New Gold’s Gym Franchise Locations Are Opening Nationwide!

May 30, 2019

Gold’s Gym first opened its doors in 1965, when there was only one gym to serve 7 million people in the Los Angeles Area. We started at a time when gyms were just beginning to grow in popularity. One of our original members, Arnold Schwarzenegger, helped our brand fuel the bodybuilding and physique movement in the United States in the 1970s. Little did Arnold and his friend, Joe Gold know at the time, they were ahead of the rising fitness trend that would be taking California, and soon the world, by storm.

It has been more than 50 years since our historic beginning and as a result of our continuous innovation, our fitness franchise has become the #1 authority in the industry. Here’s what’s happening with the Gold’s Gym franchise in 2019.

Welcoming the Newest Gold’s Gym Fitness Centers

What does Gold’s Gym have in store for grand openings in 2019? We have been rolling out new locations since February of 2019, starting with our Middletown, New York location. We have locations in Mt.
