Fit Feature: Koryna Tucker

Koryna Tucker, 23, of Okemos, is an accountant for the State of Michigan who also runs an online personal training business. She said working out and staying in shape has helped her overcome depression and anxiety.

“I was in a very low place and the only thing that got me out of the house was the gym or going for a run,” she said. “That was three years ago. Now I work out five to six days a week and realize that it gives me energy, boosts my mood, relieves stress, and so much more.”

She said she targets specific muscle groups and likes to diversify her workouts.

“I love weightlifting. My favorite workout is upper body, but I also really enjoy running. After I lift, I usually run outside. If I feel extra sore, I like to do yoga to rest the body, but stay active.”

She currently works out at Anytime Fitness in Haslett, and Conquest Fitness. Her diet varies, depending on her goals, but she makes sure to stick with fresh fruit, vegetables and lean meats as much as possible. It helps her when the cravings hit.

“I don’t cheat on my diet because my diet is balanced and controlled by portions,” she said. “If I want sugar in my life, I will eat something sugary. As long as it is not the king-size candy bar, I am fine. I track everything I eat and make sure I know the nutrients of what I am putting in my body. Also, meal prepping every Sunday is a must! Being prepared helps me avoid situations where I have the opportunity to buy unhealthy foods.”

She said you only get one body, so take care of it.

“There is such a wide variety of ways to get your body moving so try different things until you find what you enjoy,” she said. “Do not wait for tomorrow, start now or it will never happen.” Check out her site at
