Years before our oldest daughter was born, my husband and I talked about bringing home a new puppy but with busy traveling work schedules it took quite a while before we had the flexibility for the new family addition. We both always loved siberian huskies and made a decision to get a puppy over 10 years ago. Our husky, Sophie, adds so much joy to our home and gives us a wonderful judgement free attitude. Bonding with your dog is so important and has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Sophie was my first baby and we have such a close relationship. She loves me just the same on good days or bad and inspires me to be great everyday. With Sophie in mind, this year my resolution is to live happy, fulfilled and judgement free. First up on fulfilling my resolution was visiting Planet Fitness for their new membership sale as they’re known for having a hassle free, welcoming environment designed to make everyone feel comfortable. Many clubs are open and staffed 24/7 making it easy to fit in the free fitness training included in all memberships.
The January new membership sale now through January 10th gives you unlimited access to the gym for only $1 enrollment and $10 a month thereafter. Just like with Sophie, some days I have time and energy to spend hours with her and other times my days just don’t have the same flexibility. Planet Fitness (aka the Judgement Free Zone®) has equipment to use at your own leisure and small group fitness instruction by a certified trainer for the days you have structured time in your schedule.
Walks with Sophie are a favorite time in my day because no matter kind of day we’ve had, she is always so excited to get out and explore with our family. At 10 years old, she is still just as playful and happy as she was the first days we brought her home.
Our daughters have a very special bond with Sophie too but her and I share a special relationship that continues to grow stronger each day. She has seen me through so many great successes and hardships. She knows when quiet time is appreciated and has been by my side through every challenge over the past 10 years. Like me, Sophie has grown and changed over the years too. We’ve evolved together and without any words of validation, this sweet girl gets me without fail everyday.
Sophie is a great motivator for me to spend time in the gym but I know it needs to be a prioritized part of my everyday routine for me to stay committed. I spend so much of my work time online so I was very happy to learn about the Planet Fitness online community, Planet of Triumphs, to celebrate accomplishments and share inspirational stories. Sophie is part of my everyday inspiration but by joining the online community, I have a great support system for encouragement too.
As Sophie is getting older I feel so much more appreciative of the moments we spend together. Feeling strong and empowered will help me be the great person Sophie thinks I am.
Stepping inside Planet Fitness is the first step to a long and rewarding beginning to your Judgement Free Zone.
Do you share a special bond with a dog in your home too?
