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.
Envy Nails' troop of nail-honing technicians crafts sleek, stylish digits with spa treatments, decorative nail designs, and a smooth finish of OPI polish. To kick things off, patrons remove their shoes and ventriloquist dummies so staffers can get to work buffing and filing nails on feet and hands, sending wayward cuticles back to their nail-base homes. Utilizing the grainy ministrations of a sea-salt scrub, aestheticians slough away roughened skin to unveil smooth epidermal expanses before guiding limbs into a paraffin dip, which works to seal in more moisture than Davy Jones's line of tupperware. Staffers then adorn nails with a seamless coat of OPI polish, creating smudge-free finger accessories in the client's color of choice. Patrons opting for nail designs can opt to bedeck their big toes and thumbs in a variety of spirals, flowers, or artistic depictions of sock tyranny.
The team of spa and medical professionals at Aura Laser Skin Care dispenses FDA-approved treatments whenever possible.

For newer procedures, the staff relies on advanced systems to soften skin, slim shapes, or eradicate troublesome moons orbiting newly glowing complexions.
Helming the staff at Body Boutique, Kimberly Fasano packs two decades of experience as a stylist and colorist in her tool belt. Her team tends to the hair, skin, nails, and muscles, with the goal of making each visitor look and feel their best.
