  • I’ve been a member for almost 5 years and everyday I appreciate 9Round more. 1. The main advantage here is the trainers. They know you after the first time and they know how to help you get the most from your workout whether it’s helping you adjust it to something you can accomplish or pushing you to get the most out of the workout. 2. It s never boring since the workouts change everyday. 3. The members are friendly and offer encouragement as you go! 4. You can go anytime during hours...no set time you have to be there!

  • No class times. And you don’t need to know all the moves. Trainers are more than happy to demonstrate and help you at each station. That alone takes out so much anxiety you might have at typical gyms. Everyone is on their own journey, from newbies to veterans. It’s a great place to work out.
    - Mar 10, 2019 by J.F.
  • I love that there are no class times and that the trainers greet me by name!

    - Mar 7, 2019 by S.N.
  • 9Round has completely changed my view on working out. I don't dread going to the gym anymore. I used to leave the gym feeling like I didn't really do anything. I wasn't feeling any changes in my body even though I was going almost every day. I never had to speak to anyone else so I felt isolated and afraid to ask for help. 9Round has given me the motivation and accountability that I need to keep going. I feel the changes in my body. I'm getting stronger, losing body fat, and gaining friends. The trainers know me and they know what I can do so they push me to work harder. I'm never alone at 9Round. It's exactly what I needed.
