Planet Beach Breaking Sales Records in Panama City, Panama

Yvonne N. Kilborn and her husband Carlos A. Gonzales along with their business partner Alvaro E. Villanueva decided they wanted to become Masters in the Republic of Panama after discovering the Planet Beach franchise system while attending a franchise expo in Jacksonville, Florida. “We were really sold by the fact that Planet Beach had an innovative and efficient service model. It allows customers to meet their relaxation needs without having to take hours out of their day. We truly admire the consistency in the quality of service and treatments that is made possible by the operation,” said Carlos Gonzales, a business professional with more than 10 years of experience working in Fortune 500 companies.

Knowing that customers are spending over $125 billion a year in the health and wellness arena, the three Masters plan to open eight spas in the greater metropolitan area of Panama City, Panama. The first is scheduled to open in the fall of 2016. “There was just something about Planet Beach. The value proposition for the customers seemed unbeatable and the financial numbers as a business made sense,” said Yvonne Kilborn. With a record breaking pre-sale, selling over 500 memberships, they can see their dream finally coming true.

Planet Beach spray & spa is a unique and innovative membership-based franchising corporation. Having the right equipment mix that includes services like the revolutionary new HOTWORX fitness program is what has kept this brand relevant through the years. Founded in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1996 the spa has grown to 170+ locations worldwide. In 2007, Planet Beach decided to expand the concept abroad through the International Master Franchise Program and has awarded the rights to develop the concept in Canada, Egypt, Ireland, Poland, Saudi Arabia, UAE, UK, Republic of Panama and the most recent Kazakhstan.

“We have seen sales sky rocket at locations that have installed our revolutionary new fitness program HOTWORX,” says Stephen P. Smith, CEO of Planet Beach and creator of HOTWORX.

September is for Self-Improvement

September Self Improvement

September is National Self-Improvement Month and Planet Beach is offering many ways to improve your health and beauty. We all know that improving your health and getting on a workout regime can make you look and feel better.  Also, giving yourself the gift of spa to relax, glow, and renew can increase your self-esteem, because when you look good and feel good you are more confident in everything you do.

There is also the “internal” self-improvement issues that we can’t ignore. Just remember that being kind and generous is not only beneficial to other’s but it is also beneficial to you. One could say, “ kindness makes you happy and happiness makes you kind.”

Kindness may have a longer, even more profound effect on our happiness, according to a study, published online in the Journal of Happiness Studies, conducted by researchers at Harvard Business School and the University of British Columbia.  Also keep in mind that kindness is contagious. When people see acts of kindness, it prompts them to want to be kind themselves.

There are those individuals that seem to just be more compassionate by nature. Then there are those that need to make a conscious decision to do something for the good of man. If you are one of those, try to incorporate a few minutes a day where you ask someone “what can I do for you?” After doing this for a while it becomes a habit and part of your lifestyle. I learned this from Ratinjit Sondhe, an inspirational speaker, author, and friend of Planet Beach.

Just keep in mind that we are all in this together. We all inhabit this planet and need to be aware of others as well as ourselves.  There is good in everyone and that’s what we need to focus on and embrace.

5 Delicious Foods to Help You Achieve Beautiful Skin

Beautiful Skin

Beautiful skin is a girl’s best accessory. When you are proud of the skin you have, it can allow you to be so much more confident in everything you do.

There are many things that contribute to the condition of our skin. Our environment, our diet, sleep habits, exercise and product use are among the most direct influences on its condition. So we know for those sun lovers they need to moisturize, that’s a given. Smoking is a definite no-no, and not just for your skin. There are certain foods that can help to enhance your skins appearance. Below are 5 easy to find foods that can help you get your glow on.

  1. Chocolate– SOME OF THE BEST NEWS I HAVE HEARD IN A LONG TIME!!! Cocoa hydrates your skin, making it more supple and firm. You must stick to, at least, 70% cacao, which contains a potent antioxidant. Of course it is recommended to eat only 2 squares a day.
  2. Yellow, Orange and Red Peppers-The antioxidants in these veggies can help decrease the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Also women who eat these vegetables regularly tend to have fewer wrinkles.
  3. Greek Yogurt- Eating the protein found in dairy helps the skin become firmer leaving it more resistant to fine lines. Greek yogurt contains nearly double the amount of protein found in regular yogurt.
  4. Pomegranates- This fruit is packed with polyphenol antioxidants, which are beneficial for fighting free radicals and regulating the skins blood flow. This will give your skin a slight rosiness.
  5. Walnuts- These nuts are filled with omega-3 fatty acids that can improve your skins elasticity. They are also rich in copper, a mineral known to boost collagen production.

Please always remember to drink plenty of water and get 8 hours of zzz’s a night. If you are looking for a moisturizer, Planet Beach has a variety of great options for the face and body. Check our products out on

The Aftermath

I have had many people ask me “how can you live in an area that is so prone to natural disasters?” I always have the same response…”I love the people.” The Louisiana culture is like no other. The food is great the music is unique and the people are warm, colorful and tough as nails. When there are people in need, Louisiana communities pull together and help each other out. We view our neighbors and co-workers as our extended family and love them with all of our hearts. I have lived in the New Orleans area my entire life and I couldn’t be more proud of my city and state.

Louisiana’s latest devastation in the Baton Rouge area, touched everyone on our corporate team. We pulled together and used one of our offices as a drop off for donations. The outcome is heart warming to say the least.
IMG_0086 IMG_0085

There are so many stories of local heroes pulling people and animals from their flooded homes that I personally want to say THANK YOU. There is one story of a local hero that I would like to share….a Planet Beach team member’s fiance, decided to buy a boat and drive up to the Baton Rouge area where he spent 4 days on a rescue mission. In that time he pulled a dozen people from the flood waters. Thank you Ernie!

We also want to ask that you keep the Normand family in your thoughts and prayers. They are part of the Planet Beach team in the Baton Rouge area and have been devastated by the recent events.

There are still people and animals of all ages that are left without necessities. Please find it in your heart to donate. Below is a link that includes different organizations.

Planet Beach Franchising Corporation Provides Relief to the Louisiana Flood Victims

 As the 11 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaches, South Louisiana will once again embark on the long road to recovery following the widespread flooding that affected Tangipahoa, St. Helena, East Baton Rouge and Livingston Parishes.  Although the extent of the disaster will not be known for some time, authorities have confirmed that thousands of homes have been devastated in Louisiana.  Planet Beach Franchising will be collecting items such as blankets, pillows, clothing, toiletries and non perishable food items for the victims affected by the unprecedented flooding.  The donations may be brought or sent to the PBFC Corporate Headquarters located at: 5145 Taravella Rd. Marrero, La 70072.

Planet Beach understands the wrath of Mother Nature all too well.  Only one week following Hurricane Katrina, the company had resumed operations at a satellite office in Houma, Louisiana.  In preparation of the Hurricane, the primary network server was transported to a location that would withstand an F-5 Category Tornado.  This critical move freed the lines of communication and allowed employees of Planet Beach to stay in constant contact as they fled their homes and found refuge in various destinations throughout the United States.  Senior Executives of Planet Beach implemented an operating plan that allowed the company to continue supporting and servicing its’ franchise locations across the globe.  These proactive measures allowed the company to persevere and progress forward.

Though Hurricane Katrina brought with it fierce winds and rains that washed away entire communities, it could not shake the perpetual spirit of Planet Beach.  In one catastrophic week, the company was pushed to the edge and pulled itself back. The people of the organization experienced the emotions of fear and loss, but amazingly demonstrated teamwork and focus.  They continued to focus on the job at hand under the most trying circumstances.  Through the tragic loss and devastation, the valiant people of the company persevered and carried on.  They moved forward and looked ahead without looking back.  They held on to the hope of tomorrow, to start anew and to seize the opportunity that lay before them.  They embraced the opportunity to rebuild their homes, their communities and their lives.

As state officials and personnel begin the restoration process in South Louisiana, Planet Beach Franchising will be assisting those affected by this unforeseen circumstance.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the flood victims.  Again, donations may be brought or sent to 5145 Taravella Rd. Marrero, La 70072.  Hours of Operation are MondayFriday 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

Be Good to Your Skin

Did you know that the largest organ on the human body is the skin?  In our youth, we take the integrity of our skin for granted. As a kid I remember my neighborhood pack. We would spend our summer days outside… swimming, biking, playing tennis, playing football in the rain, then washing with harsh soaps to clean the days grit. Never did any of us touch a bottle of lotion.

Forward, many years later, I still do spend a lot of time outdoors but have a very hard time staying moisturized. Some lotions are too greasy, some are too fragrant and some just don’t work.  I was recently introduced to Infuse. Not only does Infuse hydrate and nourish but it also detoxifies the skin. This ultimate lotion also provides the body with important anti-oxidant and anti-aging benefits.

For those men and ladies that are conscious of their skin tone, Infuse also may increase melanin production which is the pigment responsible for tanning. If you are a UV enthusiast, Infuse will also help activate UV therapy lotions and enhance the results.

Infuse is a no brainer!

4 Tips to Sleep

Screen Shot 2016-08-01 at 4.19.04 PM


To a lot of us sleeping seems like a waste of time, especially when we have tasks from the day left unfinished. Not to mention stressing over…AM I GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP??????? That’s the worst, laying in bed worrying about not being able to sleep and all the things you know you have to do the following day. Ugh!!!!

It’s really no joke, this country is sleep deprived. Leaving us all with a greater risk of depression, heart disease, cancer, impaired memory, weight gain and basic moodiness. We are even more likely to have an accident when we don’t get enough shut-eye.

Tips to help you get enough rest:

1. Set your body’s internal clock. This can be done by going to bed and waking up at the same time everyday.
2. Say no to late-night television. The light from the TV suppresses melatonin and the programing can be stimulating instead of relaxing.
3. Get up and do something. If you feel drowsy after dinner try doing laundry or some other mild activity. Do not lay down on the sofa.
4. Exercise! Keeping with a regular exercise routine like HOTWORX, is a definite way to help you get some sleep.

So, what’s the magic number? According to the website the amount of time needed to keep your body and mind healthy is listed below.
Adults need 7-9 hours,
Teens need 8-10 hours,
School- aged children need 9-12 hours
Preschoolers need 10-13 hours (naps included)
Toddlers need 11-14 hours (naps included)
Babies need 12-16 hours (naps included)
