Congratulations to Leslee Baker, Miss iTAN 2014! Leslee is originally from Chicago and experienced a few different cities before making sunny San Diego her home. She loves living the Southern California lifestyle because she feels everyone strives to stay active and healthy. Leslee recently shared with the iTAN team more about her Southern California experiences since moving from Chicago. “We’re fortunate to have so many fresh ingredients, organic restaurants and different options to choose from. On the weekends it’s refreshing to see everyone at the beach and outdoors hiking, bike riding, surfing and jogging.”
Leslee stays active by going to the gym and trying to switch up her routine whether it’s cardio, classes or incorporating different workout routines from fitness magazines, yoga, as well as hiking on the weekends. “My favorite place to hike is Torrey Pines because I walk from Del Mar, so I get to experience the beach as well,” Leslee said. “My sister is my workout buddy and helps me stay motivated when my fuel is running low after work. I believe having fun while being active is really important.”
Family and faith are what Leslee holds true the most, because with any decision and whatever life throws her way, she can rely on their support. She’s also learned that following her passion is more important than listening to what everyone else believes she should do because in the end, “you’re the only one who knows how you should live your life”.
Lelsee is excited to be an ambassador for iTAN and represent all that it has to offer. “From the moment I walked in to iTAN and set up a membership, I was thoroughly impressed with the professional service, cleanliness, knowledge and kindness from the staff and it’s been the same ever since. To be a part of it and be a representative is such an honor.” When asked what she hopes to accomplish in her role as Miss iTAN 2014, Leslee expressed her enthusiasm for the brand and local community. “I hope to be an active participant in the expansion of iTAN and see the community be a part as well. I hope that by being active in it I can encourage and inspire others to join and experience the sense of family and awareness of all the wonderful services that are available. I hope that I will also inspire others to be confident and portray the best self they can be… to be happy and live happily.”
Leslee’s lifestyle tip: Strive to be the best you that you can be. Not anyone else, but your individual self.
Leslee’s favorite services: I love the Sun Angel and iTAN Smart beds because they have skin sensors to personalize your tanning session and gradually build your tan. They also have spray misters to keep you comfortable and cool during your tan. I love the Beauty Angel as well because the platform you stand on vibrates while the red light firms and tightens your skin. I also love the teeth whitening.
Leslee’s favorite products: I would recommend using the activation effect spray for the Beauty Angel for optimal results. All of the tanning lotions for the beds are great, but my favorites are Swedish Beauty Dark and Dangerous lotion and Kardashian Glow because they smell really good and help bring out a nice rich color.

Congratulations Jon Wilson, iMAN 2014! A resident of Otay Ranch, Jon has been living in California for the past two years. Originally from Michigan, Jon was stationed here by the U.S. Navy and currently works as a K9 police officer.
Jon recently shared with iTAN what he loves most about Southern California living. “The area is beautiful, very modern and has everything I need locally” said Jon. “My favorite part of living in Southern California is the weather and its predictability. You can easily plan out your days and weeks ahead of time because it’s a guarantee of sunshine and shorts!”
Jon was selected as our brand ambassador because he represents what iTAN is all about—looking good and feeling confident. As a military law enforcement officer and fitness competitor, staying in shape is a big part of Jon’s lifestyle. He trains six days a week at the gym and does cardio every morning, which often consists of running on the beach. As a hobby, Jon enjoys rock climbing because it’s both mentally and physically challenging.
Jon feels most inspired by his fiancé and 6-year-old daughter. “They are both so smart and inspiring to me,” said Jon. “Whether it’s work, school, or a fitness competition, they are always my number one supporters!”
“Becoming the new iMAN is still sinking in,” said Jon. Jon is excited to be iTAN’s new brand ambassador so he can encourage others to live a healthy, confident lifestyle. “I want the community to know iTAN is not just a place to tan, but a place to relax and treat yourself.”
One of Jon’s favorite things about iTAN is the spa services, like the Teeth Whitening system and Aqua Jet Therapy. iTAN’s knowledgeable and supportive staff encouraged Jon to try out every service offered, elevating his overall experience.
Jon’s favorite services: Sun tanning, Teeth Whitening and Aqua Massage
Jon’s favorite products: Designer Skin line
