For today's side deal, $15 gets you a pair of heavy-bag boxing gloves from CKO Kickboxing Brooklyn, a $25 value. These heavy, high-quality gloves work in tandem as an indispensible accessory for a wide variety of workouts and disciplines.
Boxing mitts are required for any class at CKO or, for that matter, anytime you'll be walloping a heavy bag with mitts of fury. The insulating foam protects your five-fingered tools of persuasion, allowing you to release every ounce of aggression into the bag until it spills its sandy insides. Heavy bags are a staple of any cardio-combat discipline, including boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, and Krav Maga, so even if you move to a faraway land with no CKO in sight, you'll be able to use the gloves for continued practice. They also look great hanging from rear-view mirrors.
Most patrons of CKO Kickboxing Brooklyn are too busy working up a sweat to write many reviews of their experiences. The Brooklyn Paper featured CKO in March 2008, and ProTrainerOnline interviewed CKO trainer Joe Virga as part of their Spotlight Trainer of the Month series. Six Yelpers give CKO 4.5 stars.
- At CKO Kickboxing, however, the workout is addicting – you just want more – not to mention effective.
