Tim Paulus

I’ve always tried my best to stay in shape, whether through biking or running and trying to maintain what I thought was pretty healthy eating habits. After a friend told me about Vagabond Crossfit towards the end of last Summer, I decided I would push myself out of my comfort zone and give it a try. After never working out in an official gym, I knew I had my work cut out for me. The transition from never working out in an actual gym, to working at Vagabond 3 days a week, to now 6 days a week and attempting to eat as clean as possible has shown me tremendous results and has made me incredibly proud of where I’ve come today in 9 short months. Coming this far and actually being able to do a successful pull-up (or 5) is something I never conceived would be possible – Especially after Kevin told me I was the “weakest man he’s ever seen”  during my first week (Thanks for that – gives me motivation to this day!) The constant positive encouragement and dedication from the trainers is one of a kind and keeps you pushing for more. Seeing the results after the 35 day no grain Challenge was my “a-ha” moment..The hard work has really paid off… It was an amazing experience to see what is possible with hard work at Vagabond combined with healthy and clean eating habits. Thank you Kevin, Ross, Heather, John, & Mike for instilling a big sense of pride and self confidence in myself – something that certainly wouldn’t have been possible anywhere else.
