Working out is so much more fun when you do it with a friend… especially a furry, four-legged one. My dog, Tuesday, is wildly enthusiastic about his new role as my fitness partner. And we don't just stick to walks around the block-I've found ways to include him in all areas of exercise: endurance (going for hikes in the canyons where I live), speed (chasing him around the house when he steals one of my socks), strength-training (lugging giant bags of kibble home from the pet store), and stretching (retrieving lost tennis balls that have rolled under the couch). Tuesday is always happy to provide the motivation I need to work out.
