Great prices, friendly trainers and quick, effective workouts- Nov 28, 2019 by Caroline Johnson
The convenience is key! Being able to get a meaningful and fun work out in 30 minutes is essential for me. I also like the feel of having a trainer in the room but not focusing on your every move. It ... provides great motivation without pressure. I grew up playing sports and had a hard time transitioning into working out just to stay healthy but I’m so glad I chose to try out 9 round.

Great trainers that really make me feel welcome and push me!- Oct 2, 2019 by A.P.
Awesome gym and coaches!!- Jun 14, 2019 by T.M.
9Rounds is the best workout ever! It’s the only thing I enjoy and stick to and have seen an amazing transformation. Worth every cent and since I travel for work I can always get my workout in at one ... of the locations More- Jun 13, 2019 by Maria Hayden
9Round is the perfect workout for any fitness level. The involvement of the trainers alongside the variety in each round's workout is the perfect combination to your fitness needs. I enjoy working out... in the group setting, but also having my individual workout time at each round. The instructors are always encouraging and pushing me to go harder than the last time. I always leave 9Round feeling amazing both mentally and physically. More- Sep 12, 2018 by Natasha Mccaleb
The “personal trainer” style workout is really what I’ve needed. I can’t stand the regular gym. I don’t have the self discipline or even workout experience to put my own workout together. With Round 9... , I just have to show up and that’s easy!!! More- Sep 9, 2018 by Beth Mckern
The workouts change everyday, the trainers are great, it’s competitive, the pad work, and the results (which have been tremendous).- Aug 29, 2018 by L.Z.
Trainers and workouts - Always new, never boring. I appreciate the hands on approach the management takes to make sure we get the best workout possible. They are also fun people to talk to and hango... ut with. More- Jul 19, 2018 by P.B.
I have already been singing your praises. I love that there is a personal trainer there to show what you do at each station and they are there consistanly encouraging you. I LOVE that it is a monthl... y NON CONTRACT organization. I LOVE that it is only about 30 minutes, I get bored beyond that point. The heart monitor is better than I ever imagined and worth the extra money. When I do not think I am giving it my all physically, I see the yellow heart and know that I am ok at the level I am .. I leave feeling refreshed and sore.. The email encourging me to come back when I was gone a week, was the extra push I needed. I want to continue making myself go for so many reasons: anxiety, weight loss. My 13 yr old daughter and I take together to challenge each other and keep us going.. More- Jul 7, 2018 by Sherry Moore
I absolutely love everything there. The workouts are awesome and I've never been in better shape. The trainers really pay attention and help with form and pushing you to do better.- Jun 30, 2018 by Cidney Adams
I'm a mom of three, ages 1-4. So, quick and effective is exactly what I need, and exactly what 9Round provides. Plus, Forrest and Dom are the best trainers and extremely patient, especially when I ha... ve my mini-me's with me (not to say the others aren't - I just don't see them as often). More- May 28, 2018 by L.Z.
I love the fact that the entire staff knows my name. Every time I walk in to the gym, I know I will be greeted and that I am going to have a awesome workout. I have NEVER left 9Rounds feeling disappoi... nted. More- Apr 13, 2018 by Chase Hodge
Not only are the trainers very helpful and friendly, but the environment is completely judgement free. The people there are from all walks of life and no one is worried about what you're doing. If any... thing, they're inspiring. More- Mar 30, 2018 by Cidney Adams
I love how the entire experience is so different from a typical workout. You do something different every time, and the trainers really motivate you to do your best.- Mar 9, 2018 by C.B.
Everyone is super friendly & the workout goes by quickly . I feel like I have accomplished so much in those fun 30 minutes .- Mar 7, 2018 by K.R.
Even when I am dragging a little, you open that door and the music hits you and the trainers say hello and I am ready to hit it!!!!!- Mar 6, 2018 by L.L.S.
It’s fun and fast way to exercise. Plus the staff is amazing. Friendly, encouring, and they get to know you- Mar 6, 2018 by T.L.
The following are always awesome: The workouts. The trainers. The time - I’m a realtor and a mom of three babies, so a 30-45 min stellar work out is what I need. The environment. The music.- Feb 27, 2018 by L.Z.
I love the flexibility for my work schedule and the trainers are very interactive and encouraging.- Jan 26, 2018 by A.M.
I love 9rounds! It has been the best experience as far as fitness I have ever had. The 9rounds Hoover staff always greet me by name and make me feel at home.- Jan 17, 2018 by C.H.
The trainers are very interested in getting to know you! As soon as I walk in I am greeted by name and they ask about me when I miss a few days! They are also very client oriented! They tailor the dif... ferent rounds to what you can do and what will be the overall best for you in the end! I can’t rave enough about the friendly staff! I have already recommended 9Rounds to all my friends! I love this gym and couldn’t image working out anywhere else! I always leave sweaty and feeling accomplished! Thanks 9Rounds for a fun, one of a kind workout! More- Dec 29, 2017 by T.N.
The workouts vary daily but they're always a challenge. It's an efficient use of time - which as a working mom is key! You're guaranteed a hard fun workout. And the staff is the best - Forest and Dom... and everyone make you feel so welcome and help you look forward to a workout! More- Nov 28, 2017 by A.A.
I love being able to start my workout within 3 minutes of my arrival! No waiting, and it’s almost like training with a personal trainer but without all the awkward pressure.- Oct 29, 2017 by B.E.
I love 9Rounds! Everyone there is absolutely amazing. I thought at first I would only go 3 times a week, but now it has become apart of my everyday routine Monday through Friday. I haven't felt this g... ood in a long time. I appreciate Forrest and the entire staff at 9Rounds. You guys are great! More- Oct 12, 2017 by C.H.
I like the personal attention from each of the trainers every time I'm there. The encouragement they give me has pushed me to do more than I thought possible. I like how friendly the other members are... . I also love the hardcore workout I get in just half an hour that is different with each visit. If I'm feeling extra energetic I always have the option of the 10th round, which gives me an even better sense of accomplishment. More- Oct 9, 2017 by E.P.
I love my trainers. The workouts are always fun and different. It's my favorite place to be during the day and one of the things I look forward to the most. I've always been active and fit but this ha... s put me in the best cardiovascular shape of my life. It makes cardio fun. More- Aug 31, 2017 by S.H.
My daughter and I joined about 2 months ago, and it has been amazing! I look forward to working out, I love that the workouts are different each day so there's no boredom. The trainers are awesome and... it feels like we are hanging out with friends at each workout, they're tough yet they WILL push you to your limits!! I love 9rounds!! More- Jul 16, 2017 by D.T.
I love that there are no class time. I love the friendly staff. I would have to say what I love the most is that I am seeing results. I've never had these results doing any other workout regime. I rec... ommend 9rounds to friends on a daily basis. More- Jul 14, 2017 by P.C.
The staff is what I like best about 9Round. I finished 1 year of crossfit and hated the "military" coaching mentality. Forest and the staff at 9Round are so encouraging and motivating. This is what I ... like most. More- Jul 12, 2017 by B.H.
Our trainers are the best people ever. They truly care about people's success and push people to being their best self. Also, the workouts always make me feel accomplished when I leave.- Jun 28, 2017 by S.B.

It's a great 30 minute workout using multiple muscle groups. I like that the coaches can tailor some of the stations based on client ability and/or need for modification.- Jun 16, 2017 by A.M.
I have done many workout programs and none have been as awesome as my workout at 9Round. I LOVE that its only 30 minutes, I can go when I want on my schedule not theirs, and workouts are always differ... ent. I don't have a lot of time and tend to get bored easily so the workouts are perfect for me. I have had trouble in the past with killing myself in hour long workouts 3 days a week, not having results and being told I "need to do cardio on off days". I literally have seen results in a matter of weeks and I do my 9 Round 3 days a week. The workouts are so efficient thats all it takes. I also love that its the least expensive out of all the programs I have tried. I love it and am recommending it to everyone I know. FINALLY I have found a workout that works for me. More- Jun 10, 2017 by E.B.
The great professional staff that is always ready to give you the best 30 minute workout at any time on any day. The encouragement you need to get through a workout is always present and the pride th... ey take in getting you there. They are on your team, your target is their goal. More- May 24, 2017 by J.C.
Best workout with best results I've ever seen. I tried a lot of different workouts (Beachbody, Pure Barre, my own workout at the gym, etc.) and I've never seen toned results and muscle definition like... I have with 9Round. Also, you can't beat the fast paced rounds and quick time in and out with still burning lots of calories. I have become great friends with my trainers, one of which even came to my wedding. They push you and encourage you to really bring out the best version of you and best results. I have recommended this to so many friends and family who have signed up and love it just as much as I do! I'm currently 4 1/2 months pregnant and still going to 9round 3-4 times a week, the trainers have been great with modifying and working with me. 9round is my favorite addiction!
