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. Trainers work with students of varying martial-arts or fitness experience and guide classes through up-tempo workouts of blistering jabs, uppercuts, roundhouse kicks. Each 60-minute class integrates strength-training and abdominal exercises, which help each participant burn up to 1,200 calories per class. 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.
