You have the European licence for Gold’s Gym products. Can you tell me about the brand?

Gold’s Gym is a legacy. Since earning itself a cult following way back in 1965 as a tiny studio in Venice, California – created by former bodybuilder and US Marine, Joe Gold as a place for him and his friends to train – it’s a name that nearly everyone knows, world-over.

Gold’s Gym has transformed over the years from this legacy brand that people associate with images of Arnold Schwarzenegger pumping iron in the ’70s, into a modern fitness empire. And also, how it’s taken advantage of technology to completely turn itself around; becoming accessible to all and giving everyone, no matter their fitness level, a tailored service and thus the opportunity to achieve their goals. Today, the gym franchise boasts 700 locations in 37 US states and 20 other countries with over three million members worldwide.
