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

Originally from Weymouth; live in West Bridgewater now.

What days/times you typically train at VBC:

I try to make it as often as I can to the 4:30 or 5:30 class.

My proudest accomplishment(s) in my training so far is/are Completing the Opens. I was nervous at first because, well, let’s be serious, I am not the strongest person at the gym… But after talking to Melissa, Tricia, and Nicole about their experiences doing it last year, I wanted to take on the challenge! I’m so glad I did it! I looked forward to seeing how far I could push myself each Saturday.

Some current training goals and/or personal goals are

Well, most recently I wanted to make it through every Opens workout. I had never done cleans, or pull ups, or wall balls before, so I was nervous about doing those once the workouts came out. I surprised myself (even though my “cleans” or as Scott Melton calls them-my “zottman curls” still need some work) by getting through all the workouts; I will never forget the front squat and pull ups workout; I went in thinking I would make it through 1 round, 3 mins., but I made it through 4 rounds. I couldn’t move my arms for 2 days after that, but the pain was a reminder of exceeding my own expectations! A current goal I have is to do band free push ups, and I’d love to get a couple pull ups in too!

What’s the best thing about Vagabond?

Hmm.. I’m an indecisive person, so I’m going to pick three bc I can’t decide: the people, the individual attention from the coaches, and the variety/challenge each day’s workout brings. I’ve met so many good friends through Vagabond and I love the community. When Matt joined the year before me, I didn’t get the whole “crossfit thing”, but after just a month here I got why he loved coming so much. It’s addictive! The community and coaches are so supportive; I look forward to coming to Vagabond to destress after work each day!
