9Round vs traditional gyms

People are demanding more convenience and faster, more engaging workouts in a more pleasant and immersive environment. We believe our business model has many advantages over traditional gyms and franchises in other sectors.

  • The right time to invest – boutique gyms are thriving
  • Finding PROPERTY is generally easier and quicker with smaller 1,000-1,500sq. ft units
  • 9Round trainers get to know members by name, unlike the big volume-member gyms
  • Typical opening hours 7am – 9pm weekdays, depending on location
  • Monthly subscription income with returning members rather than passing trade
