Sunset Tans provides body bronzers with an oasis of pigment-enhancing options. Feel free to kick back and recount your favorite credit-card numbers in the tanning beds from Sunvision and Sunstar with the 30-day unlimited tanning package ($35), or perfect flamingo poses in the Hex II and Sundome stand-up booths ($7 for single session), each equipped with the best bulbs recommended to help tanners reach their tonal potential. Ray-resistant tanners, meanwhile, can find an alternate colored coat thanks to the Norvell-system airbrush tanning ($25), professionally applied for a streak-free, spot-free epidermal renewal. Skin owners can protect their copper pelt from defecting to the U.S. Mint thanks to a variety of products from brands such as Supre Tan, Australian Gold, and ProTan.
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.
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.
Hollywood Tans' fleet of UV and spray-tanning booths gild epidermises with a host of high-tech amenities. The HT60 machine builds up a base tan in three–four sessions and catches most stray UVB rays, a process which prevents the skin from exfoliating and loosing its color too soon. Custom-airbrushed and Mystic spray-tan options bypass UV rays like a tree on a hunger strike, and customizable cartridges allow clients to choose their ideal color for a natural tan that lasts up to a week. The full-service salons are open seven days a week and also offer waxing, and makeup application.
Philadelphia isn't Hollywood, so its hard to get the golden glow of the Pacific year round. With 100 branches across the U.S., Hollywood Tans handles the task, spraying clients with bronze color using vertical, high performance tanning booths and UV-free Norvell Tans. These options create natural looking darker skin tones without sunburn or the threat of land sharks crowding out your sunlight. Every location sports an average of 8 booths, rendering appointments unnecessary.
