Disappointing all the way around. To be reprimanded for being female and lifting weight that is 'too much' is ridiculous. To have membership removed because your own staff seeks advice from others on how to train is even more ridiculous. If you want a gym where people are there to seriously get fit, this isn't the place for you. And make sure you don't know more than the management or PF trainers, because if anyone asks you for advice, you'll get removed. if you want a gym to just oogle others at or to hook up at, eat pizza and bagels..then this is the place for you!
Upon signing up here through Will my decision to sign paperwork rested on the question of can I kick and punch the two bags Gold's has. Will stated yes and showed me the bags. I signed up. After a few days I was told I can no longer kick the bag upstairs only punch, and that I would have to move down to the other bag that was for kicking. Several months went by on the other bag and I was approached by a very ignorant manager who told me I can not kick the bag anymore. I attempted to cancel my contract and that was denied. Staff there is unprofessional, disrespectful, and ignorant. Some of who are on mind altering enhancement chemicals to boost muscle production. The people staff let's in are mean, rude, and ignorant as well as I never had the opportunity to carry on one descent conversation with anyone. Everyone time I entered I was addressed as man by staff signing me in. Keep in mind I am an honorably discharged veteran from the Infantry and this is the professionalism/courtesy staff shows to me as a customer or patron. The list can go on and on. A for your info is if you feel like you have been taken advantage of call the Virginia State Comission and get the registered agents name and address to serve him with civil papers. I am working on that now but this franchise is good at hiding this info. An indication that they are not honorable nor respectable. Anyways I am going to blog at other places to hit their Google rating. Also, there is a thing called cost per click. Every time you click on Golds Gym through Google there is a charge this company has to pay. Just keep clicking the link to cost them more money lol.
Katie Shaw is an Awesome personal Trainer and since I have been having her train me my body is very fit! I also love the GGX classes like Bodypump and Zumba along with others! Thanks Katie for getting me fit! See you at the GYM!!
