Gold’s Gym Review

Posted May 08 2009 11:39pm 1 Comment

As promised I stopped by the Gold’s Gym near my office to take a look around.  The one thing that I found that I did like at Gold’s was that they had a neck machine.  It’s only at the facility by University Mall, no other Gold’s in the area.  This is the first gym I’ve ever seen one in.  So, if I have a neck rehab patient who needs a gym I know where to send them.

Beyond that however, I felt like a number at Gold’s.  At first they didn’t even want to let me in until I bought a memebership.  They didn’t seem to understand that someone might want to look around before getting a membership.  They told me I could come in if I had a free 1-day pass, but they weren’t willing to give me one. Finally after explaining what I was doing for the 4th time they finally let me look around after signing a waiver.

Beyond that complaint about the greeting, I found everything that I wanted in a gym for my patients.  They do have a pool and the back machines that I recommend for good back health.

As far as cost, I now have information from two gyms, but 24-Hour Fitness was substantially less than Gold’s Gym.  If you’re going to use a gym anyway then the money isn’t really a big deal to you.  If you were really worried about money you wouldn’t go to a gym.  They are expensive.  I’ll create a cost benefit post when I’m done with a few more gyms in the area.

please dont sign anything with this gym!!!  They will take you for a ride.  A former Pastor recommended this gym to the congregation only for me to go and see a bunch of valley girls sitting on the phone, and then caught my former pastor in the locker room kissing another female, and she was suppose to be a pastor, but needless to say, she got mad, had me barred from the gym, and had everybody gang up on me and say I was harassing her.  Plus, I worked in the childcare center and the teenagers there dont watch the kids, they sit on the phone talking to their boyfriends and texting and not watching the kids.  When I told one of the girls to get off her phone, and help with the kids, she said I was harassing her.  This all occurred in columbus Georgia Gold's gym, so if you are ever this way, dont sign nothing with them, they are the biggest bunch of fake people I have ever seen.
