Five minutes in the ring with the kickboxing studio coming to East Village

January 31, 2020

Get Living’s East Village neighbourhood is set to welcome a new retailer to add to its fitness and leisure offer. 9Round, a kickboxing studio which offers workouts that work around its members, will open on the corner of Celebration Avenue and Prize Walk this spring.  We asked the team running the E20 studio what its members can expect…


Tell us about 9Round, who you are and what you do?

 I’m Alex, the manager of 9Round East Village which will be opening this March. We are an innovative fitness centre offering personalised kickboxing, HIIT and strength training at an affordable monthly fee. Our training sessions start the second you walk in through the door, with no class timetables and a trainer assisting in every workout.


What kind of workout can we expect?

At 9round you can expect an engaging workout with boutique-industry standard trainers that will look after you every step of your fitness journey. We don’t just explain the workout, we also tailor it to every individual member who comes in to train with us based on goals ability and injury. We promise you’ll come away having had an awesome total body workout and newfound determination to see results!


What’s your favourite kind of workout?

Our favourite workout, is our workout of course! Combining high intensity interval training, kickboxing and strength training in a multitude of different routines – you’ll never do the same routine twice which means you won’t see your results plateaux. We are renowned for our dramatic weight loss, muscle development and maintenance and your cardio fitness will improve dramatically.


What’s your favourite thing about E20?

We love the village feel of E20 and can see how Get Living has supported the growth of this community with independent retailers.  With 25 acres of green space perfect for working out in, the amazing sporting facilities Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on the doorstep, we are looking forward to helping make East Village one of the healthiest places to live in London.


What does the future hold for 9Round?

Our club network set to double in this year alone! Our industry also has a bright future ahead with UK fitness popularity and standards of training service rise year on year. More now than ever, people are gravitating to functional, boutique training centres such as 9Round East Village.
