Japan Welcomes Their First 9Round
9Round is excited to announce that their global expansion now includes Japan. The country opened their first 9Round in September. It is located just outside of Tokyo in the city of Sagamiono. If you happen to stay in Japan but do not live near this area, there is no need to worry. There are plans in the works to open a hundred 9Round fitness centers over the next ten years, so, hopefully, in the near future 9Round will be easily accessible to almost everyone in Japan. Shimpei Okumura is in charge of leading 9Round’s development in Japan and could not be more excited to spread 9Round’s fitness philosophy to the people of his home country.
In the article on franchising.com Okumura is quoted as saying, “while Japan has long been a fitness-conscious nation, physical fitness has become an even larger priority among the Japanese. Whether you’re a businessman or a student, I think everyone can and should incorporate fitness into their lives.” He even goes on to stress the superiority of a 9Round workout by saying that there is something empowering about kickboxing, and it is this sense of empowerment that appeals to most people. This unique fitness proposition is a key differentiator that will make us stand out from the competition and will, no doubt, help us transform the fitness market in Japan.
9Round is excited to see their growth spreading to other countries, especially Japan.
