    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!

    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.

    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 ??!

    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.

    The legendary Venice gym where all the action heroes started. Look for Missy and her hardcore training classes - nothing better! Brought to you by THE EXPENDABLES opening August 13!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
