Dogs are loyal, judgement-free, happy, and committed to regular exercise. How could I NOT want to be just like my dog, Athena? Read 5 reasons why I want to be more like my dog in 2018, and how Planet Fitness can help! #ad #JudgementFreeZone #PlanetFitness

It’s no secret how much I enjoy my dog, Athena.

In fact, she has helped me achieve my New Year’s goals and resolutions for three years now. January is always my time to reassess the previous year’s goals and resolutions, and see how I can make new ones and help maintain momentum and achieve even higher goals in every new year. Athena is the start of it all. About two years ago, I was feeling lower than ever, physically, and I made a decision to stay active with Athena at the dog park. That way, we’d both be battling stress, keeping our heart rates up, and enjoying time together multiple times a week. This year, the dog park is iced over and the trails are not passable. I’m so glad I found a way to achieve my New Year’s goals indoors! In fact, it’s right at the next town over:

Last week, I went to my nearest Planet Fitness location to check it out and find out membership options. I had taken the kids with me, because they were off for school vacation, but I watched their jaws drop in awe at the great atmosphere of the place. The thing is, I love for them to know how I work on achieving goals and making a better life for myself. Also, Planet Fitness is having a new membership sale that began with the new year on January 1st! From January 1st through January 10th, 2018, new members can join any Planet Fitness location for just $1 down and then $10 a month. Planet Fitness has some big goals for 2018! Like me, they feel it’s important to be kind to one another.

It’s time to celebrate all that makes us unique, different and special, and importantly – to live Judgement Free in 2018.

And beyond!

And that’s what I love most about Athena, and other dogs. I love that dogs truly embody what it means to be Judgement Free. They love you on your good days and bad days, they don’t judge the choices you make, and they love you the same whether you’ve been gone for 5 minutes or 5 days. I love that Athena helps me to live a happy, fulfilling and judgement-free life. That’s why my goal for 2018 is to be more like her! Here are 5 ways I want to be more like my dog in 2018!

1 – She is happy to see everyone. Like I said, she’s a judgement free dog. I love that she wags her tail for everyone and doesn’t care your age, your skin color, your gender, your religion, your looks, etc. She loves all people equally.

2 – She likes the good and important things in life – like love and time together. Athena doesn’t ask for much – but loves two good meals a day and some toys. Otherwise, she’s content and at peace. She lives in the present, which I wish I could do.

3 – Athena sees the world as extraordinary. She’s actually not much different from my kids in that way, especially when they were younger. She stops to smell every rose, greet every person, notice every blade of grass, and enjoy it all too.

4 – Athena is loyal. She is also kind and patient – traits I wish I had!

5 – She has a strong commitment to physical activity. No matter the weather or day, she is up for moving her body. That’s why I felt inspired to go to Planet Fitness again to take advantage of the new membership sale. Find your nearest location here and take advantage of those benefits! As I said above, new members can join any location from January 1st-10th for just $1 down (enrollment fee) and $10 a month after. Many Planet Fitness locations are open and staffed 24/7, and free fitness training is included in all memberships. Then there’s the Judgement Free Zone®!

That means it’s a hassle-free environment! There’s also brand name cardio and strength equipment, fully equipped locker rooms, flat screen televisions, and small group fitness instruction by certified trainers through the pe @ pf® program. And there’s so much more! Like how Planet Fitness provides members with an opportunity to connect and support one another with “Planet of Triumphs.” This is an online community that celebrates all accomplishments and inspiration stories of Planet Fitness members. I love that “Planet of Triumphs” provides an online platform for members to recognize their big and small triumphs, share their stores, and encourage others. They really believe that everyone belongs.

What are your New Year’s goals? How would you like to be more like your dog?

5 Ways I Want to Be Like My Dog in 2018: Planet Fitness New Membership Sale — 5 Comments

  1. This is seriously awesome and love how you compared yourself to Athena here. Btw, sounds like Athena and Elsa could be twins, too as they truly have also much of the above also in common 🙂

  2. Ha! I had not thought of it that way, but yes! My dog has a wonderful attitude! Planet Fitness is the best and I was just at mine yesterday. I love everything about their mission and identity!

  3. Today is definitely not the day to be out at the dog park… at least not for me! Snowing like crazy here, and I bet you are getting it too. Nice to have an indoor option. I no longer have a dog, but what I always wanted when I did was to be able to get down on the floor in a sunny spot and sleep:)
