Proudest Moment: 

VBC proudest moments: One morning in late March 2020, I made the decision to get out of bed before I had to and log into Vagabond’s zoom work outs in my driveway.  Kevin’s commitment to Vagabond and his clients that morning changed my whole outlook through the first year of the pandemic.  It would have been easy to give up and stay in bed all day, but waking up and starting my day with a great work out with the vagabond community set me – and through me – my family – up for healthy and productive days and weeks and months.  I’m forever grateful to Kevin & the Vagabond staff for their dedication during those days! 

Best thing about Vagabond:

So many things.  Everyone talks about the community, which is absolutely true.  You won’t find a better, more dedicated, or more connected staff and client base anywhere.  But the things I’d like to spotlight are 1) Jay’s music.  Hands down, the best part of the gym for me!  2) Injury prevention and rehabilitation:  I came in with an awful back that I threw out all the time.  With the advice and support of Kevin and all of the coaches, I’ve learned what exercises to avoid and what muscles I need to strengthen, and – knock on wood – my back hasn’t ever felt better.  3) The work outs are so dynamic and exciting – I’m never bored.  Its like learning a new sport in my 30s.  I’m always excited to come back, try something new, and challenge myself further.  I feel like I really kicked some ass every single time I walk out of the gym.
