How would you like to take your pup to the gym with you?

K9 Fit Club, which bills itself as the Nation's First Indoor Workout Facility dedicated to the health, fitness and wellness of pooches and their people, is expanding nationwide, with a location planned in the Yelm/Joint Base Lewis-McChord area.

K9 Fit Club was developed last year by Tricia Montgomery, who lost more than 130 pounds by exercising with her dog. Montgomery said her dog lost 22 percent of his body weight.

Classes at K9 Fit Club include:

Bow Wow Bootcamp, which combines strength, agility, and cardio in a high-intensity class that includes circuit training and station work

Oh My Dog Bootcamp, a level one class fitness style boot camp good for all levels of fitness

Sit and Be Fit, designed for those who have not exercised, including seniors, morbidly obese, people with certain types of injuries and persons with disabilities.
