Hi! I’m Patti Fousek – dog mom of two and nationally certified Personal Trainer and canine conditioning expert.
My passion is to teach people how to get fit and healthy by changing their mindset, eating habits, and creating easy-to-follow workouts you can do at home. I’m also a dog mom of two and have created fitness programs for people like me to workout with their dogs!
I currently provide In-Home Personal Training and Fit with Fido classes in Southern Maine and Seacoast New Hampshire areas, Remote Personal Training, Nutrition Coaching, and Canine Fitness Coaching online and in person.
Why work with me?
You see, I started on my own weight loss journey five years ago. After meeting my husband, I got comfortable and gained over 30 lbs. I got busy with work and simply stopped working out. My metabolism was slower than a slug, I had no energy, I was super tired, and I before I knew it, I was up 3 dress sizes!
It wasn’t until I met a personal trainer that I got inspired to workout hard. Due to her inspiration, I started running at the age of 40, completed a few 5K races, and completed the Tough Mudder at the age of 41. I then became a Certified Personal Trainer so that I could “pay it forward.”
While training for various 5K’s and the Tough Mudder, I found it a struggle to balance my training with exercising my dogs. I started taking the dogs with me on my runs and even worked with them on obedience drills while I did strength work. Then I had an “a-ha” moment and The Nerdy Dog Fitness was born.
