See Your Results as You Work Out
In real time, the 9ROUND PULSE™ in-club display shows your effort level, heart rate, calories burned, and PULSE Points earned during your workout. Color-coded heart rate zones make it easy to see your effort level at a glance.
How It Works
- You wear your 9ROUND PULSE™ belt during your workout.
- As you work out, the device tracks how hard you’re working and displays your effort rating, your heart rate and calories burned on a monitor inside the 9Round club.
- You can easily see if you’re in your optimal fat burning zone and adjust your effort up or down as needed.
- View your results and progress any time from the app or your online account. Your results are also emailed to you after each workout.
STAY IN THE FAT BURNING ZONE
Benefits of 9Round Pulse™
Your heart rate is the ideal metric that determines how much effort it takes to burn fat and improve your cardio. Heart rate tracking helps you maximize the results you get from every 30-minute 9Round workout.
Adapts to Your Fitness Level
The more physically fit you are, the more effort it takes to get your heart rate up. But all you have to do is keep your heart rate in the optimal heart rate zone, and you’ll continue to get results.
Your real-time heart rate and color-coded heart rate zones continuously show you whether you’re getting the most from your workout. Your results summary is emailed to you after each workout.
Live heart rate tracking motivates you to put in the necessary effort because you have a specific target to shoot for.
Compete against yourself or others with the live in-club display.
Points Make it Simple
You accumulate pulse points for every minute you spend in each heart rate training zone. The harder you work, the more points you accumulate.
I have really enjoyed this club. I've been a member for 6 months and I never leave unsatisfied. They greet you with a smile and send you off with one. Try it for a few weeks and you will feel the difference in your strength, flexibility, and cardio ability.
9Round Ballantyne is always pushing me to be the best I can be, keeping me accountable. I have been a member for a little over 2 years and am glad that I joined. Mark and Suzi run a top notch gym and provide the proper motivation to keep you moving. All the staff (past and present) are great. All you need to do is give it a chance and you will be hooked. There is a different workout daily and it is always challenging.
Without a doubt, the best way to spend 30 mins....you get an incredible workout, personal trainer input, clean facility and the chance to punch out your frustrations....what else could you want??? I have seen amazing changes in my strength, body tone and endurance!!! And for a 57 year old lady to be able to do jabs, hooks, kicks and other punches is such a blast!!! Thanks 9Round Charlotte!!!
My husband, four kids, and I have been members of 9R for years. It is the ONLY place in Charlotte where we can get in and get out in 30 minutes, totally dripping with sweat, and feel like we've worked hard!! We can workout on demand, which is huge with our busy schedule. All four of our children play competitive sports and 9R is a great complement to their strength training regimen. The energy at 9R is awesome and the staff is even better, pushing you to be the best! Suzi and Mark are truly wonderful people. Couldn't ask for a better training facility! We LOVE 9R Charlotte!!!!
Lifting weights has always been my main form of exercise and a real passion in my life. But as a lifter, you want always want to bulk, but stay lean, you got to do cardio. Well, I hate running and newer research is showing that High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is much more effective at losing fat and maintaining muscle than traditional long distance cardio. So I joined 9Round and have never looked back! I have actually gotten significantly stronger in my lifting, as well as much more defined because of the 9Round training, and I find I can push myself a lot further when lifting now because I am so used to pushing myself at 9Round beyond where I think I can go. 9Round is definitely the best program out there for everyone to people just looking to get in shape to experienced lifters who are looking to take things to the next level. Plus, you get to punch stuff! Mark, Suzi, and the crew are all amazing! Literally stop what you are doing right now and go to this gym. Right now.
Fitness has never been as fun, motivating, and manageable as 9Round has been for me. I get in, get my butt kicked, and get out according to my schedule. I don't have to worry about missing a specific class or day which is incentive enough for me but the staff at 9round Ballantyne make it truly motivating. They are all AMAZING. I feel supported and challenged to improve my endurance, form, strength or whatever they throw my way.
