*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 Phase of Training being implemented into Vagabond*

Here at Vagabond we realize people have different needs and goals in mind for their training. As of right now, we have two different phases in the Fitness Phase Level 1 and Fitness Phase Level 2 and also the Competition Phase. However, we are in the process of adding another Phase called the Lifestyle Phase, where this will be for brand new beginners right off the Beginner’s Program. This is going through some testing right now, and within 3 months, we will have a whole new look for the Lifestyle Phase. This will entail a totally different workout, and also a totally different plan of attack. As of right now, we are adding in different movements for brand new people, to get them comfortable within Vagabond, and also be able to apply the basics for these people, who are just getting used to the gym. So, please keep this in  mind, and please stick to your Phase during the workouts, and you must ask the trainer or coach, if you can bump up to different Phases for the workouts. So, if you are on the Lifestyle Phase, you must stay on this Phase, until you feel comfortable to move onto Fitness Phase. Please keep this in mind that we do this to ensure everyone is safe and performing the movements correctly, but also to give you the best training out there, as we are one of the only gyms performing this way of training and breaking down workouts to these Phases of Training. It is all for your benefit, so take advantage and keep coming in!
