Dear, February: How’s that resolution coming?
Written by Heather Hudson, 13-Feb-2019
You’ve heard it all before. By February, an estimated 80 percent of New Year’s resolutions are already broken. But don’t despair. I can tell you first-hand from what I’ve seen across 9Round nation: When it comes to the New Year, we think far past January.
If you set a goal to exercise more in 2019, you’re not alone. Some 65 percent of Americans made the same resolution, according to Inc. magazine. And it’s an annual pledge that doesn’t have to meet with defeat and self-loathing, no matter your busy schedule.
In fact, hectic schedules, busy consumers, and time-strapped lives by those who still value fitness goals are just a few of the reasons we started 9Round. And answering those needs are why we have more than 775 locations around the world 10 years later. In other words, we have your back. And we take great pride in helping resolutions stick year-round.
So when it comes to all those reasons you couldn’t make it happen past January somewhere else, here’s how 9Round kicks and punches those goals into high gear.
Excuse #1: “I don’t have enough time.”
What “class time”? Your workout begins when you walk in the door. If you’re a 9Round member, you can make time for all of your other obligations AND your workout due to the convenience of our circuit model. Classes at 9Round last only 30 minutes, and they don’t have to be scheduled in advance. With a motto of “Stronger in 30 Minutes,” you get a full-body workout, burn the calories, increase your strength and stamina and you’re on your way in no time. When it comes to convenience, our workout’s emphasis on intensity over time makes us unlike any other boutique-style fitness center out there today.
Excuse #2: “I feel intimidated working out with others.”
If you’re getting back into the gym for the first time in a while, it can be an intimidating experience. Maybe you fear working out alongside others who may be more advanced than you. But at 9Round, our skilled and experienced personal trainers are invested in your own individual goals. They can help you pace yourself during workouts according to what you’re trying to achieve. Their daily role is to work with each 9Round member to become stronger both physically and mentally, which is why we like to say our trainers are not just in the fitness business, but they are in the “people business.” So whether you’re a beginner or a Navy Seal, a 9Round workout is scalable to your personal fitness needs, thanks to the support and motivation you’ll receive from a trainer.
Excuse #3: "It’s too expensive.”
First off, your first workout is FREE. That’s how passionate we are about delivering the 9Round workout experience. Then for a full 9Round membership, monthly costs vary depending on which studio you attend. You’ll find that while we are not the most expensive fitness center around, we are not the cheapest either, because we make sure our members get what they pay for: a quality workout that they can fit into their schedules any day, any time. On top of all that, you get:
- Access to an online member portal and mobile app with a meal planner, videos and more for tracking your progress
- Our wearable PULSE heart rate technology that measures the effectiveness of your workouts in real time (*at participating locations only)
- Championship boxing gloves & supportive wrist wraps
- In-class personal training (If you had three private personal training sessions outside of 9Round at $1/minute, it would cost close to a whopping $360/month... Which practically quadruples the average cost of a monthly 9Round membership!)
So, take that, resolutions! 9Round nation has you in mind and goes above and beyond what you’ve come to expect from the fitness industry at-large to make your goals a reality.
