As he was growing up, Isaac Ho wore a sweater outside for all seasons in hopes of disguising a heavy frame. When he did shed his unwanted pounds through exercise, he still felt somewhat unfulfilled—the routines to which he had devoted countless hours didn't strike him as efficient or fun. He began to experiment with fitness techniques, amassing a list of methods that produced results without sacrificing safety or endorsing quick fixes, such as wearing water wings under your clothes. His research led him to become a certified personal trainer and weight-loss specialist, and his drive to educate others has inspired doctors, gym owners, and fellow fitness experts alike. Today, Isaac runs BeFit Tacoma as the culmination of his trials and subsequent discoveries. He enlists other personal trainers based both on their skills and their personalities, believing that charisma goes a long way toward encouraging clients. Inside the private facility, programs from boot camp to semi-private training spark a metamorphosis in guests. Isaac receives clients at any initial fitness level and guides them on their quest to lose weight, tone muscle, and eat healthily, assuring them that "it's not where you start, it's where you finish."
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.
Whether they are coaching athletes or leading boot-camp classes, the trainers at The Xtreme 18 reach beyond verbal motivation to inspire their students with individual attention, specialized training, and a community support system. Inside their gym, a trove of advanced fitness equipment challenges muscles to rethink monotonous routines. The ThunderBell—a modified dumbbell with handles on either end—can act as a kettlebell, barbell, or scepter for summoning Thor's strength during weightlifting workouts. Staff members might also attach resistance bands to various body parts for agility and plyometric drills, limbering and strengthening physiques for a boost in sports performance.
Though its gear strikes many as high-tech, The Xtreme 18's setting is accessible and family focused. Classes grouped by age welcome students as young as 6 to tackle bodyweight exercises and endurance trials, pushing them toward a lifetime of healthy habits and fitness.

"Discipline is an act of freedom." United Fitness Center's motto sums up the facility's approach to working out. By offering up high-intensity classes that challenge its members' willpower, agility, and endurance, the center pushes participants to dedicate themselves to life-changing fitness. The center furthers this end goal by incorporating the Fittest Warrior system, which tracks members' workout routines and nutrition, ensuring they are overhauling their lifestyles rather than sending their clone, whose DNA has been spliced with a bodybuilder's, to the gym.
