Taylor "T-Up Tay" LacombeTaylor lives in Medina and graduated from Heritage Academy in 2015. She enrolled as a freshman at The University of North Dakota, but is currently exploring transfer options and a new course of study. A Level I Cross Fit Certified Trainer, Taylor enjoys the different people that walk through the 9Round doors who all share one common goal: to become more physically fit. Whether the member is an "average" person or a star athlete, Taylor wants to improve their level of physical fitness and quality of life. Her professional goals are to become a sought-after personal trainer - working alongside NFL or NBA players - and open her own gym.
Austin "RezDog" Zahn-HessTRAINER - Austin was an enthusiastic 9Round member for four years and a trained martial artist. Austin lives in Maple Grove, graduated from Champlin Park High School and is currently enrolled in Hennepin Technical College. When asked what round he likes most at 9Round, the answer came easily - Round 8, the speed bag, where he hit it well over a thousand times in three minutes the other day, Austin's personal goal is to build strength and speed and become the best martial artist he can be.
Micah "Magic Micah" OsbandWith an Associates Degree in Applied Science from Portland Community College and a B.A. in English with a minor in film, Micah originally wanted to teach film to community college students. But in 2008 he left the country seeking new opportunities and discovered one of his passions - teaching english. He spent the year earning his TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) - traveling to South Korea, Taiwan, Shanghai and Saudi Arabia; eventually earning his Masters in Education with a focus on curriculum Design. All the while Micah was teaching english he was also an athlete. He has a black belt in kickboxing through WPKA and has been training for over 10 years as a Muay Thai, boxing and kickboxing fighter with an overall record of 9-3-1. After moving home to Minnesota he immersed himself in the fitness world and found his way to 9Round. He enjoys sharing his love and knowledge of the combat sports with our members and we are thrilled to have him as a trainer!
Kelly "Razor Sharp" AhrensKelly has been a 9Round member for five months and is now a part of our training staff! She is wicked on the heavy bag, and has lazer-sharp focus when she works out. Her favorite round is Round 2 where she enjoys the three minutes she gets to lift weights. What she likes most about 9Round is how it gives her a mentally and physically challenging workout in only 30 minutes. A Medina resident, Kelly graduated from Prior Lake High School. She then attended Augsburg University where she earned a B.A. in Business Management, graduating Summa Cum Laude. Kelly has been married for three years and is the proud mom of Eros, their golden retriever. Kelly's long term goal is to continue to advance her career in business leadership - and be a kick butt 9Round trainer, of course!
