See Your Results as You Work Out

In real time, the 9ROUND PULSE in-club display shows your effort level, heart rate, calories burned, and PULSE Points earned during your workout. Color-coded heart rate zones make it easy to see your effort level at a glance.

9Round results monitor

How It Works

  • You wear your 9ROUND PULSE belt during your workout.
  • As you work out, the device tracks how hard you’re working and displays your effort rating, your heart rate and calories burned on a monitor inside the 9Round club.
  • You can easily see if you’re in your optimal fat burning zone and adjust your effort up or down as needed.
  • View your results and progress any time from the app or your online account. Your results are also emailed to you after each workout.

Member Reviews

  • 9Round blows all gyms out of the water! Only 30 minutes...personal trainer included...leaving covered in sweat. Honestly best choice since moving to the area. I love every workout, great mix of cardio and strength training. I have seen much more muscle tone and love the nutrition program

  • I decided to join 9round to help me get back into the working out mode. They have not disappointed me yet ! I look forward to coming into the atmosphere where they personally know you and help you push you to the limits. No matter if it is a hard day or a light day, I am always coming out of 9round dripping sweat and feeling like I had a great workout. They really helped me get back into working out and becoming healthy again. The best thing is it only takes 30 minutes of your day!

  • This is by far the best gym I have joined. All of the trainers are great they make sure you know exactly what workout you will be doing and they will help you on your form to ensure you get the best workout as possible without injury. This is the first gym I am actually excited to go to. The workouts always change so it does not get boring. It is also the best place to get a full body workout in such a short 30 minutes which is best for me and my schedule. I would highly recommend this gym to anyone.

  • I absolutely love coming to 9round!! From the few months I have been coming here, I have seen a significant difference in the muscle in my legs and upper body. The staff here are awesome and they make the experience THAT much more enjoyable. Recommend this to anyone willing to get more active! SO glad I became a member here!!

  • I have been a member of 9Round since August 2015 and I can say that it has been the best decision I've ever made! I love working out there since they are different workouts every day! The trainers are super nice and the environment as well!!! I highly recommend everyone who wants to have fun while working out for JUST half an hour and feeling GREAT!

  • I love 9round! I joined a few weeks ago and I couldn't be happier! I love the flexibility it gives me to work out on my schedule filled with fun and different work outs! It's also only 30 mins of intense and awesome workouts. I already feel my body getting super tight!
