K9 Fit Club is expanding. The club is billed as the nation's first indoor workout facility dedicated to the health, fitness and wellness of dogs and their owners. They have recently announced the addition of three new certified licensee locations in St. Louis, Portland, and Washington, D.C.
K9 Fit Club's programs and classes were developed and taught by veterinarians, doctors, certified animal behaviorists, and personal trainers (both human and canine) to ensure a safe, fun and effective workout for both the dog and its owner.
Those opening a K9 Fit Club location are required to attend a three-day Certification and Training Program at the company's National Training Institute. Modules include Veterinary Standards, Dog Obedience, and Class Practicum. Completion of the program allows them to participate and teach both individual and group classes.
Each class is led by a K9 Fit Club Certified Personal Trainer and a K9 Fit Club Certified Dog Trainer or Wrangler. Classes offered at club locations may include:
- Bow Wow Bootcamp
- Oh My Dog Bootcamp
- Intro to K9 Fit Club
- Sit and Be Fit
- Waggin' Wheelchair
"The introduction of these new locations will allow more people and their pets to live a happy and healthy way of life," said Tricia Montgomery, founder and president of K9 Fit Club. "Why choose between working out and walking your best friend? Now you can combine them both. Our clients have grown to appreciate the convenience that K9 Fit Club offers to help people achieve their total health objectives. The addition of these new locations creates another opportunity to Change Lives One Dog at a Time™."
Other locations opening by year-end include Boston, Tampa, Raleigh Durham, Vancouver, Farmington and San Francisco.
K9 Fit Club was developed from the experiences of founder, Tricia Montgomery. During her tenure as the Executive Director for the Chicago Veterinary Medical Association, she formulated a weight loss and exercise plan for her personal use. After losing over 130 pounds, Ms. Montgomery recognized the need and opportunity for a formal nationwide program of health, fitness, and wellness designed around people and dogs.
