FIGHTING ANXIETY WITH 9ROUND KICKBOX FITNESS

Anxiety has played a huge role in my life since my early 20s, and I knew it wasn’t going to go away easily. I learned that my mind is a powerful thing. After battling with anxiety and damn near depression, I realized that I have 100% control of how I handle any situation. There were days where I didn’t want to get up to go to work, run small errands or even talk to people. All the normal tasks that everyone goes through felt exhausting for me. I tend to let my frustration build up throughout the day, and I would start to feel my anxiety take over my mind and body.
After my doctor prescribed me medication to help ease my anxiety, I decided to look into other alternatives to help my situation. Exercise was the first thing recommended. I’ve tried yoga, meditating and of course, hitting the gym every day. However, it never really stuck with me. I still felt like my worries were bottled up. When I tried 9Round Kickbox Fitness for the first time, I instantly felt empowered and unstoppable.
SWEAT IS THE BEST ANTI-DEPRESSANT
You may ask what’s the difference between working out at the gym (something I’ve been doing for years) vs. working out at 9Round.
I’m always alone every time I work out at a regular gym, whereas I’m always with a trainer who guides me and keeps me focused at 9Round. I like my alone time, but it could be very mundane and unmotivating.
I can go to 9Round whenever I want, just like the gym. There are no class times and each round starts every 3 minutes.
My fitness style is strength/resistance training, and I love that 9Round incorporates it in their 30 minute sessions. I still get to focus on building strength through resistance while burning around 500 calories each time I go!
A regular gym can be crowded and occupied with members who take too long on machines. 9Round is filled with people who are ready to put in work. You never have to wait for anyone to finish at a station.
I’m happy that I look forward to fighting my anxiety every time I step foot in a 9Round.
I know it’s a fight I’ll ALWAYS win.
Special thanks to 9Round!
