Since opening their first spa—Sassy SunTan & Oxygen Bar—Heather and Adam Larribas have added a second sunning sanctuary called Sassy Tan & Spa. In addition to providing tanning services, the original location features an aromatherapeutic oxygen bar, while its counterpart on Star Ranch Road offers massage therapy. Visitors to the oxygen bar inhale air that's 90–95% oxygen, as opposed to the 21% usually found in everyday air. Meanwhile, aromatherapy scents such as vanilla, piña colada, and orange bolster the energizing effects of the vapor as soothing eucalyptus scents attract curious koalas.
Both locations offer bronzing via UV beds as well as airbrush gear. In accordance with a mission statement prioritizing cleanliness and comfort, staffers stock each private treatment room with tissues, water, deodorant, and candy. Here, tanners bask in the glow of beds equipped with varying levels of intensity, or close their eyes as a cloud of bronzing mist settles on their skin during an airbrush tan.

At locations throughout the world, Fit Body Bootcamp's instructors share a common goal: to guide clients toward their fitness and weight-loss goals through regimented training programs. At the Colorado Springs Location, head trainer Nathan Cragg combines the techniques he gained from 12 years of army training with Fit Body Bootcamp's tried-and-true fitness strategies. He and his team of trainers lead group classes that integrate cardio with resistance training, strength training, and light alligator wrestling.

In addition to motivating clients to work their bodies, Nathan also empowers them with healthy eating guidelines.
City Ice Pavilion's NHL-sized rooftop rink is open to ice-capaders year-round. That's thanks, in part, to the large weatherproof dome that curves over the the interior and gives it a cavernous feel, much like the ancient ice skating rinks found in pyramids. Aspiring skaters can take lessons, then try out their new skills during public skate sessions or adult or youth hockey leagues. Besides classes and open skating times, the Ice Pavilion also hosts a wide range of skating-themed events, including a regular morning coffee club for experienced adult skaters.
Part tech-reliant med spa, part peaceful wellness center, Skin Bliss Health & Wellness Spa delivers results without losing sight of the client's experience of each treatment, which are overseen by medical providers. The vengeful beams of an IPL machine and radio frequency lasers rain down on acne and blemishes, and antioxidants and acids derived from fruits strip faces of dead skin cells during medical-grade chemical peels. In addition to cosmetic services, the center also treats clients to aromatherapy massages, sells nutritional supplements, and distributes healthy recipes.
The animating philosophy at The Atmosphere Day Spa is that detoxification is the key to holistic beauty. This aversion to potentially harmful chemicals is why the center's services use naturally produced creams, masks, scrubs, and lotions. The practice is particularly conspicuous in the lineup of facials, which incorporate everything from lemons and flowers to pomegranates and chocolate in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Haircare treatments, including cuts, clear gloss, and relaxers, leave locks lustrous.
