As a result of the customized services we deliver, we develop lasting relationships with our members. Many times, we hear from our members about how our staff at Koko FitClub San Antonio - Alamo Heights have helped them. For those of you we hear from, we thank you for passing along your kind words. Here are some of our favorites:
“I was new to fitness when I joined Koko. I have been a Koko member for over a year now, and it is the first time I have ever been able to stick with a fitness program. The combination of helpful staff and a virtual personal trainer at Koko made it easy for me to build a habit that stuck this time. My improved strength, balance, and stamina made a world of difference this past year, helping me better enjoy several very active vacations.” _ Colleen, San Antonio, TX
“I joined Koko Fit three years ago when I realized I needed a place to work out and get back in shape, and those “other big box” gyms were not the place for me anymore. As I often said, they had become a “very expensive shower!”
From the moment I walked in the door and was greeted with enthusiasm by Bill, I knew I was “home.” Bill got me started on the treadmill and then put me through the unique strength workout, which is only at Koko Fit. Suffice it to say; I was hooked!
Over the last three years, Koko has been a part of my weekly routines, and I find myself getting in a quick workout whenever I have a gap in my schedule. And while it sounds silly, those little plastic medallions one gets for doing 12 strength and 12 cardio workouts in a month have become the best motivator. After all, the last thing I want to do is miss a month and have to go back to the beginning. In fact, one month, I was leaving on vacation on the 13th and not returning until the following month began, so I was at Koko every day to make sure I made my goal.
Overall, Koko has become like “Cheers” for me because whenever you walk in, people look up and say hi. Koko has become a community of people whom I look forward to seeing and catching up with, and most importantly, who don’t laugh at me too much when I put in my earphones, turn on my music, and rock out while I work out!” - Robin, San Antonio, TX
“I came to Koko by a friend’s invitation in July 2016. I liked the idea that I could do weight training that was already figured out for me. I had osteoporosis at the time, and my doctor recommended the weights, so I was motivated to get started. The staff, and other members, were very friendly, and I wanted to keep coming back. I also kept coming to get the medallions! I have missed those few months due to longer vacations, but I’ve always gotten back to it. The best news came last month when my endocrinologist told me I don’t have osteoporosis right now and can skip the medicine for at least 2 to 5 years. She said to keep up the strength training and walking...I will!” -Alice Ann, San Antonio, TX
“I have really enjoyed and benefitted from my Koko membership. I have been a steady runner for many years but lacked the strength training my body needed as I grew older. The Koko workouts are paced very well so that they push me to gain strength and flexibility, but not in a way that causes me to injure myself like other workout programs tend to do. I love the friendly atmosphere at the Club. Coach Bill has been a tremendous help with his enthusiasm, encouragement, and just the right amount of motivation to do better than I would on my own behalf. Leslie and Debbie are also great encouragers and always have a smile to keep me pushing through my workout. The ability to work out at any hour of the day or night is hugely helpful, and I have never been turned away because there were no machines available. I have recommended Koko to many of my friends and will continue to do so.” _ Craig, San Antonio, TX
“I have never been more in shape, and I feel really great as well. Koko has the magic combination of proper resistance training tailored specifically to each individual, along with the exercise, weight, and the number of reps. If you want to get the absolute best workout in 30 minutes... Koko is your answer. It's all figured out for you, and all you need to do is show up. My husband is now a Koko member and has lost 50lbs. He is really loving it as well.
Thanks so much for bringing Koko to San Antonio!” _Lori & Bob, San Antonio, TX
“I’ve been a member at Koko for almost three years and have found the routines and programs have continued to engage me, making it easy to include Koko as a part of my weekly schedule. Although I’m not in my 20’s anymore, I’d like to be the best I can be for my age, and work towards the goals I set at Koko. I feel great and, in no small part, credit that to the friendly staff and environment at Koko!” _ Nancy, San Antonio, TX
“My husband and I have been active our entire lives – he’s a swimmer and avid cyclist and I’m a runner. We both have sedentary, somewhat stressful jobs - Craig is an attorney and practices School Law. I’m an Associate Superintendent, and we very much look forward to evenings, weekends, and being active. As many of you know, we must work to “fit-in” our activities while also balancing family and work.
Over the years, we’ve been a member of several gyms in the San Antonio area and had varying results. Not having any type of weight training background, we typically only used the weights and machines we were most familiar with – repeatedly. Then, one cold and rainy December morning, we drove to our gym to find it boarded up and closed for business. We were back to searching for a new gym again. We even investigated hiring a personal trainer, but for both of us – it would have been costly.
That’s when we found Koko. Koko is so much more than a gym – it’s really a personal trainer (via your key fob) that walks you through prescribed workouts designed to achieve your goal – that is very affordable.
We’ve learned at Koko, the best foundation for an active lifestyle is weight-bearing, strengthening exercises – with a core focus, paired with cardio – at least three times per week. Since joining Koko just four years ago – our lives have become even more active! We’ve hiked the Grand Canyon and completed our first Triathlon this past fall. We love our gym! We love Koko! If you are looking for a new, ramped-up, and personalized gym experience – give Koko a try!” Toni, San Antonio, TX
“At our Alamo Heights Koko FitClub, I often feel like Norm entering CHEERS. Members arrive, and the first words we hear are: “NORM!”
Well, only if that’s your name. It’s a delight to hear Bill and Debbie greet every member by name. It’s that kind of personal touch that keeps us coming back day after day.
After almost two years at the club, I’ve more than doubled strength and achieved a Q score near the top of my age cohort. Their encouragement and personal attention are key drivers that keep members like me motivated.
I’m an enthusiastic cheerleader for Koko FitClub and look forward to keeping my endorphins popping every week.” _ Bill, San Antonio, TX
“Staying in shape or making improvements in my health is a great motivator for me. I’ve witnessed parents and older friends that have either stopped any kind of exercise or never began a routine, and their health and physical function has dramatically decreased as they have aged. I have also stopped and started routines before, and I know if I were to stop now, starting again would be difficult.
I have several favorite things about Koko; the business model and the way to exercise they have invented is definitely unique. You decide what you want to improve, select a workout program, and you can come in whenever time permits to accomplish your goals. Instructions are provided if needed, and there has never been any up-sell pressure to engage in additional activities. I also enjoy the camaraderie with the other members, as that always helps to complete that day’s program.” _ Tim, San Antonio, TX
