Jamie and Evan M.

Tacoma Center YMCA

Newlyweds Jamie and Evan spend their quality time together in the unlikeliest of places: noon Boot Camp. Self-proclaimed loyalists to the lunchtime program, Jamie and Evan choose to sweat it off in Boot Camp because they love the instructors and enjoy spending their lunch hour together.

“We pride ourselves on having an active lifestyle,” said Evan. “We have tried other gyms, and the Y has everything we need, but the people keep us coming back.”

Both Jamie and Evan work in downtown Tacoma at desk jobs, which makes it convenient for them to workout at the Y so frequently. But the mission of the Y and their “workout family” keeps them invested beyond their exercise routines.

“Coming to the Y is a happy place for both of us,” said Jamie. “I look forward to it every day.”
