Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get five kickboxing classes (a $100 value) at CKO Kickboxing, with two locations in Hoboken. After taking the first class, you must use the remaining four classes within one month.
CKO Kickboxing’s battery of experienced instructors burns calories and tones bodies via one-hour kickboxing workouts. During each session, fighters strap on boxing gloves and strike punching-bag opponents with uppercuts, jabs, and kicks, burning up to 1,200 calories and instilling fear in inanimate objects. As bags slowly bruise, dedicated coaches unleash a bevy of simple fighting techniques sprinkled with seedlings of encouragement to keep exercisers focused on body betterment. Classes are tailored to all age and experience levels, and are offered several times throughout the week. Peruse the online schedule for class times.
Students are required to provide their own boxing gloves for the classes.
