Northern Ireland’s largest hotel will soon be punching well above its weight as a new exercise business sets up shop, Ulster Business can reveal.

Fitness franchise 9Round has been growing in the UK at a steady pace, and will open its doors later this month at the Grand Central Hotel in Belfast city centre.

Rather than running on a set schedule, a new 9Round session starts every three minutes, allowing a new workout every day, including a range of weight resistance, cardio and core-strength training.

The company is one of the first brands in the UK to utilise wearable heart-rate technology, and class participants wear heart rate monitors, which are hooked up to a big screen in the gym.

It’s understood 9Round Belfast will be opening in May 2019. Commercial property firm Osborne King acted on behalf of the landlord, Hastings Hotels, to secure the new tenant.
