If you are looking for a fast workout and are tired of a traditional machine heavy gym, then 9Round 30 Minute Kickbox Fitness is the place to try.

In the 9Round gym located on N. Zaragoza, members can do a quick
30 minutes of a full-body kickboxing-style workout.
Members are provided with a 9Round Nutrition E-Book, a heart-rate tracking technology system called Pulse, and trainers.
A one-day free trial is offered for those who want to try the program and see if it’s for them.
During my workout at the Zaragoza location, the trainers were very encouraging, providing a positive environment.
Manager of 9Round, Stephany Alvarez, said, “I like that in the program people get recognized for their hard work. They get a quick 30-minute workout, and we know who they are.”
She was right. Despite it being my first time there, my name was learned immediately by both trainers, and there was a positive energy amongst all the members there.
Alvarez added, “It lets me know that everybody, trainers, are going there and working, doing what they’re supposed to do and creating a friendly and nice environment for our members.”
After my workout, I learned that kickboxing is an effective way to work out because all the muscles in the body are used and are focused on.
“I think the program is very effective as far as you receiving unlimited classes, with nutrition included, unlimited workouts, and you have a trainer on site.”
Alvarez continued, “If you come in, there is someone there who is going to guide you through the workouts, because of that I think this is what helps a lot of people who don’t have an outline of what to do at a “box gym” when there’s machines.
Even though someone may have a program where they get a private session, while you’re here, you get to be guided as you go along.
“Not only are we a 30-minute workout, but the results and environment we provide is completely different from another gym.
Whenever you come in, we know who you are, we know why people like it because most of the time, people come in and as we get to know them we begin to create a relationship with our members,” Alvarez stated.
"We begin to know how there day went, what they do, we know their names, and a lot of the positive feedback we get back is because of these qualities.” Alvarez added
Although I myself have stayed active throughout my life, I have never gone to another gym that provided me with the same experience as this one.
I recommend everyone try a workout at 9Round 30 Minute Kickbox Fitness.
