I hate to exercise, but I'll do it if I have a personal trainer. I've done it before, trimmed off some weight and buffed up. I am terrible at keeping myself healthy. I had a trainer one time that gave me a diet to stick to and a program to be on. 

Sometimes you take on the will of the dog. Everyone knows, when you own a dog you have to take them for walks. Sometimes it's just to take a bathroom break. According to DNA, experts say studies show dog owners walk more, walk faster, and are more likely to enjoy an active lifestyle because of their companion animal.


In my opinion dog owners are even more thoughtful and can use their experience raising dogs in raising kids. Not that it's the same thing, but you have to care for them, make sure they are fed, get them exercise, and be there when they are hurt or need care from their fears. DNA goes on to say that dogs are the reason behind two-thirds, 66 percent, of the walks their owners take each week, according to a recent survey of more than 1,011 adults commissioned by pet food company Mars Petcare.

DNA also says, according to the poll some 44 percent of dog owners aged 65 and older exercise on a weekly basis because of their dog.

Want a great exercise trainer? Get a dog, they will make sure you are out and walking on a regular basis, and they come home with you and provide love and affection for you too. Tell me the last time your personal trainer offered that for free.
