'The Ultimate Doggy Workout' will be shared online far and wide, helping to begin their career as the newest pet-fluencer in the fitness world. They'll be the face of dog and human workouts, and encourage others to work out with their pets - which comes with plenty of benefits.
Luke Hughes, founder of Origym and level 4 personal trainer, said: “Working out with your dog comes with a whole heap of benefits over and above keeping you both fit and healthy. For this reason, we want to work with a fitness fanatic and their furry friend to create a workout regime that is effective and safe for both human and dog to do together.
“Having a reliable furry friend to be your cardio companion is not just highly motivating, but it also can ease stress, improve mental health and help to reduce feelings of loneliness. Exercising your dog is vitally important for their health too, and helps to prevent boredom and destructive behaviour.”
