Bodystar Studios LLC is a private fitness studio, located in downtown Gig Harbor, next to Crescent Creek, near the intersection of North Harborview Dr and Vernhardsen Street. The principals are Christine Christoff, Michael Christoff and Raine Hatch.
Bodystar Studios training and massage is a culmination of two business entities coming together. Christoff Fitness training started as a sole proprietorship personal training business back in 2001... and Healing Rain massage which started in 2003.
Both businesses originated in Kirkland, and also more recently in Eastern Washington in Okanagan County. Over the years, Mike and Raine have decided to partner their talents and skills together to form Bodystar Fitness Studios.
We now are looking forward to serving the personal fitness needs of the community of Gig Harbor.
