Koko FitClub Oro Valley exercise programs were designed by fitness pros Rob Parr, Kathy Kaehler, and Michael Wood, who together boast a portfolio of high-profile clients including Madonna, Hugh Jackman, and numerous professional athletes. The trio's digitally empowered program pushes personalization at all levels, from tailored routines to individualized results and goals. To accommodate trainees, each gym houses hybrid exercise machines built for both cardio and strength training, eliminating the need to either change machines or bench-press friends in between reps. To begin, guests insert Koko keys into machines, which then display personalized routines broken down in a comprehensive manner. Throughout the workout, the system monitors technique, pace, and overall progress, which clients can later review on a private web page.
Better Bodies wears many different hats. Though the upscale gym features classic strength-training equipment and cardio machines, it also offers nutritional counseling, personal training and group fitness classes, such as spinning, yoga, boot camp, and Pilates. Better Bodies' spacious layout and sleek decor provide a soothing atmosphere for fitness and relaxation alike. After an intense workout, you can recharge with a protein-rich smoothie at the café, refresh at the full onsite salon and spa, and then relax in the gender-separate steam rooms.
