Since its founding in 1998, World Karate has been dedicated to training students of all ages to the black-belt level. Two karate programs introduce children to the basic techniques of its ancient self-defense form, in part through drills designed to develop gross motor skills and discipline. Alternatively, the cardio kickboxing program throws adults into a regimen of weight training, plyometrics, and circuit training designed to improve fitness while introducing striking techniques. Instructors oversee groups of adults and teens alike in the comprehensive martial-arts program, which puts equal emphasis on self-defense and regular goal setting.
CKO Kickboxing's Joseph Andreula opened up his first gym in Hoboken, New Jersey, back in 1997. In that humble location, the fitness guru helped his clients shed their spare pounds and ratchet up their self-esteem with intense kickboxing workouts. Once word got out that Joseph's program of punching and kicking weighted bags got you more ripped than stay-at-home programs of punching and kicking ghosts, the gym caught on. CKO Kickboxing locations began to pop up throughout the country, where the newly expanded company's commitment to delivering heart-pumping workouts even earned a mention on NBC's Today. At the Franklin location, a forest of professional, 100- to 125-pound bags serves as the backdrop to kickboxing classes throughout the week. Their coed team of 11 seasoned coaches leads signature CKO workout sessions, along with a kickboxing bridal boot camp and nutritional program. The staff even offers complimentary babysitting sessions for children.

Upbeat music and a lively party atmosphere aren't the only things that make Shore Fit Club a family-friendly environment. Its cadre of fitness classes for students of all ages, such as Zumba for kids, suspension training, and yoga, don't tell the whole story, either. What really demonstrates the fitness facility's devotion to families is how it looks after little ones so that busy parents can focus on burning as many calories and sacrificial donuts as possible.
Sensei MJ Singh shares the benefits of his extensive martial-arts training with students both young and old. During his karate for kids classes, Singh provides high-energy fun for tykes as they master not only self-defense, but also self-discipline, which may give them the fortitude to complete schoolwork and staring contests against teddy bears. For teens, he blends the techniques of western boxing, wrestling, Brazilian jujistu, and muay thai into a comprehensive mixed martial-arts class. He also welcomes parents to train alongside their kids. If adults seek a full-grown fitness regimen, they can enroll in cardio-focused fitness kickboxing classes or take krav maga self defense, which was developed for and by the Israeli Defense Force.
