About the team
Hemal "HAMMER" PatelHemal "Hammer" Patel started his professional career off as an accountant. He has an incredible work ethic and he desired an opportunity to become healthier and give back to the community. After owning and operating multiple successful businesses he turned his attention to the health and wellness industry. After one visit to a 9Round gym, he was thrilled and completely sold. He himself lost 22lbs after joining 9Round and becoming a member. He always says, "If I can do it, YOU can do it!" In college "Hammer" played soccer and was the captain of his team. Coupled with his strong desire to give back to the community and create jobs, he has opened his three 9Round locations right in DFW (Mockingbird, Preston Hollow, Fort Worth TCU) and looking to open in Uptown in the near future. Hammer loves for the atmosphere to be fun and energetic! You will not be disappointed whenever you come to visit! Why not come today?
