I cannot believe it has been one month since the new 9Round Santa Clara opened it’s doors! April flew by so quickly, and I had so much fun getting fit at the new 9Round! In case you missed my post about 9 Round back in January, it is a full body workout studio where you can get a complete workout in 30 minutes. Love!
As you know, I enjoy working out. My fitness routine typically includes spin classes, hikes, treadmill days, step classes, cardio kickboxing, swimming; and anything I can drop into. But, these types of workouts run for 60 minutes, and with my busy schedule, it has been really difficult this year for me to fit these workouts into my crazy schedule. When I heard about the new 9Round Santa Clara, I was excited for a 30 minute workout!
Do you see the TV screen in the photo above? That is a heart-rate monitor which lets you know which zone you are currently in. My knick-name is “Shark,” so as you can see, I was in the red zone when this photo was taken. The ideal zone I should be in for most of my workout is the yellow zone. This is a great tool because it helps you regulate your workout, and adjust, so that you can optimize your results. After you workout, the system sends you an email with a recap of how much time you spent in each zone, and how many calories you burned. It really helps you understand your workout! Love that!
This is a workout which fits into a busy schedule. It’s easy to say you’re too busy to workout on any given day, especially when travel time to and from the gym is typically 30 minutes; and the workout itself is 60 minutes. This is what makes 9Round so fabulous, you cannot make excuses for time! This is a full body workout that can be completed in 30 minutes. It targets all the major muscle groups, and includes cardio interval training too.
I included 9Round workouts 2-3 times each week in April. I loved how much time they saved, and the fact that I couldn’t make any excuses about not having time to workout. As a result, I lost two pounds in April! Yay!
FYI: I lost those two pounds without dieting. I still ate a little bit over my recommended calorie count. Results will be different for everyone-so don’t assume you can eat anything you want and still lose weight, it’s usually a combination of fitness and nutrition. These were my results.
The 9Round workout doesn’t get boring. If you get bored of always doing the same thing, that won’t happen at 9Round. There are 9 circuits which a personal trainer leads you through. Everyday, the workout changes. So you rarely do the same thing twice. I love how the workout is always different, it keeps me on my toes! Plus, all of the trainers are so nice, supportive, and fun to talk to! Love that!
I’m looking forward to continuing to workout at 9Round Santa Clara, and to up my fitness level!

*Please excuse my sweaty face in these photos-I was having fun and working hard! My beautiful teenage daughter, and my 10-year-old son, took these photos. They did a pretty good job didn’t they!
Thanks for stopping by!
