Rocky the Hungarian Vizsla inadvertently became an integral part of the Letchworth based Strength In Motion Fitness team when he started to accompany Clients on training runs. Awarded his own namesake running team, Rocky's Runners in 2015, Rocky's hyperactive energy is infectious and he provides a welcome distraction when a hill approaches! Clients often seek him out for some pre-session canine therapy
