There is quite a bit of controversy involving gyms having tanning beds. Some people see no problem with it, but I do. How can a place that represents health promote skin cancer? If companies really wanted you to be the best you can be, then they wouldn’t have tanning beds so easily accessible? It completely defeats the purpose of bettering yourself, and shows that all those gyms care about is your money. The corporations know that by including tanning, people will be more likely to think it’s a good deal. They completely ignore the fact that you workout to prolong your life, and to transform your body for the better.They give you the option of ruining your skin and shortening your lifespan.
