MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Many would be lying if they said they’ve ever stuck with a New Year resolution that involved working out. If your situation is similar, and you’re a dog owner, The Canine Coach might be able to help.

Martha Hoffman started attending The Canine Coach’s group fitness classes after she injured her knee. Around the same time she adopted a dog, Barry White.

“I needed to be doing something, and I just got him recently so it was a good opportunity to bond,” Hoffman said during a Friday evening class at The Canine Coach’s St. Louis Park location.

The group classes allow dog owners to workout alongside their dog. Each pair spends about two minutes at workout stations that circle the large warehouse-like space.

Canine Coach owner Maureen Haggerty said, while it may look like the dogs are just eating treats and running around, the class could actually solves a problem some dog owners face.

“You’re getting your dog out of the house, and you’re getting yourself moving,” she said.

The classes cost $16 per session and are available at The Canine Coach’s four locations. They’ll start doing outdoor classes when the weather permits. For more information, click here.
