How much ba ang monthly fee?
Ive lost my membership card and Golds charged me 500 bucks for it and it will take 30 days to get it. Ginto pala presyo nung card na yun... parang rip off...
How much are the packages/fees for Gold's Gym (Glorietta) now?
I worked out at Golds for about 2 years since 2003 because of our Corporate Account. Here are my 2 cents worth on their Makati branch:
Very accessible (specially if you are in Makati); it is inside the mall
Good and up-to-date equipment (not to mention the cool 30 TVs in front of the cardio area)
A lot of classes which you can attend (they have Pilates, Cosmic Cycling, Boxing, etc.)
Better value for your money (at least in comparison with Fitness First; I think you will only pay about 1,700 pesos for unlimited access as compared to FFís 2000 bucks)
Good looking women (the Viva Hot Babes work out in the Makati branch)
A lot of machine equipment (they have about 40 Treadmills)
Not so customer-friendly staff (I hate it when I enter the gym because they donít politely ask for my IDs since we are on a corporate account, the staff are nicer to customers who avail of the individual packages probably because they pay more- but this is just my thought )
Worse gym instructors (I hate it when they give me programs instantly yet they donít monitor if I am doing the routines correctly); they just usually assist celebrities over anyone else
Extremely strong airconditioning in the cardio area (you have to run a minimum of 30 minutes before you can sweat out)
Not-so-good-smelling towels (Iíd rather bring my own)
Few free weights equipment (you have to line up for the bars even on ordinary hours), and the space for free weights would only accommodate about 5 people at a time
Poor programs (I worked out consistently for 2 long years following their programs yet nothing seemed to happen)
I know itís wrong to compare but just to give you options:
If you have to choose between FF and Golds, I say go to Golds. But if you can find a cheaper hardcore gym around the area, they I suggest you explore it first. Golds gym is a bit OVERHYPED because of the celebrity endorsements and stuffs. Donít expect too much value for your money (unless you are an extremely independent gym buff who doesnít depend on gym instructors).
Probably the only reason I would enroll at Golds again (when I go back to the Philippines) is when Eclipse has not yet established their Makati branch. I am not promoting Eclipse or in any way, but the 2 years worth of workout at Golds is just comparable to the 2-week ď5 by 5Ē program given to me by Blakedaddy at eclipse.
Hope this helps
yung sa corporate package samin 1000 per month for 3 months... tapos pag madaming nagsignup e tuloy tuloy... may option kami na 1000 per month or 3000 for 3 months and you get an extra month free ( 4 months total). I got the 3000 for 4 months... 750 per month for a Gold's Gym membership isn't bad at all.
Is there a 'per visit' rate in Gold's gym?
If yes, how much kaya?
with regard to the harrashment in the sauna area...
its a fact that a gym is a church to gay men...(as quoted from Will and Grace)...
i,ve noticed that there are gays on the prowl esp in the sauna area...
if you are **** and assured of yourself...just ignore them...
these pipol are educated and i presume have good breeding...they will not force you into doing something if you just turn them down politely...
why feel threatened?
just my two cents...
i like golds gym because of their longer operating hours...
theyre open up to 12 midnite...
so i woudnt recommend that.
they offer cheaper packages compared to FF but when it comes to monthly rates or shorter programs, mas mahal sila.
yun ang catch
g4 branch is too crowded.
alabang, huge, pero ang hina ng showers and mainit parking
galleria's my fave, lapit sa office, lakas ng showers, gamay ko na equipments BUT konti lang and dami tao tuwing after 4:00pm
wish ko lang magdagdag pa sila ng space & equipments.
lalo na yung abs machine nila dun, pinagaagawan sus

grabe.. apat na male lockers ang nabuksan yesterday.. suspect was someone who availed of a day pass (same as a free trial?)
I lost my coin purse and belt at Gold's Gym Glorietta.
A crappy gym-- you're just paying for celebrity sightings.
Foul-mannered and incompetent marketing staff. They may have the "body" but definitely not the BRAINS.
Oh. And avoid Richard Gadier (yes, I dare name him) if you can. The most ill-educated self-proclaimed marketing person I've ever met. Where and how does Gold's Gym hire its people?
I'm so proud I no longer work out here.
