A good workout regimen provides the courage needed to march back into the office, take the clown nose off, and demand a smaller, funnier car. Fill oversize shoes with self-confidence with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a smart-training package at Koko FitClub in Dublin (a $280 total value). The package includes the following:

- Access to an online personal fitness page (a $51 value)
Eschewing traditional personal-fitness methods, the fitness consultants at Koko FitClub help resculpt bodies with automated 30-minute exercise programs tailored to each individual. An initial fitness evaluation helps trainers customize workouts to suit goals of muscle construction or weight demolition, or help alleviate diabetes, arthritis, or other medical conditions. Once a personal regimen has been chosen, members receive a Koko key that stores their personal information, allowing them to plug into any Koko machine at any time to continue their workout with personal on-screen prompts. Automated coaches built into each machine guide bodies through circuit weight training and interval cardio training on treadmills and elliptical machines, as well as offer anecdotes on the mathematical probability of an approaching singularity. Members don’t have to play musical workout stations, because every muscle-strengthening, body-tuning exercise can be performed in one location and on the tip of one toe.
At Koko, a 24-hour access key ensures that the gym’s doors are always open, inviting workouts at all times of the day, every day of the week. Keep on top of the situation by tracking progress on a private webpage or by tattooing each new personal best on your belly.
Koko FitClub Smartraining system, which debuted in Entrepreneur magazine's 33rd annual Franchise 500 rankings, gives patrons personalized control over their own fitness with 30-minute custom workouts at automated stations. Each person's tailored regimen begins with a body-composition test, which helps trainers to build a program based on weight loss, toning, or whale-wrestling goals. Staff members then load workout plans onto the client's Koko key, which plugs into Smartraining machines. The workout equipment greets guests by name and instructions steer limbs through a medley of strength and cardio maneuvers, all of which take place at a single station. Because the system stores each visitor's progress, workouts adapt daily to keep muscle groups from starting a fight club out of boredom. A personal website tracks fitness data for at-home viewing.
