In CKO Kickboxing’s action-packed classes, students wail away at heavy, hanging punching bags, working out stress while building muscles with every punch and kick. Because the bags are so heavy, they add significant resistance to the workout, toning muscles more effectively than punching slabs of beef and then eating the evidence. During the 60-minute classes, students rotate between cardio and strength training, bolstering heart rates and targeting arms, legs, and cores.

The Pavilion cultivates every species of physical activity within its 66,000-square-foot indoor complex and adjacent outdoor fields. The eclectic indoor space hosts soccer, volleyball, and curling face-offs, as well as a year-round ice-skating facility, bounce house, and inline-skating space. Fledgling ice skaters slip and slide during public skating sessions or take part in the U.S. Figure Skating Association's basic skills program to grease their triple axels. As the temperature rises, members make a mad dash outdoors to one of six tennis courts and three soccer fields, or hail a ride on George, The Pavilion's historic miniature passenger train. The complex's Boundless Playground offers a space where children with disabilities can be included in play thanks to accessible slides, swings, and climbing structures.
