Holiday Greetings, Koko Nation!
With the new year just around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to reflect back on the wonderful success stories you shared with us in 2012 and to tell all of you once again how much I appreciate that you have made Koko a part of your lives. I’m constantly amazed to see this huge, supportive community Koko Nation has become. (More than 15,000 of us in 110 clubs around the country- wow!) Even more, I am humbled and inspired beyond measure when I hear from you that Koko is making a healthy, positive impact in your lives and the lives of your families.
We can’t get enough of your success stories, and love nothing more than to cheer you on. Please keep sharing them with us! You can post them here on the Koko FitClub Blog, on facebook or right to the Koko FitClub website.
Below, I’ve shared one of the latest we’ve received. I hope you find it just as inspiring as I do during this time of year when we make new year’s resolutions and ramp up our fitness goals. Shoot for the moon, Koko Nation, because Koko is going to make it even simpler for you to be fit and healthy in 2013. It’s going to be a great year!
From our family to yours, here’s to a happy and healthy New Year!

“When friends I haven’t seen for awhile tell me I look terrific, I have one word for them – Koko! There’s no other place like it. Koko truly is revolutionary. It’s hard to believe it but less than a year ago I was in such bad shape I thought nothing could help. My lower back was riddled with pain. I went to acupuncture and practically lived at the chiropractor. When my son dragged me into Koko for a free demonstration I could barely bend over. I was 53 but felt 80. But, my 17 year old wanted to join and I didn’t want to be a spoil-sport. Besides, I was a natural for the Koko Back Strengthening Program. That all seems so long ago and far away. Since then I’ve lost another 10 pounds, put on some real muscle and feel just terrific. The best thing for me is that Koko gets results – and it actually fits into my busy schedule. If someone had told me all this, frankly, I wouldn’t have believed them. But I am living proof that Koko works. It’s also been great to have something positive to do with my teenager. Statistics show that kids with disabilities tend to be obese. I was intrigued as to whether my son would get results and stick with it. Well, he just loves going to Koko. The fitness trainers are so friendly; he just can’t wait to get there. Now he comes home and tells me that he raises his arms at school and shows his friends his “guns.” I am so proud of what he’s accomplished. Bottom line: Koko rocks!” – Leesa K. Donner
