"Opens Workout 13.4 in the Books"(4.1.2013)

*Opens Workout 13.4 in the Books*

Another week done, Another strong week of performances by all Vagabonds who participated in this fourth edition of the CrossFit Opens 2013. We are down to our final week of the CrossFit Opens, and a successful run by every Vagabond who participated in the 2013 CrossFit Opens. The fourth week was filled with a technical lift in the clean and jerk and a gymnastic skill portion with a toes to bar. As we approached this workout, some doubted themselves on each particuliar movement, but at the end of the day, each and every Vagabond, accomplished some sort of goal that was laid out in front of them. As we approach Week 5 and the end to the Opens, do not concentrate solely on the failures or negative aspects of this venture, but look at the positives that came with the Opens 2013. Most accomplished a goal, that they never thought could be reached. Our community over the last five weeks has grown stronger and more supportive with each week. Peoples mindset of working harder, being more dedicated, and being consistent within the gym has been revamped, and in the long run will overall effect how you accomplish goals in the future. The Opens are not just about being the best or having the highest score, but its about building a community to strengthen everyone from the elite level athlete to the beginner. At Vagabond, we strive to have the safest, most effective approach to keeping our clients safe, healthy, and overall living a better lifestyle for the longevity of life. Through the Opens, we can learn alot about ourselves through seeing our determination, dedication, consistency, and desire to want to do the best we can through setting lifestyle goals.

Congrats to all who have finished Week Four, and Let’s Move Onward to Week 5!
