Though Planet Beach Contempo Spa employs two spa consultants, neither lifts a finger to perform any treatments. That’s because all of the spa’s services—massage, teeth whitening, tanning, skincare, and even weight management—are taken care of by a fleet of automated booths and capsules. Clients slip into the calorie-burning SlimCapsule or the bronzing Mystic spray-tanning booth in complete privacy, and many of the machines feature voice instructions to guide them through each treatment.
It’s not uncommon to see large, sweaty men pulling trucks across the asphalt of The Training Center Gym’s parking lot. The gym is not only the training facility for many aspiring strongmen, but also the host of occasional competitions. To prepare athletes of every variety for big events, the staff offers powerlifting, bodybuilding, and sports-training services, plus boxing and boot-camp classes. For exercisers who want to go it alone, the facility stocks a plentitude of free weights and fitness machines from Life Fitness, Precor, Cybex, and Hammer Strength.
At Hollywood Tans, tanning experts provide dozens of routes to bronzed skin. Sleek, spacious vertical tanning booths deepen tans in eight minutes, and Mystic Tan booths spritz bodies with a custom bronzing serum that clings to skin for up to a week. Hollywood Tans’ line of shower gels, lotions, and tan amplifiers helps to preserve tans far more easily than never showering again. Staff members happily advise first-time tanners on the best skincare regimen or tanning tactics, and makeup artists accent golden skin with mineral makeup from the makeup bar.
Inside their colorful walls, the staffers of Electric Beach Tanning Company guide visitors toward their desired shades with UV or spray tanning and a handful of other services. Clients can lay out on powerful beds or stay standing for customized spray tans before a quick round of red-light or oxygen therapy reinvigorates the body. Beyond shelves and displays stocked with bronze-boosting lotions, a bank of red lockers stands to secure valuables and post-tanning cupcakes during services.
The image gurus at Body Images command a fleet of tanning beds in five different levels and the skills to artfully apply a custom, airbrushed glow. They stock their shelves with an array of lotions, balms, and gravies, including the entire MR International line of professional skincare products, such as iCandi and iTease, for a spectrum of desired results. To complement newly darkened skin tones, the team also offers slimming sauna capsules, teeth-whitening services, and a collagen bed, to encourage more youthful-looking skin.
From airbrush to mystic spray tans, 202 Tanning offers options for clients of different preferences. Get a golden glow however you like—sprayed-on or from a high-quality tanning bed, which is most effective while counting under your breath the number of beds that are on the sun. Airbrush and mystic tanning, meanwhile, provide UV-free alternatives without sacrificing the bronze look.
