Posted 6:52 AM 1/14/2013 : Oro Valley gym offers 'virtual' training
ORO VALLEY - A personal trainer would seem like the way to go if you don't know your way around the gym but those fees can add up. Koko FitClub in Oro Valley offers a much different kind of personal trainer that's more affordable.
People love this gym because it takes the guesswork out of working out. All you have to do is plug in your USB with your workouts already pre-planned. A virtual trainer tells you how much weight you need to lift, how long you need to run, how many reps you need to do and even tells you if you are doing the workout correctly.
"What they find is the precision with which we customize those programs provides those great results. All we prescribe is three to four sessions per week," said Gary Durrenberger, owner of the Oro Valley club.
There are not any free weights. There are only three different types of machines but they do all you need to get a complete workout.
"I was a little surprised at first cause I had worked with free weights in the past and I worked with machines in the past so I didn't know there was going to be as much of a challenge," said member Josh Bishop.
Koko has locations nationwide. Gary plans to open another Tucson gym in the future. Also in the works for Koko FitClub is a calculated meal plan to take the guess work out of dieting as well.
