As an Animal Communicator, I decipher each ache and pain of animals with regards to joints and aging.  I also talk to many animals who have “human” diseases. I began to think about, “How can I help in a long term way, quickly?”

That’s why I created the “In This Together Fitness/Wellness Challenge.” When you register  for this challenge, we will be in this together!  You can update your progress as you go within this form, and we will celebrate and encourage you along the way. We have also included social sharing buttons so you can keep your friends updated on your progress and get them involved as well!

For joining, you will get regular email tips and support for all types of animal health issues. Visit our FB page every day for tips and share your joys and frustrations!

The “In This Together Fitness/Wellness Challenge” is a way to instill some healthy animal habits.  Register here. Tell us your story and give us an update on your progress. You can update your own log, and you can share your fitness challenge with your friends in various social channels.

There are 3 categories for 3 species (horses, dogs and cats):

  1. Senior Swagger – get the older animals moving to keep their joint health, digestion going. Explore massage and other techniques to improve flexibility.
  2. Athletic Ascension – for the human/animal team that wants to play a bigger game– whether that is with your dog in agility, moving to a higher jump with your horse or other goals.
  3. Get Fit Together – this is meant to drop some pounds for you and your animal companion.

And please, before starting any exercise regime or weight loss plan, consult your doctor for yourself and your pet’s veterinarian for appropriate goals. We want to encourage the development of HEALTHY habits and gentle progress. No pets or people should be put at any risk. For example, CWALU teacher/trainer Kara Udziela has been advised to have her Maltese lose 2 pounds, BUT, the vet advises no more than one pound in six weeks, so Kara will follow his guidelines.

Through this journey together you will get a daily wellness/fitness inspiration. We will share nutrition, fitness, bodywork techniques and hear from experts like veterinarians, health coaches and more.

You can register for the challenge and track your progress with all of us.

I know for me, I want to keep 3 older animals going, 2 horses and 1 dog. I need to help my cat Henry drop a pound or two, (yes, my vet said he has a beer belly), and God knows, I need to drop some pounds. I personally have been saying I want to lose this last 10 pounds for several years. I am hoping we will do this together! And equally important, I have had riding goals with my horses that I have never really followed through with because I have allowed work to get in the way.

Let’s Get Fit!
