Koko FitClub opens Deep Deuce location

EDMOND — Hoping to appeal to a growing young neighborhood, Koko FitClub, a neighborhood fitness club that combines individualized personal training with technology, has opened a new location in the Deep Deuce District.

Koko FitClub, which is at 1 N.E. Second St., Ste. 104, in Oklahoma City, uses modern technology to track users’ progress and help maintain fitness goals.

“We serve people who have limited free time but also want to stay in shape,” said Chris Lucas, who owns all three Koko FitClubs in the metro area, including one in Edmond and another in northwest Oklahoma City. “By using our technology, members get a personalized workout program that fits their schedules and provides all the benefits of working out with a personal trainer.”

The concept of Koko FitClub is built around getting the members in and out of the neighborhood fitness club within 30-45 minutes. This is accomplished through simple, efficient workouts aided by the latest technology for health and fitness.

Among the perks of a Koko membership, each member receivers a personalized website and a flash drive that can be used to measure progress and keep the website updated. Koko members also have access to a Smarttrainer — a digital neighborhood fitness club that walks users through a set of exercises, measuring technique and efficiency.

“Moving from machine to machine, waiting for the equipment you need tracks time on to any trip to our neighborhood fitness club,” Lucas said. “The Smarttrainer allows our members to do all the strength exercises they need in one spot before moving on to cardio on a treadmill or an elliptical machine. This really is a more efficient way to work out, and that’s made possible by our technology.”

Lucas also prides himself on accessibility. Koko Fitness Club’s hours are from 4 a.m. to midnight, allowing early risers and night owls access to the neighborhood fitness club.

The newest location of the innovative neighborhood fitness club is offering a special of 30 days for $30 through the end of the summer. Additional information regarding memberships can be found by calling 405-605-3020 or at www.kokofitclub.com.

  • Cassandra and Me

    My beautiful and talented wife, also affectionately known as the BTW, says I’m sometimes too negative. I try not to be, but perhaps I am. One should never argue with someone with superior knowledge. I can’t help it though, because I see so many things wrong with the big picture that I feel it’s my job to at least warn people.
    If you ever read a little Greek mythology in school, you might be familiar with the story of Cassandra. In Greek mythology, Cassandra was the beautiful daughter of King Priam of Troy. A common version of her story is that Apollo granted her the power to see the future in exchange for her love. She agreed but then later backed out of the deal.
