Get Fit While Walking Your Dog and Socialize It at the Time

Fido Fit is a wonderful exercise program that allows Houston dog owners to get fit and socialize with their dogs at the same time. Members of Fido Fit Houston meet once a week for group runs and walks; and after each session, there is a wellness seminar by human and dog professionals (e.g. dieticians and animal behaviorists).

Fido Fit Houston has a training schedule whereby members train on their own (with their dogs) twice a week; and on the weekends, everyone in the group gets together for a workout and a seminar.

Typical Fido Fit Session

1. Each meeting begins with a warm-up followed by a walk or run.

2. After each workout there is a seminar (alternating between human and dog topics).

3. Everyone gets to socialize and play in the park.

The best part about Fido Fit is that following the program, members are encouraged to participate in a walk/run that will benefit an animal welfare organization.
