Vagabond of the Month for December: Lee Harney


Month you were born in:


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

I grew up in East Bridgewater; currently live in Easton.

What days/times you typically train at VBC:

I typically attend the 5:35 p.m. class 3-4 times a week and try desperately not to miss Saturday partner workouts! I have grown to love the Sunday circuit training even if I have to be there at 8 a.m. <3

My proudest accomplishment(s) in my training:

Oh! So many! Vagabond has helped me become a stronger person; both physically and mentally. I called Kevin at the suggestion of a co-worker (#6 Fittest Man 2011 Games) when I was experiencing back pain and sciatica. Vagabond has kept me moving for 5 years with NO back issues. It truly is a lifestyle fitness regimen. There have been 15 minute AMRAP’s that were harder than raking my whole yard for hours! You never know the work you’re getting until you compare it outside the gym. The training at Vagabond helped me succeed in meeting my goal of running a 5K a year later, and I recently finished 3 Spartan races to get my Trifecta medal in Seattle at the age of 53 this year!

What’s the best thing about Vagabond:

Kevin, the coaches, the community, the friendships; it’s all the best, not one thing, but put it all together, and you’ve got the best. I feel the motivation and inspiration from all of the above every day.
