A Stronger Fitness franchise

why franchise with 9round?

We’re creating the most inclusive boutique fitness community that supports members in living stronger and healthier lives.

We’re seeking ambitious, forward thinking and service-oriented Franchise Partners who share our mission and want to play a role in the booming global interest in health and wellness. Those who see the commercial opportunity in making boutique clubs more accessible, and supporting members in achieving realistic and sustainable fitness goals.

We offer you a relatively low up-front investment approximately one-third of a traditional gym franchise, the opportunity for a fast ROI in just 2-3 years, and a clear path to long-term, sustainable growth. So, whether you’re looking to expand or diversify your existing portfolio or turn your passion for fitness into a profitable business, a 9Round franchise is the future you’ve been looking for.

Appealing concept

An in-demand concept

9 rounds, 3 minutes each, 30 seconds rest, all completed in just over 30 minutes. There are no set session times, members simply turn up when works for them.

A clear target

Our brand is designed to appeal to those who have found traditional gyms don’t work for them or want to increase the intensity of the fitness regime. This makes your acquisition, retention and member culture building easier.

A supportive environment

1:1 guidance comes with every membership, without the added expense of a Personal Trainer. Our trainers know members by name and support them in their progress.

simple & scaleable model

Smaller units

9Round clubs are 1,000-1,500 sq ft, providing the ability to open units in prime locations, otherwise inaccessible to the competition.
