Gold’s Gym’s staff of body buffs spice up tedious workouts with an army of fitness amenities, such as cardio equipment and resistance machines, which work together to burn calories and tone muscles. For the human camaraderie necessary for great diary entrees, group fitness classes corral exercisers into sessions that deploy styles such as Pilates, spin, and Zumba. Add variety with an hour of Group Free Motion Sculpt (available at Deer Park only), which bulks strength while boosting balance and endurance, or BodyPump (available at Smithtown and Islip only), which wields weighted devices such as barbells and prized pumpkins to build lean muscle. After workouts raise internal temperatures and spark fears of spontaneous combustion, members cool off with a dip in the Islip location’s pool.
To amp up two months of self-svelting, certified personal trainers tweak technique in accordance with each client’s fitness goals during a one-hour one-on-one session. A nutritional counseling session enlightens exercisers to internal fitness, and a food-sensitivity test counts the number of insults a banana can hear before it starts to cry. For accentuation of newly acquired physiques, two standup tanning-bed sessions add a hint of healthy color to freshly toned tendons.
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. 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.
