Description

6-Week Boot Camp

March 2 - April 6

12:45 - 1:45pm


Workout with your dog!

This class does double duty by building both your and your best furry friend’s core strength and muscle! And you’ll do so while having a lot of fun and strengthening your bond with your dog. There’s nothing quite like planking with your pup!

Why work out with your dog?

Just like with people, dogs can develop muscular imbalances and often lack adequate core stability - predisposing them to both acute (slip & fall) type injuries, as well as chronic injuries such as intervertebral disk disease, hip dysplasia, luxating patella’s and more. Canine strength training helps to ensure that your dog is using the correct muscles for movement thereby preventing compensations throughout the body that may lead to injury. Training in this way not only helps to strengthen your dogs muscles, ligaments, and tendons, it is also much safer on their joints than running is due to the low impact of canine strength training exercises.

Working out releases endorphins in people, and it does the same for dogs too! It literally is a feel-good exercise you can do with your dog, and dogs LOVE the class! There’s nothing quite like trying new things with your favorite human while being positively rewarded for doing so.

This class

Here’s the fun and effective part! We have specialized fitness equipment for dogs (it exists!) so they can work their balance, increase their strength, boost their endurance and develop flexibility while increasing their sense of body awareness and confidence. For the humans we have kettlebells, bands, dumbbells, the TRX and more, plus plenty of creative body weight exercises for you and your dog to complete together! Trust us - holding a V-sit is much more fun when you have your dog jumping over,or crawling underneath your legs during the exercise.

The fun is with your dog, the effective is through a full work-out with a certified fitness trainer.
