This past week Shannon Hudson, founder and CEO of 9Round, had the chance to sit down and discuss his childhood, business ventures and new book with GSA Business. The article entitled Sweat and determination started 9Round in Mauldin looks at how Hudson grew up to become the owner of one of the fastest growing fitness franchises in the world. His business philosophy obviously started at a young age and helped fuel his desire to start his one of a kind franchise.

    9Round is a thirty minute kickboxing fitness gym. It boasts a total body workout in only thirty minutes. Hudson notes that he got the idea to start a circuit training gym from the popularity of Curves. He saw how well it worked for them and knew that he could come up with the same process for his kickboxing gyms. He also noted that they had immense growth when they started franchising. As you can see, the idea and the franchising aspect of 9Round took off. Hudson now has 347 locations under his belt and is only looking ahead. 9Round is a global phenomenon with gyms open in the US and seven other countries worldwide. They have recently added an eight country, Japan, to their roster and look forward to expanding into South Africa in the future. 

    This unique business venture for Hudson shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
