Kickboxers are some of the fittest people on the planet – just ask Shannon ‘The Cannon’ Hudson, 2011 IKF Light Middleweight Kickboxing Champion of the World. And now you can build your own successful fitness business based on his personal training secrets.

Shannon and his wife, Heather, opened their first 9Round studio in South Carolina, US, in 2008, and there are good reasons why it became one of the fastest-growing franchised brands in the world.

  • Basic kickboxing moves combine cardio and resistance training for a complete, full-body workout in just 30 minutes.
  • 9Round is all ‘Stronger in 30 minutes’. It’s a great way for anyone to get fit and strong.
  • Circuits start every three minutes so members never have to wait around or miss out on a session.
  • A qualified trainer is always on hand to guide, motivate and provide quality instruction at no extra charge.
  • Workouts change daily to provide variety and no-one gets bored. 
  • Clubs are conveniently located in easy-to-reach urban centres.

With fun, fast fitness and no complicated timetables or expensive extras 9Round is a new and exciting experience for people who want to look and feel their best. It’s also a unique opportunity for business-minded fitness fanatics to live their dream as a 9Round Franchise Partner. 

9Round franchise invests in growth

There are more than 800 9Round clubs across 19 countries with plans to top 1,000 by the end of 2021. Franchisor Lift Brands, the international network that also operates Snap Fitness, is increasing its investment to support 9Rounds’ growth.

“If you’re passionate about fitness and helping people to achieve their goals, this could be the perfect time to  invest in a 9Round franchise,” says Lift Brands APAC CEO Chris Caldwell. “With 34 locations now open across Australia and New Zealand, and a further four set to open soon, we’re already looking to 2021 and smashing our goals.”

Support on all sides

9Round is on a mission to make it easy to help the right people own their own business.

“We’re dedicated to keeping the 9Round franchise model simple and the cost of entry low,” Caldwell says. “We offer a proven business model and a network of dedicated support staff who are always ready to provide support and guidance.”

9Round makes it easy to gather all the information you need to make your decision.

“We want everyone who joins our network to be absolutely sure 9Round is the right business partner for them and confident we can help them reach their career goals,” Caldwell says.
