Enterprising Women, the nation’s only women-owned magazine published exclusively for women business owners, has listed 9Round co-founder and COO Heather Hudson as an Enterprising Women of the Year.
According to Enterprising Women, the Enterprising Women of the Year Awards is an annual tribute to the world’s top women entrepreneurs. To win, nominees must demonstrate that they have fast-growth businesses, mentor or actively support other women and girls involved in entrepreneurship, and stand out as leaders in their communities.
“I am truly honored to be recognized by Enterprising Women as a Women of the Year,” said Hudson, in a press release. “Women all over the world are breaking glass ceilings in their respective industries, and it is a privilege to be selected with such an amazing group of women.”
Award winners were divided into seven categories, with Hudson named as an Enterprising Women of the Year in the “over $10 million and up to $25 million in annual revenues” category.
“The recipients of the 2017 Enterprising Women of the Year Awards represent an amazing group of women entrepreneurs from across the United States and as far away as The Netherlands, South Africa, Uganda, the United Kingdom and Canada,” said Monica Smiley, the publisher and CEO of Enterprising Women, in the press release. “We could not be more proud to recognize their accomplishments as CEOs of fast-growth companies, community leaders, and role models and mentors to other women and girls.”
9Round has grown to more than 450 locations throughout 40 states and nine countries. More than half of those clubs have opened in the last 24 months alone, including the company’s first locations in Australia, Japan, Jordan, Mexico, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom.
9Round workouts consist of nine, three-minute stations of activities that include cardio, weight training, abdominal exercises and kicks and punches on 100-pound, double-end, upper cut and speed bags. Members have a 30-second active break between rounds to recover.
