LAWNDALE, Calif. - Nov. 22, 2016 // PRNewswire // - CKO Kickboxing, one of the fastest growing health fitness franchises, will launch its newest fitness kickboxing gym with Black Friday Specials on Nov. 25, 2016 in Lawndale. One hour-long CKO Kickboxing class is a total body workout that incorporates the punches of boxing and the kicks of kickboxing along with calisthenics and aerobics to give a fast-paced workout like no other.
The 4,000 square-foot CKO Kickboxing gym is located across from the South Bay Galleria Mall, at 4415 Redondo Beach Blvd. It is at the intersection of Hawthorne, Artesia and Redondo Beach.
The Black Friday special includes two offerings. People who sign up before noon will get a free enrollment. People who sign up after noon will pay only $20 for their enrollment, which is less than the normal enrollment fee. Everyone who signs up will receive boxing gloves and a T-shirt. Classes start on Saturday morning.
The new gym features 50 heavy bags so that each participant has his/her own heavy bag. All classes are led by motivated instructors whose passion for fitness and kickboxing flows onto the participants so that the classes are action-packed, burn calories, and reduce stress in an atmosphere designed to be fun and engaging.
Asha Ross, an international DJ from London who has lived in LA for eight years, owns the new gym.
"I love to help people," said Ross. "One of the things I like about the entertainment industry is that people can forget their worries, their work and their bills so they can enjoy themselves. I think a great fitness club can do the same thing. They put on their boxing gloves and they can forget their worries and get fit at the same time."
"Having worked in night life and entertainment, I realized that you need to be strong. You are up late hours. You are surrounded by a lot of temptation like junk food and alcohol. I was very aware of being fit. I was around a lot of older DJs who were not in good shape. I knew I had to focus on my health and fitness. You have to eat healthy. I worked out in hotel gyms. It has served me well."
Turning her passion for health into a business was a natural evolution.
"I was looking for a business that was related to health and fitness. I had trained in martial arts and kickboxing. So when I moved to LA, a friend recommend I go to CKO Kickboxing. I fell in love with it. It was a perfect fit," she said.
CKO Kickboxing is one of America's fastest-growing franchises according to Entrepreneur Magazine, which included the kickboxing gym franchise in its Franchise 500 list of best franchises in 2015. The magazine rated CKO Kickboxing the Top Personal Service Franchise in the Fitness category in 2016.
CKO Kickboxing has several gyms in Los Angeles County, Orange County and San Diego County.
"CKO Kickboxing is one of the most trusted names in fitness franchises. CKO Kickboxing is a true, nationwide sports fitness franchise with gyms from coast to coast in approximately 75 locations," said Joseph Andreula, Founder of CKO Kickboxing. The company recently opened several gyms in the Los Angeles area, Manhattan, and Miami, among others. "The beauty of our exercise classes is that anybody can do it. Since it focuses more on the fitness aspect rather than the martial arts aspect, it is not intimidating. The instructor controls the tempo, but the client controls the intensity. You can have a fun, effective, and safe workout."
CKO Kickboxing continues to grow because new franchise owners receive ongoing training on how to run a business and also receive coaching on the latest trends in health and fitness.
"We treat our franchisee owners like they are family, because they are," Joseph Andreula said. "That's why so many people, including former military members, want to take advantage of our fitness franchise opportunity."
