    Hi guys.

    I was hoping anyone could give me feedback about Gold's Gym?

    I've checked their local website, and it's not very informative. Personal experiences would be greatly appreciated.

    Was thinking of enrolling there this summer, (not sure which branch would be best) so I need help!

    Thanks, PhilMUG! :)

    I can vouch for Gold's. I am a lifetime Slimmers member but decided to get membership with Gold's. I workout in Glorietta and Alabang. For me, the better one is Alabang.

    The facilities are good and well maintained. The shower area is generally clean. They also have different classes like yogalites, cycling, aero, street dancing, etc.

    ;)

    Thanks for the feedback, guys.

    I've tried out Slimmers a few years back (around 5 years ago?) and Fitness First, more recently. Slimmers was utterly lacking in facilities, while Fitness First, while okay, was becoming overcrowded and the equipment was getting worn out.

    As far as I know, Gold's has branches in Alabang, Glorietta, Galleria, and Greenhills. Anywhere else?

    coolpix32: sir, where in Alabang is the Gold's Gym branch? Is that the one near the Starbucks across ATC?

    Thanks so much again, guys!

    I work out at Glorietta branch and one thing I love about Gold's is people go there to actually exercise.

    Bad --- It can get crowded after office hours and it's hot during the afternoon (or maybe because it's summer haha)
    Classes are good :)
    The locker area is pretty old though so I don't shower there since I live fairly nearby.

    I still like Gold's Glorietta. I actually have no complaints about it. Yup, it does get fairly crowded between 4-8PM, but which gym isn't crowded at that time? The showers could be better, but I don't shower din there, I walk to and from the gym, that's my warm up na kasi. I agree, people go there to work out, you won't see a whole lot of socializing unlike Fitness First.

    Gold's Glorietta isn't really as bad. I've seen worse (and I do mean terrible). Locker area is not pristine but not dingy. The shower area is relatively okay for me. Not antiseptic clean but forgiveable (again, I've seen worse) . And yes, it can be very crowded (like all other gyms in makati).

    Gold's Alabang is so far the best in all criteria mentioned below. :cool:

    A family friend gave us gift certificates, each worth 20,000 bucks, and the 20k cheque is supposedly good for a 4 month membership.

    Hope that gives you an idea, more or less, since I myself have no other reference point for their membership costs. :)

    I think you can get 15 months for about 13K. i work out in Glorietta but my home gym is alabang. i like alabang better but the trainers in glorietta are way more helpful. i think some of the trainers in alabang are lazy to spot.

    Sorry, me again, just wanted to ask: If I enroll in one gym (e.g. Alabang), can I still go to the other branches of Gold's Gym?

    Gold's bought the rights of the old gym along winson and named it Gold's

    i dont think those intructors really assist the clients... only those who enrolled in their Private Training sessions. (actually all gyms are like that)

    If you avail of their annual unlimited/passport membership, you will be able to workout in all branches, everyday, this is their most expensive package, not sure but somewhere around 70,000.
    There is other package, limited to 300 (not really sure) visits to specific branch (plus 14 visits for every other branches, in period of one year) which costs around 35,000 and there is a cheaper one which gives you 144 visits to specific branch (plus 14 visits for every other branches, in period of one year) which costs around 16,000 pesos, but again, their prices always changing, specially in summer when it's at its highest and best deal will happen in July (I'll renew mine in July as well).
