Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Getting Started!

It’s the 5th week into isolation. During week 1 you promised yourself you will exercise at home during this, but some of you haven’t started yet. I get it. Life is different. After your morning coffee, you look around and see ANOTHER long day stretched out before you. Not a day you’d choose, and it makes you feel a little out of control. It’s hard to set goals in this setting, but for your own sanity, you have to. 

Here’s your one goal: each day I will do one thing for my mind, my body, and my spirit.


SPIRIT – I WILL get started!

BODY – I WILL do this 7 minute workout TODAY and everyday until I’m in a routine and ready for more.

(I can do anything for 7 minutes)

MIND – each day I WILL do ONE of these:

Open book you already have, or choose one here:

COOK! Share a recipe you and your family have enjoyed recently!

SHARE! We need each other right now. Share your books, art work, hobbies, recipes, ways you are exercising, your wonderful pet pics, etc. HERE. This is our spot to stay connected until our clubs open. At Koko we are sooo much more than just a gym. We are a family. We love each other. We are interested in each other beyond just exercise. All of us coaches miss “our people .” We miss the chit chat at the desk when you come in. We are concerned you are “okay” during this difficult time. We would love to see what you are doing. Everyday we check our pages to see “who’s here”. Sharing will do wonders for your spirit, and for ours!

So, are you ready? START TODAY! We miss you, dear Kokonuts!
