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 Linden location, all students are treated as equals as they strap on gloves and step up to the heavy bag.

All the while, dance music plays to help motivate students to take it to the next level and include a couple high kicks into their electric-slide routines.

Carter Kustera's hand-painted works of art have been exhibited internationally as a part of U2's PopMart Tour and the national branding for Barneys CO-OP and Jonathan Adler stores. Carter Kustera's requirements ask that customers send an image of the person, pet, or perfectly portioned deli sandwich to undergo artistic apotheosis as a minimalistic outline emblazoned in black, red, light blue, light pink, kelly green, or lavender. Each individualized portrait is ensnared within the permeable pores of hot-press paper with gouache brushstrokes, a more opaque form of watercolor that appears richer and more reflective than other diluted dyes. Customize your silhouetted self-image with your choice of caption to verbally embody your personality or confuse viewers by epitomizing someone else's.
