The fitness industry offers a million tools to help you get fit, but after you spend your money, you are left to your own devices. One thing we realized early on in our research, was that people can have the best tools in the world, but without a goal and a good plan, they don’t get results. So in designing the Koko Smartraining System, we knew that we couldn’t just provide a fitness tool. Providing a long term, goal-oriented plan was key. You can think of the Koko Smartraining System
like a “fitness GPS.” A tool, yes, but one that actually guides
you through your custom plan to your fitness goal. Simply, follow the step by step directions to reach your desired destination. Is your goal Sports Performance
or Weight Loss
? From among Koko’s five Smartraining Plans and six HealthTracks, you choose your destination and receive a year-long, custom plan to get you there.
Now there are infinite ways of getting from “A” to “B” and not all of them desirable. The Koko Smartraining System, like your GPS, must map out the best route to be effective. And it certainly must take your starting point into account. A GPS not only gets you from point “A” to point “B”, it also takes you on the most direct route and keeps you out of traffic jams. And so, like a GPS, the Koko Smartraining System makes the journey to your fitness goals as direct and efficient as possible. Thanks to technology, the fitness science that most people don’t have time to keep up with is automatically built into your Smartraining plan to make it efficient and effective.
How exactly does the Koko Smartraining System map out your best route to fitness? Let me explain with a quick lesson in exercise physiology: Your body is incredibly adaptable. If that adaptability isn’t accounted for by making changes in your fitness regimen on a regular basis- through something called periodization- that exercise regimen will become less and less effective. Your body no longer has to work to meet the challenge, so you see a plateau or slowing down of results. Just like getting stuck in a traffic jam when there is someplace you want to be, it’s incredibly frustrating. Periodization prevents the slow-down by keeping your body guessing. It is the manipulation of variables within your exercise plan to keep your body from adapting, and Koko does it automatically. By changing the combination of exercises, varying the intensity of your workouts day to day and adjusting workout volume (sets x reps x weight,) Koko not only improves your results, but the speed at which you see them.
So, with the Koko Smartraining System, all you need to do is come in, plug in and follow along, just like you would with a GPS. If your plan is followed as it is designed, 2 or 3 days a week, you will reach your fitness destination. What a novel concept in the fitness industry!
