  • I love this place, it is not such a boring and conventional gym, I enjoy to go and practice everyday and The trainers are nice and friendly people. I am so happy to be part of this gym.

  • Dana Gerdes Wojtan >Linda King Mayer January 3 at 1:04pm · Northbrook, IL · In the spirit of the New Year, I am focusing on things for which I am grateful. I am grateful for 9Round Northbrook. Linda King Mayer and Abby Kurz are co-creating an environment for our community to help us get and stay healthy, the very thing we wish for all of the people of which we care. I have a place I can go and feel better being there. I do not necessarily LOVE working out. I do LOVE feeling strong though and 9Round Northbrook helps me achieve that feeling. And I know it's all connected if I feel strong in my body it carries over to my mind and my spirit. Thank you 9Round you are making a difference in my life. — feeling blessed.

  • What an amazing place! I had been searching desperately for a place that was “home” and this is it. After a spine surgery and a two year hiatus from major exercise, I was deconditioned and it certainly showed. The owners were awesome. Abby motivated me from our first conversation and Linda’s bright smile is always contagious. I do want to give exemplary comments to the young man David. He offered me an option to run around the building during our 30 second “active rest”. I had been unable, and maybe unwilling, to run for 2 years. I took him up on the offer and what he doesn’t realize is that I noticed that he slowed down each time I did. I noticed that he kept offering at each interval, trying to motivate me. This kind of spirit is what moved me to achieve a second degree black belt in Karate/Kenpo Jitsu. I now run 3 miles at least 4 days a week. If you want inspired, if you want to feel like you can do this…then you have found your home.

  • 9 Rounds is a fantastic workout! This is for EVERYONE! No matter if you just ran a marathon or just been doing nothing. I love that you get so much personal training throughout the workout. It incorporates core, strength, aerobic and BOXING! I am sure I look crazy punching that boxing bag, but it is FUN and something that I have never done!!! It is very invigorating and a great way to spend a 1/2 hour of your day.

  • The first session I attended brought in all ages, a dad and his son and 4 friends, a teacher finishing up her day, a plus 50 woman and a 26 year old male...fun, work and more...as one of the 13 year olds said," I come here to get exercise and look buff!" So comedy, too!

  • 30 minutes. 9 rounds. Unlimited benefits for your health and body! I'm a new fan to 9 round and I LOVE it. I haven't been this pushed in a long time. I come out from every workout sweating and completely red. After running for over 10 years, I have to say I've never been this worked...and I've even ran a marathon! After having a baby 7 months ago, I found it was becoming increasingly hard to shed the baby weight. Despite my weekly runs, it wasn't coming off. Enter 9 round. I've only been to a few sessions, but I'm already feeling better and I have more energy. The trainer, Abby, really pushes you along and shows you how to do it right. From breathing to stance to technique, you get a well-rounded workout. Bonus - every day is a different routine; a different muscle to awaken and improve. Bonus, bonus - it's only 30 minutes!! Perfect for my limited me time. Bonus, bonus, bonus - the ladies who own this location really make you feel welcomed. They know you by name. It doesn't matter what your fitness level is either. The routines vary to your level. This is just the kick-start I need, no pun intended. My body is thanking me, sore, but thanking me. :)
