Instructors outfit every new student with gloves before introducing them to fast-paced, 30-minute boxing or kickboxing workouts. The workout involves nine rounds—or stations—of exercises, which change daily according the trainers' whims. The first two drills always focus on building strength, the next six develop boxing and kickboxing skills, and the final task works the core muscles. Together, the exercises work the whole body. Because the stations are completed at your own pace, you can start the workout whenever you enter the gym.
Like many boxing gyms, 9Round echoes with the steady ring of bells and buzzers. They go off every three minutes, in fact, but rather than signalling the start of a round, they signal the start of a workout session. The trainers devise nine exercise stations every morning, and then run the circuits every three minutes from open until close. The day's workout is never the same, but each one encompasses fundamental similarities. For instance, every session starts with strength training, challenging clients' muscles with heavy weights. Next, patrons move to tackling heavy bags, speed bags, and double-end bags for the bulk of the workout, honing boxing and kickboxing abilities such as power, hand-eye coordination, and speed, all of which help a person to effectively disarm and dismember a piñata. The final station always works the core, enhancing regular crunches and twists with the addition of medicine balls and weights.
