This is where to get real results!As a woman in South Beach, its not easy to get a good workout and its also impossible to find places that care enough to help you. At Gold's Gym South Beach, the one on Alton Road and 14th, they've got a really good program for losing weight and getting toned up. Its the only gym in South Beach that truly has the goods and delivers what is offerred. Also, when I travel, I go to Gold's Gym in Dallas and in Orlando and I went to one in Dominican Republic. The staff are super friendly. When I came in first in early 2008, I was 25 lbs overweight and between training and working out, I am down three dress sizes and at my target weight. Everywhere else I have gone no one helped me like here. Thank you to the staff and to the trainers and group exercise instructors at Gold's Gym!
Gold's Gym only wants your money - Rip-off ArtistsGold's Gym on South Beach is a rip-off and the operations are horrible. The staff changes monthly if not weekly. The owner walks around like king of the hill only listening to his employees when you complain instead of clients. He should be concerned about his gym and people he hires to work front desk. Front Desk is very difficult to deal with because they are toooo busy socializing and will miss up your credit card - I know first hand. They over charged my credit card with manual fees and blamed me for it. There is a reason why the gym is still empty after 5 years in service. Nice facilities are not enough, you cannot rip people off anywhere, especially in a small community like South Beach. There are better gyms in South Beach with highly trained staff, no gimmicky fees and service charges. Their general manager is worst than the owner......... Customer retention is not a priority.....stealing and lying is.
Thank you to Gold's Gym South BeachMy friend introduced me to Gold's Gym at a breast cancer walktathon that they were the sponsors of.
Change to Gold's in South BeachI want to share an experience I have had now for just over 1 year as of this writing. I was always looking for a place that I could just work out in peace and make gains. The problem is that wasn't really happening, I mean I work out 4-5 days a week and run too but my body wasnt really changing. Thats when a friend of mine invited me to Gold's Gym when I was working out at another club and running on the beach. I was surprised to find what is a really good space in a city with very few. The club apparently was built to be a gym from the floor up and theres no beems in the way. The equipment variety blew the other club away and they included worldwide access to golds all over. What really separated them is the people there asked me if I was pleased with my results from before I joined. I said No and was kind of complaining about my genetics. They did not laugh at me, instead advised that 99% of people are like me and have to work for everything they have, but work smart. I was assigned a trainer and now have broken through the old barriers - thanks to the staff at Gold's Gym in South Beach and in Orlando where my companys headquarters is. I can go back and forth and dont have to join another gym. Thanks to the team at Golds!!! .Carl
Bad bad publicityI am just outraged by Gold's gym desperate need to get new members. Upon the sudden closing of Energy Fitness Club back in February, Gold Gym is now sending out bills to Energy's ex members based on the fact that they were "sold" Energy's members contracts. Basically, we are now FORCED to pay Gold Gym's. They are claiming to have sent letters to all members (which by the way, I have not been able to validate) informing that we had one month to respond, or else we would become automatically members. Aside from the fact that the Gold staff is just rude, they are unable to provide neither copy of the letter sent out, nor copy of the contract which would stipulate that Energy would be entitled to pass on these contacts to a third party (Gold Gym in this instance). Their response: either you pay, or your credit will be affected. Are you KIDDING??????? This is information I just can not wait to share with the Miami Herald and other media.
Bad people to do business withYes I was a member at Energy Gym and the day they closed there were four health clubs in front of the gym offering memberships. Golds Gym was one of them.
Sharks!I am a victim of the Energy/Gold's Scam, and I am outraged at the way I have been treated. My personal character has been insulted by a manager who never met me, only because I complained that I had no desire to join their club and that their claims to having a contract with me were BS.
Open 24 Hours Thank you!!!!The new equipment in their studios and on the floor is very cool. They are open 24 hours when no one else is and this Golds Gym has some very specialized studios with great instructors not found anywhere else. Try their abs classes and enroll for a whole body vibration class and you will open up new ways to keep your fitness interesting. Thanks to Golds I have lost 6lbs since Christmas and am on my way to accomplishing my first goal.
RockinI was a member of Energy and it closed down with no notice, so when I found out Golds took over the memberships, I tried it out and have been ever since. Before this I was at Crunch and Crunch went bankrupt and closed down 2 or 3 clubs. My boyfriend was a member of Idol and they went out of business overnight. Gold's environment is just more comfortable than the want to be spas that have tried to populate hotels and condos. South Beach Golds is where I workout and love it. I recommend Gold's, their equipment expertise is better and they have designed areas for women and really custom machines that I never had at other clubs.
RUDE!I just called to ask about membership options and the man on the phone was unbelievable rude! He refused to tell me how much a yearly membership costs. Apparently in order to get any information you have to go in for an hour. This jerk then proceeded to tell me that the gym was free and all i had to do was come in for a meeting. He continued by insulting me which led to me hanging up the phone on him. Why would I want to go in for an hour meeting with someone who insults me?
Scam membershipsI wish I could rate this negative stars. After purchasing several private sessions, I was treated like a beggar because I didn't want to sign a membership for a year (even though I spent a small fortune for a personal trainer). Fortunately that rudeness saved me from what I've found is a scam. They make more money on people who don't come in but are forced to pay for a year (or longer if they don't give 30 days notice when it AUTOMATICALLY RENEWS FOR ANOTHER YEAR). Stay away. Go to Proper Form Fitness, which is where I went and I am so so happy.
Nah....i visited this gold's gym while in town on business.
