About Us 

Our Gym. Our Story. 

The Base Fitness is committed to building a happier and healthier world through hard work, determination, and discipline. We aren’t just any bodybuilding gym! We are a closely-knit community of military enthusiasts, first responders, healthcare professionals, and health-conscious men & women – preparing you physically and mentally to face the challenges confidently. 

We believe that the strength of our fitness community comes from our members. Regardless of where you are on your health and wellness journey, our doors are open for you. So many of our members are enthusiastic about “health,” happiness,” and overall “well-being,” not just bodybuilding. Our holistic approach toward healthiness and vigor makes us a truly unique gym in Tacoma.

The Base Fitness Difference

We bid adieu to boring and repetitive workouts at our specialized fitness center that solely targets muscle buildup. Instead, we focus on performance-based training that combines mindset advice, strength training, and conditioning. This ensures you are always at your peak of performance, full of vitality and enthusiasm. 

This is why our gym intrigues hard-charging members from the military base, local hospitals, visiting nurse community, police, and the fire department. And you’d love to know that almost half of our gym members are women. So, do not be intimidated by bodybuilding – target overall mental and physical well-being. 

One thing that sets us apart is our unique, warm, and community-like environment. That means you do not just learn from our trainers, but also from each other. Our members include battle-ready warriors and health enthusiasts who will gladly share their knowledge and experience to help you achieve your fitness goals. 

We guarantee you’ll not have this collaborative fitness training experience anywhere else in Tacoma.
