  • The support you get from all the trainers, and how fast and affective it is, and how much fun I have.
    - Jul 31, 2019 by Darah Nunez
  • Trainers are always friendly and want to give you the best workout possible. The workouts change daily so you are always using different muscle groups. This also decreases boredom! The absolute best part about 9 Round is that it’s only 30 minutes of your day and no class times! I think 9 Round should put together a boot camp of some sort in the future!

  • It’s different every day. Always trainers on hand to push you to work your hardest.
    - Jul 18, 2019 by J.W.

    - Jul 9, 2019 by Brent Wieck
  • The trainers always help me get a good workout. Everyone is friendly and happy to help people. I can only come a couple times a week and I feel like I get the best of my time.

    - Jun 30, 2019 by A.F.
  • I have been there lil over a month. I like the flexibility and also the availability of multiple sites especially on Saturdays. All the trainers I have seen have been professional.
    - Jun 27, 2019 by Scott Stubler
  • My favorite parts of 9Round are the boxing, kick boxing, ever changing workouts and always having a trainer available to help.
    - Jun 25, 2019 by Scott Alessi
  • I love how quick and convenient it is to get a good workout in.
    - Jun 9, 2019 by S.D.
  • What’s not to like about 9Round? I like that there are no class times. I like that a trainer is always there. I like that it’s only 30 minutes- who doesn’t have 30 minutes? I like that the trainers actually get to know you and push you. I like that the other members are supportive. I like that the workout is different every day. The only thing I don’t like is burpees! (Just kidding.. sort of)
    - Jun 8, 2019 by Jessica Wheeler
  • The workouts are different every day and the variety keeps it interesting. The trainers are always helpful and pushing us to get better each workout.
    - May 28, 2019 by S.M.
  • It keeps me motivated to keep coming back because I love the trainers, varied workouts, results I am getting, location, no “start times,” and that it gives me a great stress reliever! It is the best money I’ve ever spent on a fitness program/gym!
    - May 16, 2019 by Kimberleigh Gildehaus
  • The ease of a 30 minute workout that kicks your booty like no other. On site trainers that are there to help but do not swarm or smother you. They are alert and aware of when you need help but don’t hover. Most of all I love hitting and kicking the bags until I feel like I can no longer hit or kick. GREAT stress relief with the added bonus of being a workout. Never having any two workouts be the same...great for muscle memory. Last, I love the loud music. It gets/helps keep me motivated.
    - May 9, 2019 by Abby Redmon
  • The trainers are awesome!! Billie knows his people and really works hard to help them meet their personal goals! Sam is great too! He works hard for the clients and has a great personality! I like that I can come anytime and always get a great workout.
    - May 9, 2019 by D.B.
  • Good workout and convenient that I can start at anytime.
    - May 3, 2019 by C.D.
  • Always a good challenge. Even after multiple months I can still get a unique workout and really feel it the next day too. As long as you try, you will get more than you bargained for.
    - May 2, 2019 by R.F.
  • The trainers! They are friendly, they get to know you and your limits, and they push you to test those limits and improve every time!

    - Apr 26, 2019 by Linda Williams
  • Workouts are always different. Trainers are great!
    - Apr 17, 2019 by J.W.
  • There is no established class time. Due to my constantly changing schedule, I don’t have to worry about being late or missing the first 5 or 15 minutes of a scheduled workout because a project at work went long. 9Round is ready to go when I am. I can walk in a 6:38pm and it’s the same energetic greeting, “YOU READY NEXT ROUND?!” With just a nod, it’s game on. Plus, if I ever have a “Case of the Monday’s” the punching bag is a great stress reliever for me.
    - Apr 11, 2019 by R.M.
  • I like that I have a different workout every time I go.
    - Apr 8, 2019 by B.W.

  • I go to the new mark location in KCMO the owner is mellissa and she is very kind and encouraging. The workouts for me are challenging but fun and the trainers accommodate certain workouts if they see you can’t do it. I feel like going to this place changed my life it makes me feel more confident and having a meal plan is a plus.If you are ready for a lifestyle change this is the place for you!

    - Feb 27, 2019 by S.M.
  • I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the trainers and that there are NO class times—especially because I tend to run late while juggling kids, working, volunteering, etc!!! I love the way the workout tones my body and motivates me to come back — I’m going 4-5 days and week after being a member for just under two months and that’s the most I’ve worked out in a long time! I recommend 9Round CONSTANTLY!
