Puplates Booty challenge

This is designed to work on engaging and activating the glutes which are often underworked from people sitting too much causing problems like lower back pain, tight hips and more. Your dog’s lose muscle in their hind-limb first as 60% of their bodyweight is in their upper body so we will be working on their glute muscles as well! Each week we will progress with more challenging moves.

What you get and why this program works:
  • Inlcudes 4 weeks of excercies that target each of your glutes, with progressions each week
  • Average completion for each workout is 30-45 minutes of your time
  • Access to a private Facebook Group with our Fido Tribe
  • One Time Fee and Lifetime Access!
  • This is included with a monthly or yearly membership, learn more here
  • Enjoy bonding with your dog and more!

Learn More About My Story and How I Can Help You.

I have always been into health & fitness, but It wasn’t until I did a 13 mile mud run event that I gained more of an understanding with specific exercise training and healthy eating. I realized all these benefits I was gaining from training and eating healthy, the more I wanted to improve. That meant more time at the gym and less time with my dogs, Oscar & Leah.

I have always loved dogs since I was a little kid and always knew I wanted to own my own dog business when I grew up. Growing up I walked neighborhoods dogs for $1 and taught my previous dog Molly agility. After high school I went to school to become a professional dog groomer. I groomed full-time professionally for about 10 years and groom now by appointment only.

Dogs are my life. I love my dogs. They are all very loving. Oscar is very energetic and Leah is more of a coach potato. My newest addition is Ike, who was my foster failure. He came into my life and I had to keep him. I love standard poodles, but also want to get a border collie as well to add to the pack!

I then decided to combine my love for dogs & fitness together and in July 2015 Fitness with Fido was ready to share with everyone else!!

Kim’s why: “I love dogs. I mean, that’s just really why I do it. I want people to be healthier because that means they’re doing more with their dogs. We should live healthier lives because the dogs, they’re not with us long enough.”

Why you can trust us?

We have taught over 100’s of classes to know dogs don’t like to stay still for a whole hour and we try to minimize floor work because we know that’s typically when your dog might try to lick you, jump on you, sit on you and the list goes on! We rotate back and forth, incorportating them into some of the moves, while also teaching them to respect your space when it’s your turn to workout.  

Why Does Fitness with Fido’s Style of Training Work?

Many programs are tailored only to humans or only to dogs, so there’s not quite anything like this on the market. We have found the perfect blend to keep your dog engaged while helping you get fit! In return it also helps you save time while bonding with your dog. We understand most pet parents work all day and are tired when they get home and don’t get to spend as much needed time with their dog or consistently have to choose between going to the gym or walking their dog, but not anymore we want you to be able to do both at the same time!

  • Time Saving
  • Bonding
  • Minimized Floor Work
  • Both get in shape and stay healthy

These duos made a change in their Lives – So Can You!

Is this plan right for you?

Who’s this program for?
  • Time saving for busy dog parents
  • Dog parents who want to get fit and hate leaving their dog at home or not sure what to do or where to start
  • Dog enthusiasts who focus more on their dogs and not so much on themselves
  • Fitness enthusiast who aren’t sure how to include their dog besides running
  • Dogs left at home all day with minimal exercise
  • Reactive dogs who can’t go out in group classes

Who’s this not for?

  • Non dog owners – You can still complete the program, but you would be skipping over a lot of exercises that are geared for the dogs
  • Body Builders…. You can still complete the program as a bonding experience with your dog and so they can exercise, but you would still need to spend more time working out to be competition ready.
  • Dogs younger 6 months or until their growth plates close. Otherwise modifications will be needed like low jump height, etc.

Anything can be modified for you or for your dog or both of you. It’s important to listen to your body and watch your dog’s body cues so you can enjoy the process and have it become part of your lifestyle! This is not just a workout, it’s a Lifestyle and I hope you will join me in it.
