    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    CKO Kickboxing...worthwhile for basic aerobic/bag workouts?

    Did a Bullshido.net search before posting this and came up short, but I was curious if anyone had experience or opinions with respect to "CKO Kickboxing" franchises.

    I was thinking about signing up for some time here, just to get a good HIIT workout combined with some time on the heavy bag. I already go to a gym, but they don't have this kind of equipment or trainers.

    I'm not under any sort of impression these places are real kickboxing gyms, but I'm intrigued because it seems like it might be a fun place to get a few hours of exercise in a week...it's cheap and there's one really close to me.

    Grabbed a random CKO video in case someone is not familiar, but after going through several videos, these places seem to be popular and the trainers seem to be of relatively decent quality.

    Again, please...mercy...because this is not for fight training, but for giving me another excuse to get off my butt and hit things whilst sweating.

    We had a guy from Japan who did Kyokushin there and does it with us now too, who first came here for college. He signed up for a kickboxing elective at the college and was SO CONFUSED. "Why punch down like this? What's down there? How does that work???" I think he was expecting K-1 type stuff, or MT or something, lol.
    He was also, I think, the only guy.

    I'd suspect most serious striking gyms have cardio kickboxing/conditioning classes. You can probably join for a reduced rate that just gives you access to that material. You'll get a workout, more reasonable instruction, and be less gay.
