  • Best gym in Columbia Sc the owners are amazing and they truly do care . I've been going since they've been open and it's a good hard 30 min work out and boxing is so much fun triggers all kinds of muscles . First class is free so go u will be hooked right after and will sign up right away .

  • Everything; 9Round Forest Drive isn't just a workout it's more of an experience coupled with a workout. It's a pleasure to experience a gym experience that's both challenging and openly inviting with trainers that set a standard of success for your physical growth. 9Round Forest Drive is the place to be.

  • I greatly appreciate the interaction and closeness between all members and the trainers. My 9Round (Forest Drive/Columbia, SC) is a staple in my life and to miss a day of working out places my entire day in disarray. The trainers in my opinion are stellar in all facets of physical activities and exude exquisite customer service. I couldn't see myself attending another gym at the moment and encountering anything less than the 9Round experience.

  • The trainers! I feel like I have the best trainers ever when I'm at 9Round. I would really recommend it if your looking for that one on one, and moving at your pace to try it out.

  • I enjoy the ability to work out at your own pace. The workouts are intense and very effective but what I like best is the friendly trainers who make working out enjoyable and push you along the way!

  • Personalized workouts. Smaller group than a regular gym. One on one trainer availability. Flexibility and convenience

  • I love my home 9 Round. The workouts are challenging and times are so convenient. The one on one attention I receive from my trainers HP and RIP is excellent. I feel the family atmosphere motivates me to work harder and keep coming back.
