What kind of exercises do you do at Koko FitClub of Grand Rapids?
We're unlike any other facility in the Grand Rapids area, but our exercise & nutrition methodology has been proven effective over decades of exercise science.
Whole body strength training & interval-based cardio are unquestionably effective and are often regarded as the most efficient way to exercise as well. Workloads and rest times are precisely managed. Every movement is choreographed to squeeze out wasted time, to keep your heart rate elevated, and to ensure that each exercise or phase compliments what came before and what comes next.
Of course, all this requires a level of expert planning and minute-to-minute coaching that is out-of-reach for most people on their own. That's why we invented the Koko Smartraining System to do it all for you!
Does Koko really work?
Yes. Our digital technology and exercise algorithms are built around the same technologies used by olympic athletes and celebrity personal trainers to get them in amazing shape with the least amount of time.
Will I need to do other exercises besides my Koko workout?
You can, but you won’t need to. Every Koko Smartraining session is a full-body workout. Done consistently, Koko can easily be your only workout and you'll see great results.
Of course, we certainly won’t talk you out of going for a swim, run or hike, and just taking a walk on a sunny day is always a good idea. We bet you'll even enjoy those activities more because of your success with Koko!
How much time does a workout take?
Every Koko strength workout is just 30 minutes or less, and cardio is a fast-paced, high-intensity 15 minutes. Koko manages all the key elements of every workout; intensity, workload, and pace. And we squeeze out all wasted time so you get the maximum results in the shortest time possible.
The result is one 30-minute Koko Smartraining strength workout delivers the same benefits of a typical 90-minute gym workout for most people! And 15-minutes of Koko Cardio is TWICE as effective as a typical treadmill or elliptical workout.
Are there any staff at Koko of Grand Rapids, or is it only digital?

How can you be so much more affordable than other personal trainers in GR?
Cheap gym memberships and low-cost health clubs sound tempting, but once you've signed up, then what? You have to pay extra to get results: personal trainer fees, bootcamps, books, magazines — not to mention the time & worry you're not doing the right thing. And then you have to pay even more for a diet plan or nutritional advice.
At Koko, you'll get a day-by-day exercise & nutrition plan created by experts and tailored precisely to your goals, with step-by-step guidance on every exercise and rep, including proper form and proper pace. Unlimited personal training sessions, all for one monthly price -- with no costly personal training add-ons. You can also track your results on your own personal website. No boredom, no repetition, no confusion, no wasted effort... just exactly what you need for the results you want.
I'm a runner/biker/swimmer/triathlete in GR. Will this work for me?
Absolutely. Our programs dynamically manipulate exercise pace, progression & periodization to give you the added strength & endurance to set personal records in local Grand Rapids races and beyond -- no plateaus, just PRs!
I just want to lose weight. Can you help me?
Absolutely. Weight loss in Grand Rapids is just like weight loss anywhere -- a combination of healthy eating & exercise. But with us, you get specific, customized, daily nutritional guidance along with an exercise plan tailored to your body and your specific weight-loss goals. In addition, adding strength training to the mix can help turbo-charge your metabolism so you burn calories at a higher rate throughout the day -- helping you burn fat and lose weight even faster.
How challenging is a typical workout?
Each Koko session is completely customized to be at the right level of intensity for you each day for maximum results. Koko gives you the perfect blend of customized direction and coaching. Koko pushes you when you need it, and provides you with appropriate time to rest, recover and recharge.
Ultimately though, you are in control. You can easily change intensity anytime during any workout. And if you need to modify or skip certain exercises because of a previous injury, no problem. Koko simply adapts to your instructions, automatically, while you continue your workout.
