*Gym Brief for the Week*
1. Vagabond Next Beginners Class on April 25th:
We offer our Beginners Program, which is mandatory before entering the group class and will be directed through a well organized and efficient program. The duration of the Beginners Class Program is 6 small group sessions, which will last two weeks long. We will teach you the fundamentals of our Strength and Conditioning Program to help make your transition into the classes a little easier for you within a small group setting.
2. Vagabond TRX Class Starts on Sunday, April 30th, 2017 for 8 am class:
TRX Suspension Training – This 6 week, 55 minute long class consists of body weight exercises that develop strength, balance, flexibility and core strength simultaneously along with improving your metabolic conditioning. The suspension training straps help even the newest member to exercise gain strength and core stability. Every exercise can be as challenging as the user makes it. Just alter your angle to the anchor to use more or less of your body weight. This full body workout will leave you impressed with how little equipment you need in order to get an intense workout. TRX small group classes are limited to 6 participants.

3. Vagabond Second Annual Mother’s Day Workout on Sunday, May 14th @ 9:00 am
Please join us for the 2nd annual Vagabond Mother’s Day benefit workout for the fight against breast cancer! We’ve all been touched by this disease which does not discriminate. Our great friend and long-time Vagabond member, Robin Johnson Taylor, is a two-time breast cancer survivor and will walk 3 days/ 60 miles this year to end breast cancer.

This special workout will take place on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 14th at 9:00 AM. Friends and family are welcome to join in on the fun: wear pink (if you can), bring a $20 donation at the door, and let us know who you’re working out in memory or support of. Event T-shirt pre-sale will be available soon- be on the lookout.

Let’s do this as a community, in honor of our mothers, grandmothers, wives, sisters, daughters, aunts and friends and make a difference together.
