Josie and Karin in Northern Virginia are into week two of their 21 day Koko Booster program and they have been fantastic in keeping up with the Booster workout schedule. They also have been successfully incorporating their Booster meal plans into their busy lives.
Just to recap, two of our Northern Virginia clubs, Koko FitClub Herndon and Koko FitClub Ashburn each challenged a member to do a 21-Day Koko Booster Program, and to share their experiences and results with all of us. The 21-Day Koko Boosters are new with the launch of Koko Fuel and include customized, fully integrated strength, cardio and nutrition plans.
Heading into week two, here’s where they stand:
Josie, our 44-year-old mobile DJ from Koko FitClub Ashburn, has lost four pounds, her “Q” score is up to 18 and she’s lowered her eBMI to 46.6. (Remember, the eBMI number aligns with the traditional BMI scale but, unlike BMI, takes into account the amount of lean muscle in your body, a key medical indicator of your health.) Way to go, Josie!
“The strength work outs have been tough, but I am loving the results and the way that I feel,” she said. “The Fuel plan has given me a better understanding of how to plan meals that incorporate more fruits, vegetables, lean meats and healthy grains.”
Josie currently has a lean muscle level of 168.5 pounds. The more lean muscle you have, the more calories your body burns during exercise AND at rest. Lean muscle determines your metabolism and energy levels and affects your strength, agility and even your ability to fight disease. As she continues on her fitness path, Josie may see her lean muscle level drop along with her total weight, but that’s to be expected. It’s impossible to lose only body fat when your goal is to lose a significant amount of weight. What her Koko Smartraining strength program will do is minimize muscle loss. We will see her lean muscle level make up an increasing percentage of her total body weight, and that will be reflected as a lower eBMI number!
Karin, our 53-year-old school bus driver from Koko FitClub Herndon has kept her weight in check and slightly reduced her eBMI to 25.6. Her goal is to get stronger and increase her lean muscle level, which is currently 102 pounds. Love your consistency, Karin!
“I have tried the Koko Fuel recipes and especially love the turkey chili and all of the quinoa options,” she said. “My family and I have been really focusing on making more healthy choices and are experimenting with different Greek yogurts to find one we like.”
Check in weekly to watch Josie’s and Karin’s progress as they incorporate workouts and meal planning into their daily routines and cheer them on as they start seeing results!
Keep up the great work ladies. Koko Nation is rooting you on!
