CKO OUTDOOR CLASS FAQ
How do CKO Outdoor Classes work?
CKO Outdoor is a separate program outside of CKO Indoor. To take a class, you’ll need to book via the calendar above. Classes are $20 each and are limited to 20 people per class. The REAL CKO Heavy Bags are outdoors and classes are 45 minutes each.
Can I come to the CKO Outdoor Classes if I’m a CKO Indoor Member?
CKO Outdoor is different from CKO Indoor and do not function via the same system. Any participant for CKO Outdoor is required to book through the link above and pay for the class. These classes are designed for those who prefer to be outdoors as the pandemic continues. Thank you to the City of Hoboken, our landlord, ShopRite, and everyone involved in helping to bring this option to our CKO family with our CKO Outdoor Classes!
How much is each CKO Outdoor Class?
$20. We use this money to fund the program, pay staff, and maintain the equipment. We kept the rate as low as possible to still be an affordable option to those looking for continued outdoor workouts.
How come I can’t see more classes available in the calendar?
We will continue to add classes as we go through the new season and can better gauge demand. To help keep things fair for everyone, we’ve made it so that the calendar updates on a rolling 14-day system. You can only book into a class up to 336 hours in advance. Please make sure to check the calendar and only book for classes that you know you can attend. Due to the limited allowable capacity, we cannot give refunds or credits if you are unable to show up to a class you’ve booked into.
How does social distancing work for these classes?
Each bag is spaced 6 feet away from the next with a maximum of 20 participants per class. You simply book via the calendar above, pay online, and then come to the check-in area. We ask that you wear a mask at the check-in area. For safety reasons, you are not required to wear a mask during class since we are outdoors.
How will cleaning and sanitizing work?
We will sanitize the bags with a cleaning solution that is stronger than the minimum CDC recommendation. The solutions is anti-viral and anti-bacterial. As an extra precaution, we ask that you not touch the bags with your hands, but rather, only make contact with the bag while your workout gloves are on.
Do I need to bring my gloves?
Yes, you do. Gloves are required for all CKO classes. We have some available for sale, but for safety reasons, we can not provide refunds once you’ve tried on the gloves. If you need to purchase a pair, you can simply contact us via phone (you can reach out to us via the phone number on our website) at least one hour prior to the class and we will have the options ready for sizing when you arrive. CKO Starter Gloves are $20 and we can take credit card or cash. Please also arrive about 10 to 15 minutes early if this is your first time.
Should I bring anything else?
We recommend bringing a towel to dry off and some water if you happen to need it. Unfortunately, we will not be able to sell water during these classes.
What will the class structure be?
The class will run 45 minutes in total. The trainers will keep everyone performing different combinations and exercises at your bag. There will be no running or exercises that will cross over into other bags.
Am I allowed to come if I am not a member?
Yes, you can. If you decide to book a class and it is your first time, you will need to arrive 10 to 15 minutes early. Please contact us in order to receive instruction (you can message or call us directly at the number listed on our website). If you do not have gloves, you can purchase them prior to the class so they can be ready for pickup once you arrive.
What happens if it rains?
We will update the schedule each day for the next day as we become aware of the weather schedule. In the event of heavy rains or inclement weather, we will cancel the class. If you have paid for a class, we will issue a refund and you can simply reschedule or book into another class again.
What if I have a suggestion?
There might be kinks in the process since it’s new on our end but we will always find ways to resolve any new issues that pop up and improve any way we can. We had great success last year with this program but this is still a new way of doing things so we promise we’ll work to figure everything out with you if anything comes up! If you have ideas to improve or need any help with anything, just communicate with us and we’ll figure it out together! We’re proud to say that we have returned every single call, text, and message within a short time that we have had since the state-mandated shutdowns began last year and we’ll keep being responsive to help everyone we can!

We would like to thank the City of Hoboken, ShopRite, our Landlord, our Trainers, our Staff, and everyone involved in helping us bring these outdoor classes back to the Hoboken community. While we are referred to as a gym, we know that our time in Hoboken for the last 24 years has proven that we are so much more. For many, coming to CKO is a stress-relief, a community of friends, a support system, and a vital part to our physical and mental well-being. We want all our members and future members to know that we believe in bringing a positive outlet for everyone to move forward and grow together. Our mission has never simply been solely focused on exercise, but rather, on bringing hope and health to everyone around us. With open arms, we proudly say, THANK YOU!
NOW LET’S DO THIS, CKO FAMILY!
