Try Marecellus' Ja Spa for free

Ja Spa and Fitness also offers some of the most advanced tanning beds available, including The Velocity bed, which is the most powerful tanning bed on the market right now.

Chris Dillon, gym manager, said, "The Velocity is the Mercedes of the tanning bed world."

Soon, Ja Spa and Fitness will open the Spa portion of the business offering many different types of massage, including sport specific, Swedish, aromatherapy, deep tissues and hot stone. Manicures and pedicures will be available at affordable prices.

Lucchetti has big plans for adding on to the gym and spa in the future.

"Eventually we want to expand the space and connect the buildings, making it more mall-like with glass atriums, Lucchetti said, "I like the idea of creating a village within a village and giving it a traditional European-feel."

Lucchetti also plans on adding a childcare space in the future for parents to drop their children off while they work out or have a spa treatment done. There are also future plans for racquetball courts and an expanded gym space.

Lucchetti is even working on adding celebrity-lead fitness classes that would lead to specialty classes in areas such as the marshal arts.

Ja Spa and Fitness does plan on making its club exclusive and capping the membership at some point. It has already taken on 200 members and plans to add at least 200 more. Lucchetti said he could see it growing to 1,500 active members after the expansion, but that they would take a wait and see approach.

"I don't want it to be overbearing on people," Lucchetti said, "I'm taking our members into consideration. I don't want people to have to wait for machines or showers."

"I'm still so overwhelmed by the warm reception that people in the community have given me," Lucchetti said. "That it is a real sense of awe. This was built by the community and that is exciting."

Ja Spa and Fitness is open Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
