Entrepreneur Magazine’s listing of 9Round as one of the top 500 franchises points the way to success for entrepreneurs who are eager to break into the fitness industry with their own franchise.

9Round, a kickboxing fitness program that provides a unique workout experience that takes just 30 minutes, has been named one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s top 500 franchises for 2013.

With 38 locations, 36 of which are franchises and two of which are company-owned, 9Round blends boxing and kickboxing with cardiovascular and circuit training that members quickly complete under the guidance of an expert trainer. Entrepreneur Magazine ranked 9Round 443rd in its list of the top 500 franchises.

The fitness company was founded in 2007 and began franchising in 2009. “We are proud that Entrepreneur Magazine has recognized 9Round as one of the top 500 franchises,” said 9Round founder and CEO Shannon “The Cannon” Hudson. “As one of the nation’s fastest growing fitness franchises in the United States, we are honored that our program is receiving such critical validation, and we expect that this will help us continue to expand our presence as we do our part to get America fit and healthy.”

Using dumbbells, heavy bags, medicine balls and kettle balls, participants do their workouts in a proprietary system using nine workout stations. Franchisees are attracted to 9Round because of the low startup costs and the fact that the business can be run with just one or two employees.
