Gold's Gym International, Inc Compliment - Gold's is great - Gym and Personal Trainer
NORFOLK, VIRGINIA -- I just started at Gold's Gym in Norfolk, VA, the Ghent location. I was given the year long membership as a gift for Christmas, because I have been complaining about getting in shape for my October wedding. I have tried the YMCA and Curves but quit after a couple of months.
I went to Gold's after work on day just to get a tour and not to work out. I was nervous I would be ridiculed for coming but not working out, but Marcus was awesome. He showed me every floor, gave me time to look in the women's locker room while he waited outside and got me signed up for the free training sessions and the body age test. I have been to my first of three free training sessions with Travis. He is awesome. He was very encouraging and knowledgeable. He's working on his PhD. We warmed up in the elliptical while he asked me questions, then we moved on to the FastFit weight machines and he showed me how to use them. We then went to the mats and worked on lunges, squats and abs. I have back problems and he was very accepting of that and encouraging. I feel very comfortable with him.
I have read other reviews that said the trainers are salesmen and pushy, but he didn't mention anything past my next session. I was totally impressed by this.
I have nothing but excellent things to say about Gold's Gym in Norfolk VA.
