About the team
Matt McCue, Owner
Hi, I’m Matt McCue, aka Southpaw! I am originally from Western KY and moved to Athens in 2010 and quickly fell in love with the city. My wife, Melisa,... and I opened the East Athens 9Round Location in 2016 after I was a member on the Westside. The brilliant concept of 9Round sparked my interest from the beginning and my passion for sports and fitness made it feel like the perfect fit for me. 4 years later, we had the opportunity to take over the West Athens location as well and I am so grateful to be to serve all of Athens now! 9Round has not only given me the opportunity help countless people with their fitness goals, I’ve also gotten to know so many awesome people in meantime. 9Round has given our family a flexibility that is priceless and I’m able to spend time with my wife and my 2 girls, enjoy so many different hobbies, and continue to explore this beautiful city! I am an avid Dolphins and Heat fan and I enjoy cheering on the Dawgs as long as they aren’t playing GT, my favorite college team. In my spare time, I enjoy cornhole, mountain biking, golf, and basketball. I enjoy connecting with my members and sharing common interest to get to know them. I look forward to meeting you soon....see ya at the gym! More

East Side Athens GA 9Round has a wonderful atmosphere and "part of the family" culture. I've felt comfortable from the moment I walked through the door. I was hesitant to do the heart rate monitor a... long with my membership, but now I am happy to have it. The workout updates are great. I love being able to check the screen while I'm working out to make sure I'm pushing myself the most! More- Dec 14, 2019 by Brooke Whitmire
It's such a fun workout and you are in and out in 30-40 minutes and the results speak for themselves. Would I prefer to spend less than $40 a month to get fit? Sure, but I do not like gyms, I am not m... otivated to do at-home workouts, and I don't care for running but I have always loved kickboxing. More- Dec 13, 2019 by M.T.

It doesn't consume too much of my time, so I'm excited to get in several times a week without taking too much time away from everything else that's going on.

Love the instant feedback and support! More- Jun 13, 2019 by Emily Cabrera
9Round provides a fun, energetic, and productive environment to work out, destress, and become stronger every day. I love walking into 9Round and seeing my favorite trainers and catching up with them ... on how they are doing. It's like a little family, and you never know who you'll meet walking through the doors! I would recommend 9Round to anyone who is looking to get real results and enjoy the process. The workouts at 9Round are NEVER the same, so every day is a surprise, and that's one of the many things I love about this workout. I look forward to getting to 9Round every day, no matter how tired I am. My favorite bag is the speedball...it is super satisfying to be able to get a rhythm hitting that bag. I always feel accomplished, rejuvenated and alive after my workout. If you love to sweat, and you want to get into shape quickly, 9Round is definitely the way to go!
