Like many people around the West Georgia area, you’ve probably driven by a Gold’s Gym or two and thought, “I wonder what that place is like? I should stop in one day and see what it’s all about in there. Maybe I will like it!” But then, you notice the big strong Gold’s Gym “muscle man” that is the face of the Gold’s Gym Business and your previous interest quickly turns to you saying, “Actually, I bet it’s probably full of muscle head guys throwing weights, trainers screaming at people, and machines I will never understand. What was I thinking?! I don’t belong in a place like that!

I don’t blame you! Who would want to be part of a place like that? Thankfully, you’re in luck! The Gold’s Gyms of West Georgia are as far away from that stereotype as possible. Read below to get a REAL idea as to what the place you drive by each day is “really all about” and why you are bound to find one that is the PERFECT fit for you!

There are 3 of them!

Think again! We offer Silver Sneakers Group Fitness classes that are ideal for the senior group. And let me tell you, those men and women are always having so much fun together!

The Gold’s Gyms of West Georgia are family owned and operated!

Why does that matter? Well, I’ll give you a quick history lesson to explain: In December of 1984, our owner Gordon Johnson along with his wife Shirley, built their first gym in Douglasville on Hospital Drive and called it the “Douglasville Health and Athletic Club”. In 1998, Gordon made the decision to become part of the Gold’s Gym Franchise and so the Douglasville Health and Athletic Club on Hospital Drive became known from that point on as Gold’s Gym. Shortly after that, Gordon decided he would open another gym in Douglasville and a third in West Cobb!

A few short years later, Gordon’s children decided they wanted to be part of the business with their mom and dad. So, that’s what they did!  His oldest son Skip is now the V.P. of Operations over the 3 gyms, his youngest son Scott is VP of Finance and Facilities, while his daughter Kathy is over the HR departments.

Gordon Johnson has spent the past 37 years dedicating his life’s work to developing a completely different gym experience than what most are familiar with. When asked what sparked his interest in the health club business, he responds with, “I found that I liked the people who were attracted to a better life and the employees who were attracted to the business. There was a sense of purpose in making people’s lives better and enjoying the people who had that interest as well.”

The Johnson family has worked tirelessly to develop a gym environment that makes you feel as if you are just as much a part of the family business as they are. For years they have been positively improving their reputation thanks to their gym family’s suggestions and feedback. After all, what’s a family if not a group of people that listen and learn from one another?
