Gold’s Gym opened more than 45 years ago and today features an impressive array of next-generation fitness gadgets, a results-oriented focus, and clean facilities. One of Gold’s Gym’s certified personal trainers will test clients’ strength, flexibility, typing speed, and body-fat percentage, among other metrics, to determine their biological age before designing a personalized fitness regimen based on their fitness needs and goals. The personal trainer will also offer a brief nutritional assessment, breaking down clients’ current diet habits and offering advice about resisting the twinkie’s siren song to help them to achieve their goals and make the most of their one- or two-month gym experience.
Neophyte iron workers can then follow up with regular attendance at the gym, where they can hop on a cardio machine, pump up in a controlled manner on strength-training machines, tighten up in the abdominal and functional stretching area, or stick with lifting huge, heavy pieces of metal and commercial chest freezers. Both Eugene and Springfield host group fitness sessions, infusing class styles such as Zumba, Pilates, yoga, boxing, and cycling sessions with an inspiring dose of camaraderie.
The trainers at International Fitness have one goal: to help their clients achieve healthy lifestyles with internationally influenced exercise routines. The roster of classes includes Indian yoga, Brazilian-influenced Zumba dance classes, and Western weightlifting. In addition to leading group fitness classes, the instructors can map out training and nutrition plans to help clients meet their fitness goals. The sessions can include climbing the gym's rock wall to build lean muscle mass or demolishing the gym's rock wall to prepare for a career as a bulldozer.
