How Omar overcame a case of asthma in order to get healthy

After been diagnosed with mild case of asthma at age 40 without having history of smoking, my focus was to stay active and overcome it. My excuse beforehand was time. 

I was full-time during the days, kids activities after work, and my only option was a 24hr gym. I tried a couple except the challenge was to get the most out of each workout. After a friend encouraged me to try Koko for 30 days I did and have been a member since!

The great thing about Koko is that it takes the guess work out of the equation and I get the most of each workout in every session. It fits into my schedule and overall the staff is a great group of people. They treat everyone like a family, and a very positive environment around.

I will definitely recommend Koko to any family or friends.

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!)
