 508 930 8734. Claases fill up quickly, so contact us as soon as possible to reserve your spot today.

*New Speciality Class @ Vagabond this Sunday, September 2nd @ 10:00 am*

We will be offering a new Speciality Class at Vagabond this Sunday, September 2nd @ 10:00 am. We will be running a test day on Sunday to see the interest. We will be running a Powerlifting Class on this day, and will help and concentrate on squatting, deadlifting, and bench press. This will dramatically increase your ability to perform these movements, and also give you an opportunity to use some different equipment in a different environment. We are looking forward to this class, and have learned some really good information over the trainers course that held at Vagabond. All are welcome and all levels are welcome to attend.
