If you have seen me you will know that I do not need a spray tan, but iTAN offers a lot of other treatments! I got to experience one week as a member of the Sun Spray Spa iClub which allowed me to try any of their offerings from teeth whitening to the amazing FIT Bodywrap.
I am a firm believer of the importance of sweating once a day to help detoxify your skin. I seriously sweat with my (almost) daily yoga practice and love every minute of it. This is why the FIT Bodywrap was the first treatment I wanted to try. This 60 minute treatment is really quite easy. The first step was using the FIT Booster mineral spray all over your body. Next, you slip into the FIT Coat (basically an oversized gauzy footie pajama). Then you slip into a 120 degree heated sleeping bag. Finally, you lie back, relax and sweat.
If that doesn’t sound appealing, maybe the thought of burning 1400 calories in one treatment will! The infrared heat wrap breaks stored fat down and converts it into fatty acids that are used by your muscles for energy. It can also alleviate everything from muscle spasms to joint stiffness. The mineral spray and coat are simply barrier on your skin so that your body has to work harder than it normally would to produce sweat which means burning more calories.
Let me offer some tips:
- Do more than one treatment in order to see results. If you don’t, it would be like going to the gym one time and quitting because you didn’t see immediate results.
- There is a lot of noise due to the spray tanners and overhead music. So, for my second and third treatment I brought my iPod and headphone so that I could listen to an audiobook. Instead of trying to watch a DVD I just close my eyes and zoned out.
- The last 20 minutes are the hottest. Don’t. Get. Out. Battle through, because it will be worth it in the end.
- Try to work out within 24 hours of your treatment. Your body is primed to burn the fat, so take advantage of it. I went to a hot yoga class which actually felt cooler!
