A new gym is opening at 123 N Pitt St.
International fitness franchise 9Round will be moving in as part of a larger redevelopment of Tavern Square, four 1960s era office buildings located in the center of Old Town which include 421 King St., 110 N Royal St., and 132 N Royal St.
9Round workouts are unique for the fact that there are no class times and members can show up any time during operating hours. An instructor is always available to guide members through a full-body workout that involves spending three minutes at a time at nine different training stations.
The first two stations utilize dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, jump ropes and other equipment in functional fitness moves. Rounds 3-8 involve boxing and kickboxing moves. The last round involves moves specifically for the abs and core.
According to LinkedIn, Zachary Sansom will operate the new 9Round Pitt Street location. He currently operates a location in Springfield (6410 Brandon Ave.). A 9Round location was previously located in Alexandria in Belle View Shopping Center but it appears to have closed permanently during the COVID-19 pandemic.
An opening date for the new 9Round location has not been set but you can visit the studio’s webpage to sign up for updates and exclusive offers.
