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!)

How Candy Got Ready For Her Daughter’s Wedding

Strength training is an important factor for your workout routines. Those who focus mainly on cardio miss out on the benefits you receive from strength training and vice versa.

Read about Candy and how she increased her strength  for her daughter’s wedding!


I have always been active but strength training had never been a part of my exercise regimen.

I had considered hiring a personal trainer at 55 years old to alter my routine.

I saw that a friend had liked Koko on Facebook and decided to give it a try. This was a few months before my daughter was to be married and I enjoyed the results Koko gave me and the incentive to try harder through various levels and goals!

I even encouraged my husband to join and he has loved it. I am now closing in on 750,000 Koko points and looked great for the wedding!

Thank you, Koko!

We are so proud of your success, Candy.

The Key to Performing Your Best in Sports

Single Rower In Sunrise

As you age, it becomes increasingly more difficult to execute certain motions, such as touching your toes, lifting objects, or raising your arms above your head. Mobility is a vital factor of your workout that most people leave out of their routines.

Even with Maureen’s history of athleticism, she discovered how Koko was the perfect system for maintaining and improving mobility. It helped her stay in shape for rowing, even after undergoing a few surgeries.

During my teens and early twenties I was not involved in organized athletics or committed to fitness. When I went to grad school many of my friends were engaged in fitness activities so I joined in with them.

Since that point I became more consistently invested in an active lifestyle, especially after starting to row in my early 30’s. I enjoyed the sport so much that for a number of years I was training and competing as a Master’s athlete.

The past ten years have been a little more difficult to maintain that level of commitment, as competing priorities and major health issues became [a concern].

A couple of years ago I realized that it was time to refocus on my health and Koko has been important to me returning to a stronger and healthier me. Yes, there have been some injuries/surgeries/travel that have caused some lapses in my consistency with Koko, but I always return.

The system is very user-friendly and I love the feedback. It is such an efficient program that it makes it easier to fit it into a busy lifestyle. Thank you Koko!
