About Go Fetch Run
Go Fetch Run provides opportunities for people to exercise alongside their dogs, improving the physical and mental well-being of both and strengthening the bond between dogs and their owners.
Angi Aramburu (AFAA Group Fitness, Stroller Strides, Fit4Baby), the founder of Go Fetch Run, became step-mom to a little dog through marriage. As you may know, some dogs tend to be one-person dogs. Chiquita was not nice to Angi. However, Angi found herself feeling guilty every time she walked out the door to run or go to the gym without taking the little ankle-biter. So, as the human in the relationship, she felt it was her responsibility to mend fences and make friends. She began taking Chiquita on runs in the park and found that the dog's behavior improved. At the same time, Angi was also teaching a stroller-based workout in the park with moms and babies. Then it clicked! Why not work out with your dog? They’re always willing, and let’s face it, many city dogs don’t get the amount of exercise they really need, which can lead to behavioral problems, obesity, and even depression.
With her little dog Chiquita, Angi was able to adapt her fitness routine to include her dog and both got a great workout. Thus, Go Fetch Run was born!
