  • Every workout is different, but always challenging and fun. The trainers also ramp up your one on one's if you've been a member longer, so it's just always a bit more intense.

  • I like that for the 30 minutes I am there I definitely feel like a solid work out for the day has been done! I can't get over how many calories I burn in those 30 minutes. I also like that is is open really early in the morning.

  • I like that the trainers know you and challenge you individually based on your fitness level. I love that I can go anytime I want without signing up for a specific class.

  • I love 9Round. It's such a great workout and has helped me so much. The best 30 min workout I have ever had. I was a Planet Fitness person for years and did not get results like the results I have got from 9Round. I had 4 friends sign up because they saw and heard the great time I have there . Mason Needles is the bomb ..he is the best instructor and he motivates me. 9Round is the best.

  • I love that I've been able to burn almost 500 calories in 30 minutes. Its quick but not easy. I used to spend hours at the gym trying to get done what I now get done in much less. Its fast, it's fun, it's high energy, and the trainers are great. I especially love doing pad work now.

  • Masen <span class="nick-name">"Non-Stop"</span> Needles
    Masen "Non-Stop" Needles
    I have been involved with 9Round since I was hired as the Manager at the 27th and Old Cheney location in April of 2016. I am a native of Wilber, Ne, but have always been around the Lincoln area. I attended Doane College where I received my bachelor’s degree in Fitness Management. While at Doane, I was a member of the Tigers track and field team all 4 years. I have been involved in athletics my entire life, participating in basketball, football, baseball, and track and field while in high school at Wilber-Clatonia. Health and fitness has always been a priority of mine, but it didn’t become a passion of mine until my senior year of college when I decided to become a Certified Personal Trainer. Through my experience of helping people reach their health and fitness goals, I have become addicted to coaching, mentoring, and preparing people through their own transformations. Whether the goal is weight-loss, gaining lean muscle, or getting into a habit of exercising on a regular basis, the physical and mental strength gained during the process has made my career choice very rewarding. Each person has a different story, and assisting them to get on the right track through exercise has made my life a joy. As the old cliché says, “Do something you love and you’ll never work a day of your life.” That statement couldn’t be more true for me. When I’m not “working,” I enjoy spending time with my fiancé, Brandy, and my baby girl, Bentley, as well as other close friends and family. Traveling, fishing, attending sporting events, and enjoying a nice cheat meal are also on my go-to list when possible. My favorite round is #8. In my opinion, the speed bag is a mind game. Most members struggle (as I did) when they first try it, but once you get the rhythm, it’s so much fun! Once you get it mastered, you can add different exercises to the routine (burpees, squat jumps, etc.) to keep your heart rate elevated, which is great! I chose 9Round Fitness because I really appreciated the concept. Get a killer full-body workout in only 30 minutes?!? No way! But, once I gave a workout a try for myself, I was hooked! Working every muscle in your body, doing different exercises each and every day, on YOUR OWN WATCH (no class times rock!) is a recipe for success that I will always be passionate about. Bottom line for an effective workout program – Do you see results? The answer with 9Round is always YES!! In addition, I love building relationships with our members and having them know that our staff can be trusted and will do everything we can to help them reach their goals!
