As a personal trainer, group fitness instructor and ‘fitnessprenuer’, I am extremely busy and want a fulfilling workout when I take time to take a class.
I was impressed. It was a killer workout with personal training attention, all within 30 minutes!
About the Workout
In order to get the blood flowing, the first few stations were focused on various full body warm up movements, including boxing style jump rope and push-up mountain climbers. The following six stations all focused on kickboxing exercises and had different bags for different types of punching and kicking. For example, I started with jabs on a double ended bag to challenge my coordination and timing and moved on to a hanging heavy bag for jab/cross/kick combos to amp up the intensity. One of the things that makes the 9Round workout unique is that some of the stations also incorporate fitness movements like burpees, mountain climbers and squat jumps into the kickboxing combos. I must say though, my absolute favorite part of the program was when my trainer surprised me by having me turn around and throw punch combos into pads on her hands. This individual attention was a great motivational boost that made me feel like a real boxer training for a prize fight.
Fast-pace. Motivating. Flat out fun.
Overall, I would describe the 9Round Denver experience as fast-paced, highly motivating and flat out fun. The time flew by and I left the studio feeling accomplished and energized. The nine different stations kept the workout exciting and engaging the entire time, not to mention the great stress relief that comes with really laying into the heavy bag! The individual attention from the trainers made me feel like a real champ. In the words of the great Muhammad Ali, “You can throw in the towel or you can use it to wipe off the sweat and keep going!”
