Luke Hughes, Founder of OriGym and Level 4 Personal Trainer, said, “Exercising your dog comes with a whole host of benefits beyond just keeping you fit and healthy. That’s why we want to work with a fitness fanatic and his furry friend to create an exercise program that’s effective and safe for both human and canine.
“Having a trusty furry friend as a cardio companion is not only very motivating, but it can also reduce stress, improve mental health and help reduce feelings of loneliness. Exercising your dog is also vital to their health and helps prevent boredom and destructive behavior.”
Both owner and dog are given the opportunity to work closely with OriGym’s team of personal trainers to perform and film a variety of workouts for other dog owners to follow to help keep fit along with their pup. This special program is created in conjunction with a canine expert to ensure the exercises are safe and beneficial for both the dog and the owner, allowing both to train together and reap the health and fitness benefits together.
