KOLIfit is the abbreviation for “Know it, Live it," and is an adventure fitness club promoting healthy lifestyle through outdoor activity.  

KOLIfit provides fitness services to prepare individuals for outdoor activities.  KOLIfit believes that a healthy lifestyle falls in the wake of outdoor adventure. Most components of a healthy lifestyle benefit from exploration in the outdoors. Outdoor adventure provides an exhilaration, a divine connection, a euphoric high, a sense of accomplishment, a boost in confidence, and is a test of mental and physical stamina. As we experience these we forget about health as a program and start living an experience that makes us healthy.

The founders of KOLIfit have worked for many years helping individuals improve their health in the gym, but have always maintained that the foundation of fitness lies in applying what you do indoors to enjoying outdoor activities.  So each month KOLIfit organizes a variety of outdoor workouts ranging from hiking, SUP, biking, kayaking, snowshoeing, and much more to provide opportunities to be more physically active.  Workouts are free to the public and anyone can attend.  To assist individuals in preparing  for an the outdoor workouts you can become  a member of KOLIfit and have access to, group fitness services, private training services, and a variety of  fitness programs.  

We  are not guides. A KOLIfit workouts are a community of people gathering together to enjoy an outdoor adventure. Each person is responsible for their own safety and must assume their own risk. KOLIfit will do its best to give accurate descriptions of the activities and will offer support to help member to be prepared and have a safe experience on their adventure.

KOLIfit's founders have over 40 years of experience in the outdoors and over 30 years of health improvement services. We have observed and experienced  that every human is born with an instinctive trait  to explore.  This is why we provide the KOLIfit services, to provide opportunities for people to explore which then becomes the pathway for sustainable healthy lifestyles.

There is 2 ways to import an activity into your KOLIfit account, by downloading a GPX file or  from a Strava account.  You can record your fitness activities on you Smartphone from the the hundreds of fitness tracking apps available (MapMyRun, Runkeeper, Garmin Connect, Nike+, etc.) or from a GPS unit.  Once you have recorded your activity, export the activity to your computer as a GPX file.  Then login to your KOLIfit page, click on "Activites," then  "Import Activity," then "GPX," then choose the file you wish to import from your computer.   

To import an activity using Strava, follow the instructions from the "Import Activity/Strava" prompts and your KOLIfit account will link directly with your Strava account. Once your account is linked, your Strava activities will automatically synch to your KOLIfit account.  All you have to do is select the activities that you want to import into your Dashboard challenge by clicking the Download tab.

Each month, to incentivze outdoor activity, KOLIfit sets a criteria for how much Time, Distance, Elevation, and Challenges need to be accumulated during a 1 month period.  When the Dashboard criteria has been accomplished, it will qualify members to recieve a prize from KOLIfit.  

For example,  If KOLIfit's Dashboard criteria was,  Distance: 4 miles, Elevation: 500',  Time: 2 hours,  KOLIfit Challenge: 1.  A KOLIfit member would have one month to accumulate these critera by particpating in as many OUTDOOR activites as it takes.  

To qualify for a pize you must import your activites into "My Activity" in your KOLIfit account.  This allows KOLIfit health professionals to verify that you have actually participated in the outdoor acitivty.
