Hollywood Tans' proprietary booths and technologies produce consistent skin tones at 140 sites worldwide. Each location boasts an average of 15 upright, sanitary booths that allow customers to do jumping jacks as they build bronze in 8–11 minutes. For those who prefer to shade sans rays, Mystic spray vestibules banish pallor by misting pelts in aloe-rich custom shades that last up to seven days, and a proprietary line of tanning lotions helps maintain and maximize color between visits.
Sunsational Tanning enlivens wan complexions with a state-of-the-art array of UV and spray-tanning equipment. Step inside a private Mystic Tan at the Elkton, Middletown, and North East locations or an Autobronzer booth in Perryville, where an automated tanning system spritzes skin with precise, even coats of temporary color. During sessions, DHA and other bronzing agents infiltrate skin barriers, reading pores' private diaries to flawlessly impersonate their natural hues. More than 20 conventional tanning beds reign over each Sunsational location, emanating gentle to powerful levels of light rays to suit every complexion and skin sensitivity. Unlike doctors and demanding wall calendars, Sunsational Tanning does not require you to make appointments.
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.
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.
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.
