  • Brandon and the hours. Brandon is very good at what he does and takes the time and effort to be involved with your work out. He's on spot. The hours and the way the systems is set up gives you a great workout. I just wish the location was closer to me. Its 45 mins away but the experience and the focus that Brandon has on his business makes you wanna show up and do the work out. Enjoy and will continue.

  • It’s quick and the trainers are very personable. I also like how the trainers push and motivate you through the entire 30 minutes. If feels as though I have support the entire time.

  • Brandon, the owner at the West Ashley location, has so much energy and is so encouraging that I not only feel good physically but emotionally too. This location also offers a lot of one on one combination work which was exactly what I was looking for in the Charleston area. You leave extremely sweaty and tired but also excited for the next class!

  • Having a trainer along for the entire workout is by far what I like best about 9Round. The trainer not only provides instruction on how to properly perform each activity, they also provide accountability (something I have to have!) and keep me motivated to push myself.

  • I like that I don't have to stay hours at a gym to get the same intensity of workout in. 9 Round helps me get my workout in after work while still being able to get home and enjoy the rest of my night.
