The fastest known method for weight loss was introduced during the French Revolution with the invention of the guillotine diet. Today’s Groupon gives you a slightly less drastic but equally effective method: for $39, you get one month of fitness classes at Tacoma Fitness BootCamp in Fife (a $247 value). Twelve weekly classes are scheduled as follows:
- Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings: 6 a.m. and 9:15 a.m.
- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights: 6 p.m.
- Saturdays: 9:30 a.m.
Promising weekly personal-training sessions, nutritional counseling, and careful exercise guidance, the trainers at Tacoma Fitness BootCamp do everything possible to hold weight losers accountable and keep them motivated, short of forcibly inhabiting their minds. A gauntlet of challenging and effective exercises will help even the portliest couch potato carve through layers of unnecessary mass to create the perfectly sculpted french fry within. Through a regimen of rope pulling, jack jumping, circular-wall running, and a few surprises, men hampered by the burden of an enormous stomach keg will replace it with a chiseled 24-pack, and women will banish baby fat to the stork nest from whence it came. With a month’s exposure to boot-camp tactics, people of all ages and fitness levels can tone their bodies, slash through excess fat, and increase self-confidence.
Tacoma Fitness BootCamp was founded by successful fitness fanatic and personal trainer Jeff Jowers after he beheld it in a dream. Boot camp is not a miracle program, though. It takes hard work, dedication, a positive attitude, and perhaps a low-level functional insanity to achieve the stuff that before/after shots are made of. That said, the exercises employed by Jowers and company are designed to melt fat faster than butter on a hot sidewalk and flatten flabby abs like a spatula getting run over by a road roller. Besides streamlining your own chassis at Tacoma BootCamp, you might want to buy extra Groupons for any friends who can’t even get through a round of Wii Bowling without gasping desperately for breath.
Jowers’s training grabs five stars from Google Mappers, and past clients give good testimonials: > * Not once did I feel like the fat kid in the bunch ,every one is so supportive and straight forward, I actually look forward to going.You owe it to your self to try this program ,you will be blown away by how good you feel. – hairsmythng, Google Maps > * Very personal, very motivating, very different than any training I’ve ever had.

Grit City Fitness and Performance
Sunlight pours onto the exposed-brick walls of the Grit City Fitness and Performance private training facility, where exercise rings dangle from the ceiling and colorful weights line the shelves. Throughout the week, the facility is a flurry of motion as students of all ages and fitness levels undergo high-intensity exercise routines as well as personal- and team-training sessions. Personal-training sessions adhere to the specialty program designed by certified personal trainer and fitness aficionado Jeff Jowers, who combines fat-burning exercises with nutritional guidance to banish unwanted pounds more efficiently than traditional workouts or covering yourself in helium balloons. In team-training sessions, Jowers and his staff bring the same level of intensity, adding an element of teamwork that encourages all students to celebrate each other's successes, work harder to achieve goals, and hit new personal records.
