The above is our logo for Vagabond and something I truly stand behind in my philosophy for my fitness facility. As functional fitness grows and develops to be the thing to do for now, we will constantly run into other businesses, where people truly do not care about the well-being of their clients, but overall how much money is coming into their bank accounts.
My own philosophy is stated below and what I truly believe can give people their success within their time at Vagabond CrossFit and other gyms.
“We are a fitness community dedicated to ongoing learning, continued improvement, constant support, and the achievement of health and fitness goals.”
Vagabond is a place of strength and conditioning that uses the principles of training variant energy systems through functional and desirable movements that will enhance our life through sport and fitness.Through our three models of value and principles, which are Dedication,Patience, and Consistency, you will reach and go beyond your goals. Through Dedication and being able to solely commit yourself to your physical and mental well-being, you will then become successful and reach those desires you wanted to throughout your life. Through Patience you will gain a respect for other avenues of sport and fitness, as you will see things that you want to accomplish will come through hard work and patience to be successful. Through Consistency in your program, you will become healthier and you will reach those goals you set in front of you through a well-designed approach and assessing what you want to accomplish.
Through a well thought out program and having the ability to assess every person through our eyes at a professional level, we will put you on the right track for sport, fitness, or just being healthy. Our MISSION is not to sell you a gimmick, but to have a plan behind our reasoning, and have a reason for our plan for YOU!
I highlighted the 3 main words through that mission statement as Dedication, Patience, and Consistency. If these three core values are engraved into your workout routine, you will end up being successful within your journey into fitness. I do believe gimmicks work, and they are working everyday in our Fitness Industry, but what is the LONGEVITY of these people fooling their clients about their success and what they are doing for their program. The answer is simply VERY SHORT. We as trainers, coaches, and owners must have the obligation to educate our clients with what we are performing each day, and why we are doing so on a daily basis. Every day, Every week, Every Month, we should be perfecting our art of program design and learning from mentors in the fitness industry. People with an ego will fail, and they will fail hard. Keep your ears and eyes open to those who can teach you and mentor you in the right direction within your fitness industry.
Being successful can be measured in the weight of the gold you possess in your hand, but being successful can also be measured by the attention you bring to your clients and how you approach yourself with education as well. How do you better yourself everyday to bring your clients the best that you can offer? This is a question you must ask yourself on a daily basis.
Be Selfless. Be Vigil. Be Helpful. Be Present.
