What Members are Saying
Excellent gym. I love everyone here! Love the workout!- Mar 1, 2020 by A.F.D.
Love this place. 30 minute HIIT and fun. Never gets old. Trainers are so nice and tough at the same time. The best part: you can go anytime they're open and the trainers will walk you through the work... outs and help you. Did OTF for one year and this I like more due to 30 min time for a superb workout and flex timing. More- Feb 23, 2020 by Nila Stevens
The new trainer Ian has great energy and it’s a joy to see him at 5am. And he delivers a great workout! I’m impressed with him even in the first week(s).- Feb 22, 2020 by L.V.V.
This is the best 30 min exercise you can get. Specially for me, who can not commit to a longer exercise. Also this is a great exercise for my teenage boys, who likes to stay home and play their game... s. They like to go to exercise because its only 30 min. More- Feb 14, 2020 by A.B.
I love 9 Round and would highly recommend it to anyone. The convenience of no class times, high intensity and fun work out is really fun and energizing. I really love the work out and can't say enough... about how convenient and manageable it is! More- Feb 10, 2020 by Justine Mitchell

9 rounds Evanston is the best. Dorothy and her staff are the best.- Jan 31, 2020 by D.L.
I LOVE Evanston 9Round! Dorothy and all of the other trainers are so supportive but also push me to be my best. I hadn't made it in for over a month due to holiday traveling and being sick but when I ... returned and apologized for my absence, Dorothy told me, "I'm just glad you're here now," which was exactly what I needed to hear to kickstart my healthy habits. As for the workout, it is one of the only workouts I actually have fun with. It's tough but quick and makes you feel invincible the rest of the day. Would highly recommend for any fitness level as you can tailor the workouts to your needs. More- Jan 27, 2020 by Bailey Halkett

great new trainers - better than a month or two ago when it was tough to get a great workout in the early hours (the only time I can come in) -- love Usie (sp?) who has great energy and presence.- Jul 25, 2019 by L.V.V.
It’s a great workout within 40-45 minutes- Jul 25, 2019 by J.F.
No class times, trainers on hand, variety of workout, all levels...- Jul 10, 2019 by J.F.
There’s someone there to encourage me as I go.- Jul 5, 2019 by S.J.C.
I like the 9 distinct "rounds" (or "circuits"), each lasting 3 minutes with 30 seconds of vigorous "rest" in between. I can modify the round as I need, given any day's particular circumstance (tight h... ere, need to work better form there, balance could be better in this part). The boxing and kickboxing kinetics are like disciplined movements; they compel me to learn how the turn the vertical, rotate hips or shoulders, and start movements from the lowest extremities extending out through arms or legs. Since joining, I've learned how the whole body works together in a way that can create a very pleasant (and demanding) flow. This didn't happen at first; it takes time to learn.

Close to home. Nice trainers.- May 1, 2019 by J.A.
I like that there is no official start time for workouts. It is so easy to get there when I can because the workout just starts anytime. I also like the variety of the workouts and the trainers- Apr 26, 2019 by S.L.
I like that 9RD is a continuous workout that involves the entire body combining strength and cardiovascular exercise. I also like the enthusiasm that Sam (trainer) brings to his job every day. I real... ly enjoy how he always actively engages with the members in the freestyle exercise and other rounds. He always helping everyone make the most of their workout. He puts in the extra effort making an ordinary workout into extraordinary workout. More- Apr 25, 2019 by J.F.
I love that its a complete work out, including cardio, in approximately 30 minutes. I also love that there is no set "class" time; you just go when you can and get started and there are trainers ther... e to guide you and keep you motivated. I especially like Sam, one of the trainers at Evanston. He has great energy and really knows how to motivate me without going over the top. He also ensures that you are doing proper technique so you don't injure yourself. Some days I really have to talk myself into going but after a workout with Sam and his music I'm pumped for the rest of my day! More- Apr 21, 2019 by S.I.
I absolutely love 9Round! I've really made a connection with the few trainers that I go in and see and they motivate me to want to come back. I always go around the same time and so not only have I bo... nded with those trainers but also the other members. I like the sense of community that 9Round builds and that only makes me want to come in more! More- Apr 10, 2019 by Bailey Halkett
Class at any time!- Apr 5, 2019 by M.L.
I like that my trainer Pat helps me modify for my personal needs and body type. He's an excellent trainer. I also like that I can come anytime for 30 minutes and get such a great workout. I'm hooked!- Mar 31, 2019 by L.B.
Instructors and time.- Feb 25, 2019 by K.J.

I love many of the trainers at my studio who recognize me when I walk in the door and push me to work harder every class. I like that there aren’t any class times and I can just show up whenever I wan... t. I love that it’s a 30 minute workout!!! More- Feb 6, 2019 by S.M.
