Did you know that every single day, hundreds of people show up at Planet Fitness ready to work out? This is because the gym is packed with fitness aficionados who are here to show their friends how it’s done. Even though there are so many people showing up for a workout, not all of them have the right idea when it comes to going to the tanning bed. Not all tanning beds are created equal! Look closely and you’ll see that some have a lot more color in them than others. The amount of UVA light they emit will also vary from one tanning bed to another. The good news is that there’s an app for that! You can now check tanning beds against health and safety standards using your smartphone or tablet. If you own a local gym or fitness center, then this article is for you. You see, just like at any other business, some members may not be comfortable exposing themselves to potential health risks when they visit the gym. They won’t go near a tanning bed if it doesn’t meet their personal standards but would rather use another option like a sauna or steam room instead. In this article, we’ll take you through some key things you need to know about tanning at planet fitness and how not to make the same mistakes we did as new members back in our day!
How To Tan At Planet Fitness
Choose the right tanning bed
If you’ve ever been to a tanning bed at a gym or fitness center, you know that they’re not all the same. The good news is that you can now choose which tanning bed you want by using the app on your smartphone or tablet. The app will tell you information about each tanning bed including its UVA and UVB strength, as well as its ability to detect health risks such as skin cancer. It also tells you if it has an automatic shut-off feature and how many people have used it in the past year. You can even see if it’s been updated with new safety features in the last year! Using this app is a great way for members to make sure their exercise space is safe for everyone who works out there. If a member sees a potential health risk, then they can simply use their phone or tablet to check that particular bed against health and safety standards before using it themselves!
Make sure your tanning bed meets Health and Safety Standards
If your gym doesn’t offer this app, then just ask them to install one on their website so that members can check any new beds they bring in against these standards! Not only will this help prevent future accidents but it will also help protect all of their members from potential health risks such as skin cancer and other types of cancers caused by overexposure to ultraviolet light (UVA). If you find that any of the beds they have aren’t up to these standards, then you should ask them to remove them from the facility and replace them with one that meets these health and safety standards!
Be sure to use sunblock
UVA and UVB rays from tanning beds can cause skin cancer as well as other types of cancer in humans as well as skin damage. So just like with any other type of light, it’s even more important for members to protect their skin when they use tanning beds at their gym or fitness center. This is why we recommend using a sunblock with a high SPF rating (at least SPF 50) whenever you are using a tanning bed at your gym or fitness center! Tanning beds aren’t the only place where overexposure to ultraviolet light can be dangerous so it’s always good to be safe and protect yourself when you are outside in nature or even at home!
Be sure to use your tanning bed in moderation
As mentioned above, tanning beds can cause skin damage as well as other types of diseases and cancers. So it’s important that members use their tanning bed in moderation and only when they are getting a good amount of sun! If you have any questions about this, then just ask your gym to explain the difference between overexposure and under-exposure (as well as the health risks associated with each). We recommend that members start off with just one or two sessions per week at the very most and then slowly work up to using them on a daily basis!
Be sure to check your member fees for any discounts or offers for tanning beds
It’s important that members are aware of all of these health risks when they are using tanning beds so they can make an informed decision about which ones to use at their gym or fitness center! Our website has a great deal of information about how UV light affects the human body as well as tips on how to make sure you are getting enough light from the sun so that you don’t get skin cancer, so it’s always a good idea for members to check out this page if they want more information about this subject!
What Are The Different Types Of Tanning Beds?
This is the most common type of tanning bed. It has a UVA/UVB filter that can block out UVA and UVB rays from the sun. The filter is usually located in the middle of a tanning bed, or on top.
These are beds that have a U-shaped curve that allows you to lay down fully flat while you tan. They are great if you want to relax with your feet up and read a book while you tan! There are different types of beds with different levels of intensity as well as different features, but they all have this U-shaped curve so be sure to check out our website for more details!
The Ring Tanning Bed System (RTBS)
This is Planet Fitness’s own brand! RTBS stands for “The Ring Tanning Bed System” and it’s an innovative way to make tanning easier for members by using technology! RTBS comes in two parts: an electronic control unit (ECU) that controls the power settings and an automatic timer that makes sure your session starts at the correct time without fail! Together, these two pieces make sure your tan lasts exactly how long you want it to without any misunderstandings or mistakes! RTBS can be used with all types of sunbeds including Full Body, U-shaped beds, and even portable sunbeds like those sold at Walmart or Target! As mentioned above, you can also use RTBS with portable sunbeds, but you cannot use the ECU with a portable sunbed. You can read more about the different types of tanning beds on our website to find out which type is right for you!
The truth is that working out at a gym can be great. It’s a place where people of all ages and fitness levels can come together and get moving. The only problem is that not everyone will be comfortable showing up naked. That’s why it’s important to be aware of the rules and regulations at your local gym. If you’re not sure where to start, you can always ask a trainer at the gym.
