Lancaster, CA (September 2, 2014) – In-Shape Health Clubs has announced construction on a state-of-the-art fitness facility in Lancaster, California, pending city approval of all permits. The club will be a 24,000 square foot build-out of the former Stater Brothers grocery store in the Century Plaza Shopping Center at 1800 East Avenue J.  In-Shape’s preview center opens today in the same shopping center, offering local residents the chance to get more information and purchase memberships early.


“We are a vibrant, growing company and are thrilled to announce our third facility in the Palmdale/Lancaster area,” said Paul Rothbard, In-Shape’s Chief Executive Officer. “We’ve been overwhelmed by positive response to our two Palmdale locations, and this club will complement them perfectly.” 


This new health club will feature fantastic amenities including dozens of free group classes, kettlebells and other functional training equipment, and state-of-the-art cardio machines. Local residents will also find In-Shape’s exclusive 29-Minute Circuit® express workout, massage and tanning services, the industry’s best selectorized and free weight equipment, and certified personal trainers.


Lancaster residents can also look forward to diverse employment opportunities as this new fitness destination is built.  In-Shape estimates that this club will offer 40 new jobs.


In-Shape’s Preview Center will offer limited-time Charter Memberships at reduced rates for residents who join early. An expansive workout area is scheduled to open by the end of the year, allowing Charter Members to start exercising while the rest of the facility is built. Interested residents should call 661-728-5016 or e-mail lancaster@inshape.com for more information.


"We believe that everyone is entitled to live a healthy and happy life and we are proud to join the Lancaster community,” said Rothbard. “We are committed to the Antelope Valley and invite all local residents to come see how we can help them look and feel their best!”
