3. Vagabond Register for the CrossFit Opens Starting on January 14th

The 2015 CrossFit Opens was huge success for Vagabond CrossFit. We came together for 5 weeks in a row and competed, fought, and supported each other in true Vagabond style- with drive and compassion. Over 90 of us officially registered for the Games and dozens more who popped in and out each week for the workouts- record numbers for the gym. Vagabond was in the top 15 for most sign ups for affiliates in the Northeast out of around a thousand gyms. This was the second year that Vagabond had an official team for the opens made up of the Competition Phase group and they finished in the top 5 out of 400 teams in the Northeast region, making the East Regional and finishing 7th overall at the East Regional out of the 30 best teams in the Northeast and Canada East.

This year they have opened the variety and choice once again, by adding in a RX and Scaled Division for everyone to participate in a safe and effective manner. If you are doubting yourself, then stop yourself right now. This is a 5 week online competition, that is meant for each and every person to take part in and also challenge yourself for the five week period. We will meet every Saturday at 9:00 am as a group and for five weeks be there to help cheer each other thru challenging workouts, but are for meant for everyone to do.

Just another great way for each and every person to have goals to meet and to have something to look forward to every weekend for 5 weeks. Sign up Vagabonds!
