Grand Opening festivities, including music from a live dj, food, a variety gift giveaways and personal training sessions, will be taking place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to CKO Kickboxing of Seattle owner Garett Renon.
The high quality, cross training gym provides a family friendly setting to Seattle residents and northern suburban Seattle residents who are looking for an alternative to Pilates, yoga, martial arts, cross-fit and spinning classes.
CKO Kickboxing, whose franchisees employ many former military members, is offering a 10 percent discount to current and former service personnel as well as police and fire personnel. Students and teachers also receive a 10 percent discount.
"I've always had a passion for fitness and I have always dreamed of owning a gym and helping other reach their full potential," said Renon, 30.
When Renon's wife, who is in the Navy, was transferred to Seattle recently, he got the chance to change his life.
"I decided to follow my passion of fitness,” he said. "I hated the 9-5 office lifestyle. I can't wait to just get in there and start changing people’s lives and help them lose weight."
