I was a member at golds gym for 7 years. Over those years I have come to learn that the owners of this chain of Golds Gym are the biggest con artists with sleazy scams encouraging members to pay large sums of money to gain perks throughout the gym, while later taking those privileges away. Over the years I have witnessed many illegal scams especially where there was no running water in the building and no water was able to be given to members, while the management sat back and said just deal with it. From a legal standpoint you cannot be open without being able to supply your customers with a free form of water. Next, I feel utterly disturbed by the fact that the assistant manager was kept after it was posted in the Reading Eagle that he allegedly took sexual advantage over a high school boy. How is that allowed after the Penn State Jerry Sandusky case forcing people working around kids to be background tested, especially since there is daycare within the gym? It has also come to my attention that management has told their employees that they can take these employees commission while they are on duty even if the employees did all the work. The manager has also been telling all current members that wish to quit golds cannot return at their current rate even though that was a perk given to us when we joined under contract. He also said that he would not lower members rates to $19 a month even though he was given permission by corporate. When you ask the manager if they will ever change the hours back to the original ones he just tells you never. How will they survive business wise when they have the worst hours in all of Berks county? Just because you have the Golds gym name doesn't mean you can have poor business skills and people will stay. All in all, this facility has the worst business skills and the managers are also some of the rudest people I have ever met. I hope some day they will understand what it means to be a good manager.

I absolutely love working out at Keys 2 Fitness! The service and trainers are great! Right now I am working with Nikki and she pushes me to work harder. Really knows her stuff and fun to work with. Definitely would recommend this place.
I have had personal training from other larger gyms, and I have always felt that the trainers were not truly invested in your workout. At Keys 2 Fitness, it is evident that the personal trainers are truly invested in your well-being, and they really push you to work hard and do your best. I train with Nikki, who is super motivating and fun! She keeps me on track and focused on my workout, and is always giving me pointers to correct my form, as well as gives me feedback on my times and progress. She is patient, and really works with me to ensure that I have a successful workout. I have also had positive interactions with Bryan and Sam - two other trainers at the gym, who are also clearly dedicated to seeing you succeed!The boot camps are great workouts to do in addition to your training sessions, and unlike other classes I've been to at other gyms. They involve strength training and high intensity training to keep you constantly moving so you don't get bored.
I was a true gym novice when I joined Keys 2 Fitness 6 weeks ago, but with the support of an amazing trainer (Nikki's the best!!!) I am meeting my fitness goals and gaining confidence, and having fun doing it! Contact Keys 2 fitness today! You won't regret it!
I absolutely love keys 2 fitness. All the trainers are excellent and have their own special style. Right now I go to Nikki, who is upbeat, encouraging and all around a great trainer. I have never been in such great shape and have never felt stronger. It is a close group and you start to get to know the other clients and everyone is encouraging toward each other. I have never stuck with a workout plan or been consistent until I came here.
I love this place! I have been working out for years, and have never seen results like I have since starting here in October 2015. It's so wonderful to have workouts tailored to personal goals and ability, and have accountability from a one on one session. I would highly recommend this place, and Nicki, my personal trainer. She's the best!!! :)
Great gym! Joined almost a year ago and have seen awesome progress. Sam is a wonderful trainer and gets results!
Keys2Fitness is the best gym I've joined by FAR! Everyone is so nice and personable and make you feel so welcome- trainers AND clients! If you feel intimidated to start personal training, DON'T! They work with people of all different endurance/training levels. Nikki and Sam (who I predominantly work with) are GREAT trainers and push me every single workout! If you are looking to get a personal trainer, stop looking and come join us in all the fun! I promise you won't be disappointed!
Been coming here for a year now and I've never felt better! What an awesome group of trainers. Thanks Keys!
I've been with keys for a year already and have seen a great difference in my body ! I feel fit and am able to do so much more athletically than I ever thought I could. Couldn't have done it without the power couple trainers Nikki and Sam !! They are great and know what to do to help others achieve their goals!! Best gym around !
