I have been a member here for about 3 months now. From the moment I started, I have felt at home. It has all the amenities of other gyms and then some (indoor track, basketball court, classes, pool, ...sauna, steam room, whirlpool) but much more reasonably priced. It is clean and well maintained. I train with Cheyenne who is absolutely fabulous! I have trained with other trainers at other gyms in the past, but Cheyenne surpasses each of them. She is motivating, knowledgeable, and thorough. The staff at Gold's is always friendly and helpful! Morgan at the front desk is super friendly and always helpful. I was always weary of going to Gold's because I was afraid I would feel out of place. Once there, though, I saw that the people who work out there range from super athletic to regular people like me, young and old alike. I don't feel out of place or overwhelmed. I love it here and that's half the battle of getting myself to the gym! See More

I've been a member for 10 years. I love nearly everything about it. It has an indoor track that's great any time, and a beautiful pool with saline instead of chlorine, and lanes you can reserve in a...dvance. They also keep it controlled at just the right temperature. They have two heavy bags for punching that are high quality, and up to date fitness equipment. I'm in Siilver Sneakers, and they have great classes for us silver citizens. My only real complaint are the (mostly) missing foot-straps on the lion's share of legacy exercise bikes. Good vibe here !

I’ve just rejoined with my daughter after being away for ten years, and the gym looks as new as it did back then. There is something for everyone, no matter where you are on your fitness journey. I tr...ied my first cycling class (Sprint) today and went in feeling pretty nervous. The instructor, Kendra, kindly introduced herself to me and gave me a quick run down of what to expect, helped me adjust my cycle and left me feeling motivated - it was an AWESOME class and I will surely return! I had a consultation with TJ and walked away feeling determined to meet my set goals. I can say without a doubt I am glad to be back!! See More

I’ve been coming to this gym for about 3 years now and it’s by far the best gym I’ve been to. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a variety of equipment to use. I also enjoy that they ar...e open 24 hours during the week because my job normally requires me to come before I go in. 5 stars for sure! � See More

I have been going to this gym for a year and a half. One thing I like about the gym is that it is not overly crowded (except on Monday nights - people feeling guilty after a weekend of eating I The staff is friendly. The monthly fee is reasonable. See More

I use the trainers, Jheydith and TJ, and they both are great at what they do. They have made a world of a difference for me in my workouts. I’m getting healthier, stronger, happier and I’m getting mor...e self confidence in myself and working out by myself sometimes. The whole entire staff is AMAZING and always smile and make you feel welcome. The facility is big, spacious, clean and equipped with the newest and most comfortable equipment. I admire how they keep active in communities and the play a part in “giving back.” The best thing to do is to come see for yourself and give it a try. It will be worth your time and money if you choose to join!! See More

Starting in high school, I began my membership with Golds Gym Woodstock. I have always loved it so when I moved back into town after some college I was eager to rejoin. Little did I know what I was ab...out to experience. After joining for a month, I met with a trainer to talk about possibly starting PT sessions as they were eager to sell them to me. I am a college student still (Full Time) who has many bills and starting nursing school in August 2018. Knowing this- I spoke with Jyedith to get an idea about PT on 12/14/2017. She was aware that there was no way for me to consistently have PT sessions due my financial situation. Therefore, she signed me up with HER money to get me started for the first session which would be before the new year. I was thankful and grateful. We went through and decided to only do one session per week for the month of January at 45$ a session. This comes out to $180 for January - which hit on 1/1/2018. I was full aware of this $180. The trainer and I were at an agreement I would try this out until the end of January and if I wanted more sessions that I would go to the front desk and just simply ask and pay when I want to add more. Eager to start my complimentary session with Teejay, Jyedith had me sign and initial. She read everything to me as we had talked about. 1 session for 45. 4 sessions for 180 on the first. I initialed and signed. Turning the papers back around- she continued to fill out her portion. I come to conclusion she may be used to writing 12 months on contracts- where this was not the agreement. I feel lied to and feel i can not trust the staff here. I trusted her with filling out the rest of the contract as exactly verbally communicated while I took my first session. Not knowing this happened at the time-I figured it out as soon as I reglanced my contracts over once I got charged for another 180 on 2/1/2018. I called the gym and got a front desk who relayed this message. It seemed to be working out, when I received a call stating that I had signed a 12 month contract for $180 per month. I assured the manager Nichole that there was no way that could have happened because Jyedith and I had discussed everything clearly and no where on that contract did it say 12 months. I pulled my copy and sure enough it said 12 months. I reached out to the GM Alex Fonte in panic mode at this point. He stated, "well as a college student. shouldn't you know how to read a contract and sign knowing what you read." At this point, I knew it was not going to be easy. I can not make my car payments now. After coming to no conclusion today I was beat and bawled my eyes out in front of Alex and Nichole. Obviously, I was not in there on my time , bawling my eyes out to "get out of a contract I knew I signed up for", but to get out of a contract that was miscommunicated and written incorrectly based on verbal agreement. He offered me a buy out plan, which got me no PT sessions. What do I have to do to relay that this was a falsely communicated contract? Why can't Alex understand that his employees make mistakes? What else do I have to do to explain that there is no possible way for me to make this payment happen? I have no extra cash and am struggling worse then ever with finances. He was able to offer to change or adjust the contract, but stated he can not cancel the contract. How is this possible? Can manipulate a contract but can't cancel it? In the end, it seems to me that money is the only thing this management cares about and can't take responsibility for their employees actions. I have asked for help generously and no option but to pay them more money is the answer. I am stuck. Have no way to turn. I've asked for help and no one can help. More than one front desk had explained to me that this has happened and if you are "nice" to Alex he will help you out and get rid of the contract like it has happened with others. I feel picked on. No idea what to do because I still can not pay this and he still doesn't believe me that those were the terms verbally communicated. What in the world do I do now? See More

The Gold’s gym Woodstock has been nothing short of an Amazing experience! The staff is always welcoming and their trainers are extremely knowledgeable. They take the time to actually talk with you and... make sure you are understanding what you are doing. The facilities are beyond clean and weights are stacked appropriately. It can get busy at times but the abundant amount of equipment keeps the flow of the gym moving nicely. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this gym! See More

Plenty of equipment and space so you never wait. And, they’ve got everything from dumbbells & barbells to every type of cardio machine available. Best gym around!

I don’t go for the weights or classes. I go for the steam room, jacuzzi, and pool. Well worth the money!

My favorite gym in the area. 1/3 of the price of the other big gym down the street and they have the same equipment. What's not to love?

It's a good gym. Just not use to have so many people but the gym has worked out great for me and my wife we plan to stay for a while.

I dig it. They let me work out in my turnout gear and flip tires out back. Clean, staff is crazy nice and they have Jacobs Ladder.

It's pretty neat.

My 1st time going into this gym. The guy Tyler Crouch, was very aware of the gym and the prices for each membership. He's the man you need to come see.
