Elsa is sure that it is playtime.
Trying to force a toss.
When it doesn't work, she tries playing with my gloved hand.
I started my workout with leg raises and moved onto squats and lunges with a 25lb. dumbell. I wear my gloves when I do any sort of lifting and Elsa thinks that my gloves are pretty great. She loves to nibble on them and considers it free for all wrestling match time when I don my gloves.
Trying to drop the ball on my face. I'll sure throw it if she drops it there right?
Dropped beside me as I do my planks.
Heading up the stairs where Elsa awaits.
Waiting to attack me.
Then it was onto the stairs. I lunge up two steps at a time; again this is pretty great fun as far as Elsa is concerned. She waits at the top to attack me each time; then runs back down the stairs with me and we do it all over again. She is great motivation and keeps me laughing through my workout. She stays with me the whole time I run up and down the stairs, great work out for her too.

After my "at home" workout, Elsa and I hit the park for a power run and walk. If you don't want to go to a gym, you don't have to. With a few pieces of inexpensive equipment, you can work out at home. The bonus is that you can workout alongside your dog.
