A Rochester gym is now giving the Med City a double kick with a new second location.
Daniel and Norma Flores opened their second 9Round Gym on June 10 in Suite 104 at 3270 19th St. NW. That's in the 19th Street Business Park.
"This is area is really growing," said Norma Flores of the new gym. "We have a lot of members from Byron, Mantorville and Kasson. This is a good spot for people to stop before or after work."
The fitness franchise offers a 30-minute circuit workout based on boxing and kickboxing training. The workouts involve aerobic, anaerobic and strength training, tailored to each members' ability.
Members can come in at anytime and be guided through the nine workout stations or "rounds," including kettle bells, jump ropes and lots of punching and kicking.
"The workout changes every day and there's always a trainer to help and encourage," she said.
In 2013, the Flores opened their first 9Round Gym in the River Center Plaza. They later moved that original gym to Suite 101 in 2571 Clare Lane NE. That's in the Century Business Plaza.
They now have about 300 members. In addition to the two owners, 9Round has a staff of six trainers.
