All days, usually the evening classes
Anything else interesting/unique about you that you’d like to share:
I bought a foreclosure in Stoughton in November of 2011, my wife and I gutted the whole house and then rebuilt the entire thing.  We put up walls and ceilings, put down floors, built a second bathroom, painted, did trim work, I never knew I was capable of some of the things I did.  I consider it my biggest accomplishment.
In addition to being a CrossFitter, I am…
A critical care nurse, a wanna be baker, an adrenaline junkie
My proudest accomplishment(s) in my training so far is/are…
Improving my lifting technique, doing more than one double under and handstand holds
Some current training goals and/or personal goats are…
Unassisted kipping and regular pull ups, to become a better runner, and ultimately become a
part of the competition phase
What’s the best thing about Vagabond?
The great community and coaches!  I used to belong to the Y and when I would go there to work out I never said anything to anyone, just go about my uninspired workout and leave.  Now I really look forward to coming to the gym and doing the workouts.  It’s great to be able to get to know the people who you’re working out with, and the coaching staff is awesome, no matter how long it takes you to finish there’s always someone there pushing you till the end.  I’m really glad I found this gym, I hope to be a part of it for a long time.
