Better Health Could Be Closer Than You Think

Do you work out to live, not live to work out? Do you feel like a fish out of water when going to the gym? Are you receiving the coaching and accountability that you need to reach your goals? If you’re not, you might be going to the wrong type of gym.

“’Koko’ means ‘one to one’ or ‘individual’ in Japanese,” said Tim Calise, Co-Founder of Koko FitClub Cape Cod. “That reflects our core values, where we want to create a personal plan for each of our members. Gym and health club are catch-all words. We want to give our members the confidence and step-by-step guidance they need going forward, based on where they want to go.”

Calise never liked gyms. He admits even sitting in a parking lot once, deciding whether or not to go in. “The gym just wasn’t for me,” he said. “When you come in (to Koko FitClub), we absolutely understand that sometimes the hardest step is the one coming in that door.”

Koko FitClub gives you the opportunity to find your better self. They have a team of certified coaches and everything you’ll need across strength, nutrition, and accountability. “The fitness industry has changed dramatically over the last 10 years,” Calise said. “We are on a mission to change lives and have developed a high-value training system for those who just want a different type of experience.”

Koko FitClub calls their methodology “Koko Smarttraining,” as they have melded their patented technology with the support of dedicated coaches and fellow members. This means that whether you want digital coaching 24/7 or a more immersive personal coaching experience – there is a Koko Smartraining plan for you. “As someone who feels good about ‘shopping local,’ not only are we a family business here on the Cape, but all of the technology we utilize originated here as well almost 15 years ago,” Calise said.

While their industry-leading technology certainly makes things easier, it doesn’t replace that personal face-to-face encouragement we, as people, sometimes need. The Koko FitClub Cape Cod team gives you that accountability and guidance you need to be successful. “The medical community is unanimous on this – if you have 30 minutes to spend on exercise, a circuit-based strength program is the best use of your time,” said Calise. “For anyone who wants a little more of an upbeat experience, we do small-group and large-group training, as well. We evolve to update to the times, and what’s coming in the future.”

Koko FitClub also addresses nutrition – something you’d be hard-pressed to find integrated into a core functional training program. “You can’t out-workout a bad diet,” Calise said. “We want to make sure that what you’re putting in your body has the right building blocks that are essential to get the most of the exercise you’re putting forward.”

Their team keeps an eye on changing eating habits, protein intake, cutting sugar, proper hydration, etc. “For most, a clear, easy-to-follow comprehensive nutrition plan is essential to (re)form positive habits – which is why we start new members with a program of movement and nutrition to transform their bodies into the new and improved versions they know are waiting just below the surface,” he added. “We can prepare your shopping lists, give you eating-out guides, recipe guides – we want to empower you with the right information.”

Today, Koko FitClub Cape Cod caters to members from Sandwich to Provincetown (and even some who come from off-Cape to train at Koko) and has changed the lives of thousands of Cape Codders in its eight-year history. One couple’s original idea has grown into a national movement that’s transforming how people stay healthy, fit and happy for life – all with a touch of Cape Cod mixed in.

So, if you’re sick and tire of being sick and tired, had enough of being invisible at your current gym, and putting in the time and effort without seeing the results you desire, Koko FitClub is probably the partner (and the place) you have been missing.
