Start strong, finish stronger.
Just short of two months ago, a major electrical nightmare knocked out our power and, as we later found out, damaged almost all of our electrical components inside the facility.
We went from being one of the busiest Gold’s Gyms in the world to the quietest in less than 5 minutes. So, we did what we always do… we went to work!
Within hours, the entire facility was outfitted with temporary lighting and filled with contractors cleaning up the water that flooded our cardio decks. We removed drywall from over half of our facility to ensure that water had nowhere to hide. Then, we moved almost everything with an electric cord to the basketball court.
We then split into teams and delegated responsibilities. We not only had to test everything we had, but started placing orders to replace anything that wasn’t working properly as well. Meanwhile, we were working, literally, around the clock to replace floors, replace drywall and paint the walls, floor to ceiling.
I will never forget the day that several giant trucks pulled up to take all the treadmills and stair climbers. Moving a treadmill isn’t fun; moving 50 is just crazy. Our gym became a complete ghost town.
But the very next day, we got all brand new cardio equipment, and the hard work was starting to show serious results! at the same time, our electrical contractors were working as quickly as they could to get our electrical wiring replaced and updated. We also had contractors adding turfed areas, replacing the carpet and installing new, state of the art, computer and check-in systems. Yes, you can use your phone to check in now!
Audio/Video was completely overhauled. The new sound is crystal clear and the TV’s are all brand new and HD. The Cardio Cinema screen was updated to 4k and is larger than ever. For our children, the Kids Club got brand new computers, gaming consoles, toys and more.
Retail items showed up for our brand new pro shop and we created a brand new circuit training area for everyone as well! We also transformed our smoothie bar with a whole new look and feel!
Seriously, this gym is beautiful, and it was created just for you!
We kept most of the original elements that our members loved, but upgraded them, while adding some new features you have been requesting.
Your support has been amazing through this, and I cannot thank you enough. If you see some of our staff, please know that they busted their butts helping us along, and they did a great job!
I cannot wait for you to see the club! We are so proud of our members and hope you can be proud of us too. Please, come see us soon!
