CrossFit Fuse in Redmond

A tired dog is a good dog, but you can’t exactly bring your dog to 24-Hour Fitness.

Why in the world would someone want to bring a dog to the gym? Well, in my case, I bring my dogs to work with me and when I’m being a good girl (read: exercising) I work out before heading home. In the warm summer months, this can mean having to leave my dogs in the car with the windows all the way down. I inevitably end up stressing about the dogs getting too hot, checking on them multiple times, and not really enjoying my work out.

CrossFit Fuse in Redmond has an easy-going attitude about dogs, which is just one of the many reasons I *love* this box (CrossFit speak for gym).
Don’t get me wrong. It’s not as though my dogs are running around the place getting their work out on, and I don’t bring them with me every time. But sometimes while I work out I’ll leash up my dog(s) in the corner to a keg or a 70lb sandbag or something similarly “GarRR“.

And, if the WOD (workout-of-the-day, more lingo) has a bunch of running in it, I’ll grab the leash and bring the pups along with me!

The dogs might prefer a lap around Greenlake or a nice long hike, but life is busy; I don’t often have time, and if we’re being honest here, mommy doesn’t really much care for long runs.

If this weren’t a blog about dog-friendly Seattle, I would be going on and on about how amazing Fuse is, and how you should try it out. The owners Troy and Kim are super knowledgeable and attentive, and do a remarkable job at making everyone from newbies to fire-breathers feel welcome and challenged. But don’t take my word for it.

To be fair, I think the CrossFit community in general is pretty welcoming to dogs. My former box Northwest Crossfit regularly let leashed dogs inside as well, until just a few months ago. But Cross Fit Fuse has earned my business heart, and I think my dogs are big fans too!

Paws Up:

  • Let your pup channel positive vibes your way while you get your butt kicked at crossfit
  • Fellow crossfitters are dog-people too… you won’t be the only one
  • A stone’s throw from Marymoor Park, so take the dogs for a romp after
  • Owners are awesome!

Paws Down:

  • Not a super convenient location unless you live and/or work in the area
