“We weren’t planning on owning a business. As fitness lovers with small children, my husband and I found it hard to make class times and also be gone for an entire hour. When we discovered 9Round, we knew how much it’s structure would benefit us and the many others in our situation. As the first in our area, we wanted to reserve a few other spots that we knew others would eventually take, so we decided early on that we would quit our jobs and make this our only focus. We now have five locations. Being a 9Round franchisee is a fitness lover’s dream business. Corporate support has been one of the main keys to our success and we couldn’t be happier with where we are now.”

“As a trainer of 12 years, I have owned two other gyms and, although my clients had great results from these other gyms, nothing compared to the results my 9Round clients see. After hearing and learning about the 9Round concept, I quickly decided to open a location in Charlotte with a business partner. We have had a steady 500-person membership and, within six months, we had the funds to open our second location. We went on to open our third club completely debt-free. From a business and revenue standpoint, I am more than happy! It is hard work but, as an owner of multiple locations, I know my team is working hard on my behalf to sell memberships and keep my clubs thriving, even when I’m not physically there. The concept is great, the people are great, and I am so glad that I became a 9Round franchisee.”

"Going into college, I knew that the health and fitness industry was where my passion was. Doing a 9 to 5 just wasn’t something that ever interested me. As I went through years as a personal trainer, I learned just how hard it was to be successful on your own. During that time, I heard about 9Round and started working there as a trainer. It was instantly a great fit. Soon after, I decided to become a franchisee. I’ve been with 9Round for over five years now and the support from the Home Office as well as other owners has been phenomenal. The plan is always right there for you and you just have to implement it. Owners communicate daily about the ins and outs of what it takes to be successful. Now, I’m working toward opening my second location and I’ve never had a regret about joining the 9Round franchise system!"

"Always having been interested in fitness, I chose to make it my career because I really enjoy helping people. When researching options in the industry, franchising seemed like the right path for me because of the structure and systems provided by franchisors. I knew 9Round was the franchise for me because it’s such a unique concept and boxing and kickboxing are classic exercises that have been around for ages. I couldn’t be happier with the company and its efficiency. The Home Office feels like family and when I go to the yearly convention with my fellow 9Round franchisees, I’m surrounded by great friends that have the same goals and mindset that I do. I would choose 9Round time and time again, as I continue to do by opening more clubs."

“Upon investigating multiple fitness opportunities, it became clear to me that there was only one real conduit to deliver my passion: 9Round! I am both blessed and cursed with being an unyielding perfectionist and 9Round met and continues to meet my expectations. My club in Ontario, CA has been open for just over eight months and we have had up to 300 members at one time. As a 9Round owner, I have had the ability to provide our members with a nonjudgmental environment in which they can manage the stresses of everyday life and become better people. Much of my success is owed to the support and guidance of the 9Round Home Office. They set out a simple, step-by-step, comprehensive playbook which ensures success. When locking up my gym at the end of the day, I can’t help but smile and think, ‘Today, I made a difference!’”

“We chose 9Round because we saw an opportunity to get in on the ground floor doing something we are passionate about. Because 9Round had an infrastructure in place to support multi-unit growth, when an opportunity to expand presented itself, we embraced it. We have one of the top clubs in the system with locations in NC and NY. We attribute this success to the combination of our abilities and the support and strength of the 9Round Franchise. 9Round is a fast growing company and we are proud to be a part of it.”

“9Round was the one kickboxing fitness franchise that “fit” our family dynamic. We were able to initially run our first location with just one of us in the gym and the other taking care of the needs of our three children. We had no need to hire additional staff until we were cash flow positive and reached a member count that demanded it. This was a huge plus for us and one of the reasons we were initially attracted to 9Round. Because we believed in the concept so much after first doing the workout in Greenville, SC, we signed a 3-pack agreement from the start. If you follow the 9Round methodology and find the right employees, you have a great chance of success.”
