The Lodi Planning Commission will discuss an application for a Stockton-based fitness club to move into the space Apple Market currently occupies.

In-Shape Health Clubs, Inc. plans to open a 30,333-square-foot fitness club, which includes installing a mezzanine for extra space, in the building at Ham Lane and Lockeford Street.

In-Shape Health Clubs decided to expand to Lodi after residents who had been going to the clubs in Stockton requested a Lodi location, company spokeswoman Michelle Clark said. The company was waiting for the right time and to find an available building, she said.

The club will include cardio and weight machines, free weights, group cycling and exercise classes, an indoor lap and family pool, a steam room, a sauna, raquetball courts, a seperate women's fitness area and a stretching area. Services include a kids club that provides child care, a juice bar and lounge area, personal fitness training, swimming lessons and tanning.

Clark describes the club as a "family-friendly, full-service club."

Apple Market opened in 1999, and is still open. While there is no specific timeline on when In-Shape plans to move into the location, gym representatives said they would like to be open by the end of 2013.

The building has been used since the 1950s as a grocery store called Sell-Rite. The building was demolished and rebuilt in 1998 and was occupied briefly by another grocery store before Apple Market opened.

In-Shape has 63 locations total in Northern and Southern California.

The gym plans to be open 4 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday and 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

The Planning Commission will consider the application, and city staff recommends that the project be approved.

"In addition, because the health/fitness club is a membership and health-based organization, it would be less likely than a retail facility (which was the previous use of the site and is a use that would be open to the general public) to cause any nuisance or enforcement problems within the neighborhood," city staff wrote in the commission packet.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. tonight in Carnegie Forum, 305 W. Pine St., Lodi.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
