We are less than a week away from the first night of Get Fit For Fido and we are having a LOT of feedback about coming! Here’s some basic information for you and some answers to common questions we are hearing.
1. Q: Do you have to be a current like at Emerge to participate?
A: No, Anyone can take a Fido class! All we ask is that if you are not a current client, please stop at the front desk and sign our waiver for the night. If the
participant is under 18, they need to have a guardian sign for them.
2. Q: How old do you have to be to participate?
A: The minimum age is 5, but a guardian must be present with all participants between the ages of 5-12.
3. Q: Do we need to sign up in advance?
A: Nope! UNLESS you are planning on bringing a large party of 8 or more, then we’d like a heads up to prepare!
4. Q: Is there a maximum amount of participants who can take the class?
A: No, we are shutting down nearly the entire gym to make room for Fido. We are preparing for each class to have around 50 people.
5. Q: How many classes can we attend?
A: You can participate in as many as you want!
6: Q: If we donate a large item, can it count for our entire family, or for one person for multiple classes?
A: Sure! Honestly, we are just thankful for your generous donation and hope you have a fun time (And sweat a little too!)
7. Q: How long will the class be?
A: The Boot Camp is scheduled in a one hour time frame. In that hour you will be instructed on how to do each exercise as well as you will get a few breaks
to catch your breath or get a drink of water. Plan on 30-40 minutes of working out!
8. Q: I’ve never taken a boot camp before, will I be able to do it?
A: Absolutely! The key is to go at your pace. Each exercise will be able to be modified for your fitness level. And if you’re feeling worn down, take a
moment to catch your breath. There will be everyone of all ages and fitness levels, but you can make the workout work for you. That’s the great thing
about boot camp!
9. Q: What do I need to bring to Fido?
A: Just bring your friends, family, and a donation to Five Acres, and you’re good to go! We have towels available and Ameristar Casino has donated bottled
water for all of our participants! We will have a LOT of people in here and a space for you to place your belongings, but we ask to keep all items in the
cubby holes or on the hooks.
10: Q: I am not physically able to partake in boot camp. Can I still come up?
A: Definitely! Please do! We have vendors coming up each night as well as a lot of raffles. Three of the four nights, Five Acres will also bring a dog that
available for adoption.
