The world’s beastliest workout – incorporating boxing, kickboxing and martial arts – has made its way to Brisbane.

Fast-tracked from the U.S by Australia fitness heavyweights Snap Fitness, 9Round is the newest fitness craze offering 30 minute boxing-style workouts for time poor people looking to get fit.

The company has just started rolling out this new fitness program, opening a range of 9Round fitness studios around the country. It’s most recent one opened last week in Morningside, sending Brissie fitness fanatics into a frenzy!

The brand’s Australian CEO, Dan Newton says the workout is perfect for people of any fitness level seeking a high intensity, high results challenge.

“Health and fitness is the solution to everything, it cures sickness, fends off mental illness and maximises an individual’s lifestyle, but in today’s busy society more and more people are finding it difficult to keep fit,” he says.

“With 9Round circuits starting every three minutes and burning up to 500 calories in 30 minutes – there is no excuse for not putting you health and wellness first.”

A session typically involves 9 rounds (as the name suggests) of both interval training structured into 3 minutes of intense cardio and then one minute of active rest.

The first two stations start off with strength building exercises before moving into more high intensity cardiovascular and core strengthening activities – sounds like fun!

Dan says the company has a rapid expansion planned for 9Round, with 50 clubs opening across the country this year and 100 more clubs to follow in the next five years.

“People are time poor and in desperate need of a convenient workout experience which complements their busy lifestyle. Jumping on this, 9Round offers the basics, like a full body workout with a motivating trainer. It also breaks the mould to provide a little extra, with perks like heart rate technology delivering measurable results and a virtual nutrition coach for every member,” he says.

“Challenging and training yourself teaches you to use your body for greatness, whether it’s training for a triathlon or going glove to glove with your gym mate – exercise is the key to maximising ones potential.”

“We want the 9Round workout to empower people to be the best versions of themselves.”

It sounds like a fun way to get fit! If you’re stuck in a rut and feel like you’re not getting anywhere fitness-wise, why not try something a little different this year?
