Gold’s 25,000-square-foot facility houses squadrons of equipment to eliminate lines and hosts family-friendly group classes to whip patrons of all ages into shape. Teaching six days a week at Gold’s, seven-time world karate champion and founder of Tae Bo Billy Blanks leads exercisers through his body-sculpting fusion of tae kwon do and dance. In Tae Bo Impact, Blanks helps guests hone their boxing skills to prepare for handling especially rowdy dance battles with speed drills and sparring. In addition to Tae Bo, Gold’s instructors lead a schedule of group courses within a dedicated spinning room and yoga and Pilates studio. Pilates Reformer students take advantage of Stott V2Max machines, which tone cores and extend limbs with spring-loaded resistance.
In addition to endless rows of free weights, cardio- and strength-training equipment awaits guests embarking on calorie-burning sessions. After beefing up in the gym, patrons can soothe their muscles and sweat off any lingering birthday-party face paint in the sauna and steam-room facilities.
