More than 40 years ago, the four Machado brothers—Roger, Rigan, Carlos, and John—founded RCJ Machado Jiu-Jitsu to pass on the Brazilian martial-arts knowledge they acquired from the late jiu-jitsu master Carlos Gracie. Although the Machado brothers' legacy now spans TV and movie appearances, plus work with celebrities ranging from Chuck Norris to Usher, their school still takes new martial artists of all ages through the fundamentals and beyond. Some locations also include classes in kickboxing, MMA, and capoeira—a Brazilian blend of martial arts and dance.

To quote co-owner Christian Washington, Paramount Strength & Conditioning “pretty much trains you to excel in a man vs. orc battle from Lord of the Rings.” Christian began building Paramount’s strength-training philosophy while serving overseas in a Navy response team. Since then, he’s sharpened and refined his program with assistance from fellow trainers Kevin Becker and Stephanie Washington. Students learn the finer points of squats, deadlifts, and the snatch during classes that fuse competitive-style lifts with interval training and bare-knuckle tickle fights. With her keen understanding of what it’s like to be a woman in the weight room, co-owner Stephanie Washington created the gym’s signature Beauty By Barbell class, that relies on unique exercises and offers an approach geared towards ladies.
