I have not been to Koko Fit Club yet (it just opened a few weeks ago on Drake and Shields), but my co-worker and I ran into one of the club’s owners, Wendy Newman, at a networking event, and the idea behind it is so cool that I have to share! The timing is also perfect; if you’ve resolved to lose weight and get healthy this year, this could be the perfect way to stick with the program. I mean HELLO, each workout is a half hour or less! How easy is that?
What makes Koko Fit Club different from every other gym in town is that it customizes a digital training regimen that develops along with you. Here’s how it works:
1. The Koko Fit Club team analyzes your body by measuring your 1) Lean Muscle Mass, 2) Body Fat, and 3) Strength Levels.
2. Based on your body analysis and fitness goals, you receive a customized strength, cardio, and nutrition plan.
3. You train on Koko’s computerized equipment that leads you through every workout with interactive coaching and performance data.
4. Koko tracks your progress and adapts as your fitness improves. Your workouts will increase in intensity as your stamina and strength improve. Your progress will be quantified and each session will be automatically logged to your own personal website.
What I like most about this concept is the efficiency of the workout. You can complete a workout in a half hour or less because you get on a machine and Koko tells you exactly what you need to do. At a regular gym, I feel like I waste a lot of time wandering around trying to figure out which machine I’ll look less hopeless on. Once I finally settle on a machine, it can be difficult to really push myself. As an introvert, I prefer the idea of a machine telling me what to do rather than having to interact with a real-life personal trainer who is in my face the whole time. Besides, personal trainers are expensive and this is a money saving blog.
Which brings us to the savings. Right now you can get a FREE session and 50% OFF your initial startup costs, which covers your keys, headphones, assessments, etc.
Like I mentioned, I have never actually been to Koko FitClub, so I can’t give you a play-by-play on my personal experience. However, HERE is an article I found through the Denver Post about one person’s experience. Keep in mind this an article about the Koko Fitclub in Littleton, NOT Fort Collins. That being said, it may give you an idea of what to expect.
