At Firm Fitness & Spray Tan, visitors are transformed through a combination of hard work and aesthetic treatments. Personal trainer, co-owner, and competitive bodybuilder Phil Placko works one-on-one with clients to devise custom workouts. His studio is stocked only with essentials, its weight and cardio machines occupying a sparely-adorned room that's free of distractions such as blaring TVs and mimes. Outside the exercise rooms, infrared body wraps and massages help bodies flush out toxins and recover from intense workouts, while spray tan technicians administer golden glows to highlight every newly toned muscle.
The experts of sans-sun tanning at Copper Zone convert pale persons into bronzed bodies with a bounty of state-of-the-art tanning services and products. After clients step into the Cal-Tan Autobronzer spray booth, a mist of UV-free tanning applicant will gently rain down upon their sallow soul-satchels, rendering skin as naturally copper as Abe Lincoln's mutton chops. Copper Zone is conveniently located in Southern Park Mall, and is open seven days a week to the benefit of busy bronzing-aspirants.
Paradise Tanning boasts no less than eight tanning beds of varying strengths as well as a full line of Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty products to help pale personages fulfill their coppery potential. Set aside 6–20 minutes to relax while basking in one of the six standard tanning trundles equipped with gentle facial bulbs for sensitive skin. Or, upgrade to a premium browning experience in the 12-minute Star Power bed, which boasts side and shoulder bronzers, as well as 22 more bulbs than a standard tanning bed, or the 10-minute stand-up Sun Dome—a perfect choice for claustrophobics, or those suffering from chronic happy feet ($2 upgrade fee for Star Power and Sun Dome not included in Groupon).

What’s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part about my job is seeing clients happy with a tan because it makes them happy about themselves.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I used to get airbrush tans, and I was always happy with the way it looked. It is also healthy for the skin, unlike tanning beds, which can cause cancer.
