When you are thinking about your need for exercise for your good health you often look at it as an investment in your body. And if you can get the convenience of not leaving home by buying your own home gym, free weights or a treadmill you won’t have to join a gym and leave the comfort of your home. It has been proven that with the equipment close by people are more likely to exercise regularly, as the main benefit in an exercise program is consistency and repetitiveness.
Before the proliferation of alternative for home work-out equipment Joe Gold saw an opportunity in 1965 to open a gym and started out in Venice, California. Even then, the Californians were leading the way in fitness, bodybuilding and an interest in health and good-looking bodies. Gold’s Gym expanded all over the USA as a franchise opportunity over the next 40 years or so. Now their footprint is even bigger, at one point being known as the largest co-ed gym chain with 3-million members using over 600 gyms in 25 countries. The fitness craze spread and became a global phenomenon.
Back in the original days, Venice Beach was considered “the mecca of bodybuilding”, and the Gold’s Gym there was visited frequently by Arnold Schwarzenegger. For those of you who a re movie buffs and exercise fanatics you will remember the 1977 movie Pumping Iron.
By building its pervasive brand they had the opportunity to expand into lots of other areas of products and services. You’ll likely find Gold’s Gym products in your favorite local retail fitness store.
Now the equipment you would be able to use in their gyms (or maybe have at one point over these many years) is available for take-home! By combining a lot of machines capabilities into their Gold’s Gym Power Flex Strength Training Machine you can get all the benefits of a full gym at home in one machine. Being able to bring strength training, muscle toning and cardio circuit training to a single fitness machine has made them a very viable choice for the home fitness fanatic. For body building enthusiasts there are 3 workout stations you’d have access to at a health club. Body builders like to use the pull-up station, the dip station and the vertical knee-raise station. The full machine has 9 stations with a possible 65 exercises to go through on your own.
The home gym series also has the Gold’s Gym Power Series to consider – so there’s not just a one size fits all mentality at Gold’s Gym.
There is another option for the real pros out there that costs more but may be worth it. It’s the Gold’s Gym Pro System.
