During this interview there are so many different ways to be inspired along with some great tips on getting into shape and dropping a few pounds. We recommend listening to the podcast and downloading the show if you can, but if not, here are some of the finer points:
Kaye Baron, owner of 3 locations here in town, and her General manager of the gyms, “Queen” Be sit down to talk about the Colorado Springs franchise but more importantly how it has changed general manager Be’s life.
Fitness is a powerful tool and has the ability to completely transform a person’s life and way of living. Be describes her story about how she lost over 80 pounds of fat and gained lean muscle, strength and confidence. During the interview we talk about the psychology behind exercise and how it’s the best therapy (usually cheaper too!) along with the 9Round fitness center goals and how they want to help make a lasting change, not only with the body, but with the community as well.
First, what is 9Round? 9Round is an interval based gym where the members move through 9 different rounds, each being 3 minutes long. The rounds are a mixture of kicking, punching, squatting, pushing and we can’t forget the infamous speed bag!
Takeaways and tips – During the show we received many great tips from both Be and Kaye and one of the most memorable is to just start. No matter what program or activity you choose to do starting is going to be the hardest part and also believe, believe in yourself and know that anyone has the power to change!

Also, here is the Smoothie recipe link and that recipe for homemade banana ice cream we talked about:
Banana Ice Cream Recipe:
1 Frozen Banana
1/4 Cup Almond Milk (or any milk)
2 Tsp. Cocoa Powder.
1 Tbsp. Agave Nectar.
Directions: Mix All Ingredients together in a food processor or blender. You may need to add a little more milk depending on how big your banana is (That’s what she said). Once you get a thick ice cream like texture you are ready to eat! Or you can freeze it for an hour for a thicker texture!
And as always remember – Stay Motivated!
