…when I first started training at NAKOA, I couldn’t do a single pullup…Now, after putting in the hours and receiving training from the best coaches in the biz, I can bust out 10 pull-ups no problem…I never would have thought that was possible. Most importantly, I no longer understand the meaning of the phrase “I can’t.”

NAKOA Fitness and Physical Therapy has had a significant influence on both my physical and mental health. For a quick example, when I first started training at NAKOA, I couldn’t do a single pullup. Every time I looked at a pullup bar, I immediately said “I can’t.” Now, after putting in the hours and receiving training from the best coaches in the biz, I can bust out 10 pull-ups no problem…I never would have thought that was possible. Most importantly, I no longer understand the meaning of the phrase “I can’t.”

Obviously there has been a physical change in me from participating in NAKOA, but the program has also given me the confidence to take on challenges in the gym, the workplace, and life. I initially didn’t want to participate in NAKOA due to the time and financial commitment, but after seeing the results, it was a no-brainer to continue. The coaches do a fantastic job motivating the members to both challenge themselves and improve month after month.

I have also found a sense of community and friendship with the coaches and fellow members, allowing for accountability which I believe is paramount when committing to any workout program. We’ve all gone on “gym stints” where we go to the gym five days a week for a couple of weeks, then four days, then three days, then eventually a couple of times a week for 30 minutes at a time. With NAKOA, you make a commitment, but you’re not just keeping yourself accountable…you have a team of coaches and members taking the journey with you. That’s what allows people to make that next step to move forward and improve their lives for the better.

I have recommended NAKOA to just about anyone I know that is looking for a great gym experience and lives in the San Diego area. If you are looking to get whipped into shape, improve your health and gain valuable friendships, NAKOA is the place to be!
