Just curious. Why or why not?

No, because skin cancer and wrinkles are not ideal.

Isn't it an oxymoron for a gym to have tanning beds? :lol: I thought a gym was a place that encouraged complete health :?

Because I already have amazing olive skin. Even if I didn't have a tan I still wouldn't.

Nope. Because I don't want skin cancer. And I don't want my skin to look leathery, and smell like burnt skin..

Not everyone does it for tanning their skin, mind you.. Cirrhosis and acne being two very common reasons in my experience at least.

Acne will seem like a dream compared to a cancerous mole. I don't know wth cirrhosis is.

No, I've never used a tanning bed and never will. I'm terrified of getting skin cancer and I'd rather not increase my chances if I can help it.

If you tan smart, and don't over expose, you don't have to worry about skin cancer. It is good for a variety of skin conditions.

Also, no I don't use the tanning beds at my gym.

The only time I actually use a tanning bed is right before summer and before Vacation, I'd rather avoid getting burnt in the sun which does increase your chance of sun cancer, because having a tan is your skin's natural mechanism against burning.

No, sometimes I think argh maybe just 1 but I have 3 biggish moles on my face and lots of little ones all over my body, I don't want to risk them turning nasty .
