  • The community is incredibly positive! The trainers and other 9rounders are always very encouraging. I'm not a very fit person and I've always been self-conscious at gyms. 9round is the FIRST gym I've very gone to where I feel totally comfortable. It allows me to push myself and try harder because I'm not worries about other people judging me or making comments. There was once instance where two friends were teasing each other (I rest of course) while working out. The trainer Matt politely told them that negativity was not allowed here. I don't think he knows what an impact that had on me. Those two girls were clearly very fit and physically capable, and them teasing each other made me reflect on how I'm not even close to their level, and I started my own negative self-talk in my head. The fact that Matt kindly told them to be positive made me feel so safe in that space. Clearly the two friends were having fun with each other and just being silly, but thanks to Matt my self-conscious was shut down and I was able to do a good workout without worrying about how good or bad I was relative to anyone else. I cannot thank the 9round team enough for this community they've built, and I would happily recommend this establishment to everyone I meet that wants to better their health.

  • I really enjoy the fast pace workout style. Each workout is different every time I visit 9Round. I 10/10 would recommend friends, family, and co-workers to join this gym! All trainers have positive and uplifting attitudes!

  • I am getting stronger, which is super exciting. I have had five knee surgeries, so I wasn't sure if I could even do this workout. It has been exhilarating ! And freeing! The trainers help me adapt my workout (for example, round kicks don't work for me), so I do front kicks and other things. And I sweat and sweat and I love it. I am so thankful for this workout!!
    - May 6, 2018 by April Leach

  • They mix it up and make me work out!

  • I really like that the staff know my name. That's really cool, I've been part of several gyms and they may speak when you sign-in but they've never taken the time to actually learn my name. I love that the workouts are only 30 minutes and you can pretty much come at any time and jump right in. I also love the variety of workouts, rarely if ever have we done the same exact routine twice and I've been a member sine September 2016.

  • The trainers really work with you. Because I am older and have a few ailments the trainers let me work at "my" best pace. I may not be able to move as fast as some of the other members, the trainers still encourage me to never give up. I appreciate the support both physically and mentally. I love 9 rounds.
    - Apr 4, 2018 by Michelle Sydnor

  • 9Round has given me confidence, strength and stamina. The trainers are awesome and very helpful. I'm on a journey to a better me and I'm confident 9ROUND will help me get there and beyond
    - Apr 2, 2018 by Stacy Mattingly
  • Hands-down: the trainers!! If it weren’t for them, i wouldn’t have the motivation to go in! I wouldn’t push myself, I’d still be doing what i was doing and getting no results. They make me want to get better. They make me want to learn new skills and try new moves, they show me how and help me work up to harder things. They inspire me to grab heavier weights, to go faster, and to just plain stick with it. Dede Kelley is my hero and has personally helped me lose almost 20 pounds, countless inches, and get out of plus size clothing. She’s inspired me to win the fall fitness challenge, and I’m entered to win the spring challenge. I have about 30 more pounds to lose and i have no doubt that 9round will get me there.

  • 9Round provides an excellent workout and friendly enviroment without the extreme seriousness or even cult-like vibe of other organizations. The staff at my location are incredibly friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Kickboxing helps take the day's stress away, keeps me fit, and best of all doesn't feel like a chore!
