9Round Expands to Costa Rica

The company now operates more than 580 locations in 13 countries

November 28, 2017 // Franchising.com // GREENVILLE, S.C. - 9Round, the world’s fastest-growing kickboxing fitness franchise, has announced its expansion into Central America with the opening of its first location in Costa Rica. 9Round plans to open five more 9Round locations throughout Costa Rica over the next three years. These new franchises are locally owned and operated by Gerardo Alfaro.

“The Costa Rican market has many fitness options, but none that compare to what 9Round offers in terms of a convenient, 30-minute, full-body workout,” says Alfaro. “In addition, at 9Round there are no class times, trainers are always on site to lead the workouts, and routines change daily. We know the local market will love 9Round as much as we do.”

Developed by Shannon Hudson, the former IKF Light Middleweight Kickboxing Champion of the World, 9Round workouts consist of nine, three-minute stations of activities that include cardio, weight training, core exercises and kicks and punches on 100-pound, double-end, upper cut and speed bags. A real boxing bell rings to begin the workout, another to warn the station is ending and a third to signal the end. Members have a 30-second active break between rounds.

Over 9Round’s nine-year history, the brand has quickly become a global phenomenon. To date this year, 9Round has opened 128 new clubs including its 500th overall and first locations in Turkey. Additionally, 9Round has been ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine in 2017 as one of the Fastest-Growing Franchises (#22), one of the Top Global Franchises (#103), and one of the Top Franchise Brands (#115).

“We are excited about 9Round’s expansion into Costa Rica and the opportunity to introduce our convenient, fun and specialized kickboxing training to people there,” said Shannon Hudson, 9Round CEO and founder. “With the entry into this new market, 9Round now operates more than 580 locations in 40 states and 13 countries, and we have no plans of slowing down.”
