How fitness can change the way you feel

Meet Alex! A KokoNut who was unhappy with his lackadaisical lifestyle.

After I started my first job out of college, the meager amount of daily exercise I was already getting dropped down to the occasional weekend walk or hike on a weekend (I was traditionally not much of a gym guy).

After a few months, I realized that I was not happy with how I felt at the end of each day; I felt physically uncomfortable and completely out of shape. I knew I wasn’t going to successfully run my own fitness regimen on my own, so I decided to give Koko a shot.

It ended up working perfectly for me; the time commitment is low enough that it is easy to fit in right after work.

I love the fact that I can do a different workout every day without any extra effort or expense (that’s the real killer feature for me at least). After almost 5 years of going to my local Koko Fitclub, I really appreciate how healthy I feel!

(Looking fit is also a plus, of course!)

Rather than trying to count calories or eat specific macronutrients, become more aware of your fiber intake and the amount of added sugar you’re consuming each day. Gaining more knowledge and having a better understanding in these two areas could significantly improve your health and well-being.
