Dawn’s personal workout routine as well as her personal training business model completely changed when she got her Cairn terrier, Jack, in 2005. She took everything outside because she always felt bad leaving Jack behind when he liked to work out too! She hasn’t been back to the gym since.
Incorporating balls, bands, hand weights, playground equipment, benches and nature—she was able to get a great workout and breathe fresh air at the same time. Jack became part of her fitness routine and they both had fun and got a great workout! Your dog just wants to be with you, no dog wants to sit home alone while you are out having fun!
Dawn began sharing this type of workout with her clients and they loved it. So she decided to start the first fitness program in San Diego that encompasses both you and your dog in a circuit style workout that will train cardio, strength, balance, yoga and dog obedience all in an hour workout.
This quickly expanded into other forms of exercise with your dog. Now, Leash Your Fitness is the ONLY fitness company in the country that incorporates: hiking, surfing, kayaking, camping, yoga, trail running, upper & lower body classes & our original boot camp classes ALL WITH YOUR DOG!
Any dog trainer will tell you that your dog will behave much better when he is mentally stimulated and exercised until he is tired. The dog park and/or a daily walk is fine, but to really tire your dog you need to mentally AND physically tire him.
