You Can Now Workout Doggy-Style In London…

It’s official. The city has gone barking mad. We’ve seen a fair few workout fads over our time, from morning raves to floating yoga, but now there’s actually a workout class that has people acting like dogs. Blue Cross, one of Britain’s oldest pet charity, have launched the world’s first fitness class in which humans work-out like canines.

The workout, which was created by qualified Personal Trainer Born Barikor, includes HIIT style game of fetch, tug-of-war, some downward doggy stretches and even digging. It’s not only designed to get your heart rate up (and, yes, make you look hilarious to joggers passing by on two legs), but it’s also been devised as a way to get people to understand and appreciate the health benefits that dogs get from their favourite outdoor activities.

Don’t worry, all exercise is strictly off-lead. So long as you behave yourself, of course.

You can register for the classes, which will run every morning from Monday 30th January – Friday 3rd February from 7.30am – 8.15am in Victoria park. You can sign up for a free place here, however, a donation to Blue Cross is suggested.

Meeting by the Park Pavillion – Victoria Park, Grove Rd, London E3 5TB.
