* Three Phases of Training at Vagabond starting Next Monday, October 29th*

We already have two phase of training at Vagabond, and now will be adding on a third phase of training. I am going to make this clear and concise, do not look at these Phase of Training as Leveling Systems, or that one is better than the other. The Phase of Training are meant for you to choose what your goal in your health and fitness is throughout your time at Vagabond. We are one of the few gyms in the New England area that gives you this option, to be able to choose freely what phase, template, and workout you want to accomplish within your time with us. If you choose Lifestyle Phase, this does not mean you are stuck in that Phase forever you could decide to do the Fitness Phase the next day. It is all relative, and each Phase of Training will have a purpose, and will be as difficult as it can be. Please read over the definitions of each Phase of Training.

1.    Lifestyle Phase
The name implies exactly what we are trying to do within this phase of training. We are trying to enhance and promote your
health and fitness. Through Lifestyle Phase Workouts, you will be shown a wide variety of movements and proper mechanics. The Lifestyle Phase workouts are great for beginners as they concentrate on technique, form, consistency, rather
than killing you and intensity. However, these are just not for beginners, as these workouts can be performed by anyone, and can be very challenging for the fittest crossfitter. The Lifestyle Phase Workout are perfect for those trying to lean out and become strong.
2.Fitness Phase
These workouts are great for those looking to improve or enhance their ability on technical movements, such as gymnastics, Olympic lifting, and
plyometrics. This phase could lead into the Competition Phase for that dedicated athlete as time permits. The Fitness Phase really hones in on dynamic skills and complicated movements within Fitness and Sport. If you are looking to take your athletic ability to the next level, then this is the Phase for you.
 3. Competition
The sport of CrossFit is one of the fastest growing, most exciting opportunities out there for athletes looking to push the boundaries of
human performance. Like any sport, CrossFit demands high levels of skill and coordination as well as strength, speed, power and endurance. Our competition program is designed to help athletes prepare for elements likely to be contested in the sport of CrossFit, as well as prepare them to be as adept and well-rounded as possible to excel in unknown elements of our growing sport. If you are interested in developing as a CrossFit athlete, then this the phase for you.
