Gina Morningstar: August

Gina M

Month you were born in:  November

Where you are originally from and/or where you live now:  Brockton, Easton

 What days/times you typically train at VBC:  6am, 530pm, weekends

 My proudest accomplishment(s) in my training:

Completing my first RX competition with Suzi. Being on the same floor as amazing athletes like Carolyn and Kat for Saturday workouts. Finishing all but one open workout RX this year.

Also, bringing other people into the gym like Jill and Matt. Convincing them that everyone at a crossfit gym isn’t hairless and ripped to shreds. Seeing the progress they have made. Seeing how happy they are. Also, judging the opens this year, for the last workout, the thruster one. It was great to help people come up with a plan, help them stick to it. I remember Katie Welch just killed it, and I was so happy for her!


Some current training goals and/or personal goals are:

Oh man. Need to work on skills. Increase some maxes. Hit 200 HBBS. I mean, who doesn’t want to be a beast?  Personally, I want to continue to take pride in every training day, every 5 lb PR, and also be sure to tell others how proud I am of them too.

 What’s the best thing about Vagabond

Vagabond has great coaches because they care if you are going to really hurt yourself. Not all crossfit gyms are like that. They may not always be nice about it, but don’t be so sensitive! Vagabond has also let me into a group of really great people. Crazy people like me who like to work out until they see death. People who share my drive and think it’s totally acceptable. People who will spend all morning working out but still eat a cheeseburger and crack a beer that night. Those are good people!

Kevin has also been so patient with me, helping me to be patient in my progress. Acknowledging my hard work. Every single person at Vagabond gets that individual attention, and that’s pretty amazing. That’s by far the best thing about this gym.
