These fitness seminars will help you, the handler, stay in tip-top shape! Don't forget to stretch before you work out, especially your ankles and knees which receive the most strain from the quick darting motions of agility such as front and rear crosses. The USDAA has some good exercises and stretches for agility handlers.
In the sport of agility, your fitness level is just as important as your dog's fitness!
