At OKOactive, we believe the point of fitness training is to get ‘Fit For Life’, not just for the beach or an annual event. For that reason, we don’t weigh or measure those who put their trust in us. We’d never be so rude or intrusive.
Also, we humans, are born athletes so fitness is our natural state and once we attain the right balance of movement, nutrition and rest, the aesthetic rewards are never far behind.

Along with our internationally published articles, books and downloadable guides, membership to OKOactive gives you unlimited access to our PYRAFIT - Smart Training Programs which you can download and use anywhere; anytime you need a smart sweat, PLUS you can enjoy most of our products at no further cost!
Emma Oko’s Story
I’m a UK based, born & bred, Personal Trainer. I’ve been called many things, from The Fixer, The Hurricane, The Body Detective (I liked that one) and even; Ma’am but I think functional fitness coach describes what I do, most accurately.
My interest in fitness began back in 2009 when, in my mid 30’s, I joined the Territorial Army, before that I’d never been out of breath.
My initial motivation for getting fit was to pass army selection and keep up with the troop but when I noticed how good exercise made me feel. I wanted to explore the science of it, in particular; human movement, in greater depth so pursued my studies all the way to Sheffield Hallam University to read Bio Mechanics.
Working the long shifts in gyms highlighted some pretty dysfunctional training techniques frequently applied by seasoned gym users. I noticed many people were simply treading water rather than making the progress they wanted but what really struck me was the realization that the one goal we ALL have, is to feel better.
I started OKOactive in 2010 and; head-hunted by Virgin Active, relocated to Sheffield in 2013 to teach fitness classes and establish what I hope will become a world-class fitness service for people who want to feel physically amazing!
Nowadays, I focus on developing functional movement patterns that not only improve or fix training methods but improve and fix bodies too!
