Fancy meeting you at the gym, Luna!
Please allow me to lick the perspiration from your pearly whiskers.
What’s that? You’re not perspiring?
Oh, I see why…
It looks like your treadmill is broken.
Don’t worry! It will take me just a moment to sniff out the short circuit.
What do you mean by “OFF,” Luna?
Do you prefer for the treadmill to be off–which kind of defeats the purpose? Or do you want me off the treadmill?
Or maybe both?
What do you mean I’m not keeping up with my 2018 New Year’s Resolution?
I resolved to use the treadmill.
I never specified how I’d use it.
Now go away. You are messing with my napping…er…wellness program.
They say you should do some cardio first thing in the morning.
My daily, morning routine focuses on Foot Pounce.
I think Human Mommy benefits from this, too, as she moves her ginormous paws relatively fast.
For a Human, that is.
My Cat Tree is great for cardio, for strength work, for claw-sharpening and for naps.
Maybe if your exercise equipment included napping options, you Humans would be more likely to use it.
I read an informative WordPress Post yesterday.
I learned that, at a mere 15 years old, I am considered “geriatric.”
I don’t feel “geriatric,” not at all.
Just look at how high I can jump!
The trouble with gyms is that you can end up waiting a super long time to use your favorite equipment.
Don’t even think about starting a conversation or advising the pretty Kitty gym members on proper weight-lifting technique or the right way to face on the treadmill.
At best, you’ll get a laser-like glare. At worst, you’ll get a hiss, some truly un-ladylike words, and a couple of new painful scratches on your handsome Canine nose.
Frisbee, check. Tug, check. Wrestling, check. Squirrel Chase, check and double check.
You know it’s been a good, hard workout when you collapse like a Meowie afterwards.
Meowie-Inspired Basic Yoga, check.
There’s more than one way to workout on a treadmill.
For example, you can use the console for a good stretch.
You can use the arms as a jungle gym to increase your strength and balance.
Don’t worry if you get tangled up now and again.
It takes time to master new fitness routines.
Have you hit a performance plateau in your favorite sports of Fetch, Tug-of-War, Frisbee, Wrestling and Squirrel Chase?
You haven’t necessarily peaked–it may just be time to switch up your training routine.
Jump on your Humans’ treadmill or elliptical or stationary bike and crank it up.
Don’t worry–you won’t get in trouble. It’s not like your Humans actually use their home gym.
Sure, exercise is good for you but overexertion is dangerous.
