The FBGs love our dogs. LOVE our dogs. (That’s mine at left wondering what I’m doing at my desk and can she please be included?) So when Jenn and I have the opportunity to work out with our dogs, we go for it! Walks are more fun with company, after all, and a good game of fetch is a good stress reliever for the throwing party as well as the fetcher.
Self magazine must have read our minds—or known that there are just as many pet-crazy people out there like us. The magazine has put together a pooch-perfect workout: Sweat with your Pet. How presh is that?
And working out with your dog isn’t just cute: It can make you work harder for longer! Dogs don’t take no for an answer, and research shows that people who stroll with a canine companion increase their pace 28 percent.
The routine includes a cardio workout with six sculpting moves—along with plenty of poochy-keen tips and plenty of doggie accessories. Flying solo without a Fido? The mag shows you how to do it all by your lonesome as well!
