Koa Fit Client of the Month – April 2017

Mary Beth Readey

Mary Beth just keeps impressing us.  She has lost over 30lbs, has dedicated herself to additional training sessions, and continues to get stronger each week.  She has shifted from someone who dreaded her workouts, to making them a part of her routine twice a week and even looking forward to them.  She brings a mixture of straight talking reality and hilarity to each session.  She is working consistently through the Healthy Habits program and has adopted positive change as a result.  We are really proud of her steady dedication.

What her trainers are saying:

“Mary Beth brings a realistic approach to her health and fitness.  She moves steadily forward, owning her choices and making no excuses.  Her consistency is paying off in both strength and physique.  And her laughter fills the room, which makes it fun for the whole gym!” – Missy Hughes

“I’ve seen so much improvement in her body and mind.  She is an inspiration to those who can achieve weightloss and a functional active body as a senior.  She is a machine when she’s focused.”  – Siri Schubert-Nicolella

Koa Fit Client of the Month – March 2017

Jo Mattoon

SUP 2016

Jo Mattoon has inspired the whole crew at Koa Fit with her enthusiasm and the energy she puts into her workouts, her life, her health, and her overall effort to be her best self.  In the past year, Jo has dropped unwanted weight, toned and shaped her body, tried (and got addicted to) stand-up paddleboarding, built a business, and on top of all that, she landed her dream job.  Jo continually works to progress and improve all aspects of her life.  She puts just as much effort into her relationships and her lifestyle as she does into her self-improvement.  She does all of this with a great smile and a great outlook on life and you can tell she is just having the best time.

What her trainer says:

“Jo always comes in ready to work and always is asking for more.  She never takes a break on making this her best life.  She soaks up every aspect of life – husband, work, health, travel – with a zest that is contagious and just awesome to be around.” 


Smart Eating Recap

Did you miss our Smart Eating Seminar?  Check out the highlights below.

  • Let your nutrition and exercise support your life rather than creating your life around a diet plan.
  • Start with a clear mindset.  Decide what small thing you would like to accomplish and see it clearly.
  • Set goals that are specific and measurable, challenging but realistic, have short-term and long-term components, frame them around behaviors not outcomes, and share your goal with your network of support.
  • Each component of food is important.  Aim for a balance of each macronutrient at every meal.  Protein cannot be stored in your body, but makes up every structure in your body.  Fat delivers your nutrients throughout your body, balances hormones and maintains a healthy heart.  Carbohydrates give you quick energy and include all vegetables, not just bread, pasta, and rice.
  • Use your hand for portion planning:  1 palm  = protein serving, 1 fist = vegetable serving, 1 cupped palm = starch serving, 1 thumb = fat serving
  • Enjoy mostly whole foods to get the most nutrients, energy, and balance from your food.
  • Eat slowly to release the full flavor of your food and to give your “I’m full” hormone a chance to work.

Missy and Siri offer personalized coaching to help you practice these essentials and more with the Healthy Habits online program.  This year-long journey focuses on changing your mindset and getting to the root of what’s holding you back from achieving your optimal body.  You will receive instruction, accountability, camaraderie, and motivation.


Smart Eating – A Be Balanced Community Event

good-diet-healthy-foodA Be Balanced Community Event

With Missy Hughes and Siri Schubert

With the New Year often comes intense energy toward setting and reaching goals of absolute change.  We usually start out well, only to dwindle in motivation a few weeks later.  Let’s be real this year, absolute change isn’t what we really intend or need!  Do something different this year and learn to maximize your nutrition and use food to increase your energy and super charge your athleticism.  Don’t make food the enemy, stop blaming yourself for making poor choices, and STOP dieting.    Learn how to set yourself up for success so you can eat and feel good about what your eating while getting healthier.

  • Learn the building blocks of food that support a healthy metabolism
  • Learn the “what” and “when” of eating
  • Reshape your mindset to be the fit, energetic person that you imagine
  • Learn how to eat high energy, high quality food so you don’t feel deprived or hungry

Koa Fit Client of the Month – January

Whitney Prestwood

WhitneyWhitney started working with Ryan Tara to help relieve her chronic back pain.  After trying a handful of things, she wanted to take a little more control of her health and learn how to take care of her body.  Whitney made herself a priority and currently has her pain down to almost nothing.  On top of getting in control of her pain, she also lost weight, corrected her posture, and feels like an athlete again.  Congrats Whitney for taking charge of your body and getting yourself out of chronic pain!

What her trainer says:

“I am always very excited to work with Whitney. Over the past year she has been truly dedicated to improving her personal health. She has made some very inspiring changes to her physical fitness; reducing chronic back back pain, losing weight, and rediscovering her athletic ability and joy of movement. Whitney has really demonstrated to me the power we all have over our personal wellbeing, and I am happy and honored to help her along the way.”

Koa Fit Client of the Month – December

Theo Dierks

bad a$$ Theo

Theo Dierks started working out at Koa Fit in 2013.  She embodied the principle of taking one step at a time (even if sometimes reluctantly!).  Over the past several years, she has learned tons about her body and how to look and feel great.  She increased her flexibility to eliminate pain.  She found that food reflects emotion, drives mood and affects strength.  Above all, she discovered just how much she loves to be strong!  Her transformation this year provided inspiration to many as she gained strength and fine-tuned her physique. We are all so proud of her hard work!

What her trainer says:

“Theo is an amazing caretaker to everyone in her life.  She learned this year to give that love and attention to herself as well, and it looks amazing on her!  Her energy, creativity, and spunk are boundless, which make her sessions a highlight of my week every week!” 

-Missy Hughes
