Tanning Salons in Mercer Island

Select Local Merchants

Each of Seattle Sun Tan's 39 locations spans between 2,000 and 4,000 square feet of space dedicated solely to the art of un-sunbathing. Washington-state tanners strut down immaculate hallways dotted with framed original paintings and contemporary artwork before settling into private rooms where they may acquire their desired shade while enjoying the sounds of their own music or prerecorded subliminal messages piped in through the iPod dock perched near each bed. The Smart Tan?certified staff guides clients in selecting which of the five levels of UV bed best fits their tanning needs and whether they desire a short tan time, prefer to stand up or lie down, or wish to bask beneath high-pressure face lamps. Shop shelves offer home tanners quality products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, whereas spray-tanning options from VersaSpa and SunFX both impart a natural-looking faux glow that takes mere minutes to apply and lasts for days.

Back when it opened its first location, Crunch gym had no air conditioning or locker rooms, so staffers had to invent novel tactics to attract members, such as enlisting a live rapper to accompany hip-hop aerobics sessions. Bereft of fancy trimmings, the staff relied on imaginative classes that combined exercise with fun to build a base of loyal fandom and positive buzz. Their judgment-free attitudes and creativity eventually paid off, giving them enough steam to accrue new equipment, several franchise locations, and a reputation for turning boring workouts on their heads.

Today, Crunch locations have all the expected amenities. They boast brand-name machinery and certified trainers, as well as involvement with dotFIT, an online fitness and nutrition resource for members. They also host a range of group fitness classes, covering disciplines such as Zumba, yoga, Pilates, and TRX.

Sunlight doesn’t hit the sidewalks of Seattle much during winter. Or any other season, for that matter, which is why the city boasts five different Desert Sun Tanning Salons. The site in Wallingford, which sits at the corner of 45th and Stone Way, offers a good example of what to expect from this Pacific Northwest chain, where employees are certified tanning consultants who oversee state-of-the-art tanning beds, sunless spray tanning preparations, red-light therapy and body-wrap equipment. Personal on-site tours can be arranged to get a feel for the bright, cheerful setting, which blends the browns of Arizona with the cool blues of the individual tanning machines. Memberships are also available, making Desert Sun a year-round oasis of sunlight for weather-weary urbanites.

Over the course of three decades, Tropical Tan has expanded its sun-drenched empire into 13 locations, where beds and booths coat bodies in bronze and can provide Vitamin D through UV rays. Ergoline tanning beds mimic sunshine at levels ranging from one to five, while the Mystic Tan booth ignites subtle glows with golden mists instead of UV rays or bodysuits made of light bulbs. In addition to tanning, spa services augment natural beauty with treatments such as cellulite-fighting Formostar body wraps and red-light therapy, which helps smooth out creased skin.
