9Round was founded in 2008 by Heather “The Hero” and her husband Shannon “The Cannon” Hudson with one vision in mind: to change people’s lives. As busy parents and business owners, they wanted to create a space where those under a time crunch could get a killer workout without having to schedule around specific class times or spend hours at the gym. Between Shannon’s passion for martial arts and kickboxing training and Heather’s passion for fitness, the 9Round franchising empire was built.

9Round believes that every person deserves world-championship, quality training on their own schedule. They offer a kickboxing-themed fitness program that incorporates functional, interval, cardiovascular, and circuit training regimens. The workout circuit consists of 9 challenging stations lasting 3 minutes each, with personalized guidance and motivation from a certified trainer along the way. Each workout lasts 30 minutes and changes every day! Every member can jump into the workout at any time, at any station, any time of day! In just 30 minutes they’ll see themselves becoming stronger and more agile with a full body workout.

9Round prides itself on offering one of the most affordable fitness franchises in the industry, as well as providing every owner with a full suite of business support from financing to training to marketing, ensuring you have all the tools you need to find success. 9Round not only has a low cost of entry, but low overhead! You won’t need to worry about upkeep on expensive cardio machines, equipment, or maintenance of a large space. Aside from the timer to indicate the length of each station, all equipment is non-electronic.

As an owner, you’ll receive unparalleled training and onboarding support from choosing the ideal location, online training courses, marketing, and our four-day training camp at 9Round World HQ to equip you with all the knowledge every owner needs to find success.

9Round currently has over 700 clubs open and operating throughout the world, and over 500 more in development continuing to offer the promise of making members stronger in 30 minutes both physically and mentally.
