MIAMI - Sept. 27, 2016 // PRNewswire // - CKO Kickboxing, one of the fastest growing health fitness franchises, soon will open its first fitness kickboxing gym in Miami/Brickell. The high quality, cross-training gym is in pre-sale mode and will offer special discounts to new members during the soft launch opening. The gym will hold kickboxing classes soon. The gym is located at 151 SW 7th Street, Miami, Florida 33130. On one of the best blocks in all of Brickell, CKO Miami/Brickell will soon offer a high intensity workout.
The family friendly gym offers Brickell residents an alternative to Pilates, yoga, martial arts and spinning classes. Kickboxing has many health benefits including improving heart function, burning calories, and a total lower and upper body workout.
The 4,200 square-foot gym features 70 heavy bags. It is open seven days a week. CKO Kickboxing Miami/Brickell posts itskickboxing classes online. Hour long classes run from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. so commuters can work out before or after work. Instead of sitting in a car after work, CKO members can avoid the rush hour traffic of the I95 by working out, relieving stress, and melting away any unwanted pounds.
The gym is owned by franchisee Fernando and Angela Andrade.
"Since we moved to Miami my wife and I looked at all other fitness activities in the area, but none of them offered what CKO Kickboxing did. We wanted to have fun while having a full body workout that we could enjoy together," he said.
"We wanted to bring Brickell a workout that members could enjoy, get results, and feel the benefits immediately after each class. CKO Miami's goal is to inspire people from all fitness backgrounds to build a better lifestyle. We'll show them how in our classes," said Andrade, who had been working in Finance on Wall Street for the past 9 years.
"I joined CKO Bay Ridge, out of Brooklyn, NY in 2012. There, I quickly became addicted to this workout. Even though I have always exercised and played soccer, through CKO I found a comprehensive workout that is quick, effective, and one that I can enjoy with my wife," he said. In 2014 they decided to move to Miami.
"Angela and I are thrilled to bring the CKO family to Brickell and all of Miami, where we believe fitness is at the core of most households, as it is in ours. We have an amazing pre-sale offer to get new members excited about joining our gym," he said.
Unlike other gyms, CKO Kickboxing features one heavy bag per person and is instructor driven. The family atmosphere and the sense of community also make CKO Kickboxing unique among gyms.
CKO Kickboxing is an effective exercise and weight loss program for men and women, old and young.
"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, it is not intimidating. The instructor controls the tempo, but the client controls the intensity. You can have a fun, effective and safe workout," said Joe Andreula, Founder of CKO Kickboxing.
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 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 Andreula. The company recently opened several gyms in Los Angeles.

CKO Kickboxing bags will be the last obstacle at Spartan races this year, at CitiField, Cowboy Stadium, Fenway Park and Citizens Bank Park.
"CKO Kickboxing is one of the leading fitness franchise opportunities in the country," he said. CKO Kickboxing also was named a Military Friendly Franchise® by G.I. Jobs Magazine.
CKO Kickboxing continues to grow because new franchise owners receive ongoing training on how to run a business and coaching on the latest trends in health and fitness.
"We treat our franchisee owners like they are family, because they are," Andreula said. "That's why so many people, including former military members, want to take advantage of our fitness franchise opportunity."
