A lot of the success of this year’s participants, he said, came down to the group dynamic of the teams and the large-group personal training.
“These girls are calling each other, these girls are texting each other, these girls are meeting for extra cardio workouts,” he said.
In addition, the anaerobic interval training that the teams did in their large-group sessions simply burn fat faster, he said.
Now, the challenge will be to continue on with everything the contestants have been taught and consistently apply it.
“This is nothing more than a jumpstart to start their journey,” he said. “Eight weeks is not a destination.”
And Coy said the gym isn’t finished changing the fitness level of Kokomo either. He said the gym hopes to do another contest of some kind in the summer.
“Keep your eyes peeled,” he said.
