Gold’s Gym has been the authority on fitness since 1965. It was then that fitness legend Joe Gold took the knowledge and expertise he gained from training at the world famous “Muscle Beach” and opened up the first Gold’s Gym on Pacific Avenue in Venice, California.
Opened long before the modern day health club existed, the original Gold’s Gym featured homemade equipment and an unrivaled dedication to getting results. It was an instant hit. Early fitness enthusiasts flocked to the gym, and in 1977, Gold’s Gym received international attention from “Pumping Iron” – a bodybuilding documentary starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno.
Today Gold’s Gym is the most recognized name in fitness serving more than 3 million members in 38 states and 22 countries around the world. Now more than ever, Gold’s Gym realizes that strength comes in many forms…whether it’s the strength to be a better parent, the strength to overcome diabetes or the strength to be a better athlete.
