Since joining this team I have made new friends, become more energetic, and have found a whole new community to be a part of.
After winning an awesome package to NAKOA through a friend’s fundraiser, I immediately thought that only professional athletes would survive these workouts, and I was not one of those. What I have come to find 6 months later is I was wrong. Regardless if training for a sport as a career or just to stay fit and healthy, both the clientele, coaches, and physical therapists create a challenging yet inclusive environment that helps push clients further than you expect you can go while providing support the entire way. Since joining this team I have made new friends, become more energetic, and have found a whole new community to be a part of.
With working out there is bound to be some injuries along the way, especially me being me. I have been lucky enough at NAKOA to have the PT department tightly intertwined with the coaches. This has helped to guide me in which exercises are helping and hurting me. It has also made me more conscious of proper ways to do things knowing there are always eyes on me. Just because you may be done with the table doesn’t mean that you are in the clear. The fitness coaches and physical therapists will always continue to make sure you are doing everything the best you can to avoid further injuries.
I have recommended and will continue to recommend NAKOA to friends and colleagues. It puts me in a good mood leaving there even after sweating it all on the turf.
