Nothing else I've ever been a part of has given all these things from one source and because of this 9Round changes lives. That's why 9Round is the best workout facility in Omaha and I'm overjoyed to share it with all of you!

Mike "Sensai " HoughMike "Sensei" Hough Trainer since: June 2016 Favorite round: The drills we do on the double-ended bag (Round 3) form the basis for all the other bag skills. Great trainer because: I've never been satisfied with not knowing the answer to the question "Why?" My education and experience gives me a solid understanding of the reasons for each exercise, and allows me to quickly individualize a workout when necessary (and also know when not to.) Background: I've studied martial arts since 1982, and have been teaching people to punch and kick in some form or another for nearly 25 years. I studied Biomechanics & Motor Learning in graduate school, and hold certifications in strength and conditioning, personal training and nutrition. Outside 9Round: I like to spend time with my wife and 3 kids, Karate, Judo, Olympic Weightlifting, and Magic: the Gathering.
Jen "Flash" Freeman9Round Omaha General Manager Name: Jen “The Flash” Freeman Certified 9Round Trainer since November 2017 Favorite Round: 8-because it’s the round that still challenges me every time. They all do but this one does the most in terms of timing and just getting a rhythm going. What makes me a great trainer?: I listen to what people want to accomplish and I find any way possible to try to get them there....I also am naturally positive and optimistic which is contagious...although maybe a little annoying at times.
Maddie "MMann" MannMaddie Mann Certified 9R trainer since August 2017 Favorite Round: Round 8 because I like learning different ways to hit the bag. Great Trainer: I'm a great trainer because of my positive mentality, high energy, and my ability to modify workouts for members who injured or prohibited from doing certain movements. Background/Unique: I played soccer for 15 years and am currently pursuing my bachelor's degree. I hope to go to medical school and someday become a doctor. I am unique because I'm a homegrown trainer - I learned the 9Round system as a member and connected with it well, so I was offered the position. Hobbies: Playing soccer, spending time with friends and family, painting
Jonah "Swifthands" RobertsJonah Roberts Certified 9R trainer since Nov 2016 Fav Round: Round 8 because once you get the speed bag going in a good rhythm it’s hard to stop much like a good workout routine My talents: I’m a savage, but seriously very good at explaining techniques quickly and effectively considering it is only a 30 min workout I do my best to teach on the fly. My background started in Karate as a 4 year old worked my way up to boxing, then I fell in love with Muay Thai when I was 12. I have won state and national tournaments trained with the best martial artists in the world including former IKF world champion kickboxers and former UFC welterweight champions and WBO lightweight champion. I love to draw realistic graphite portraits and longboard downtown
Rhace "UrMaker" AkersName: Rhace "Ur_Maker" Certified 9Round Trainer since August 2014 Favorite round and why: Round 5. It's the midway point and a very versatile bag that allows you to work all sorts of different angles and drills. Great trainer because; I am dedicated to what I do and I find it easy to connect with people (members) and make them feel comfortable and welcome. I can often help nudge members towards finding their own mental discipline to stay on track and not rely so much on how they feel any given day. Often the workouts you get the most out of are the ones you have to talk yourself into doing. Background/uniqueness: My background is all over the place. I would say what makes me unique as a trainer is that I was once weighed about 100lbs more than I do now. I started at 9Round as a member in 2013. Hobbies: Woodworking and board games are my favorite things to do outside of 9Round.
Ferg "Ferg" FergusonFerg Certified 9Round Trainer since November 2017 From a kickboxing meets fitness standpoint I’m a big fan of Round 5 because of the wrecking ball. Utilizing shin kicks, knees, uppercuts, and any form of cardio is fairly easy to demonstrate, as well as being aggressive enough for a good workout, and well received by members. What Makes me a good trainer? Overall my people skills, passion for helping members with their fitness goals, the experience I have in both fighting and fitness, and lastly my extensive knowledge of the way our bodies work. What do I bring to the table? 2.5 years of licensed Personal training. 10 years in the service industry develops a positive friendly mentality needed to work directly with people. The job itself, 9 years collectively in the fighting world including Taekwondo, Judo, Kickboxing, and Mixed Martial Arts. Accompanied by that, a well-rounded background in parkour, gymnastics, dance, climbing, yoga, and a few other sports here and there.
