Franchise Facts

fact #1

The 9Round Franchise Model has a low start up cost and easy build out.

fact #2

The overhead is kept low because the business can be ran with 1-4 employees. Also, there is no expensive equipment such as treadmills and TV's to replace.

fact #3

Training clients each and every day helps you stay fit. You're always helping people and showing them how to do the exercise properly.

fact #4

Our training and support is the best. The management team has had over 30 years of business experience operating health clubs.

fact #5

You have access to our Corporate Staff Monday - Friday. We believe in building relationships, and that means constant communication between you (the Franchisee) and us (the Franchisor).

fact #6

You don't have to be a "slick salesman" to enroll members into your program. We believe in giving them a great service and letting the client decide on which program fits their needs and budget the best.

fact #7

The 2 things that will make your 9Round a success are your LOCATION and the TRAINERS running the floor. We will help you find the right location and put the right trainers in place.

fact #8

The 30 minute - no class time concept is genius. Clients love being able to work out whenever-morning, afternoon, or evening.

fact #9

How much money can you make with a 9Round? The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) does not allow us to make any earnings claims. However, you are welcome to call any of our gyms. We are a tight family and most club owners love helping.
