The viewers of Evening Magazine had 131 choices for Western Washington’s best fitness instructor of 2012, but Sheree James and her team at Shake It Off Dance Fitness came out on top. It’s no surprise, considering the staff turns dance fitness into full-on festivals of fitness, spurring on rooms full of exercisers through Latin-inspired Zumba dance classes, as well as hip-hop and urban striptease aerobics. It’s not all about cardio at Shake It Off, though; instructors also lead Hot Fusion, during which students shimmy and shake to '80s hip-hop music.
At SNAP Fitness 24/7's network of gyms, members can work out in the morning, the evening—or even at 4 a.m. Per the gym's name, it's always open, and stocked with top-of-the-line cardio and strength-training equipment. Its team also hosts yoga classes, Zumba dance parties, and Pilates sessions that can help build long, lean muscle. Online workout plans and meal plans complement the brick-and-mortar facilities, providing clients with customizable guidelines for how to live a healthy life.
The staff at Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic believe that, because it's the body's communication center, the spine’s condition can affect the health of the entire body. During treatment sessions, chiropractors correct the alignment of vertebrae with up-to-date techniques—such as motion palpitation, which detects dysfunctional joints, and active release, which treats overused muscles with motion techniques—that are gentler than past methods and more effective than propping patients up with puppet strings. Other corrective techniques, such as exercises and massage therapy, retrain the muscles to support correct alignment. The clinic specializes in rehabilitating clients with injuries from accidents and other traumas, though they can help patients of all ages and backgrounds maintain good spinal health.
At Xtra Fitness, there's never downtime to wonder what machines are free or which exercise you should be doing. That's because the gym doesn't have memberships—it's entirely dedicated to the X-Circuit training program, led by owners Steve and Vanessa Herrick. The program puts students through a 45-minute circuit that incorporates both cardio drills and resistance work, challenging them to heft kettlebells, ropes, and their own bodyweight in between running or plyometrics. Two degrees of intensity accommodate guests of different fitness levels, and the trainers closely supervise each circuit, ensuring that everyone gets individual attention without having to raise their hand during a pushup. To stave off boredom, Steve and Vanessa also develop new circuits regularly.
Licensed massage therapist, personal trainer, and nutritional consultant, Karla—who has also worked with chiropractors and naturopathic healers—has experience with a myriad of wellness programs. That’s why she founded fitSpa, a wellness co-op that tends to all aspects of health and beauty. From healing massage and body work, to wellness-building personal training, Zumba, and metabolic conditioning, as well as Hatha and power yoga, Karla and her staff restore bodies to a natural balance.
