Heather "The Hero" Hudson
COO & Co-Founder
Heather has been with 9Round since inception in 2008 and is the COO and Co-Founder. She is a black belt in Shotokan Karate and grew up with a passion for fitness and overall wellness. She has always been active and enjoyed fitness, but she found herself needing more results out of her exercise program after having two children. After falling in love with kickboxing for fitness, 9Round has been the avenue Heather used to take her fitness to a new level. Her passion is now helping others realize that their fitness goals are never too high. Her favorite part of the 9Round Fitness program is the ability to assist beginners and advanced fitness levels individually, yet all at the same time.
Her fondness for helping others doesn't stop in the gym. Heather is also extremely dedicated to helping the 9Round franchisees reach their financial goals. Heather supports the franchising company with a strong focus on communications to owners, marketing, and the development of scalable systems for the 9Round owners. She sets high standards for herself and the 9Round company, and she offers support to the franchisees at every level.
Heather especially enjoys supporting women through their fitness and business journeys and plans to author a book that delves into her philosophies on these topics in the near future.
She is the mother of two children and lives by the belief that "man becomes what he thinks about most,” so keeping a proper mind set is the key in life.
