About the team
Allison ZolunAllison, “The Striker”, is originally from Southern California and moved to the beautiful state of Colorado 9 years ago with her family. She has been training in Kickboxing, Muay Thai and Krav Maga over the last 6 years and will earn her Black Belt in Muay Thai in May 2018. In 2014, she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and adrenal fatigue and made the choice to treat it holistically. In doing so, that forced her to change her nutrition and exercise regime. In less than a year she lost over 40 pounds, overcame depression and fell in love with fitness in a new way. With her successes she has a great desire to encourage and empower others to take control of their wellness and conquer goals. For the last 2 years she has been an online health & fitness coach, is a Level 1 certified Muay Thai instructor volunteering at her dojo and is currently studying to be a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. Allison is very excited to be a part of the 9Round family and community. She wants to remind us all that “No one is you and that is your power!”

Darryl CohenDarryl “The Catalyst” Cohen is a 9Round Certified Trainer, Assistant Manager at 9R Arvada, and Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach. He's originally from Vernon, Connecticut, and moved to Colorado after graduating from college. He suffered a knee injury playing basketball during his final year of school, which caused him to look for new ways to stay active. Upon moving to Colorado, he was introduced to yoga, Muay Thai, and Krav Maga. He developed such a passion for mixed martial arts, that he began volunteering to help train the children at his dojo. It was through this contribution he realized that personal training was something that he needed to pursue. Darryl loves empowering others, and helping them exceed their fitness goals.

Jilly NorrisJilly, "the Jawbreaker", grew up in Liverpool, England. She's a 9Round Certified Trainer as well as Hiit and Bootcamp group class certified. Jilly was always 'sporty' growing up, but fitness became her passion after losing her Dad to cancer when she was 24. It showed her that we have to look after our body and make the most of life as we only get one shot! She educated herself about healthy eating and began running. Jilly couldn't run a mile when she started out but immediately set a goal of running the London marathon, which she achieved in 2013. Working in advertising at the time, she needed to be efficient while training as she worked long hours, which is when she learned more about HIIT and really maximizing short workouts. Now she keeps her workouts varied and as fun as possible and loves running in sunny Colorado! Jilly chose 9Round because it's fast, fun and she love's hitting those bags! It's so different to any other workout she has done before. Her favorite quote is "The pain you feel today, will be the strength you feel tomorrow."
