  • Working out at 9Round is a daily part of my routine and it has been fun! I have lost weight, strengthened my core, and built muscle. The trainers motivate and encourage you along the way. It’s the best decision I have made to improve my physical condition.

I recently lost some weight (via weight loss program) and the 9Round workout helps me maintain the healthy weight.

  • I love everything about 9Round!!!
    - October 06, 2018 by Trina Walkama
  • I've been with 9Round for over 1-1/2 years and this is the best! I love the workouts as they are very challenging and different each day. The trainers are motivating, encouraging, and affirming. They know our individual strengths and weaknesses and bring out the best in us. They care about you and take time to explain the routine if you are not understanding it. Take it from someone who was a workout novice and dreaded going to the gym. Now working out is part of my everyday routine. The benefits have been tremendous including getting close to my ideal weight, strengthening my core and back, and being in the best shape of my life.
    - October 05, 2018 by Annie Wong

Also, that there aren't any class times. It's so convenient it makes it hard to come up with excuses to miss a workout, which is a good thing!

  • Amazing. 9 rounds has become a daily routine for me. One that I look forward to every day. The professionalism, kindness and energy I receive every time I work out is incredible. It has changed me in so many positive ways. Just love it. My grade would actually be 12.5 or (110%) Thank you to Marc, I applaud you and your entire staff for making a workout so much fun and rewarding. The Italian Stallion.

    - April 25, 2018 by Douglas Alexander
  • I love that it's only 30 minutes -- it won't really change the course of your evening if you choose to go to the gym because it doesn't take that much time. I also LOVE the hands-on trainers. Even though they're so busy with managing everyone's workouts, I still feel like I'm getting a personal trainer. Thank you, trainers!!!!

I also have two specializations through NASM; Performance Enhancement Specialist and Corrective Exercise Specialist. I have been working with Marc since 2014 beginning at a big box gym, then Marc's personal training studio (CityFit), and now 9Round! The community that we have been able to build with 9Round providing the platform to be able to work with more people than we were during our CityFit days has been incredible. Getting to know each member personally and figuring out how to motivate and push them to reach their health and fitness goals is a challenge I happily take on! My passion for training is rooted in strength training and I love being able to incorporate kickboxing and strength training in one workout at 9Round.
