    The greatest gym on the planet. Absolutely honored to have gotten a great workout here, even if it's just a day. Motivational, historical, and not for nothing the members are super nice. Love it here.

    Awesome gym if you like being in an environment where you're surrounded by others who are serious about their training. No pool/steam/sauna - or as they say at gold's, "p$&@y s#*t."

    Fun fact, gym-goers: In a recent study, participants who did something different every day for a month lost, on average, an extra pound a week (without diet changes). Bust out of your rut today!

    Best gym ever. Inspiration drips from the walls. No spa. Equipment is rusty and old. Smells a bit funky sometimes. Great place for a serious workout.

    Another tip : they could add or replace some oldies with Hoist and techno gym modern advanced equipment. The second hall is a Shame for such a gym. Also no more T-bar rows ??!

    One of my favorite places in the world to train, especially in the outdoor area in the LA sun!! Always a famous face to be seen too!!

    This place is more of a museum than a regular gym! That being said you will break your personal records in weightlifting here.

    Gold's Gym is considered the Mecca of bodybuilding in the US. Plenty of celebrities train here & the gym is full of hardcore, pro-bodybuilders like Arnold Schwarzenegger getting ripped every day.

    I used to help spot a man here every now and again in early ‘70s. I hear he went into politics.

    Love this gym though mafia of old trainers in the morning talking loud and monopolizing equipment is a disturbance !!

    Another thing so sad to see the members never putting back the dumbbells in order and breaking pins to add weights to machines. Sports performance means also respect of equipment and others

    Good thing to know on your max lift days: One of the butterfly machines in the back room goes way heavier than the other two.

    This place is great for working out during off peak hours. Beware of the gorilla juice heads who act as if they own the joint.

    If you take group exercise classes especially yoga...be prepared for people to be rude and cause distractions by coming in late.

    Fitness is not just about weights. Abs are made in the kitchen. For a free PT session talk to Travis Kindl and mention this tip on 4square.
