For more than 15 years, family owned and operated Masterclean's team of professional cleaners has been scouring homes and businesses with an array of dirt-defying services. Meticulous cleaners travel through domiciles with eco-friendly pet- and child-safe cleaning products, leaving unblemished swaths of carpet in their wake. Piping-hot steam laden with enzyme-based cleaners and deodorizers then billows from a truck-mounted unit, pulling trod-in grime from carpet fibers. When they aren't scrubbing rugs, techs turn their attention to sullied upholstery, windows, drapes, and air ducts. They also specialize in water-damage restoration for homes that have been flooded by a storm or stream of tears caused by a sappy rom-com. Cleaners can grease their elbows Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Capsules do all the work at Aquarius Tanning Salon & High Tech Spa, where high-tech equipment takes the place of spa technicians. Clients step into tanning beds outfitted with Wolff lamps to turn their skin a bronzer hue, or lay down inside of the slim capsule to boost their metabolism and burn calories. Aquarius's other booths hydrate the skin, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and mist UV-free spray tans.
The highly-trained technicians at Jiffy Lube conduct signature service oil changes on vehicles as well as preventive maintenance and repair services. Their tire rotations, transmission services, and radiator inspections are performed with strict care and attention to detail, allowing cars to zoom out of the facility with the youthful exuberance they had back when they were little Hot Wheels.
Colorado Springs Lipo Laser zaps fat from waistlines to give clients a leaner look. During treatments, a laser dissolves the fat deposits just under the skin. That fat is then ejected from the body, leaving torsos taut and smooth. The clinic recommends clients continue pursuing a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen to maintain the weight loss.
For the fourth race on its 2012 tour, the American Drag Racing League returns to Gateway Motorsports Park's 1/8-mile drag strip for the first time since 2010. Piloting dragsters separated into seven all-professional racing classes, from Top Sportsman to Pro Extreme, drivers rocket down the track so quickly that they finish each race younger than when they began. The SuperCar Showdown—a new feature on the 2012 circuit—pits the latest consumer automobiles against one another in no-holds-barred drag race free from the usual handicaps, performance restrictions, and rules against fiddling with rival drivers' preset radio stations. After reopening under the helm of former Indy driver Curtis Francois, Gateway Motorsports Park has stepped up its devotion to motorsports of all kinds, looking beyond the drag strip to fill its amphitheater-style seats with fans of everything from hot rods to world-class stock cars.
Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags. Class times and dates vary based on each location: Woodinville, Seattle, Gig Harbor, Puyallup and Lacey.
