9Round Fitness has opened its ninth location in San Antonio, continuing the philosophy of a kickboxing-themed health regimen.

Owned by husband-and-wife trainers Manny and Ariel Zurita, the latest location at 23718 Interstate 10 West, Suite 109 in Dominion Springs Plaza, provides 30-minute workouts for all levels.

“We’re comprised of nine rounds, each round is three-minutes long. Not only is it cardio, but it’s also resistance training and interval training on a circuit-type format,” Manny Zurita said. “The longest you would ever have to wait is about three minutes until the next circuit starts.”

9Round, founded by International Kickboxing Federation Light Middleweight Kickboxing World Champion Shannon “The Cannon” Hudson 11 years ago, packs a punch with more than 600 gyms.

“Corporate develops the workout routine and they send it to us daily,” Zurita added. “Our jobs as trainers are to guide and motivate you.”

The center offers monthly memberships with an annual charge. First-timers get a free initial day.

After joining, subscribers receive a pair of gloves and hand wraps to bring for sessions.

Hours are 5:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3-8 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, 5:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3-7 p.m. Friday, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3-8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday.
