There’s a new kickboxing gym in Old Town.

On Saturday, 9Round Fitness will hold a grand opening ceremony at its new location at 123 N. Pitt Street (suite 150) in Old Town.

Franchise owners Liana and Zach Sansom opened last month, offering 30-minute full body kickboxing workouts with no set appointment times necessary.

“9Round is built to work for any fitness level,” the owners wrote on Facebook. “Zero kickboxing experience is required to have a kickin’ good workout and feel stronger in 30 minutes.”

It costs between $150 and $170 for monthly membership, and otherwise about $25 to drop into any given class. Customers in Alexandria can get a free introductory session by texting “9Round” to 703-910-0885.

There are more than 600 9Round Fitness franchises in 18 countries, and the Old Town location is the seventh in Virginia. There are also gyms in Springfield, Manassas, Richmond, Charlottesville, Yorktown and Virginia Beach. The company was founded in 2008 by kickboxer Shannon “The Cannon” Hudson.

9Round Fitness is open from 6 a.m. to noon and from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday and is closed on Sunday.
