I belong to the Gold’s gym on Babcock in San Antonio Tx. I go take 3 classes a week and the studio has no air conditioning. Its has been this way since July possibly August. We had a fan that helped but it was stolen and never replaced. Texas is hot and its impossible to work out with out a/c and nothing is being done about a/c or buying a few fans to stir the air. You get our money now fix something. We just get excuses. My membership is up in December and unless something is done I will be moving to another gym and taking as many others members with me. By the way it took 6 months to replace a hair dryer. Where is the manager? Where is the concern for your clients?

Golds Gym has taken over the RUSH Fitness Center in Hixson & Chattanooga, Tennessee. Golds Gym has inherited a very messed up gym. There are weight plates laying everywhere. No one puts away their weights, The equipment are all falling apart. The pads on the equipment are cracked and torn open due to not wiping their sweat from the pads, and the Sauna bath does not work half the time. When it does work, it’s way below sweating temperature.
The management there is poor. It freezes during the winter time inside causes mussels to tear consistently all over the body. The music is either aerobics sound, or soft slow ballads. Boring music is a tough thing to work out in. Especially under a very heavy bar. I like most people love hard rock, but I’m willing to listen to RAP in order to make my point here. If you look into the gym, everybody is wearing head sets. No body wants to here the music the gym has to offer.

I work in retail, and it is ALWAYS good practice to understand that the customer is ALWAYS right. This should be a religion in Golds Gym, but right now it’s not in Tennessee.

It’s disgusting to see some senior citizen having to pick up or remove heavy plates from the equipment that another has left on. It’s especially disgusting to see a handicap having to remove these 45 lbs plates from the equipment. I have seen this not once, but repeatedly. Not to mention the smaller weaker women.

When management is sloppy, the atmosphere is very uncomfortable.

My question to you is: What are you going to do about it.

NOTHING like RUSH did?

On October 23, 2014 approximately around 5:30 PM I walked in to golds gym located at 35 S Stephanie St
Henderson, NV 89012
to get free pass before getting a membership, I was directed to fill out all the paperwork I had completed and return it to the front desk representative, then I was call in to meet with Josh the fitness consultant and we talked about the possibility and my fitness goals and the prices and types of memberships, I asked Josh due to my tight schedule if it’s possibly I could get a pass for at least one day to check out the atmosphere for the gym he immediately the client and he said he can’t do it he has to ask his manager, and Josh left to ask his manager three minutes later he comes back and he informed me that he will not give me pass because I’m not local as my ID from California by the fact I lived here for four months, I respectfully thanked him and I said if it’s possible I could get my application and my information back then Josh the fitness consultant asked me to wait for a second he will try again with his manager he could allow me to have a pass
3 to 5 minutes later Josh and the manager came back the manager was extremely confrontational and rude also he was constantly flexing his muscles despite the fact I’m way bigger than him and,
The way he looked at me and the way he spoke to me was unbelievable especially for level of management, and all the way to the and he rejected any pass for me and I said okay no problem I just need my information
And I told him I’m a part owner of energy company and I gave Josh my business card after he sought my business card he realizes he was talking to the wrong person in the wrong way and he agreed to give me four day pass

So my main problem with this location is
A the management skill is completely unacceptable and he is incompetent,

B Management should calm things down one not escalate them which this manager it exactly that

C when management having a conversation with client our member don’t approach the client as you want to fight with them and you give them a dirty look and flexing your muscle as you speak to them which I strongly recommend to review the camera or the videos if you have any

D I believe Josh The fitness representative was understanding and was respectful he just couldn’t make an exception due to the restriction he was on I completely understand

E if this situation happen under circumstances this manager could end up with that huge fight inside the gym as he disrespect people who are bigger than him in size and knowledge

F The location looked okay it was very likable but I just feel management intimidated by Jim members is not acceptable and it should not be an issue as that could escalate to a bigger problem

G I respectfully declined the past and I will not go to any goals gym instead I will keep my 24 hour fitness membership

H managements and gym representative should make people feel comfortable to be there not otherwise

I can be reached by phone or email
