  • Great place to workout alone or with family!!!

  • We just joined 3 weeks ago (my children and I), and this is by far the most fun cardio workout I have ever done! Love the trainers, the energy, the one-on-one attention, even the music. I'm addicted! I have always gravitated to yoga, walking, and swimming, and felt that it was time to add cardio to my routine. Thank you, 9 Round!

  • This place is great- Ken, the owner has done a great job in opening up in Evanston. He's one hell of a trainer, too.
