9Round StL is home to the Superheroes of Fitness - rescuing average citizens from the obstacles that hold them back from reaching their fitness goals. Our trainers assist members in honing skills and increasing fitness levels, so that they can fight every day enemies, such as the endurance required to climb stairs and play with their kids, and progress to taking on super-villians, like marathons and competitive sports.

Our 30-minute workouts have no set class times or appointments, so that members can get in and out without anyone catching on to their secret fat-fighting double-lives. A certified trainer works with each member during every workout, motivating them to tap into super abilities, performing impressive feats, specific to their fitness levels, building confidence and super-strength. As the team progresses, members begin to take on superhero personas, leading by example, inspiring and encouraging each other, fostering a loyalty to their fitness routines that is the recipe for life-long health.

Since every superhero needs a tool belt, supportive hand wraps and championship boxing gloves are included with every membership. And although nutrition can often be kryptonite to a hero's success, that is not the case at 9Round. Our nutrition program destroys bad eating habits with meal planning and nutrition coaching, at no extra charge. 

In less than three years, the owners April "The Punisher" Porter and Brian "Bone Crusher" Porter have grown 9Round StL to four locations - Creve Coeur, Kirkwood-Des Peres, O'Fallon-Winghaven, and Wildwood. 9Round StL is the only 9Round team in St. Louis to give members access to more than one location. 

9Round StL has attained such Superhero success, in part, by its service and support of the community with charitable contributions, toy and food drives, breast cancer awareness events, Chamber of Commerce memberships, volunteerism and social activities for its members and team to build relationships outside the gym. This focus on community has resulted in 9Round StL receiving the honor of 2015 West County Business of the Year and being named to St. Louis Small Business Monthly's Future 50 Companies of St. Lous. In addition, April Porter has been featured in Entrepreneur.com, Club Solutions Magazine, St. Louis Magazine, and the St. Louis Business Journal for her role in 9Round and the St. Louis community.

The awards and features are evidence of the great work happening at 9Round StL, but the Porters find that the biggest personal reward of owning a small business is the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of 9Round StL members and employees.

We know that time is money. That's why the convenience of a circuit is so important. You start your workout whenever you want - morning, afternoon, or evening. Each of the 9 rounds are different, challenging, and fun. From learning how to jump rope to hitting the speed bag, you will never get bored. The 30 minutes will be over before you know it. Our members can't stop saying, "This is the Best workout I have ever had." That's because you will work every muscle in your body simultaneously, with no complicated machines or silly aerobic routines.
