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!
