Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in kickboxing training. Give fist paintings a little extra artistry with today’s Groupon to CKO Kickboxing. Choose from the following locations: Chatham, Randolph, or Whippany, then choose between the following options:
- For $39, you get a five-class punch card (a $100 value).
- For $49, you get one month of unlimited kickboxing classes (a $149 value).
Students must bring their own gloves or purchase a pair of boxing gloves (up to $20) onsite.
The instructors at CKO Kickboxing help students to shape up swiftly by pitting them against heavy, weighted bags. The weight of these bags adds an extra degree of resistance that’s typically absent from shadowboxing or arm-wrestling sand castles, so students can expect to burn up to 800 calories in a single 60-minute workout. Class routines change regularly to maintain variety, often blending footwork with core-centric workouts. And because most classes emphasize the cardiovascular benefits of kickboxing rather than fighting elements, students are free to train without enduring the pressure of sparring or picking the perfect ringside entrance song.
