I started going to TanMan because it is very close to where I live, and on the way home from my fitness place. The blonde guy who works there is very friendly and goofy, not stuck-up and prissy like some places. There is a "contract" of sorts, in that you sign up to be a member...but it doesn't have any of the scary catches, and is easy to cancel whenever you like. I also like the upgrade system, that you can put in money towards upgrading. I just upgrade to whichever bed is available, and that way gets a good variety. The level 3 bed (a 12 minute one) is the only bed I've found that does anything for my face. Those face bulbs are crazy, and even get the sides. The only downside would be the tiny rooms, but I can tell they don't exactly have space to expand. When you step in the room you are basically standing on the bed, small compared to Sunstlye tans. That said, there is a mirror in the room, which is a nice touch considering I sometimes look fairly skeezed out after a good tan (don't worry, I'm not that person that takes 10 minutes to leave after the bed shuts off!)
I would first like to say that TanMan has changed, for the better! I think that some people should really give it another shot before throwing in the towel. There is a cancellation policy now, there are no longer 36 month agreements, and you cant even do 24 months either. You can do single sessions, month to month, 6 months, 1 year and prepaid agreements. You can cancel at anytime and the staff isn't nearly as pushy as in previous years. As for your skip a dues option, you must email the store 10 days before your payment date to put it into affect. VERY SIMPLE! If you don't feel that everything has been explained to you. Ask questions! The staff is extremely knowledgeable and more friendly now then ever! I love the sunset store. Everyone is helpful and attentive and it's always clean! Plus they know you by name. At the very least go take advantage of one of there free tan weekends they always do monthly now. What have you got to loose!?
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PLACE !!!!! I have been going here since they first opened 12+ years ago and it only gets better every day. They just recently went under NEW OWNERSHIP which has made things 100% better. They have already added a lot more new beds. They now have 2 HIGH PRESSURE BEDS, a Mystic, 3 Regular Beds, Stand-Up, etc. They have remodeled as well and the place could not be better looking. It is so convenient not having to make an appointment due to having 2 High Pressure Beds now. The staff is amazing. They are the sweetest and kindest group of people. They make you feel like family and that you're right at home. I love this place and recommend it to EVERYONE.
