CBRE announces that 9Round, the world’s fastest-growing 30-minute kickboxing fitness studio, has signed a lease for 1,200 square feet at 1517 W. Hebron Parkway in the Victory Shops II at Hebron retail center in Carrollton.

9Round offers members a 30-minute, full-body workout with personal trainers to provide guidance through each of the 9 rounds.

I am excited for the future ahead for 9Round Victory Shops II at Hebron.”

The studio is set to open in December. Membership pre-sales are available now through the 9Round website. This will be Mr. Scott’s second 9Round location in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. He also owns the 5017 W. Plano Parkway location in Plano, Texas.
