9Round, a specialized fitness center that brings boxing and kickboxing fitness training to the average person in a convenient, affordable, 30-minute, full body circuit format, is now open in Palm Beach Gardens.
The new gym is located at 3814 Northlake Blvd. in the Northlake Commons Shopping Center. It is owned and operated by Jonathan Musillo, a baseball coach for over eight years at Barry University in Miami Shores and Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach.
“I have been involved in athletics nearly my entire life and when I decided to shift to becoming a business owner, fitness was the perfect fit for me,” said Musillo. “There isn’t really a more effective and convenient concept out there in fitness so I knew 9Round was the way to go. I am excited to make it available to the people throughout Palm Beach Gardens.”
Developed by reigning IKF Light Middleweight Kickboxing Champion of the World Shannon “The Cannon” Hudson, 9Round workouts consist of nine, three-minute stations of activities that include cardio, weight training, abdominal 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, which means doing small workouts with bags, as well as sit-ups and push-ups.
There are no class times, trainers are always on site, and routines change daily, giving members a fresh workout every time they come in.
“Whether you are a beginner or advanced fitness level, our trainers will help you kick and punch your way to a healthier you. We look forward to giving local residents the best workout they’ve ever had, minus the complicated machines,” said Musillo.
Memberships include hands wraps, boxing gloves, heart rate training program, online nutrition support and guidance as well as one-on-one training. First time guests get a free workout.
