Strong, Lean and Confident!

November 24, 2014
We love when our members write us with their stories of success and inspiration. This particular story comes from CKO North Brunswick member Michelle.

Two years ago I saw myself as just a typical girl who ate whatever I pleased and maybe worked out if I felt up for it. Then, I found CKO North Brunswick and it officially changed my life! I’ve lost weight, gained muscle in all the right places, and more importantly I finally feel sexy and confident!

Of course, I’ve never in a million years saw myself punching or kicking a 130 pound bag. It sounds crazy, but after my first one-hour class, I couldn’t wait to come back and punch some more! From the large number of classes provided, to the fun fundraisers I get to participate in, I truly met some awesome people who have become family to me… especially the trainers! They endorse you with motivation, and are with you every step of the way; pushing you to your limits. Who wouldn’t love that?!

CKO Kickboxing is not like any other gym. Along with their kickboxing classes, CKO North Brunswick also offers personal training*, which I got involved with a few months ago. I have never felt more confident in my entire life thanks to Nick Lancetti! In the beginning, Nick wanted me doing all these crazy things like squats holding a medicine ball, push ups, weights, pad work, ropes… the list goes on and on! I looked at him like he was crazy, but he pushed me to my limits and I am now doing squats no problem, my punching has a lot more power, and my balance is on point. I am SO addicted… to the point where I get upset if I’m busy or too sore to take a class. It has officially become my second home, and I have no problem admitting it!

Two years ago I was just some typical girl. Today I am a strong, lean and confident woman, and I owe it all to CKO North Brunswick!


*Inquire with your local club to see if they offer personal training options.
