Gold’s Gym, awarded Best Health Club by the Vacaville Reporter, fills its clean, expansive domain with next-generation fitness gadgets such as a hypoxic chamber that simulates training at 9,000 feet. Members can hop on nearly 100 cardio machines, hone their ironsmithing 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. During one of the three months, Groupon holders can drop off a child at Gold’s Gym’s Kids Club (extra children cost $15/month). There, youngsters 6 months to 11 years old keep busy with crafts, games, and before-and-after finger paintings of their parents’ bodily transformations.
Up to 15 different group classes populate Gold’s Gym’s schedule morning to evening, seven days a week. Zumba sessions employ Latin rhythms to get hips and hearts moving, and cardio kickboxing teaches students to defend themselves against excess calories and close talkers. Indoor-cycling, Pilates, and step courses round out the health haven’s fitness offerings.
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. Many Gold's Gym locations stockpile futuristic amenities, such as cardio machines with individual iPod docks and televisions that help keep patrons motivated.
