Everything we put into the business is what we are going to get out of it.

Both Stephen and Michelle Chung had reputable jobs in corporate America — Stephen as an analytical chemist for 20 years and Michelle as a chemical engineer for 10 years. But when the couple relocated from New Jersey to Pennsylvania, they grew tired of having their destinies dictated to them. Wanting to take control of their future, they decided to buy their own business.

The couple chose to purchase a 9Round fitness franchise, which offers variable 30-minute kickboxing and circuit-training workouts, aimed at getting people fit “nine rounds at a time.” Stephen explained, “There are no class times, so you can work out on your [own] schedule. The best part is a trainer is always there to help you, motivate you and keep you energized.”

The Chung’s entrepreneur coach recommended they contact Guidant Financial for help in financing their new venture. With Guidant at the wheel, they leveraged funds in their retirement accounts to invest in their franchise through a strategy known as Rollovers for Business Start-ups. This structure, which Stephen succinctly described as “smooth,” did not trigger a taxable distribution, saving them more money to invest in their business and their dream.

Both Stephen and Michelle now enjoy the fact that they’re in control of their destinies. “Everything we put into the business is what we are going to get out of it,” Stephen said.

The Cannonsburg 9Round, located at 3339 Washington Rd., will celebrate its grand opening this Saturday, Dec. 6, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, vendor giveaways, mini demonstrations, competitions and a prize wheel.
