Celebrating 10 Years: 2018 9Round World Convention
May 31, 2018
Recently, 9Round Franchise Partners, preferred vendors, and members of the Home Office team gathered in Las Vegas, Nevada to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of 9Round at the 2018 9Round World Convention. With more than 675 locations now open in 13 countries, this fast-growing fitness franchise had a lot of reasons to celebrate. And, while what happens in Vegas usually stays in Vegas, that wasn’t the case for the attendees of 9Round’s World Convention.
9Round Trainers and Owners participated in numerous classroom and training sessions, learning new skills and techniques to bring home to their respective clubs. One such training opportunity was Kickboxology – Powered by 9Round. Developed and instructed by Kickboxing World Champion, Kevin “Hurricane” Hudson, Kickboxology is the gold standard in kickboxing education. Accredited by ACE, AFAA, NASM, and NCSF, Kickboxology covers the science of coaching, client cuing, class design, kickboxing from a holistic approach, how it relates to the bodies systems, and how to safely begin the process of learning kickboxing as a fun fitness routine.
9Round Franchise Partners and Trainers were also educated on marketing and sales techniques to help drive more leads through their doors and, more importantly, convert those leads into devoted, long-term members. Many companies in the franchising world have stopped having conventions, and though the choice may save a few dollars, 9Round sees it as a more than worth-while investment. 9Round’s annual convention gets people excited, boosts morale and team spirit, helps people create better connections, and opens new pathways to learning and professional development that ultimately have a dramatic impact on the business.
9Round uses its World Convention to get everyone on the same page, provide a venue for sharing major announcements and opportunities, and give franchisees extra tools to succeed. At this year’s convention, 9Round unveiled several new products, rolled-out the new 9Round App, new national marketing initiatives, and a new mission statement: Making members STRONGER IN 30 MINUTES, physically and mentally. Providing support and encouragement to members, each on their own personal fitness journey, is the cornerstone of what 9Round was built on, and embodies the spirit of the workout and mission of each and every employee.
9Round enlisted the help of two big-name keynote speakers for this 10th anniversary celebration. Mel Robbins, author of The 5 Second Rule, gave an inspiring talk about conquering fears and insecurities and turning perceived weaknesses into success. Co-Founder and President of Pal's Business Excellence Institute, David McClaskey, took to the stage, alongside 9Round Founder, Shannon Hudson, for a presentation about "Operating at 100% Excellence." McClaskey has been an invaluable resource in helping to improve operations across all of 9Round.
