Joe Gold Rolling Over in his Grave.


#1

Then

Now

Bet Joe Gold didnt imagine this when he sold the franchies name.


#2

The world is changing, for the worse.


#3

Hope he is still Resting in Peace


#4

Stuff like this really gets me thinking if I really wanna joing the Gold's they're opening over here.


#5

There are still plenty of Gold's around that haven't gone all Planet Fitness pizza day special.


#6

See, this is why I lift stark raving nude in my garage. I'd get raped in the asshole inside of two minutes if I tried that shit at Gold's. Goddamnit, what is this country coming to.


#7

NNNNNOOOOOO, stop. Do you mow the grass nude?


#8

No, but I squat ass-to-grass nude.


#9

So where can a guy go for real muscleheads lifiting real weights?

<-- Look at me. I'm probably the smallest guy on this site. But I out work most of the gigantic d-bags in my gym. Where could I go for some real weights and inspiration?

And honestly, I couldn't even make it through that second video. Fucking horrible.


#10

Go to Push's house, isnt everything in Montana like 4 hours away anyway? :slight_smile:


#11

Some franchise gyms suck. A lot don't.

It's location dependent.


#12

More like Balls to floor.


#13

I lift at Golds in SD... Unfortunately it is not very hardcore BUT there is a separate outdoor gym with big old school pictures of BBers all around... and you can lift shirtless if you want. Thats kinda cool


#14

Depressing as hell.


#15

Manchester NH Golds has pizza one day a week, the guy said, its Healthy.
I said its PIZZA.


#16

is the pizza free?


#17

I've had some very healthy pizza.

My 24Hour affiliate here in Taiwan was recently bought out by World Gym. It's still a den of wierdness and sissyness and dumbbells all over the floor and grown men walking on the treadmill at 1.8kph.


#18

..... pondering the daily drive 2hrs each way to work out...


#19

Nope

All photoshop, son!


#20

Yeah, this.

The Gold's I work at kicks ass.
