Passersby that peer inside the windows of CKO Kickboxing won’t see treadmills, ellipticals, or stairclimbers. Instead, they’ll spot rows of heavy bags lurching backward and sideways from the force of participants’ kicks and right hooks. The kickboxing-focused gym doesn’t need excessive equipment or a catalog full of workout programs—the high-intensity fitness regimen of kickboxing is more than enough to shape up CKO members. Students of all levels reap the system’s multifaceted benefits, burning up to 1,200 calories per class, releasing stress, and developing a six-pack more realistically than drawing on their midsections with a marker.

Visitors love to get in the fun at iPlay America, enjoying the racing go-karts and glowing laser battles that simultaneously challenge and entertain guests inside the 115,000-square-foot amusement facility. That's why it was named best kids destination in Central New Jersey by New Jersey Monthly. Like its outdoor cousins, the indoor fun park houses more than 200 motorized attractions and carnival-style games for the whole family. Interactive amusements, such as the iPA Speedway, place patrons in the driver's seat of a real vehicle, and simulated sessions, including the Kite Flyer, tantalize visual senses with video images and sound effects. Five nourishment purveyors–Game Time Bar and Grill, Sonny's Boardwalk Grill, Mixx Frozen Yogurt, Boardwalk Bites, and Broadway Sweets Candy Store–sate visitors' hunger.

If a subject is art-related, chances are you can learn about it at Around the Corner Art Center.

With all these disciplines under one roof, there is a class for everyone from children to college art students to adults. The staff's love of art even extends to the birthday parties they host, with artistic themes that may include recreating a famous painting or learning how to draw cartoons, anime, and manga.
