Trevor “The Trev” Haught
Labrador Retriever

What Trev lacks in exercise and fitness knowledge and experience, he makes up for with sheer heart. Sometimes he has a little trouble holding his licker, but it’s always nice to get a big wet kiss when you’re on the floor trying to catch your breath. Trev’s official position in the gym is “Walmart Greeter” – he’ll give you a big, warm, tail-wagging welcome!  Just don’t ask him, “Dude, do you even lift?” He doesn’t ;)

For a limited time, when you sign up for our Group Training, Trev will throw in a special gift. Just for you – a big sloppy wet kiss!
