CKO Kickboxing offers total workout program

Local resident Nancy Lavell is petite, but she appears to be chiseled from granite. Her incredible physique came from years of athletics and her passion for exercise. Today, she and her daughter, Cheryl Franklin, own and teach classes at CKO Kickboxing San Diego-Miramar. Their fitness is a testament to the high-cardio exercise routine provided by kickboxing classes.

“I have always worked out my entire life. I’ve always done something,” Lavell said. “Even when my kids were small I was actually preparing to go into body building competitions.”

While she liked the female body building look, she didn’t necessarily want to bulk up her thighs and she hesitated at posing in competitions wearing what she termed “three Band-Aids.”

Six years ago, Lavell took a free trial class at CKO Kickboxing and she was hooked. She got her daughter involved, and said her son takes classes when he’s in town.

She began teaching classes and the previous owners eventually approached her about purchasing the franchise. Now, Lavell and her daughter have owned CKO Miramar for about six months, and those taking classes can rest assured that the owners are not only firm believers in kickboxing as an exercise, but prime examples of what happens when one sticks with the program.

CKO offers classes every day and each class lasts one hour. Beginners are given loaner gloves, but gloves are also available for purchase. Each newcomer is given a session of orientation. Then, the punching and kicking begins.

“It’s heavy bags. The bags are about 125-pounds each,” Lavell explained. “None of this is for self-defense; you are not hitting any person. You are just hitting a bag. There is a different combination of kicks and punches that we do throughout the routine … You can burn up to 1,200 calories in an hour doing this.”

CKO also incorporates strength training and offers personal training sessions. Classes for children are available and a low impact class is in the works. Each participant can go at their own pace, Lavell said.

CKO Miramar is at 7094 Miramar Road. Customers come from around surrounding businesses and the Del Mar-Encinitas area, but many are Scripps Ranch residents and a growing number are teenagers from Scripps Ranch High School, Lavell explained.

“You get a full-body workout, you can burn calories and you can also build muscle,” Lavell said. “For me, it’s high energy. It’s fun.”

  16. Camiler İslam kültüründe oldukça önemli mimari yapılardır. Camiler binlerce insanı bir araya getirirken, İslam mimarı ve motiflerini de içinde barındıran kültürel bir mirastır. Mimari yapısı, motifleri ve daha birçok özelliği ile göz alıcı güzelliğe sahip olan camilerde kullanılan halılar da dikkat çekici detaylar arasında yer alır. Cami halısı desenleri çeşitli yapılara sahiptir. Bunlar; saflı cami halısı, seccadeli cami halısı, göbekli cami halısı gibi modellerdir. Cami halısı modelleri üretiminde kullanılan hammadde ve desen açısından birbirinden farklılık gösterir. Bu modeller arasında en çok tercih edilen modeller arasında saflı cami halısı ve göbekli cami halısı modelleri bulunur. Saflı cami halısı modeli, düzenli ve eşit aralıkları ile saflara ayrılarak, ibadet eden kişilerin huzurlu bir ortam içerisinde ibadetlerini gerçekleştirmelerine yardımcı olur. Düzenli ve hijyenik bir yapıya sahip olan saflı cami halısı, desen ve motifleri ile estetik bir görünüm sağlar ve ibadet eden kişilerin huzurlu bir ibadet ortamında olmalarına yardımcı olur. Akrilik cami halıları ise fiziksel dış etkenlere karşı kuvvetli olmasıyla dikkat çeker ve bu özelliği sayesinde uzun süreli kullanım imkanı sağlar. Keçelenmenin önüne geçen malzemesi ile halının aşınması ya da iz tutması gibi durumların önüne geçer aynı zamanda akrilik cami halıları rutubet ve küf tutmayan özellikleri ile dört mevsim boyunca rahatlıkla kullanılabilir. Göbekli cami halısı modeli, adından da anlaşıldığı üzere halının orta kısmında büyük bir desenin yer aldığı halı modelidir. Ülkemizde yer alan camilerde sıklıkla tercih edilen bu halı modeli, ateşe karşı dayanıklıdır ve ısı yalıtımı, ses akustiği sağlar.
