  • I always hated exercising, but when my friend asked me to try 9Round, I hesitantly agreed. Thank God I did because I am now a stronger, healthier version of myself, thanks to Sheila, Robin, Seth, and all the other trainers. I need someone to constantly encourage me, to show me exactly what I need to do, and to call me out when I'm not trying my hardest. 9Round trainers do all of this and more. They even knew my name the second time I came in to workout. When I say that this place changed my life, I mean it. I've lost 38 pounds and I can now win arm wrestling contests against all my friends, while rocking a bikini! I have more confidence, better balance and coordination, and more energy. There is no way I could've done this by myself at a conventional gym. Give 9Round a try and you'll be back for me. It truly is addicting.

  • After trying several gyms and exercise programs, I finally found one that I love! As an exercise enthusiast, I was looking for an interval-based program that combines cardio with strength training, which is exactly what 9Round Middletown offers. I love the convenience of being able to drop in any time during hours of operation and not having to wait for scheduled class times. I also love that the trainers at 9Round are experienced and that each time I go, it's like having a personal training session. Each trainer is friendly and each works to help me attain my physical fitness goals. The owner of 9Round Middletown, Sheila Garvy, is extremely professional and maintains a clean work out environment. I'm so happy I joined 9Round!

  • Love 9 Rounds! I have some physical limitations, and ALL of the trainers are good at finding me alternate exercises to do that still give me a great workout! They are all genuinely caring and encouraging!

  • When I joined 9 Round Fitness in Middletown I was a little skeptical of how successful the program really could be since I am a PE/Health teacher. However, I can say after a little under 3 months and 41 pounds lost that this program, when you follow the nutrition plan as well, can lead to wonderful results. I have never been a fan of simply going to a gym and using a treadmill for an hour. However, this program really only takes 30 minutes of working out each day and the results are phenomenal. Additionally, Robin Reynolds, Sheila Garvy, and Seth Nadler all are incredibly competent and also keep everyone smiling and motivated. If you are looking for a 30 minute workout that changes daily and gives the support of a great nutrition plan, I strongly recommend 9 Round Middletown.

  • I love 9Round! Sheila and Robin are great motivators and really encourage everyone to get moving! The workouts are fun and everyone is really friendly! I would suggest 9Round to anyone who is looking to gain muscle and get in shape!

  • Best challenging workout ever! It changes every day and Sheila, Robin, and Seth are fantastic motivators. Don't try this at home in fact home videos will not do what 9 Round does. Thank you for your expertise and motivation especially the last " 30 seconds!" of each round. A great 30 minute workout that keeps you coming back for more.
