Working out with a friend can keep you motivated and hold you accountable on your path to reaching your fitness goals. But what do you do when you can’t find a consistent work out buddy? Find a dog. Doesn’t even have to be your dog. You can borrow aforementioned noncommittal workout buddy’s dog and take them for a workout.

The right breeds of dogs (for instance a beautiful golden retriever named Marilyn) can be the best workout companions, especially since exercise is a necessity in their lives. So find a furry friend, preferably one that likes fetching, and head to your nearest beach or park to do some cross-training. Read on for the Dog Beach Workout…

Ask any surfer what the name ‘Katin’ means to them and they’ll claim the K-man invented boardshorts in the 1950′s and started the renowned surf competition, the Katin Classic Pro/Am. These pioneers were born in Surfside, CA and in an era of out-sourcing, still keep their production at home in SoCal.
