USFCA Master and fencing Olympian Steve Kaplan was inducted into the New York University Athletics Hall of Fame for his feats as the captain of the 1971 national-championship team and his six-year stint as NYU's head coach, during which time he produced five national champions. Since founding Cobra Fencing in 2002, Kaplan and his team of dedicated duelists have taught kids, adults, and vengeance-seeking buccaneers the way of the sword. Whether fencing for fitness, pleasure, or competition, students proceed at their own pace through the intimate classes, starting with footwork essentials before learning the finer points—pun intended—of the sport's three unique blades.

Each year, local homeowners open up their yards so that visitors can peek into their diminutive urban gardens.

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 Bayonne 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.
