Being a KokoNut

Photo-A-Day #2855

For the past few months I have been going to Koko Fit Club. I am loving it! I had bought a Groupon for a 1 month trial and I admit, I sat on it for a long time. I was a few days away from it running out when I went in to redeem it. When I went in I immediately knew that this was the place for me.

In the past few months I have seen my strength increase, my fitness level increased my cardio fitness. I’ve achieved the first level for a new lanyard and am nearing the next level. I’ve participated in some challenges and in one I did not do well but I crushed the second one that I did. I love the challenges and I love each days workouts also. I like how the machine tells me which exercise to complete and how much weight to use for each set. I love how the cardio programs have a trainer in your ear telling me when to increase the incline and the speed. I also learn some great fun facts as I do each session.

I feel challenged and engaged in every workout. This is something that I know I will keep up with for a long time to come. Check back with my photo next year to see how I’m doing.

I’ve been a bump on a log for far too long. So, today I took out my journey gym and set it up in the garage so that I could start working out again. I had my portable DVD player with the workout on it and at the 15 minute mark the battery died, so instead of a 20 minute workout I had a 15 minute one. Tomorrow I’ll have the DVD player plugged in so that doesn’t happen again.

After that abbreviated workout I went for a walk. I laced up my New Balance Minimus Trail runner sneakers. I also downloaded the Pedometer Ultimate App for my iPhone to track my walk. I walked all around Capron Park. It felt good to get on out of there and walk. The weather was brisk but sunny and nice. I’m looking forward to the Spring and Summer season and spending more time outside. Continue reading It Begins Today
