Brant "Owner" AdornatoBrant is the Club Owner and fell in love with 9Round while traveling out of state. Frustrated with boring treadmill work, he ventured next door to his hotel and discovered 9Round which as clearly been a life changing event! Brant has been a fitness fanatic since college where he trained extensively with his triathlete roommates, cycling, swimming and running in Santa Barbara and Ventura. As an avid windsurfer and local sailor, Brant came to appreciate the advantages of cross training for both strength and endurance. Brant's favorite saying and guiding principle is "If you want to positively change your life; Positively change the lives of as many others as you can." Certainly owning a 9Round (or 4) is providing ample opportunity to improve lives!
