When me and my boyfriend wanted to try the "free 7days trial" we were told we can cancel it anytime if after 7days we decided not to keep it. So due to busy schedule we cancel the membership, and Henry (the guy i did the paper work with) said he's going to put our membership on hold for three months and when we're more comfortable with our schedule we can always call back in August to let them know if i want to continue or not, we can cancel anytime without any obligation. I thought that was a good plan. Later i found out im being charged $7 a month for every month my membership s on hold. I didn't care it was only $7. Then in beginning of July my back statement said i was being charged by Gold's Gym and so did my boyfriend's. We tried to call and speak to Henry but the receptionist kept saying we have to come in for that. I was disappointed in them for false information and trust with my credit card, and that is the main reason of me really wanted to cancel at this point. So we went to the gym to cancel the membership and Henry didn't know what to do the manager just told him to put us on the 30 days notice so we won't get charged. And so i let the charge of July go through, didn't want to argue with them since i can't get the money back anyways. So thought everything was settled and before leaving we asked them " So we're not going to be charged anymore after this month?" and we were told NO. Now this month is August my bank statement said me and my boyfriend are being charged again. I called them and all the manager said was i cant tell who's telling the truth who's not, i can only according to paper work, and here it says your last due date is 08/01. WHAT THE EFF is that ?? This is the reason why i would NEVER come back to ANY of their gyms, and would make sure everyone i know who wants to go to the gym hear this story. And after all what i hate the most about this place is their way of telling us about the membership, the way they work, their communication with their clients. I dont know what to call these people, liars, not honest enough, or not trustworthy ????? But if you think you're getting som type of deal, discount, or anything sounds good to your ears, IT'S NOT !!! Double check, triple check, Please for your own good. I am a victim and this is a true story of my first GG's experience and i am above PISSED !!!

Many of the reviews on citysearch are probably from people who work here. I know many places that make their employees write fake reviews. If you go to a google search you will see the real reviews. They act very nice when you go in and distract you from what you're doing just so that you can sign up without reading the contract. They don't tell you that they are locking you into a contract and there is a fee to cancel. They tell you about classes but don't tell you that many of them cost extra and aren't included in your fee. I complained that I was given false information when I signed up and the guy tried to lie and say he was giving me a discount when what he was really doing was changing my membership plan which took away some of my benefits! This is one of the only gyms in l.a that won't allow you to go to it's other gyms anytime -something they also don't tell you. Once I complained the happy demeanor of the staff quickly changed. It seems they're only nice while tricking you into signing up-after that forget about it!
You can get free weights anywhere-this gym is not worth the money you will pay for it.
I was a member for over 7 years until they violated my renewal terms and tried to get me to pay a much higher renewal rate. I complained the the General Manager, but he did nothing. Rather than take them to small claims court, I just moved to another gym in the same part of Hollywood.

I have been injured a few times at Gold's Gym Hollywood, because of machines that are not maintained regularly. The repairs are monkey rigged and parts are replaced many times with items that are not proper or safe. The gym is filthy as well as the bathrooms and locker rooms.
When you join you sign a contact that says if you are injured on the equipment Gold's does not accept liability. My front Deltoid muscle was torn last March by a piece or equipment that the bushings were loose and when doing the exercise properly the machine slipped because of the loose fittings and it ripped my deltoid, and caused a neck injury as well.
Gold's is fighting the claim - but you can not contract out negligence. UNSAFE, UNMAINTAINED EQUIPMENT.
Anyone else who has had similar claims please contact me... we will not sit still and let them get away with negligence at the safety of the members. Contact me at: email@example.com o m

This is a fine place to work out if you don't mind cold air conditioned air being blown onto your face while you are on any cardio machine . If you are effected by cold air I would not recommend wasting your time or money.
Aside from that, it is a moderately maintained and moderately clean. It's nothing fancy but, you do get what you pay for. Parking is available one block away.

I've been at this gym for 3 years and I couldn't be happier. yeah, there is plenty of free-weight, plate-loaded, and traditional machines for pumping iron, as well as numerous cardio contraptions....however, it should be known that the gym has an extensive list of classes, all taught by highly qualified, energetic, and engaging instructors...everything from yoga and pilates to kick-boxing, hip-hop, or spinning. i barely even lift weights at all anymore (i used to live for it!) but i still feel like i'm at the best gym for just about anything i want to do for my workouts! also, the nice tanning beds and delicious smoothie options certainly add to the experience!

If you're looking for the latest fly-by-night trend, this isn't the gym for you. Although the Hollywod face-lift last year added a trendy juice bar, this gym is still aimed to the serious weight-lifter and excerciser. Gold's Gym has all the right equipment and layout for those who come to workout and lift weights. The equipment is always in working order and even during peak time it isn't too hard to get on the machines you need. There's also a great selection of classes from step to yoga.

Lifting weights at Gold's Venice felt like working out at the penitentiary. Not so at ultra fancy Gold's Hollywood! This gym boasts modern equipment that's seldom broken, three well-equipped rooms for classes, and cardio bikes that are hooked up to the internet. Fresh flower arrangements at the front desk and the in-house juice/smoothie bar round out the amenities. Be on the lookout for famous faces.
