CKO Kickboxing offers fitness-based kickboxing classes aimed at striking the vital organs of laziness, poor muscle tone, and excess fat over and over until they give up, resulting in a trimmer, fitter, stronger physique. While some studios downplay contact, CKO programs use heavy bags for striking, so gloves are required for class to properly guard fragile digits. Relentlessly wailing on a heavy bag can burn up to 800 calories during each one-hour class along with the cardio benefits of endurance activities and the fat-punching benefits of pummeling a huge, obese bag.
Every all-ages, co-ed class is lead by a CKO-certified instructor, who will give pointers on proper technique while providing high levels of motivation. Techniques are kept simple, with basic striking moves designed to emphasize the fitness aspect of the workout, rather than the competitive nature of kickboxing as a martial art. If you're looking to trim your figure and relieve some pent-up stress, or if a heavy bag stole your role in the high-school play, head to CKO to shape up and seek vengeance.
- A fat burning, muscle-building workout that blends striking with interval training. – Brandon Guarneri, Men's Fitness
- The staff makes sure to give you an orientation that helps to familiarize yourself with the different moves which makes it easier for you to follow along through your first workout there. They also emphasize the point that it's important to go at your own pace… – lisa h., Brooklyn location

About CKO Kickboxing
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 ripped, the gym caught on. CKO Kickboxing Franchise 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.
CKO Kickboxing is a fun way to exercise and get fit. There are no endless treadmill, elliptical, or stair climber workouts here, which can quickly lead to boredom and little results. Instead, at CKO you are coached through a 60-minute total body workout by a certified instructor using real heavy bags. After learning the basic kicks and punches that will get your entire body engaged, you're encouraged to go at your own pace before trainers push you past your comfort zone for a great stress-relieving workout.
