COSTA MESA - Dieters will have to look elsewhere for excuses not to follow through on their New Year's weight-loss resolutions with the reopening of 24 Hour Fitness on 19th Street. The members-only club closed Dec. 9 and reopened Thursday after undergoing a remodel to the exercise rooms, pool and locker room areas and various enhancements, including new cardio-training equipment and fresh paint. Club employees stood at the registration desk, welcoming members back by name as they signed in for the first time in three weeks.

COSTA MESA — The Planning Commission on Monday unanimously approved plans to build an upscale gym at Triangle Square, a step that the shopping center's new owners hope will get the once-thriving center back in shape. But the approval wasn't without doubts and questions about whether there's enough parking to handle the flow of gym-goers, especially during peak hours. Greenlaw Partners, the center's owner, hopes to fill the partially vacant Triangle Square with other high-end tenants, and executives have said they find the parking there adequate.

In basketball, arguing a call doesn’t usually land you in jail. But that’s what happened to Nevious Osborne at a Costa Mesa gym early Tuesday, police said, when a disagreement over some calls during a basketball game ended with his opponent’s car being damaged. Osborne, 28, of Huntington Beach argued with 26-year-old Michael Davis of Corona about their basketball game, which Osborne lost, at the 24 Hour Fitness on Anton Boulevard about 12:15 a.m., police said.

The wind was chilly and the misting rain wilted their hand-made cardboard signs, but the small crowd of protesters didn't care. The group of about 15 people picketed and marched outside the Newport Center 24 Hour Fitness gym Saturday morning in a last-ditch effort to save the gym's popular juice bar ? and its friendly owner ? from being evicted. Many of the club's members are angered that club remodel plans leave no room for Jin-Sung Kim and his juice bar, Surf City Squeeze.

The owner of a popular juice bar inside a Newport Beach gym was served with a 30-day eviction notice this week despite the impassioned activism of hundreds of members who have lobbied for him to stay. Jin-Sung Kim has owned and operated Surf City Squeeze, a juice and snack bar, inside rented space at the 24 Hour Fitness in Newport Center for more than five years. After the lease was up in October, managers informed him that club's remodeling plans left no room for the juice bar. He has to be out by April 25. But Kim's loyal customers aren't taking the news lightly.

Pilfering from cars at fitness-center lots in south O.C. seems to be unrelated to similar crimes in local area last year.A recent spate of thefts from fitness center parking lots in south Orange County resembles a similar spree last year in Costa Mesa, but police say there have been no reports of a repeat locally. Over the holidays, a thief targeted gyms in Laguna Hills, San Juan Capistrano and Foothill Ranch, breaking into cars and stealing valuables, officials said. The thief would steal credit cards from a wallet and replace them with other stolen cards, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

There may be a more gorgeous, beautiful combination of water, views and city than our little glistening isle, but for during a recent afternoon, Newport Beach is heaven. Newport might contain, as does Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa and Laguna Beach, as physically active a group of people as exist anywhere. Recently I left 24 Hour Fitness on Lakeshore in Irvine, which was humming with activity on a weekend. Patrons were actively involved in spin sessions on bicycles, playing squash, scaling surrogate mountainsides, lifting weights and using every form of aerobic workout equipment.

Several years ago, I called Costa Mesa's Triangle Square the Bermuda Triangle Square, as it seemed to be where businesses went to disappear. In the roughly 20 years since it opened, the center has hosted a Niketown, Virgin Records (where they answered the phone, "Virgin Records Newport Beach"), Gap, Barnes & Noble, Johnny Rockets and many more. The only places that have thwarted the hex are the Yardhouse, Sutra Lounge and the movie theaters. The mall was so bad that the average number of stars on Yelp is two. Now, however, there is no more Triangle Square.

The Costa Mesa Planning Commission unanimously denied an application for a proposed 7-Eleven near The Triangle on Monday night, citing the area's problems with homelessness and the convenience store's request to sell alcohol. Their decision was supported by the Police Department and city staff, who also alluded to potential parking and traffic problems, a concentration of 10 alcohol sale permits in the area, and the 7-Eleven's potential to "magnify exiting problems with transiency.
