Näin Cuckoo Workout syntyi
It all started in 2014
Veera Lehmonen istui kollegansa Ida Männyn kanssa ammattikorkeakoulun työharjoittelussa, missä he huomasivat istuvansa koko päivän yhteen putkeen. Tämä oli aktiivisille nuorille huolestuttava ajatus, joten Veera ja Ida päättivät laittaa kellon soimaan päivittäin klo 12.00. Kun hälytys koitti, naiset lähtivät hyppimään sataa haarahyppyä.
The whole office joined!
People at the office started showing interest for Veera’s and Ida’s activity, and soon joined them every day. The office was filled with laughter and smiles, and everyone felt refreshed after jumping around. After this Veera and Ida wanted to move employees around the globe, and this is when Cuckoo got started!
CTO Mika Niinistö joined Cuckoo in 2016. He’s the wizard behind the Cuckoo app and the new features of Cuckoo. Familiar face from the videos Linda Kuula, started as a model, but soon joined the team as a full time employee. She has worked in different roles and currently works as the COO.
