Like his parents, Nico is a fitness enthusiast. He often leads his parents ’10 day Grab A Buddy’ challenge.
Boris recently explained that the #10DayGrabABuddy challenge is a “daily 5-minute workouts with a family member, a friend, co-worker, teacher, coach, your pastor, or anyone who needs some motivation.”
The Kodjoes, including their kids Nicolas and Sophie, recently launched a fitness app meant to encourage all members of the family to get up and move.

The app, called KoFit, has a range of workouts that include quick, five-minute exercises. There are also longer routines for those who have more time to devote to fitness. Boris Kodjoe shared his and Nicole Ari Parker’s motivation behind creating an app that includes both kids and parents during this year’s ESSENCE Festival.
“When we looked at the market and all these different workout apps, there’s one thing we never saw … we never saw any children.,” the celebrity father explained. “Children are most affected by obesity in this country,” Boris added. “Seventy-five percent of kids are overweight or obese.”
Kudos to the Kodjoes for keeping fit and Happy Birthday to Nico Kodjoe!
