Members and investors in 9Round 30-minute kickbox fitness studios are enjoying the latest trends in fitness right now – and 9Round helps keep them hitting their business and fitness goals all year.
9Round's revolutionary studios attract new members by offering the latest worldwide fitness trends, as defined by the annual survey of The American College of Sports Medicine. Number one is wearable tech. All 9Round members have access to wearable heart-rate technology that helps them achieve effective, measurable results.
9Round's full-body workouts include high intensity interval training (HIIT) – number two on the top trends list – and group training (number three). Other top trends that 9Round offers include free weights, body weight training, personal trainers (certified fitness professionals are always available to guide and motivate members), and health and wellness coaching.
Tackling the February fall-off
January is busy in fitness studios as people join for the new year; but by the end of February many abandon their resolutions. 9Round has solutions for this that come as part of its franchise package.
Matt Fowler, UK Franchise Sales Manager at 9Round, says: “One of the main reasons that studio members lose interest is boredom, which is why 9Round issues new routines every single day. Keeping members motivated to reach their fitness goals also helps keep our franchisees on track to reach their business goals.
“Cutting down membership cancellations benefits everyone because winning new members means extra marketing costs for studio owners.”
Kevin 0'Hare, owner of the 9Round studio in Belfast, says: “9Round's new daily workout routines counter the boredom that can cause members to drop out, and with no fixed class times members are not deterred from attending by missing classes.
“On top of all the other practical help that 9Round franchisees get from franchise head office, this helps your business grow throughout the year.”
The fast-growing fitness franchise is looking for new investors with business or franchise experience to open new studios in the UK. Matt says: “Finding sites is easier because 9Round studios are smaller than traditional studios, and investors can see a full ROI within two years.”
