“We’ll see”, the age-old answer to “Can I have a puppy?” has been replaced with “Well, Okay” as the MissionFiT family expands to welcome new four-legged friends! In fact, new adoptions are taking place faster than athletes can complete a set of burpees! And some new “athletes” are even trying to help Mom complete the reps!
Hey! If A Dog Can Do The Workout…
Well, maybe that’s an exaggeration. However, Zooming into a MissionFiT workout is more fun these days. Early one morning, before a class, one athlete said “Coach, I’m so sorry. I forgot to mute myself – can you mute me so I can discipline this dog?” Now that’s not something you will hear at just any old gym!! Watch this if you can relate!
