Rebecca Gardner

Fitness Background: Started at CKO Edison in January 2015, was a member for a year & a half before joining the CKO Kickboxing Team. I have been a competitive cheerleader for 16 years and absolutely loved every second of it. Unfortunately I tore a part of my achilles tendon, which resulted in cheerleading ending, but started my adventure with CKO Edison & Woodbridge!

Why I CKO: CKO is so much more than a place to workout for me. It's an outlet where I can release all of my stress. It's also a completely free judgement zone where I can be myself all the time. The friends that I have made have turned into family and create the BEST atmosphere. Together as a team we motivate one another to do our best always. CKO allows me to work on my physical and mental health and helps me create the best version of myself!

Fun Facts: I am a HUGE animal lover! Any animal I see I'm dying to pet, I'm worse than a little kid! During the day you can catch me in the classroom! I am a Kindergarten Teacher of Autism in a local district and absolutely love it!

Fitness Background: I was bored at your typical gym so I decided to try out CKO after seeing their booth at a street fair. I instantly fell in love and joined that night. Four months after, I found myself being an elementary school teacher by day and working the desk at CKO by night.

Why I CKO: I've lost 12 pounds (hopefully more to come) thanks to boxing and find myself happy as a clam sitting behind the desk. Who knew a part time job could change your life?

Fun Fact(s): I teach 3rd grade during the day & I love to take Zumba classes to mix up my workout. I also get hyped when any instructor plays rap or blink 182.
