About Us

Founded in 2008 by professional kickboxer Shannon Hudson and his wife, Heather, 9Round is a specialized fitness center that brings kickboxing fitness training to the average person in a convenient, affordable, 30-minute, full body circuit format. The program is developed around a proprietary and copyrighted system of nine challenging workout stations developed by Shannon himself. Today, there are more than 770 9Round locations open and operating throughout 42 states and in 17 countries including Canada, Costa Rica, Australia, Argentina, India, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Mexico, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Our Industry

Many factors have combined to create a fitness industry that is growing faster than it ever has before – now sitting at approximately $32 billion. The current U.S. health and fitness facility count is approximately 32,000. There are two opportunities within this marketplace: boutique fitness studios and “high-value, low-price” health clubs. Budget gyms attract members based on their large range of equipment and low-cost memberships. Boutique studios, like 9Round, have become increasingly popular in recent years and many have seen rapid growth all over the country. These small and specialized centers are likely to offer one type of class -- spinning, high-intensity interval training classes, circuit training, kickboxing, Pilates, etc. Consumer selling points for these are the central locations (they can fit almost anywhere), the specialization, and even the camaraderie fostered by the quainter environment.

Our Opportunity

9Round is seeking owner-operators and semi-absentee owners to help us continue to live out our mission. As a company, we’re committed to making our members stronger in 30 minutes, each time they walk through the doors of one of our facilities. We believe in giving each and every customer a killer workout experience, delivered with our world-famous energy and enthusiasm. To be successful our franchisees must embody three core values: love fitness, love people, love the brand. Do your values match ours? We’re looking for the right people to help us grow and bring the best 30 minute workout in the world to communities across the globe.
