Vagabond of the Month!
Where do I start? Just finishing the on-ramp was huge for me. I basically had zero fitness when I started at VBC, and I feel like I’ve been breaking through a series of personal barriers ever since. Getting through on-ramp, going to that first group class, participating in my first team workout, completing the WinterFest competition in February, participating in the 2012 CrossFit Open, going to the Ocean State Master’s Throwdown in June, cracking a sub-30 minute 5k, getting my first pull-up, being a part of the 24 hour Race Around the Lake relay team, recent PRs on deadlift and high bar back squat where I beat my old PRs by 30 and 40 lbs. respectively….These are all things I would never have dreamed of doing as recently as last October. And getting my first handstand holds – that was a pretty awesome feeling. I’ve also lost about 40 lbs. since I started here. VBC has helped me come so far and do so much, it’s tough to choose, but I think my proudest accomplishment is probably my consistency.
