The tanning methods at Infinite Tan not only eschew orange streaks, but also avoid unnatural chemicals. Guests can visit the salon or opt for its mobile services at their own homes to acquire tawny hues by way of professional-grade HVLP spray. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete and results in an even, natural-looking tan.
Visits to Cabana Tan Spa often begin in conversation. The expertly trained staff here can answer virtually any tanning question, recommend lotions, and help clients figure out which of the five levels of tanning beds they need. Depending on factors such as skin tone and the desired glow, sessions might wind up in either stand-up or lie-down beds. The tanning experts also direct clients to the airbrush rooms, where technicians gild bodies with organic tanning solutions, using the airbrush machine to contour bodies and add subtle muscle definition.
The 3,400-square-foot facility encompasses rooms for laser teeth whitening and massage, too. For the latter, massage therapist Paula Ranchel uses modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage to address issues such as arthritis, carpal tunnel, and really wanting a massage.
Hollywood Tan's 11 locations help Midwesterners stay tan year-round?even under their parkas. They accomplish this using equipment such as standup capsules, tanning beds, and Mystic Tan booths. Off to the side, lotions stand at attention on shelves, ready to help clients maintain their tan and keep their skin moisturized.
Envious Tanning Salon & Spa is more like a luxurious day spa than a traditional tanning studio. While it does offer classic beds and spray tanning, that's only the tip of the iceberg. Guests might have their teeth whitened and muscles massaged in one visit. Or, they might try to tone muscles on a vibrating FIT Machine or via infrared heat. This is because the spa has harnessed several forms of cutting-edge technology, which allows clients to customize their beautifying experiences in private beds and chambers.
Against vivid, sky-blue walls that evoke memories of beachside relaxation, certified masters and ambassadors of Smart Tanning stand ready to bronze pale human skin with top-of-the-line equipment. The facility caters to customers' individual needs with warmed Mystic HD booths and the latest UV equipment, including Soltron's high-pressure Shark bed, complete with cozy mattress, or Ergoline's Sundash, a standup booth that allows patrons to tan while practicing marching-band routines.
Zip Fitness's staff strives to keep intimidation from creeping in to each of the five gyms. To welcome all exercisers—even those who have never had gym memberships before—Gym Geniuses stroll through each location donning bright-red shirts that signal their availability to help guests operate the various machines and guide them in drafting fitness goals and coming up with routines for the day. They've stocked each location with strength equipment from brands such as Precor and Life Fitness, and a guided strength circuit's 30-minute full-body workout takes the guesswork out of toning physiques. Rows of cardio equipment include treadmills, ellipticals, and upright and recumbent bikes, along with rowing machines and StairMaster step mills. For stretching and ab work, bands, balls, and body bars abound, and free weights include dumbbells, barbells, and tamed school bells.
Gold memberships unlock additional perks, such as unlimited access to Hex II tanning booths and the ActivTrax online fitness and nutrition coach, which plots out workouts and offers nutrition tools tailored to each user's goals, from slimming down to having the flexibility to comb your hair with your feet.
