    Your first Leash Your Fitness class is free.

    Fitness boot camps are nothing new, but now a fitness boot camp that’s Fido-friendly has arrived in San Diego

    Leash Your Fitness is the brainchild of certified personal trainer Dawn Celapino, who said her life changed when she got her Cairn terrier Jack a few years ago. She said she always felt bad leaving Jack behind while she went to work out at the gym, so she took her workout outside, incorporating balls and benches and nature. 

    Celapino started sharing the workouts with her personal training clients, who loved loved them. Next she decided to start a fitness program that, in one hour, rolls together a circuit style cardio, strength, balance and yoga workout with dog obedience training. 

    The classes are offered at the Markim Pet Resort in Carmel Valley, as well as at Balboa Park and Mission Bay. There are plans to expand the boot camps across the county.
