During her more than 15 years in the fitness industry, studio owner Andrea Powers has obtained certifications in yoga, spinning, personal training, and lifestyle coaching. Now with her own studio, Andrea, alongside husband and fellow instructor John, leads an experienced group of staff members who specialize in varied practices such as yoga therapy and Pilates. Steeped in the studio?s welcoming, judgment-free atmosphere, the staff strives to help patrons of all shapes and sizes to achieve their fitness goals.
Andrea?s yoga classes range from beginner-friendly sessions to vigorous Vinyasa flows that build strength and flexibility while banishing calories to sweat towels. With the aid of props and a ballet barre, Pilates classes tone firm tummies and lithe limbs.
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.
The 35-mile-per-hour speeds of Zoom Ziplines? four lines may feel dangerous, but that?s just an illusion. Daily inspections by staff members ensure safe, smooth trips for all customers who meet height and weight requirements. During two-hour trips, customers cross a suspension bridge on foot and fly down four ziplines that stretch up to 1,500 feet, breathing in mountain air and taking in stunning vistas. The course?s tandem ziplines allow friends to race or merely enjoy side-by-side views of the lake, local wildlife, and clouds playfully contorting themselves into the shapes of former presidents.

Doctors Michael and Andrew Grano, voted the favorite chiropractors in Sussex County in the 2010 New Jersey Herald Readers' Choice awards, relieve spinal and postural difficulties with chiropractic care aimed at preventing common sources of pain or illness. Consultations begin with a professional evaluation of the spine to detect irregularities or con artists masquerading as vertebrae, and a computerized orthotic scan reveals any postural problems caused by weight distribution on the feet. Digital spinal x-rays arm the skeletal therapists with a glossy map to chart treatment, which may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and massage. Patients can follow their treatment or schedule a separate appointment for a deep-tissue massage in the relaxing oasis room at the hands of Grano's experienced massage therapists. The specialist combats chronic tension with gradual strokes and deep pressure on a specific area that can leave some muscles sore and others jealous for attention. In addition, a physician will evaluate each individual's nutritional profile to point out dietary habits that can enhance their overall wellness, and present two tickets to a nutritional seminar.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We offer a comprehensive curriculum that is challenging for students. In the martial arts system, people advance through the ranks and when a rank is achieved, they move on and learn new techniques. Our traditional approach emphasizes self-defense so students are learning skills that can help them with confidence and focus. We work on self-enrichment through meditation and internal energy development.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Meditation, Qigong exercises, and yoga.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
At the core of taekwondo training is a creed or code of ethics. This is called the five tenets of taekwondo, which are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit. Not only do we try to instill these virtues in our students but we as a martial arts academy try to run our business with these words in mind. We seek to train the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.
