About Kimberly Chase
Some people prefer the extra motivation, focus, privacy or accountability of working with someone face to face. Others like gentle guidance and knowing they are performing exercises correctly while their workout programs are safe, challenging and constructive. Some people just learn better in person. I can't always make the sessions painless but can always make them fun, productive and that way time flys!
Groups are employees of a corporation, families, couples, friends, neighbors at a community pool, members of a country club, or co-workers that have more fun together and are motivated by each other. Group fitness classes focus on things like TRX, boot camp, HIIT (high intensity interval training), core strength, stretching, Pilates, weight training, running and indoor cycling. They usually don't require much equipment either.
We need to care for our bodies as much as our dogs to have success and longevity in agility. It doesn't take lots of time but there is specific training that can help handlers gain better balance, agility, deceleration, quicker acceleration and speed on course. We can also use exercise programs to help prevent injury and quicken recovery.
