The gym is owned by franchisee Michael Opal, a former corporate executive who has a black belt in a traditional Japanese karate style.
"In my industry, everyone was stressed out all the time. But every time I went to the gym, I saw people were happy on the way in and happy on the way out. I wanted to be part of that," he said. "I wanted to open something for adults. They go home happy and they get good results from it".
"I wanted to do something that had a high energy, high cardio workout," he said. He investigated several health fitness franchises and decided CKO Kickboxing had the right stuff.
"The fitness industry is always growing. CKO Kickboxing is new in Florida. I wanted to get in on the ground floor."
