Jan Tana opened one of the first tanning salons in Virginia in 1982. Since her business became such a success she continued opening more salons which deemed just as successful as the first. Jan Tana’s salons eventually became the Jan Tana Tanning Salon franchise, as she became recognized as one of the best salons in the industry where you can achieve that “perfect tan”. 1987 brought Jan her first involvement in bodybuilding competitions, where she initiated the “Jan Tana Classic”, using all of her tanning products on the competitors. The “Jan Tana Classic” was originally called the NPC Virginia State Championship, and the 1987 show was the largest turn out in the history of the event. In 1989 Jan decided to promote her own bodybuilding show, the Jan Tana Eastern U.S. Open, which was open to all NPC competitors from the eastern U.S. The show deemed a huge success and the following year Jan opened her show to all NPC competitors nationwide. Since then it has been the official “Jan Tana Classic” annually. Jan Tana is especially known for her line of sunless tanning products, “Hi-Definition” Color”, where it is primarily used among professionals.
