    "Gold's Gym commits fraud."
    "An employee at Gold's Gym FORGED my signature"
    "On June 20, 2013, I filed a police report. A detective informed that this is not the first report that they've had against Gold's Gym. According to the Better Business Bureau, there have been 396 complaints against this company within the last 12 months (F rating)."
    "Bottom line: unethical business practices"

    Upon enrollment I was informed that you can perform snatch exercises and drop the weight. Like in Olympic style lifting. In addition to that I would be able to train at most Golds gym considering the amount of travel I do.

    After traveling to Miami I get back to find out that it is against the "rules and regulations" of the gym I signed up in to drop weights. When I try and cancel their reasoning is: "You signed up under a multigym contract and since other gyms offer the equipment to drop weights you cannot cancel your membership because of this."

    I have attempted several times to resolve the situation diplomatically however after a brief discussion with some associates of mine they are committing fraud by promising one thing and then delivering another and then using unethical business practices to force you into paying it.

    They are NOT consistent with their prices. It appears they do an immediate assessment according to how you look and your ability to pay more or not. Everyone I talked with has said they paid something entirely different. I had a 1/2 off coupon yet was charged over $400 for a membership (yet younger people I know were charged under $50 for the same thing!) AND $26 monthly charge.
    I went there looking to swim and it wasn't until after I signed up (which they hurried me into signing) that I was told they had no pool but there was one close by. Then after emailing corporate headquarters (because no one at the gym KNEW where the pool was) and never getting a response, by the way, I then called other gyms, and found out the pool is in Round Rock.

    Pros: parking is easy

    Cons: no honesty in signing up

    They have treadmills and elliptical machines with built in tvs, which are awesome. However, some are always broken. Also, their sauna smells like someone died in it. It's pretty gross. Might want to check the newer gyms being built around there to see how clean they are.

    Pros: # of machines, classes offered

    Cons: Stench in sauna, broken tv's on some machines

    If you want to hop on a machine and get your workout on, this is a great place to do so. Beware of rush hour after work, however, when your favorite machine may be scarce. They also have many Nautilus machines and a free weights area. Several classes, including Pilates are offered. The dressing rooms are neat and clean. The sales staff will put the pressure on, and once you sign that contract, the company will make you jump through hoops to get out of it. It's a good deal if you will be one of the individuals who actually go after they sign up.
