Established in 2008, 9Round is a network of specialized fitness centers dedicated to serving members who want a unique, fun, and proven workout that guarantees results. 9Round offers a kickboxing fitness program that incorporate functional, interval, cardiovascular, and circuit training regimens. “The programs consist of a proprietary system of nine challenging workout stations,” says Hudson. “9Round delivers total-body results in a quick and convenient 30-minute workout with no class times and a trainer there to guide and motivate members every step of the way.” The convenience of the 9Round circuit training model makes it ideal for members who want flexibility in their workout schedule. A new session begins every three minutes, so a member can come in and get started at any time with minimal waiting. Each time they come in, they’re guaranteed to get a fast, full-body workout guided by a trainer. “Each of the nine rounds is different, challenging, and fun,” says Hudson. “From jumping rope to hitting the speed bag, our members never get bored. Our one of a kind 9Round Certification Program provides the franchise owner and their team with the knowledge and confidenceto be successful.” Marketing, advertising, and branding support is also provided as part of the low investment, low overhead business model that has earned 9Round a place in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 list for the past five years. With a multitude of support systems in place and full initial and ongoing training programs, the 9Round system continues its rapid global expansion. The brand is seeking to continue establishing its operations worldwide. “Entrepreneurs can’t get enough of the 9Round concept,” says Hudson. “Our small square-footage business model requires minimal overhead and leads to a potentially quick breakeven. We are aggressively looking for master developers to continue our rapid international growth.” 100
