  • Variety in exercises. Flexibility in schedule to go when best works for my schedule. As skills advance and strength increases there is a level of confidence and feeling of safety that develops. HIT workouts at their best.

  • I needed something like this growing up and during my time in the Military. I love the 30m high intensity workout on your timeline. It's a fast and effective use of time for all fitness levels that allows you knock out your workout and relieve any stress or aggression. The coaches are interactive and motivating and will always keep you on your toes when they pull you out to teach you something new. Three Rings.

    Kassandra "Porcupine" Procopio
    Fun Fact: Baby porcupines are called porcupettes! When I was a porcupette my parents made sure to keep my life active and fun! I was born and raised in Montana so I was never too far from a mountain to hike or too far from a river to kayak down. I was also a gymnast for 6 years and a cheerleader for another 6 years. I followed my cheer career here to Kansas to cheer as a K-state cheerleader my freshman year. I am now currently in KravMaga and getting my certification to teach yoga at the K-state Rec. Center. I have always had a passion for fitness because it has made such a difference and truly enhanced my life. Now I am able to share that passion and help others achieve their fitness goals through 9Round! Closing fun fact: Porcupines are also nocturnal and forage for their food at night and so do I!

    Adam "Peoples Champ" Rogers
    If you’re from Manhattan and knew Adam growing up, you probably wouldn’t say health and fitness was the first thing coming to mind about him. Steadily gaining weight through the years, at 20 years old, Adam weighed his heaviest ever tipping the scales at nearly 265 lbs. It was during this time though while attending Kansas State University, that he finally learned the necessary skills to take the reigns and transform his life. The degree in Kinesiology and Public Health he earned might have had something to do with that. From the beginning of his Sophomore year up unto graduation, Adam lost 70 lbs. and has never looked back. Once graduated - Kansas City was his next stop where a budding career in the field of health and fitness would hopefully take off. Having instructed over 1,000 hours of group fitness while in Kansas City — Adam refined his training styles teaching classes like boxing, bootcamp, Body Pump, yoga, HIIT, spin- cycling, and corrective exercise. He also holds a certification in The BioMechanics Method: Exercise Solutions for Chronic Pain. A major passion of Adam’s is working with clients limited by chronic pain and disability. You’ll rarely catch him without a smile on his face and nothing brings out that smile more than training with you at 9Round! :D

This desire to become seriously strong physically came from the mental frustration of loosing nearly all her muscle mass within her left leg. Raina thrives off high intensity, BURPEES, and pushing people past what they felt their limitations were because she’s been in their shoes! Her fighter name, “Make It Rain” comes from when she brings the energy and power into the gym! Her favorite motivational quote is, “Hate it now, Love it Later.”
