DogFit Certified Trainer: Juliet Howes

Juliet Howes is a Level 3 certified Personal Trainer, running leader, Nutritional Therapy practitioner and owner of Hazel the Viszla!

Juliet's love of running began more than 10 years ago, after the birth of her son. Realising that training outside gave her so much more than physical fitness, she ditched her gym membership and committed to exercising in the great outdoors from then on.

A few years later, following the birth of her second child, Juliet decided to change career so she could be a full time mum to her children. A move into the field of health & fitness was the obvious choice and swapping her city office for parks and green spaces, was not a difficult decision.

She qualified as a Personal Trainer in 2009 and followed that with a course in running leadership with Run England. The next 5 years saw her set up and grow her PT business training clients one to one and running outdoor boot camps and fitness classes in and around Twickenham & Richmond. In 2014, Juliet studied Nutrition with the NTA and qualified as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, adding that vital and often overlooked subject to her health and wellness expertise.

Over the years, Juliet's philosophy on fitness has evolved to become about so much more than just pumping out reps and clocking up miles. ‘It is as much a state of mind as it is body’, she says. 'I think we are on the cusp of some exciting new thinking about how to maximise our health and wellness'. And that’s where DogFit comes in! There is clinical evidence, that spending time in nature and with animals is a proven stress release. By combining the two it is no wonder you feel such an amazing 'runner's high' after a session. Plus the affection and close bond you feel with your canine running partner cannot be under estimated.

Juliet will be bringing her own brand of fitness and fun to Canicross for beginners through to more experienced runners.
