Kickin' it at Waterdown's 9Round Fitness

News Sep 27, 2019 by Julia Lovett-Squires Flamborough Review

It’s time to kick your workout up a notch at Waterdown's newest gym.

A "boutique-style fitness concept," 9Round Fitness is owned by Mike Drake and opened its doors a few months ago on Dundas Street East near Walmart.

Drake brought the kick-boxing franchise to Waterdown after running a successful location in Georgetown for a number of years.

“We love talking to our members by name, they’re not just a number to us,” he said, noting that the community vibe is similar in both towns.

9Rounds works to develop cardiovascular stamina through 30-minute workouts and there aren’t any set class times.

“People can come in whenever they would like and hop into a circuit,” said Drake, noting that access to trainers is always included in the membership.

“They’re always going to have a workout built for them and fully guided by a trainer.”

Since opening, the studio has seen plenty of people walk through its doors. For the uninitiated, they are welcome to a free session to see if it’s a good fit.

“They can come in and we put them through a first-time workout, which is showing them how to do the punching, how to do kicks, getting them comfortable with our circuit format and really giving them a full experience,” said Drake.

“For all of us who are super busy and don’t have a lot of time to spend hours in the gym, I think it’s very appealing to have the no class times, the 30-minutes and of course having a trainer to give you guidance and motivation.”
