ClubKO gets better and better!
CKO Kickboxing has been a major presence in the Hoboken fitness scene for over 10 years now. The gym has grown and prospered because of the fantastic results their well-known classes produce. A lot of people who find themselves bored or frustrated with regular gym routines and classes have taken refuge at CKO, never to look back — which is how they got their tagline “Get Addicted”.
With the recent expansion of the 900 Madison Street location to include an additional 10,000 square feet of weight training and cardio equipment, CKO now offers everything the fitness enthusiast or beginner might need to get the workout they are looking for. CKO is the only gym in town to boast the complete line of Hammerstrength weight training equipment, as well as numerous treadmills, elliptical machines, stairmasters, bikes, free weights… you name it! But even with the expanded space and equipment, CKO has not raised their rates! CKO is a fantastic value, with access to their 12 locations , all of their classes and all of their equipment for the price of one membership.
CKO is currently offering two-for-one on the enrollment fee for their one year membership, so if you haven’t been in yet to check it out, call 201-963-7774, visit www.ckokickboxing.com or stop by 900 Madison Street or 127 Grand Street in Hoboken.

Warning – there’s a good chance you body will change!
ClubKO is the ONLY gym that has kept me motivated to kick some ass and stay in shape. Don’t sell yourself short on taking just the kickboxing class, everyone should know that they offer private weight training sessions that give your body the ‘oomph’ it needs to look fantastic!
I have been going to ClubKO for almost 2 years, and have been taking private weight training for 1 year (1x/week). Had I not gone to this gym I’d truly be a cellulite queen by now. I’ll give you a breakdown of what they offer:
Kickboxing classes: offered at 2 locations at different times in the morning and evening, 7 days a week, so there’s always an opportunity to burn some calories. Each gym is equipped with bags – some soft, some knuckle-breaking hard. The 900 Madison joint is a larger space than the Grand location, so you’ll probably do more running, kicks and lunging around there. There are currently over 100 bags at the Madison St. location. The Grand location is smaller, and because of the way the bags are arranged it is difficult to see the instructor sometimes, therefore I recommend that newcomers take their first class at the Madison location until they get accustomed to the routine.
There are several instructors, all of whom are extremely energetic and experienced. Each instructor has a different approach: some do more bag work, some integrate weights, some incorporate lunging around the gym. Don’t stick with just one instructor because the variety you get from several instructors is beneficial to your body.
I must say, the MUSIC is a major motivator and they JAM to all types: rock, hip hop, club, dance and techno. Again, each instructor has their own taste and you’ll find out soon enough who plays the music that makes you want to SMACK DOWN!
Each class is one hour, and if you’re not dripping sweat within 20 minutes then you’re not working hard enough. You get out of it what you put into it. What really aggravates me are those wimpy chicks who barely hit the bag. I think to myself, what are you paying for? For god’s sake – hit the DAMN BAG like it’s some mugger! Forget the make up and the nice hair — you’re there to kick some butt. (Hoboken411 note: There are over 1500 members there, most who attend regularly. She just wants to see everyone as motivated as her, but may not realize not everyone has been going for 2 years. ClubKO has a better member retention rate than most gyms. The instructors will eventually get those girls to hit harder. Some take longer than others.)
The workout will get every part of your body: arms, thighs, calves, gluts, abs, and even that tiny muscle in your pinky toe. Every part. If it’s your first time, I guarantee you will be SORE for the first two days — don’t let that stop you from coming. It’ll get better after that. Overall, the classes are great and you’ll leave the gym with a red face and wet clothes every time.
Don’t just stop at kickboxing. ClubKO offers private training as well. I strongly suggest you try it because it’s the ‘icing on the cake’ when it comes to getting your body in shape. Again, a variety of trainers that help you with monitoring your body fat, diet, and a workout that right for you. Go once per week and you’ll never look back!
If you are one of those people that have been slacking off for months (and we all do!) and suddenly there’s a special event or summer’s just around the corner, then strongly consider the 10-week Program. If you need/want to lose some body fat real fast, this is the bomb. It’s no joke, though, you have to commit to the Program. You’ll have a food plan (lots of protein) and a certain level of exercise during the week in order to see the results you crave.
But that goes for anyone who wants to get in shape or stay in shape. You can’t do it by diet alone, or by exercise alone. You have to combine the two to in order to be physically fit and feel fantastic.
I can’t say enough good things about this place. I have been to other gyms, I’ve tried running on my own, I’ve bought tapes for in-home exercise – and they are all temporary motivators. NOTHING has worked like the programs at ClubKO. And for those newcomers who are a little shy about their bodies – we all start there, ok? I PROMISE you this: if you put forth your hardest effort 3+ times per week, plus alter your eating habits if they’re not so great, you will notice a change in your physique WITHIN 4 WEEKS. And that, my dear, is the best feeling and the ultimate motivator to get healthy.
Try it. Try harder. It works.
