At Final Results Fitness, patrons tone torsos in small-group classes led by skilled trainers utilizing close individualized attention and unconventional equipment. In one of four gym studios, a kettlebell trainer steels groups of 6–10 students, who hoist round weights in exercises that build strength and stamina and ready students for high-octane handbell recitals. In outdoor boot camp sessions, instructors drill bodies with pushups, jumping jacks, mountain climbs, and half-mile runs. Nimble feet jump on and over plyometric boxes while tenacious arms pull ropes and spar with sentient monster trucks. After air-horning metabolisms awaken in the 30-minute kettlebell or boot camp classes, nutrient-needy bodies can recover at the Juice Joint, where staff members concoct smoothies made with 100% crushed fruit and no added sugars or high-fructose corn syrup.
Serenity Junction guides clients toward bodily betterment with the help of an eclectic staff and an arsenal of high-tech equipment. Hop aboard the Whole-Body Advanced Vibration Exercise (WAVE) system and assume an exercise position, such as a sit-up or squat, to provoke up to 3,000 muscular contractions per minute. WAVE places minimal stress on joints, making it suitable for everyone from professional athletes to people recovering from injury to weekend warriors simply training for recreational gladiatorial combat. Throughout the 15-minute workout sessions, the machine's Intuitive Feedback System provides in-session data and aids exercisers in their quest for improved strength, flexibility, and circulation.

Luminosity helps its patrons glow, bronzing skin with airbrush tans and brightening smiles with advanced equipment. Sleek booths or skilled technicians apply sun-free tans to bronze clients without the dangers of spending time outside, where someone could just steal your shoes for fun. In-office teeth-whitening services speedily dissolve stains with LED-activated gels, while at-home kits and compact pens offer convenient touch-ups on the go.
Customers of OrTanic Sun Spa emerge from private rooms with skin glowing like the sun's lips. The staff consults with clients ahead of time, taking stock of skin type, current skin color, and target shade, then guides them to the level of tanning that will fit their needs. UV-tanning sessions take place in stand-up or lie-down chambers—available in four different intensity levels—which tan skin more effectively than a nap on a giant spotlight. For UV-free tanning, the staff mists skin with the Bronze Biologic airbrush solution, made from purified water and tanning elements derived from plant sources.
LA Bronze Ultra Luxe Tanning Studios service tanners on the go and provides a respite for those looking to relax. Inside stand-up booths, clients remain on their feet while up to 60 bulbs create a 360-degree tan.

Those looking to enhance their tans can purchase power lotions, bronzers, accelerators, and cooling lotions from the salon’s collection of tanning products.
