International Gold’s Gym Openings in 2019
March 29, 2019
Around the world, Gold’s Gym reigns as one of the most widely recognized names in health and fitness. Serving 3+ million members every day at our 750+ locations across six continents, Gold’s Gym is the world’s #1 full-service fitness franchise. Our recent and upcoming international growth demonstrates the reach and influence of the Gold’s Gym brand, and the overall strength of our franchise system.
A Legacy of Excellence
Our foundation in 1965 by actor, bodybuilder and entrepreneur Joe Gold, set the bar high. We strive never to settle for less than the absolute best, carrying on Joe Gold’s legacy through continuous innovation and dedication to our mission to help others achieve their potential through fitness. It’s how we’ve remained at the top of our competitive and ever-growing industry. And it’s why franchisees and developers in countries worldwide trust the Gold’s Gym name and can’t wait for their chance to grow our brand on their home turf.
New International Gold’s Gym Locations
Our franchise development team continues to work tirelessly to bring the Gold’s Gym experience to more and more people around the world. Never compromising on delivering the very best in fitness, we’re proud to announce a staggering 15 new international Gold’s Gym openings since the start of 2019. And the beginning of this month saw the launch of the very first Gold’s Gym in Istanbul, Turkey.
Support Fosters Growth
The global success of our franchise system comes, in large part, from our focus on franchisee support. After 30+ years of franchising, our franchisees can take advantage of some of the most comprehensive support and processes available in the industry. Whether it’s through powerful vendor partnerships, pre-grand opening and launch guidance, marketing support or anything in between, we’ve got our franchisees covered through every step of their ownership journey. Plus, periodic meetings with Field Business Consultants help Gold’s Gym owners optimize their operations and maximize the viability of their business. Our far-reaching franchisee support has helped initiate hundreds of successful Gold’s Gym launches worldwide.
Offering the Best Worldwide
Since the successful rollout of our newest member offerings in the U.S. – like our GOLD’S STUDIO® program, which includes boutique-style group exercise classes like GOLD’S FIT®, GOLD’S CYCLE™, GOLD’S BURN™ – we’ve been putting the systems in place to implement those offerings internationally. We’ve already seen the successful launch of GOLD’S STUDIO® in Gold’s Gym clubs in Egypt, and have several current and future Master Franchisees globally who can hardly wait to bring the program into their gyms.
We’re looking forward to another year of amazing Gold’s Gym franchise growth throughout our international markets. In the months and years ahead, we’ll be focusing on bringing new Master Franchisees into the Gold’s Gym brand and overseeing the development of even more new gyms in countries throughout Europe, South America, China, the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia, as well as Iraq, Australia, and New Zealand. It’s a very exciting time to be a part of the world’s leading fitness franchise.
