[[m:####Thorndale Fitness & Tanning
A giant yellow barbell spans the wall above the Bar Bell Café, where protein muffins and smoothies await those seeking a boost post-workout. During the facility's more than 20 years in business, the staff at Thorndale has learned that these little extras keep customers enthused about fitness. Certified trainers helm one-on-one sessions on the same sprawling gym floor that houses ellipticals, treadmills, and weightlifting equipment. They also lead group-fitness classes in such disciplines as strength training and aerobics. The facilities round out with standup and horizontal tanning booths tucked into private treatment rooms.:m]]
After a career in the tattoo industry, Mandy Sauler, who's known for her steady hand and ability to create fine lines, turned to permanent makeup and founded Captivating Cosmetics. Today, she employs seven years of micropigmentation experience and has worked with all kinds of skin types and ethnicities to create natural-looking eyebrows, lip color, and eyeliner, as well as camouflage scars, birthmarks, and outdated SAT cheat sheets. Mandy's teammate, Theresa Weston, draws upon her three years of micropigmentation experience and her background as a makeup artist working with industry leaders such as Clinique, Bare Escentuals, and Origins.
Roughly 5,000 pounds of Himalayan salt carpet the floor of The Salt Vault's relaxing treatment room, where soundtracks of waves crashing overlaid with instrumental music create the ambiance of a pink indoor beach. Clients unwind in the room's zero-gravity lounge chairs as they breathe in the dry salt air, which some have found to ease ailments of the sinuses and skin. Large salt lamps cast a soothing glow on those searching for relief from breathing troubles and skin irritations.
Hollywood Tans gilds epidermises with a host of high-tech equipment. The open design of the high-pressure Sunboard bed gives patrons room to breathe, and its filters catch most stray UVB rays, giving tans longevity. For quicker bronzing, vertical booths build tans in 8–11 minutes, and custom airbrush tans and Mystic spray options bypass UV altogether like a tree on a hunger strike.
The full-service salons are open seven days a week and offer waxing, makeup application, and UV-free red-light therapy, a treatment designed to stimulate collagen production and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and cellulite.
