i visited this gold's gym while in town on business.
my impression: its a serious, serious waste of money. not worth it. its very, very average (at best). do not fall for the hype about a sobe gold's. its not what you are hoping for. read the other reviews.
$25 for a day pass? and one that doesnt allow you to leave and come back just a few hours later? one that doesnt allow you to park in the Gold's parking lot? here is the reply from them when I sent an email asking about a day fee: ""We do have one week and daily fees since Gold's Gym South Beach is visited by many people from all over the world. The day fee is $25 flat and the one week is $105 plus tax.""
but, the ""day fee"" is a walk in the door once, and dont expect to come back the same day fee. as I was not staying at the beach, I had thought of working out some, walking about sobe, and exercising some more as the traffic thinned. after all, I had payed a $25 ""day fee"". but....no can do! once they have your money, its curtains, my friend.
and they lie on their website, too, saying its a three story gym. here are their words, from their website: ""Alton Road, where you will see the 3 story Gold's Gym building on the left.""
ITS A LIE! its a two story gym. what more do you need to know than that? they lie on their freakin website about how big it is! pretty hilarious...the jokes are obvious. and the two stories they have...they're not so big. and dont perform so well, either!
i recommend this gym if you want to pay too much for a sub-par facility. and, if you think you are going to see a bunch of beautiful people there, this certainly wasnt my experience.
