CHICAGO, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- K9 Fit Club® – the leader in canine and human fitness – is pleased to introduce the nation's first-ever online certification program for human/canine fitness certification at The 2014 IDEA World Fitness Convention, being held August 13-17 in Anaheim, CA. The new model offers a flexible and convenient opportunity to become a Certified K9 Fit Club Trainer, and once certified, you are provided with access to tools, information, a pop up K9 Fit Kit™, and support from K9 Fit Club – everything you need to run a successful business. K9 Fit Club will be the exclusive canine/human fitness exhibitor at the event.
"This is the first time that we have included canine fitness in the IDEA World Fitness & Nutrition Expo Hall," said Jim LaMarca, Director Brand Strategy, IDEA Health & Fitness. "We understand how important it is to keep our animal friends as fit and healthy as we are!"
K9 Fit Club was founded in 2012 by Tricia Montgomery and was the nation's first facility for both humans and canines to use together. As public demand for the program grew – with interest from enthusiasts all over the country – the online certification program was established.
"Our goal is to span the country with our unique fitness programs and develop certified trainers dedicated to getting – and keeping – both dogs and owners healthy," says Ms. Montgomery, Founder/President of K9 Fit Club. "The new online certification program allows flexibility for those who work full-time or part-time, or who exercise with their dog as a hobby or just for fun. We want to give everyone the opportunity to make money doing what they love and loving what they do."
After shedding 130 pounds several years ago by working out with her dog Louie, Ms. Montgomery was inspired to help all people and their dogs stay healthy and fit together, thus K9 Fit Club was born. Ms. Montgomery's pit bull Zeus is the program's "poster dog" and resident guinea pig.
Ms. Montgomery notes, "Pet obesity has reached an all-time high, and I personally relate to the struggle with weight loss, which is why our participation in an event like IDEA, which focuses on overall health and fitness – for everyone – is so important to us."
The programs were developed with input from personal trainers, veterinarians, dog trainers, doctors, and certified dog behaviorists. Programs are recommended after an initial assessment of both person and dog, and are available for all fitness levels in all modalities of fitness – as well as specifically designed programs for children, seniors, and people with certain disabilities. K9 Fit Club will host "Begging for Beginners™" and "Bow Wow Bootcamp™" demonstrations its booth during the IDEA Convention. These demonstrations will provide attendees examples of what they will learn during a K9 Fit Club Certification, as well as showcase the basic moves of human/canine fitness and how to improve well-being through exercise, mental health, and fitness techniques.
K9 Fit Club currently has numerous certified trainers across the country, with many more now enrolled in the program. Online certification typically takes anywhere from a weekend to one month to obtain, depending on the flexibility of your schedule and costs $599. A $200 discount is applied for certified personal trainers.

Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
