Vagabond of the Month for August: Sam Porter

Month you were born in:

Where you are originally from and/or where you live now:

Originally from BrockVegas, currently residing in Bridgewater.

What days/times you typically train at VBC:

I am always there, typically at 9 am, but I’m often still there when the noon time class is filtering in.

My proudest accomplishment(s) in my training:

My proudest accomplishment in my training is the progress I have made on the assault bike. I never used to be able to make those calories go up but after months of encouragement and coaching, that bike has nothing on me. I still negotiate for less calories though!

What’s the best thing about Vagabond:

It goes without saying that the coaching at VBC is unlike any other but above that are the close friendships and support that have gone beyond our time in the gym and now weave our families together. A group of like minded individuals gather with a goal of fitness but end up supporting each other in and out of the gym, in struggles and accomplishments. Conversation become less about “How much can you squat?” and sound more like “How can we tire the kids out today?” We may be a little chatty in the warm up but it’s only because we are not only building bodies, we are building a family.
