We're in this together

We're in this together

At 9Round, we believe everyone should be able to show up, fight, and find their personal best without anything getting in their way. In order to achieve this, everyone – from Home Office employees to franchise owners to members – must feel welcomed and supported. We leave no one behind.

Space for everyone

At 9Round World HQ, we understand that people are more than who they are when they’re clocked in at work. We’ve always had a commitment to supporting our team members as they grow, from continuing their education to building families. Here are some ways that’s reflected in our operations.

Commitment to diversity, equity & inclusion

There’s still more to be done. At 9Round, we believe in continuous improvement. We are creating a culture that welcomes and includes all. To do that, we can’t just make a simple statement – we must make an ongoing commitment to learning and growth.

We are doing the ongoing work to sustain a healthy space for both our team and our members to work in, exercise in, and grow together in.

That means we must maintain an environment where folks can show up as their whole selves, feel safe, respected, and always feel empowered to tell us how we can do better. One of our core values, Kaizen, means to continuously improve. With that in mind, we know there will always be room to do better together.
