Sun Tan City’s trained tanning consultants help clients get bronzed via UV-free tanning booths and ergonomic tanning beds. Guests can schedule a single visit to touch up an existing tan, purchase a multivisit package to get a discounted rate, or become a member to take advantage of the salon’s 100% guarantee.
Back in 1999, brothers David and Rick Kueber noticed a lag in business at their chain of video-rental shops during the summer months, when no one wanted to be cooped up inside watching movies. The two put their heads together and found a rather unconventional solution to their problem: tanning beds. They installed a new fleet of skin-bronzing machines and sat back as so many clients flocked to their shop that the brothers were forced to open an entire store just to cater to their clients’ tanning demands. This was the birth of Sun Tan City. Today, what started as an experimental side business boasts more than 200 locations across 16 states.
The staff at each location maintains a meticulously clean space, where they show clients to UV beds dubbed fast, faster, fastest, and instant. The beds include features such as facial tanners and self-contained air conditioners. Alternatively, clients can opt for the UV-free, automated VersaSpa system, which swathes physiques in a DHA, plant-based bronzing solution. The liquid reacts naturally with skin’s amino acids, creating an even coat as radiant as the high beams on Helios’s chariot within 46 seconds.
At Core Fitness, muscle-makers can utilize and experience free weights, cardio classes, workout machines, and more. Over 145 classes per week range in level to suit fledgling fitness fans and experienced exercisers alike. Both locations are open 24 hours every day, ensuring even the busiest beekeepers have the opportunity to put down their apiary aprons and get fit. Choose from slimming, heart-pumping sessions like the Bodypump class, where muscle mavens can tone and define muscle without building bulk, or relax and revitalize mind and body with Warm Yoga Flow. Other choices include spin class, kickboxing and Zumba; all classes are lead by certified and sculpted instructors. Each facility also boasts saunas and steam rooms, as well as free parking to match their perpetual operating hours.
Whisking away bespotted garments and returning fresh garb, Sunshine provides Iowa City with impressively convenient pickup and delivery laundry services. Trundle off apparel for sudsy vacations from anywhere in Iowa City, Coralville, or North Liberty (30 lbs minimum of laundry for pickup/delivery). Services cost $1.50 per pound of laundry, falling to $1 after 50 pounds. Customers with blazers requiring extra coddling and shirts that need sleeve-holding can visit the store and cleanse clothing using the self-service laundry machines. An attendant is always on duty to help to wrangle rebellious trousers. Though not included with this Groupon, patrons dropping off or self-scrubbing their threads can while away the minutes at the shop's tanning salon or in-store cafe, sating hunger with java, smoothies, or sandwiches as garments do the rinse-cycle tango.
