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…
