Both the Lynchburg and Roanoke locations have year round batting cages, 36 holes of championship miniature golf, the best gameroom around with the largest prize center in the area. The Lynchburg facility has go-karts and bumper boats.

Since its 1965 founding in Venice Beach, California, Gold's Gym has dotted the globe with more than 600 locations where professional athletes and exercise newbies gather under the umbrella of personal strength and use more than 150 pieces of cardio equipment, attend over 100 different classes, and play on the racketball court, basketball court and in the pool. Nearly 3.5 million Gold's members chart and aim for their fitness peaks, perspiring beneath the gaze of certified personal trainers or pedaling beside peers at cycling sessions. In a diverse lineup of group classes, patrons strengthen cores with Pilates, finger-paint pictures of ninjas in martial arts, and amp up heart rates along to the pulsating soundtracks of Les Mills routines.
Many Gold's Gym locations stockpile futuristic amenities, such as cardio machines with individual iPod docks and televisions that help keep patrons motivated. Members also have access to Kids Care and even tanning booths.
The sun beats down on the giant tire, heating up the rubbery grooves; then hands emerge, grip the black edges, and hoist the entire mass upright. The tire stands, wavering a bit, before it is hurled onto its other side. Hoots of approval escape from the small collection of boot-camp onlookers before another intrepid participant faces off with the heavy thing. This is House Of Strength’s boot camp, where athletes push themselves toward better health on a path littered with weighty things such as tires and kettlebells. In addition to strength building, the camp also challenges guests with cardio training including hill sprints, circuits, and speed knitting. To complement the intense physical exercises, participants also receive nutrition tips calibrated to maximize the workouts' benefits.
With three locations in the Valley area, Roanoke/Botetourt Athletic Clubs offer extensive facilities, a focus on member convenience, and a variety of group-exercise classes a week. (Class descriptions and schedules here.) Membership to any of the clubs allows you to use all three facilities. The family membership includes the buyer, his or her spouse, and any children younger than 21 who live at home. Both membership options offer unlimited workouts at any of the locations, allowing patrons to keep their muscles nervous and on edge by constantly varying the time, frequency, and location of exercise. Fitness seekers at the Roanoke Athletic Club and Botetourt Athletic Club can make use of cardio theaters, gymnasiums, steam rooms, professional-grade racquetball courts, and the track. Indoor and outdoor pools allow aquaphiles to immerse themselves in the object of their love year-round, and pool-goers at the Botetourt location can combine the joy of swimming with low-friction delight in the form of a 23-foot water slide. Complimentary child-care is also available at the Roanoke and Botetourt locations. Members with little time can participate in lightning workout rounds at the smaller, more centrally located Zoom express fitness center in downtown Roanoke (however, your Groupon cannot be initially redeemed at this location).
Our idea on training is typically against the norm, which makes our workouts fun and different. Workouts are completed within group classes, which we try to cap at a maximum of 15 athletes with an average class size of 8. This provides you with the attention from the trainer that is necessary for your safety and success. Yo
