British Military Fitness in Duthie Park


Humans are odd creatures, aren't they?

Many these days have sedentary jobs and so get out of shape, but for reasons beyond my comprehension they reject the obvious solution of adopting an active and energetic pup.

Instead, every weekday evening in summer, even when it is raining, you can see dozens of office workers in the park, subjecting themselves to the apparent torture that is the British Military Fitness programme.

Warning: you may need to turn the volume down when viewing this wee video...

I do hope that instructor's bark is worse than his bite...

    OMD yes, boot camps are all the rage these days - I'm with you Bertie. Hiking with a doggie pal is FAAAARR superior in my view. Especially one who will sit all pretty like this!!

    That look over the shoulder barked volumes &*>

    Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Bertie you have them too. We had to turn the video off as it gave us the creeps. We have them all over our park and we don't like them as they get in my way and scare the squirrels. Peeps are dumb. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. I've only ever read about them Bertie, never seen one "live" so to speak. Paying someone to yell at me - not my cup of tea.
    Now chasing a terrier around like a mad fool.. that's more like it.

  7. Jeez Bertie, why would anyone want to do that when they could have a lovely chappie like yourself exercising them! Peeps are funny at times. We did not like his voice at all and told our mum so! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  10. Ahahaha, we had no idea that this went on in Duthie Park! I'll have to nip down tonight and see if I can have a look, and maybe even join in! Why Bertie, were you not doing your press ups with them all?
    Pippa :)

    I didn't realise humans could bark so loud, Bertie. I admire your restraint. I would have gone and sniffed all of them...hehehe.
