Though their tanning bed's bulbs are designed to last for up to 800 hours, the staff at The Equator replaces them after only 500–700 hours of use to ensure optimal UVB output. This is just one example of their dedication to providing the best possible tanning experience—another is the way in which they meticulously clean each tanning bed before and after each session. Aside from traditional UV tanning and sunless Mystic Tan offerings, they shrink unwanted bodily bulges with curve-contouring infrared-heat wraps. Infrared light goes to work, heating the subcutaneous layer of skin to sweep away unnecessary cellular deposits. Treatments burn through up to 1,400 calories an hour, dwarfing the results of other activities such as marathon running's 1,186 calories or marathon staring contest's two calories.
