Our Sites are Selected and Designed to Stand Out

A successful Gold’s Gym location starts with an ideal build site. While we encourage franchisees to source their own local real estate professionals and contractors, we’re also happy to offer the expertise of our approved resources. Either way, before you sign any agreements or LOI, one of our representatives will meet with you to visit the location to make sure that you will develop in the most favorable conditions. We also review any lease agreements and monitor the construction to ensure new sites are built out to our standards.
