About the team
Matt McCue, Owner
Hi, I’m Matt McCue! 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
My name is Sami Gascho! I am a third-year undergraduate student at the University of Georgia. I am majoring in Human Development and Family Sciences w...ith a pre-requisite for Nursing and I am working on a Certificate in Disability Studies. I am from the Athens area and graduated from North Oconee High School. In high school, I played basketball for one year and volleyball for all four years. At UGA I am involved in several different clubs and organizations and I am a member of the sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, eating good food (especially Cali ‘n Tito’s!!), and working out. 9Round is the place for me because our members and trainers feel like a second family. My job is so rewarding to get to see our members grow in their strength and confidence at the same time! The energy at 9Round is like no other! More
I'm Deirdre Donohoe. I am from the Athens area (Oglethorpe County). There is nowhere that I'd rather call home. Trust me; I've tried lots of other pla...ces. I run my own Mary Kay business. I have two dogs that do nothing but sleep and eat. Before I found 9Round that's all I did too. I love 9Round because you see results quickly and never get bored! I started as member in 2016 and have lost 20+ pounds since my initial work out and gained a whole lot of muscle!! I love working with all the awesome members and trainers at this 9Round because y'all make me earn my beer More
Hi! My name is Zach Gamber. I am from the Athens area. I actually discovered 9round in Greenville South Carolina at the world headquarters while livin...g there and have been hooked since. I’ve been practicing kickboxing for about 3 years and have never done anything like 9round before. 9round is fantastic because it pertains to everyone no matter what stage a member is at in their fitness journey. 9round members and trainers are the absolute greatest! Everyone is helping make each other become the best they can be! More
My name is Margaret Guest. I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, and am currently in my fifth year as an Athens resident. I am working to achieve... a degree as registered nurse in the state of Georgia. I started working out at 9Round two years ago, and it was love at first punch. I deeply enjoy the physically/mentally positive and friendly environment that 9Round has offered me. They made me feel at home immediately, while delivering a variety of tough workouts and challenges each day. Being a trainer at both of our locations is such a treat to me, and I cannot imagine being a member at any other gym. 9Round has put me in the best shape of my life thus far. The friends and memories I have made at this gym will last a lifetime, and are invaluable to me. I am very proud to be a part of something so unique and stimulating. More
Hi, my name is Sara Carver! I was born and raised in the Atlanta, Georgia area in a small country town called Rockmart. Currently, I’m a first-year st...udent at the University of North Georgia planning to transfer to the University of Georgia next spring, working to achieve a degree in Communications. Growing up, starting from a young age, I enjoyed playing many sports both in school and on club teams such as softball, basketball, and lacrosse. I have stayed very active throughout my life so when I moved to Athens for school, I tried 9Round out and immediately fell in love with the program. Being able to walk in whenever 9Round is open and have a killer workout presented to me from the greatest trainers, all within 30 minutes was fantastic. Within only a couple months, 9Round helped me melt some weight off as well as build great muscle. I realized 9Round is so unique because it offers diverse challenging but also exciting workouts each day. Even though our gym is kickbox based, 9Round isn’t only for kickboxers; it is geared toward helping all types of people from all levels reach any goal. I loved 9Round so much, that I wanted to become a trainer myself and be a part of the revolution for other members. Now that I am a part of the 9Round crew, I am ecstatic and could not see myself working nor working out anywhere else. My favorite part about being a 9Round trainer is learning and personally connecting with our members and watching them excel and grow overtime in their fitness journey. I am so thrilled and proud to be a part of such an exceptional 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. I also like how the exercises are straight... forward, so you don't have to decide what to do, for how long, etc. You just know what to do and someone is there to help you do it correctly! 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!
