Fitness Background: I have been a member of CKO Kickboxing Edison since February 2016 and decided to become an instructor in August of 2017. I’m currently in school for nutrition.
Why I CKO: I started cko to lose weight and as a confidence boost and it has absolutely exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere is incredible, and I couldn’t ask for better people to work with.
1 Word to describe your instructing style: Determined. I’m determined to always preform a high energy class, determined to make sure everyone is having a great workout, and determined to make sure everyone is having fun.
Fun Fact(s): When I’m not in the gym I am a nanny for 5 amazing kids.
Fitness Background: I began CKO as a member and instructor in 2014. I ran collegiate track for 3 years, becoming a captain in my last. And I’m CPT with the AFAA.
Why I CKO: The members. I love seeing people go after their goals, tackle their frustrations on the bags, and push themselves to be the best they can. I want to bring them back to that state of mind each and every time I teach.
Fun Fact: I went to school for Film Making and I’ve helped create the set lighting for companies like National Geographic, Vogue, Lifetime, and Conan.
Owners Mike Napolitano, Charles Osinowo, and Roy LaBue opened CKO Kickboxing Clark in October 2018! They originally started as members, then instructors at CKO Old Bridge before opening up CKO Edison in 2012 and CKO Woodbridge in 2017.
The CKO Clark team stand ready and willing to help you achieve all your fitness goals.
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.
