What’s the best thing about Vagabond:
Vagabond has changed my life. Prior to joining, I had a trainer who was my best friend, and a group of people I worked out with that I grew comfortable with. Towards the end I felt as though I wasn’t making enough progress, and needed something new, something that would make me uncomfortable. That is when I found Vagabond one night while googling gyms in the area. I remember taking my first on ramp class, and thinking, I can’t wait until I can run as fast I can out of here. I am the least coordinated human. Originally, Kevin didn’t think I would be able to take group classes, but I was fortunate enough to work with Heather @ 7:15 a.m. where she helped get me up to speed.
Vagabond is my happy hour. It is the ONE hour that I can just turn everything else off, and forget about the day. There is not one thing that is best about Vagabond. First, Kevin’s programing is what has kept me here; it is second to none. Second, the coaches – it is comforting that every single one of them have a vested interest, and they know everyone’s limitations while making sure that each move is performed properly and pushing you to become better. In addition, I love showing up and being surrounded by a community that not only shares common goals of consistently improving each day, but also holds you accountable. I am incredibly grateful for the amazing friendships I have made. I hate to steal a page out of Kev’s book but Dedication, Patience, and Consistency are really the keys to success.
