Meet the new owner

Mamode Ufomata earned his BSc from the University of Kentucky, and he earned an MBA from Indiana University, Kelley School of Business. His professional background is in Aerospace and Consulting, but he has always been a big believer in sports and fitness. In fact, he grew up playing several sports including football, basketball and soccer. As he got older, he had a bout with weight gain, so he decided he had to rededicate himself to fitness and sports. 30 pounds lighter and many 3Ks later, Mamode is excited about the challenge of owning a 9Round, and to help celebrate their grand opening and get the word out, Mamode is offering a some super grand opening specials. You can get one month free and get some great discounts on 9Round merchandise.


Why 9Round

Mamode chose 9Round because he loved the product and business model. The product is fitness, which means 9Round Springfield is providing their customers with an avenue to help improve their health and live a more fulfilling life. Our fitness center offers each client a 30 minute kickboxing fitness program with no class times. We change our workouts daily to keep them fun and keep you from becoming bored with doing the same thing day after day. Every member also has access to a personal trainer and a nutrition plan at no extra cost. So, you get a fun and fast paced fitness routine that can easily fit into your schedule and comes with a lot of extras to help you achieve your fitness goals at no extra cost. Mamode also appreciated that the 9Round business plan was pretty straight forward. There are basically two main costs, trainer salaries and the rent for your location. The franchise fees are fixed, so you know what you owe each month. There are no surprise costs at the end of the day. Mamode was happy that it was not like most other franchise fees that are a percent of sales, which can change month by month.


Mamode is excited to be opening his first 9Round in December and hopes that the community will embrace the fitness routine as he had. His My long term plan is to open several locations in the DC Metro Area hopefully over a 3 year time frame. He would like to see each of his stores to have upwards of 400 members within 12 months of opening. If you would like to experience you first trial workout for free feel free to stop by our location.
