Shannon “the Cannon” Hudson, CEO and Founder of 9Round Kickbox Fitness Centers and reigning IKF World Champion, is pleased to announce the award of a 9Round franchise to Lee and Jennifer Ogburn of Madisonville, Louisiana.
Said Shannon, “this is another milestone for 9Round, entering the state of Louisiana. We are especially pleased to award the franchise to Lee and Jennifer Ogburn. They planned ahead to live their dream of forming their own business. They are another one of our family oriented franchise owners, with a love for fitness and a story behind it.”
In 9Round tradition, we share Jennifer’s story about why she and Lee joined the 9Round Nation as a franchise owners:
“5 years ago my Mom was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver due to fatter liver disease … that was my wake up moment. At over 200 pounds, 209 to be exact (I stopped weighing when I saw that number), I decided I had to get my health in check. From that moment on I changed the way I ate … It has taken the last several years as this was a gradual lifestyle change to become a healthier person, wife, Mom, and friend. Along the way my husband Lee adopted a healthier way of life as well. To this day we are healthier, and happier. I’ve lost 45 pounds and Lee has lost 30 pounds.
I knew fitness was going to be my way of life forever so much so I became a Personal Trainer in 2012. While looking on-line for a personal trainer job the idea of owning my own business popped up in my mind so I decided to look around. Nothing seemed to fit until I saw 9Round. Right away I could see it was the way I like to workout, and anyway who doesn’t love to punch a bag? I ran the idea by Lee and we decided to look into it further.
Attending Discovery Day in June 2012, was all Lee and I needed, WE WERE IN! We loved the feel of the concept and their management team. We loved the story behind 9Round, and from there our decision was made.
We are now the 1st 9Round franchisee in the state of Louisiana, and couldn’t be more happy with our decision. Here’s to a great 2013 with the 9Round Team!”
