9Round: The world’s best kickboxing fitness concept.

Making members stronger, physically and mentally.

Those aren’t just words on paper, they’re words we live by. Our mission at 9Round is Making members stronger in 30 minutes, physically and mentally. We’re dedicated to enriching people’s lives and strengthening communities through our kickboxing fitness program, and our network of franchisees is the most important part of making our mission a reality.

What is 9Round?

9Round was founded with humble beginnings in 2008 by Shannon “The Cannon” Hudson, a World Champion Kickboxer, and his wife Heather “The Hero” Hudson, an avid fitness enthusiast.

Since then, with the help of our franchisees and their teams, our kickboxing-fitness franchise has grown tremendously with over 600 locations now open and has been delivering fast, effective, full-body workouts to members of local studios in the U.S., Canada, and across the globe—including studios in Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ecuador, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, the UAE, United Kingdom, Japan, Singapore, New Zealand, Qatar, Indonesia, Vietnam and Australia.

And we’re not finished yet!

We’re expanding rapidly as 9Round continues to gain popularity as people search for a fast, fun workout they don’t have to schedule their lives around.

With a kickboxing instructor facilitating each workout, 9Round is able to ensure each session is effective for every member at every fitness level.

Why Members Love 9Round

The Workout: Members get a full-body guided workout that’s fun and effective in just 30 minutes. Paired with our no class times circuit format in the studio, it’s a no brainer for a busy lifestyle! Plus, members can work out any time using our 9RoundNOW app.

Accountability: Not only are our energetic 9Round trainers there to lead and motivate members through each day’s professionally programmed, unique workout, but they also provide accountability check-ins to make sure members show up and stay on track with their goals.

Nutrition Support: Because we know that working out alone isn’t enough to get members to their fitness goals, we offer nutritional guidance through the online Member Portal. 9Rounders can access a comprehensive, easy-to-follow nutrition guide, along with new recipes, tips, and additional content added each month.

Branded nutritional supplements are also available for members to purchase through local studios.
