What Our Franchisees Say
As a fitness industry professional, I was already aware of the 9Round concept and loved it. I saw it as a great opportunity to turn my passion into a profitable career and be in control of when I worked and future success.Gregg Gray, 9Round Club Owner
After exploring several options within the fitness sector, really diving into the commercials and operational requirements of the 9Round opportunity, we soon realised that it was model that was working really well. One of the main appeals was ease to operations and high yielding membership model.Pinal & Pratek Patel, 9Round Multi-Unit Owners
We had no prior experience in fitness so having the support of a UK based team to help us understand the market, how to successfully open and operate clubs has been essential.Pinal & Pratek Patel, 9Round Multi-Unit Owners
