  • GirlDiver
    Cindy Ross was an unlikely person to found a scuba-diving school. Told by a commercial diving instructor at 19 that she was too small to scuba, Ross didn’t begin to explore the sport until she was in her 30s. Earning certification was a trial, and she spent her first four dives lugging 80-pound gear in the snow up and down a massive hill—and, adding insult to injury, the men’s equipment didn’t even fit properly. But the fifth dive changed everything. Held in Puget Sound, Ross felt a calling to the location's green waters and white anemones, and since then, the aquanaut has frolicked with such neighbors as a 1,200-pound sea lion, hundreds of Canadian seals, and a giant Pacific octopus. At Scuba Shoppe, Ross and her team of instructors immerse guests of all ages in the sport of scuba. Try Scuba classes held in the center's 84-degree pool familiarize students with their equipment before they plunge into the water to practice. Alternatively, an open-water certification program from Scuba Schools International expounds on these pool sessions with shore dives in the rolling waters of Puget Sound, which let students hone their skills in a more realistic environment or find a dolphin pod to adopt them. As part of this training, they will visit the den of a resident Giant Pacific Octopus. For the more advanced, Scuba Shoppe provides training for specialty certifications, including rescue diving, night diving, and underwater digital photography. An onsite dive shop outfits customers with all the necessary dive gear and accessories.

  • Lee Brothers Martial Arts School
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Women-only fitness classes. If you've never thrown a punch or kick in your life, or it's been awhile. And the thought of something new sounds intimidating, then this a great place to start. Learn basic skills needed to properly execute kicks and punches while burning calories and having fun. Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged? We mix every class up. One day it can be all technique with boxing and another day kicking. Each workout includes HIIT (high intense interval training) and 15 min of ab exercises that work specific parts of the ab muscle. We train with light weights to help increase strength. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I have been a practicing Martial Artist for 20 years and I wanted to do something that incorporated what I had been training in boxing and some MMA. But I wasn't interested in the belt system and I wanted it to be a little more fast pace. What do you love most about your job? What I love most is the community that we have created in the classes. I also love watching women grow stronger and confident as each kick gets better and each punch becomes their own.
