I find it incredibly irresponsible, for Golds, out of Irving, Texas, to charge my credit card $120.00 for personal training I did not receive, make it impossible to talk to a real person at corporate, to get a refund, cause me to pay my cc bill with the charge still on my card (undisputed), then take more than 13 business days to get a check to me as a refund!!! BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE! How well would this work if I did that to GOLDS GYM? As a Silver Sneakers member, Im anxious to inform the company paying my membership about my experience, as well as beginning a search for a "New Gym"!!

If Gold's Gym wants to keep up their brand overseas, they need to do a better job of vetting their people in charge. I know of one branch in Egypt where the guy running it isn't even certified in the classes he teaches. I know of numerous clients he has injured. He claims to be American but he sounds Russian to me. I'm sure it is hard for Gold's to watch every branch, especially the ones overseas, but the company really needs to tighten up because people like that are giving them a bad name. A lot of people I know have already switched gyms.

Not very happy about recent price increase without ANY notification. My son is a high school student, goes faithfully and I don't think that was right to raise the cost for loyal customers!

Love the Gold's Gym that we recently joined. Very friendly folks, clean place (although is smells a bit like rubber-- guess that's because it is new). All the equipment is brand new, and what a variety.

The pool is great too. Use it a lot. Today I got in the pool and noticed it was dirty (had some stuff in the bottom). Mmm - mental note to tell the front desk about it. While I was still swimming laps, the staff came in and cleaned it up. Awesome. Keep up the good work folks.

Golds gym is having problems in several areas, The latest is the rule in our gym is that you cannot pose for competition. I Thought that Gold's was founded as a bodybuilders gym, but one of my friends was told he couldn't pose for a competition.

It's too bad that we're trying hard to be a fitness center rather than a GYM!

I agree. Golds still is using that 'special for you today only' pricing model that I really dislike. With that said, they do a good job otherwise. This is something they should repair. Just go to a month to month thing, guys!

I recently joined Gold's Gym after several years as a loyal TMCA member. Mainly, I am a swimmer. The Y has just fallen down on their facilities upkeep to the point that I figured, hey why not give another place a shot.

So far, Gold's has been a great experience. The staff seem to be very helpful and always responsive. The facility that I use is brand new, so every piece of equipment is state of the art. They took over an old Randalls grocery store that had closed and by and large did a fine job in repurposing the space. One thing I would say that is not great is the odor. Everything being brand new, there is a distinct smell of rubber in the place. Not really overpowering, but it is enough that you are immediately noticing it whenever you walk in.

Also, I will say that Gold's policy of varying their cost structure is a bit annoying. They really make it complex with all the options, and I just think this makes the experience more like you're buying a membership from a used car salesman or something. Golds executives, if you are listening, drop this practice and you'll do a lot better.

Also, just make everything month to month. I was walking out the other day and a nice African American couple were arguing with a staff member because they needed to break their contract and the staff person was saying "you owe us for the rest of the year". So, yes that's what they signed up for, but you are REALLY pissing off people who already have had to drop a workout program for some reason (probably financial) and this just rubs salt in the would. At least the YMCA ie better about having a simple monthly fee for individual / couple / family that you can change at any time. If only they kept their pools a little cleaner. ;-)

@GoldsGym I was told by the Peoria manager, things will get fixed when they get fixed. And if I don't like it find another gym.
