I read this week that my gym is being taken over by Gold's, not sure if this is a good thing or not.
I am a little bit hesistant as my gym has quite a nice history, with Mike Mentzer having moved to my town to train here in 1980 after he lost the Olympia (at the time it was state of the art). It's got a load of nautilus gear and other unique hand made equipment at the moment, and a mere 6 cardio machines. Now all of sudden we're getting a "juice bar" and "body pump" classes. Not sure if we'll lose the 24 hour access passes either. Any one familiar with the Gold's chain?
