If you are looking for a great place to work out that is also affordable, check out Ja Spa and Fitness on Main Street in Marcellus. Ja Spa and Fitness opened its doors in May and not only offers a full gym and a variety of fitness classes, but also offers tanning, and soon, many spa treatments.
The owner, William Lucchetti, is currently offering free memberships to anyone that is interested. The free-trial membership includes the use of the entire gym and access to all of the classes. Ja Spa and Fitness has been offering this free membership since May when it opened and will continue to do so through December 2006.
Sarah Geglia, Ja Spa Fitness director of operations, said, "Free membership is a great way to try out the gym and the classes, to see what membership level is suitable for each individual."
Ja Spa and Fitness offers two levels of membership, basic membership, which includes the use of the gym, and VIP membership, which includes the gym, classes, locker room and sauna. The prices are very reasonable. A single basic membership costs only $20 per month and a single VIP membership costs only $30 per month.
"We want to have a high quality luxury gym and spa," Geglia said, "yet we want it to be affordable."
Ja Spa and Fitness offers a variety of fitness classes including several different yoga classes, spinning, and a unique youth program called 'Creative Movement for Kids.'
Shelly McCall, fitness trainer at Ja Spa, teaches 'Creative Movement for Kids,' which is geared to children ages 2 to 5. Prior to working at Ja Spa, McCall, a professional dancer, taught ballet, tap, and jazz in Lyons.
"Our youth program involves everything from skipping, balance, and playing, to yoga and dance," McCall said. "We feel it's a great way to get kids to see exercise in a positive way. The kids have so much fun with it and it allows the parents some time to work out as well."
