My name is Damion and I am the franchise owner of a 9Round in Bloomington, MN. 9Round is a 30-minute, full-body workout with zero class time, alternating daily workouts and trainers that help you every step of the way. I have helped people from ages 11 to 66 reach their goals of getting stronger and/or losing weight. Most of my members call it therapy. I just like giving people the opportunity to workout on their own time and to push themselves to the level they didn't think was possible.
Bloomington has never had anything like this before and, since 9Round opened, members have come and gone. It's part of business; I'm still learning. Not everything is for everyone! But the members that have been here from day one love everything about this place and they would be devastated if I closed down.
In the last few months, I made the rent. But the management company sent out a March statement that showed back taxes from the previous year. I had planned to pay the back taxes, but I was not expecting to pay the entirety of the taxes in one statement. From this statement, I have been trying to catch up every month, with little success. Your donations will help pay the rent and buy supplies the members need while in the gym, such as wraps and gloves. That being said, the management company has only given me until August 16th to pay the taxes--or they're going to proceed with the next step.
I've giving up a lot to make sure my business stays alive: I take the bus everywhere I go and I work 60 hours every week to make sure things run smoothly. This is my passion: helping others achieve their goals and doing it with a smile on my face every time.
People always say that starting a business is tough and you have to stay positive because you will have ups and downs. But I love coming to work everyday, knowing that I'm helping someone feel better about themselves. With your help, I will be able to continue my dream and help my clients acheive their dreams as well.

9Round Bloomington and its members!
So proud to see how well this campaign it doing! We wrote an article all about you! https://www.uhelp.com/blog/2017/08/22/The-Importance-of-a-Campaign-Team-Stay-Positive-and-Do-It-with-a-Smile/
Damion, you're a nice person and a very good trainer! I hope your business flourishes and you and your team continue to help people!
I NEED my work outs at 9Round! I used to run marathons and the knees gave out. 9Round allows me to work out and feel like I did something good for me in just 30 minutes!
Love this place!
This is a great place to workout and meet new people.
Great gym and excellent owner!
Great people, awesome workouts!
Love it there! Best with the campaign.
As someone who's been going to 9Round since late last year, I see how hard Damion works every day and I would be really disappointed if our community lost this gym. I encourage everyone else to consider giving what they can. We're in your corner, man!
Keep punching and kicking, Damion!
God has you in the palm of his hand and his timing is impeccable! Boom!
This place is amazing! Has helped me a lot. Let's help him now.
