Studio Manager, CKO Instructor, and Personal Mitt Session Trainer
Hard to believe there was once a time when Gabby had never done CKO Kickboxing, but back in 2015 she started as a new member just like the rest!
Gabby fell in love with the full body workout that helped her burn more calories in one hour than any other class. She joined CKO Huntington Beach as a part-time instructor and quickly discovered her passion for sharing our proven concept to help others achieve their fitness goals, prompting the journey to her current position as Studio Manager.
CKO Kickboxing Instructor & Personal Mitt Session Trainer
Her attention to technique and creative combinations will challenge your body AND your mind! Kym started with us in 2016, shortly after our opening, and feels like we are one big family, working hard, encouraging each other, and pushing towards our goals together.
Not only does she lead a mean class but her personal mitt training is pure fire! This OC native is a dedicated member of her church, an avid jiu-jitsu competitor, and enjoys as much time as possible with her husband and puppy.
CKO Kickboxing Instructor
Your legs will be cryin’ after this Cali girl’s class! Carla started with CKO in 2018 on a membership trial and decided to take her passion for the workout to the next level and join the team. She loves how CKO pushes her to be the best version of herself and the workout never fails to challenge her. When she’s not crushing the bags, this tough mama enjoys hiking, baking, and spending time with her kiddos!
Originally from Grand Rapids, MI, this wardrobe stylist by day kicks it into CKO style by night!
Janelle started kickboxing in 2015 and hasn’t turned back since. She loves that CKO can be modified for everyone, providing a safe and FUN place to get the maximum from your workout.
When she’s not pushing you to those goals, you can bet she’s exploring a new city or most likely at the beach!
Our journey began in Hoboken, NJ, home of the original CKO Kickboxing. After moving out west and having our first child, we were in desperate need of a killer workout that would get us our best bodies and keep us motivated, just like the kickboxing we knew and loved back east… so we decided to bring CKO to Huntington Beach and share this proven concept with others.
Our studio was founded on our passion for the CKO workout and a vision of helping others, just like you, achieve their goals. The CKO class is uniquely designed to allow all levels, beginner to advanced, go at their own pace and modify as needed. At CKO HB, we all have our own bags so you can push yourself as much as you want without feeling pressured.
In the last couple of years, we have seen members not only transform their bodies but also their lives, reducing stress and anxiety, losing weight, building confidence and improving overall health tremendously. We are so grateful to be on this journey with so many amazing people, and we look forward to watching our story continue with you!
While our family and our CKO community have grown, our mission remains the same. Our team is dedicated to seeing you reach your fitness goals. Wherever you are in your fitness and skill level, we’re here to help and hope to see you soon!
Jamie & Dave, Owners of CKO Kickboxing Huntington Beach
Our Trial Class is available for first time guests only. If you would like to take advantage of this one time offer, you may sign up directly through each club's schedule. Plan on arriving 15-20 minutes before your scheduled class time. Once registered, you will be provided with an orientation of the punches and kicks you will be using throughout the class. Our classes are geared so you can “go at your own pace” so there is no need to be intimidated. You’ll love the CKO experience!
Each class is 1-hour in length and offers a total body workout. You will sweat, de-stress and enjoy exercising more than ever.
Since you will be punching a heavy bag, you will need to protect your hands with boxing/MMA gloves. Feel free to bring your own or we have a variety of gloves available for purchase at the gym. Wear loose fitting, comfortable gym clothes. We guarantee you’re going to sweat. Therefore, shorts will probably be a good option. You will not be permitted to participate in a class unless you are wearing sneakers/tennis shoes. Please bring a towel and you will definitely need water or some type of sports drink. These are also available for purchase at the gym.
Once you become a member, you can begin taking classes immediately.
The majority of our members have never taken a kickboxing class prior to coming to CKO. However, they get addicted to the workout quickly.
Since everyone has their own heavy bag to workout on and goes at their own pace, our classes are geared for all fitness levels. Our certified instructors are trained to motivate and push each member to their desired results.
If a young adult under the age of 18 is interested, a parent/guardian must sign for him or her to take a class. Please inquire within to see if we are currently offering programs for children.
We have both male and female members and the classes are mixed.
Your membership entitles you to unlimited classes. You can workout every day if you like.
We have many different programs available. Once you have completed your trial class, one of our representatives will go over different pricing options.
All of our locations are individually owned and operated. Depending on the market, it can range anywhere from $5 - $20 to take a class in another gym.
We offer our 10 Week Challenge Program at different times of the year. Once signed up as a prospect in our system, you will be notified whenever the program is offered.
Due to popular demand, some CKO Kickboxing clubs offer group, co-ed, children's kickboxing classes. Please inquire with your local CKO Kickboxing club to see if the classes are available, and let your voice be heard.
