CKO Kickboxing franchises are built on the idea that everyone should love going to work in the morning. Our franchisees are engaged and motivated from the second they step foot in the gym. This is the ideal attitude for other individuals that are ready to change their lives and positively affect those around them.

CKO Kickboxing uses the training elements from boxing to develop a total body workout that produces real results. All our classes are centered around group fitness to help members stay engaged so they are excited to come back. All workouts are completely customizable, which allows everyone to work at their own pace, no matter their age, gender or fitness level. During the kickboxing classes, trainers never focus on the fighting aspect of the sport or use advanced techniques, so all members always feel comfortable participating. This concept creates a welcoming environment that motivates people to come back every day for a fun, high-impact workout.


Nearly 80% of franchise owners were members before joining the team, which speaks to the passion that the community has. There is a natural progression for this to occur because CKO members are dedicated to their own success. Franchise owners understand that it’s not only their own lives that are changing, but the lives of each member as well. This unique position is inspiring, but also requires someone who is highly motivated and driven.

Becoming a CKO Kickboxing Franchisee has been one of my greatest and happiest accomplishments. CKO has changed my life and it is the very reason I chose to become an owner. Fitness has always been an especially important aspect of my life. Having never been a business owner (my background was in Education), I worried I was not experienced enough to own and run a business. Thankfully, Joe, Rich, and the entire team at headquarters has always helped me through every situation I have had to navigate.

They have all always been there to talk to for guidance and have become a second family to me. I can call any one of them, and they inspire and guide me through any difficult situation I experience. I truly feel like family and not just a business/franchise with them. This has been one of my greatest and happiest accomplishments. CKO changed my life as a member and it is the very reason, I chose to become an owner.
