Around the globe, in all facets of life, the Oura Community is overflowing with motivated people accomplishing some pretty impressive goals. From time to time, we will feature the stories of these individuals to inspire and enlighten us all.
Tomi Kokko is a health influencer and professional personal trainer whose passion is to help people achieve lasting, healthy lifestyle changes. For Tomi, those changes come through a combination of several factors; ranging from nutrition to exercise and one’s attitude towards life in general.
