Real Tan’s owners originally opened their doors more than 20 years ago with a salon in Scarborough. The single location couldn't keep up with tanning demands, leading to a relocation to Mississauga and a recently opened second location in Thornhill. Along the way, Real Tan has expanded its specialties to include ultra-bronzing Ergoline beds, Playboy spray tanning, and teeth whitening, which brightens teeth up to eight shades and lasts longer than gargling white-out.
In a society that looks for shortcuts to weight loss wherever it can, FitStudios is taking the long way. Through their Functionally Integrated Training program, or F.I.T., the studio's trainers borrow from numerous disciplines to customize their fitness programs to each student's goals, taking their time to ensure students work out right the first time in order to maintain their health in the long run. The result is a stronger body with more stable joints, better cardiovascular endurance, and enhanced flexibility. Through the studio's group training regimens, students learn how to buff up as they work together, forming towering human pyramids to eventually find out what clouds taste like.
These physical feats are accomplished in FitStudios' well-equipped fitness centre, in which TRX suspension bands dangle over an obstacle course of footwork ladders, elliptical machines surround gliding pads and hurdles, and free weights and kettlebells stand at the ready. Also providing holistic wellness, FitStudios' team of sports-therapy specialists treats sports- and stress-related injuries with chiropractic services, acupuncture, and massage therapy.
