PRLog - Jan. 25, 2013 - CHULA VISTA, Calif. -- What’s the number one New Year’s resolution of 2013? Weight loss! And if you are a tanning salon owner, your business has the opportunity to help customers lose weight effortlessly by incorporating the FIT® Bodywrap system in your business – just as Kristen Haga, owner of Sunkissed Tanning, did.
Kristen bought the FIT® Bodywrap system two years ago for her Poplar Bluff, MO salon and used her own family members and friends to prove just how effective and effortless lasting weight loss can be. Says Kristen, “I have a subscription to Island Sun Tanning magazine and while scrolling through an issue one day, I saw the FIT® Bodywrap ad. I was interested in it but it sounded a little too good to be true. I did research on the computer on infrared heat and ended up buying one the very next day! At first I used a friend as my guinea pig. She did 12 sessions over a month and a half and was down 47 pounds. I got lucky with her, to use as a promotion. This machine is no joke at all!
“Because of my friend’s success, my whole family has used FIT® Bodywraps. My brother lost 52 pounds. I loaned him my personal body wrap machine. My cousin Amy is down 65 pounds – after seeing my brother she was convinced that it worked and tried it herself. Another cousin, Ashley, is down 102 pounds. I have two clients with success stories, too: Arika, who is down 80 pounds and still going; and Misty, who dropped 47 pounds between August and September last year.”
While it sounds too good to be true, FIT® Bodywraps are a very effective weight loss system that uses far infrared ray (FIR) technology – the same technology used in saunas for decades – to safely and gently heat the body. Your body responds by sweating and burning calories to cool itself down – up to 1,000 calories in a single one-hour session. Not only are the results immediate, they are lasting. Clients don’t just lose water weight, they lose inches.
Kristen used those success stories from her friends and family as walking testimonials for this unique weight loss system installed in her tanning salon – the only one in the area. She’s even bought another system because the body wraps are so popular. This easy form of weight loss and pain relief is so well-liked that not only are her clients coming to Sunkissed from a rival tanning salon, they drive hours to use the self-administered FIT® Bodywrap machine. As Kristen shares, “Everyone in the area knows what FIT Body wraps are. We have 15,000 people in my town and a total of 30,000 in the county. People will drive an hour and a half to get a body wrap; I’ve got regular clientele including a carful of nurses who all drive in together. Not only am I spreading the word, but all these people losing weight are talking about it to their friends and family. When someone drops 50 pounds in a month, everyone is bound to ask, ‘What are you doing?’”
With that kind of popularity and word-of-mouth advertising, the FIT® Bodywrap system has the potential to have a positive impact on any tanning salon’s bottom line, even in the off season. Kristen shares just how profitable the system is, “…it brings in a good $6,000 to $10,000 a month. If you are pushing your business by showing pictures and having a social media presence, that’s what makes your business. I have made up to $25,000 in body wraps in a month’s time but I can rely on $6,000 to $10,000 each month that I get from sales of monthly packages that include the FIT® Booster spray.”
Clearly, when it comes to new streams of revenue for a tanning salon, FIT® Bodywraps are an excellent choice! Kristen has some last words of wisdom in regards to marketing your FIT® Bodywrap system, “You are self employed so you make your own paycheck. You determine if your salary is high or low and your dedication will show. I’m 21 years old selling this machine and if people believe me, anyone can do it. If you can’t, you need to step your game up. And tanning salon owners – if you have 20 pounds to lose, get that weight off and promote yourself! That’s an easy way to start a conversation and spread the word.”
For tanning salons that want a new revenue stream and guaranteed profitability and satisfaction, the FIT® Bodywrap system fits the bill!
