"Winners of the Fourth Edition of the Vagabond No Grain Challenge"(12.3.2012)

Vagabond CrossFit On Ramp Beginners Class Starts Monday, December 10th, 2012. Contact us for more information and to sign up. These sell out fast, so get in contact as soon as possible to reserve your spot today.*

On Ramp is a prerequisite and will prepare you to safely complete a regular class. These classes run 3 times a week for two weeks. The next open on ramp will begin December 10th. There are no more than 4-6  people per session so that we can ensure our athletes get the attention they need and can graduate feeling confident in their ability and knowledge of CrossFit. If you would rather complete the On Ramp individually or if these days and times don’t work for you, then we have a 5 session personal training option as well. These personal training sessions will also prepare you in movements and progressions like the class. If you are not sure which is the best path for you to take in order to reach your fitness goals please call us and make a free appointment for and assessment with one of our certified trainers. Other questions email us at [email protected] or call us at 508 930 8734. Claases fill up quickly, so contact us as soon as possible to reserve your spot today.

*This is not just a weight loss competition but heavily favored with overall results in performance and also participation within the gym. Both of these winners during the 35 Day Challenge were in Vagabond no less than five days and participated in many Vagabond Events. Also if you see their overall results in their performance categories, you will see a vast difference in each category. I am proud to announce Walter and Julie as our Fourth Edition No Grain Winners. Our honorable mentions go to Carlos F. and Erin Stuart, who were nipping at the bit to take the crowns, but fell just short of the title. Either way these two people put in some serious work, and have to mention Erin was dealing with some shoulder issues, but still made time for Vagabond Workouts. Big Congratulations to everyone who participated and pictures will be posted over the next week of some of our participants.
