FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 1:22 Eat Real Food




Have you heard the news from the FitLabPGH Labs??? We’ve introduced Labrador Lessons from the FitLabPGH Podcast! Every Thursday, we’ll be bringing you wisdom from the FitLabPGH Labradors (with occasional input from the cats).

Our message for 1-6-22:

Eat Real Food

The Labs heard that FitLabPGH’s theme for January is Eat Real Food, and they endorse the message! When choosing dog treats, they pick treats with ingredients they can pronounce…like the pumpkin biscuits from Portland Pet Food Company.

Whether you have 4 or 2 legs, the labs encourage you to fuel your body with “real” food, then hydrate, and get up and move more!

FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 2:22 There’s No Such Thing As Bad Weather




Have you heard the news from the FitLabPGH Labs??? We’ve introduced Labrador Lessons from the FitLabPGH Podcast! Every Thursday, we’ll be bringing you wisdom from the FitLabPGH Labradors (with occasional input from the cats).

Our message for 1-13-22:

There’s no such thing as bad weather!

The Labs love to move outside…no matter the weather…ok, they’re not huge fans of summer heat, but if we seek shade and stop for water breaks, they don’t complain…as for the weather humans tend to dislike…rain and snow…those are the BEST days for the labradors 

Whether you have 4 or 2 legs, the labs encourage you to do what you need to do to Be Prepared (proper gear, extra water, plan your route accordingly…) then Get Outside and Just Move…Regardless of Weather!

Do’s and Don’ts for Moving in 2022 – a Video Podcast




This week’s FitLabPGH Podcast release is a video podcast: Do’s and Don’ts for Moving in 2022. We encourage everyone to make movement a lifestyle…this year and every year! Whether you’re just starting a movement routine or you’re already a lifetime mover, here are 5 tips for an enjoyable, and SAFE, movement practice (for you…and for those around you).

Listen to the audio or watch the video below to enjoy the Labradors making movement part of their lifestyle.

  1. DO: Just Move. Your movement practice doesn’t need to be complicated, scheduled, or trending on social media. Take a walk. Ride your bike. Dance in your living room. Just Move.
  2. DON’T Put Yourself in Dangerous Situations. Just because you CAN try an extreme sport or ride your bike on a busy road, doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. Stay safe today, so that you can keep moving tomorrow.
  3. DO: Make Movement a Priority. Life is busy. Schedule time for regular movement.
  4. DON’T Be a Jerk. Translation: It’s not ALL about you. Share the trail (or gym equipment). Leash your dog in public spaces. Do your best to allow other movers to enjoy their movement experience.
  5. DO: Be adaptable. You may not have time to do your fantasy workout. Your fitness class may have been canceled. Adapt. Find something you CAN do to keep moving.

Take home message: find ways to include safe and fun movement in your lifestyle today, and you will look forward to making movement part of your lifestyle in the future. So just move…be safe…and move more.

Check out the FitLabPGH Movement Tips and Lifestyle Hacks videos every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for tips and hacks to help you, and your dog(s) move more…move better…and stay safe…throughout 2022.
