  • I can't say enough positive things about 9Round. I've been a dedicated member for about a year and I absolutely LOVE this workout! Everyone should try it! The music is awesome, the trainers are top notch and of course, THE TIME. It's only 30 minutes and you'll definitely know you got a good workout in by the time you leave. Love, love, love this place!

  • The trainers are so friendly and really enjoy helping you. The owner is always cheerful and want you to have a positive workout and experience. I totally enjoy my workouts--its really stretches any aches and pains and makes you stronger, more energy and refreshed! Highly recommend 9rounds--30 minutes is perfect. Celebrating 1st anniversary since opening in June 2018--awesome! Katie and Frank--thanks for the weekly encouragements--need them. :"Lordy, lordy--way, way pass 40!" hahaha

  • 9round is my favorite kickboxing gym! I have been to multiple locations and besides the killer work out the thing they all have in common is how great the trainers are. I love the different stations and the fact that there are different types of bags instead of standing in front of one bag the entire work out like some other gyms in the area. Everyone I know, knows how much I love this gym and I’ve encouraged everyone to try it out!
    - May 9, 2019 by G.D.G.

  • I really enjoy the daily variation of workouts incorporating 9 stations.The combination of high-intensity interval training along with the kickboxing and other forms of boxing makes it very challenging. I also enjoy having the added benefit of one-on-one training in addition to a motivated atmosphere. What's really nice is you don't have to wait on any specific time to have a workout. I really enjoy how a new workout begins every 3 minutes.

  • The trainers are terrific, energetic, and fun! They make working out The best experience.
    - Apr 6, 2019 by T.S.
  • I like that 'my' workout is completely individual, and there is no 'class' that I need to keep up with, or fall behind from. Everything can be modified to my ability and there are trainers right there to challenge me at each station. As long as I'm in my own head, and in my own workout, and know I'm challenging myself to the best of my ability, I'm able to keep my experience very positive, and not hear any of the negatives i tend to say to myself while in other classes (workout formats).
    - Apr 3, 2019 by A.W.
  • There are several things I love about 9round. There’s always trainers there that are personable and willing to help you get the best workout whether that is modifying an exercise or just cheering you on. The workout is always changing and you can go at your own pace. The facility is very clean and always well kept. If you’re one that doesn’t really like the typical gym, you need to give 9round a try!
    - Apr 1, 2019 by A.B.
  • I love the staff, plugged in owners, the care the staff shows, the changing workouts everyday, the music and the instructor led drills. The comradery from new friends is also great.

  • The people and the work out .. the work out is different from all other boxing gyms in the area because it has all different types of bags and mit work. Trainers have always been great in every location I’ve worked out in. Recommend it to everyone who is looking to work out.
    - Feb 8, 2019 by G.D.G.

  • The owners are awesome and the trainers are great. No matter your level of capabilities, they treat you the same and push you as hard as they can. The support, friendship, and camaraderie is phenomenal.
    - Feb 5, 2019 by D.F.
  • They meet and challenge you at your level and adjust workout to fit my needs
    - Feb 5, 2019 by T.P.
  • I love that the trainers are there every step of the way to teach me and help me improve. The workouts are upbeat and steady so you just keep moving until they are over and you feel a great sense of accomplishment when you are finished. The heart rate monitor helps me see small improvements in my cardiac health even when I can't see a physical difference, which is encouraging. The fact that there are no class times is great with my super hectic schedule, I just show up and jump in. The entire staff is fantastic and super motivating and having that support system is vital to continuing to show up and try your best. I am out of shape and they keep me wanting to come back and work towards my goal of being healthy again. I recommend 9Round to anyone looking to start or change up their work outs.
    - Jan 24, 2019 by N.B.
  • The trainers are very patient with new people, like myself. They push you to motivate you, but remind you to pace yourself as well. Everyone is so friendly and encouraging. I love my 9Round!
    - Jan 19, 2019 by B.H.
  • I like that you don’t realize you’re doing cardio.
    - Jan 18, 2019 by S.L.
  • Our owners and coaches know everyone by name, and they encourage us to do our best and are super motivated trainers!
    - Jan 5, 2019 by T.S.
  • I love how engaging the trainers are (Van and Harley are the best!!) and I love that every time I go to the gym I always leave feeling like I have actually had a good workout. Even on days I don't want to push myself I have the trainers and owners there pushing me and helping me find the motivation and drive to continue.

    My first passion is helping people be the best they can be. I served 20 years as a Seabee in the United States Navy; during this time, I was a physical fitness coordinator and a leader for the Fitness Enhancement Program. I enjoy running marathons and Spartan races with my family. Every person has the ability to feel a little better physically and mentally, and that is what 9Round is all about. What I love about 9Round is how we are able to challenge all 9Rounders for 30 minutes out of their day. We want our clients to come in and get a great 30-minute workout leaving them feeling better than when they walked in. See you on the mat!

I am excited that I will be able to help members that have specific goals and watch them grow like the trainers did for me as a member. What I love most about 9Round is that it's a workout that is welcoming to all fitness levels, there are no class times & it is only 30 minutes!!

    I have lived my whole life in Pace FL. I grew up competing in many sports with mediocracy until I began wrestling. With hard work and dedication, I became a better athlete holding a rank of top 5 in the state of Florida. My fitness journey inspired me to take my knowledge and intensity into helping others.
