My husband and I are both previous Golds Gym members (approx 10-15 yrs ago) -- myself in FL; my husband in TX, DC, and VA. After relocating to TX, on my initial visit w/ Golds in Corpus, its Sales Mgr advised that they were a large-volume gym and thus did not have to offer teacher, military or law enforcement discounts. He also advised that they did not have to compete because they were a high volume corporate club. He stated that the cost of membership was "$75.96 per month plus tax." He then gave me a 7-day guest pass for me and my husband. After the 7-days, during the drafting of our contract, he reiterated the cost per month and advised that I would have to pay for the "last month" of the contract plus a few days proration between my contract date and the first Friday. He clarified that Golds auto-drafted accounts every other Friday and that the membership would be split between two payments per month on a bi-weekly basis. I inquired about this and called my husband and handed the phone to him so he could explain it to him. He stated to both me and my husband that their club, along with a few other satellite clubs, had received feedback from its members, who preferred to have their payments withdrawn bi-weekly because, most people were paid bi-weekly. My husband questioned this practice and was given no alternative. My husband and I advised him that as long as the amounts were equal to the monthly rate, there was no problem, to which he concurred. When my husband arrived home, he reviewed the printout of the contracts and was dismayed. He noticed that the pre-tax rate we were actually paying was $82.29/mo and not the previously quoted rate of $75.96/mo. At first, I did not believe it and even showed my husband where they made me pay for the "last month" at $75.96 pre-tax. My husband diligently pointed-out that there was no verbiage on the contract stating "last month," and the amount was neither figured into the contract verbiage nor its period of service. The following day, my husband visited with the GM and discussed the issue with him. My husband was seemingly treated with no concern. He was told that he must have misunderstood the Sales Mgr and if he did like his contract, he could cancel it. Shocked at the aloof attitude and given no choice, my husband cancelled our memberships. Yet, after canceling and promised by the GM that no charges would occur, we were still charged over $120 dollars auto-drafted out of our account and are still awaiting the credit. My husband and I have shared this miserable experience as well as the nonchalant attitude from the notably young and inexperienced sales staff at Golds in Corpus with our neighbors and fellow members of the military/federal government community. Ironically, especially with those like us who were previous Golds members at one time or another, all shared similar stories about how they were treated with ignorance, how each was advised that Golds Corpus was a high-volume gym and therefore did not have to offer any concessions to its military/law enforcement members, and how there was consistently some kind of miscommunication between the sales staff and potential members regarding the actual cost of the membership due to the bi-weekly drafts. Thus, a majority of our friends/neighbors/associates in our community have refused to join Golds Corpus and looked elsewhere. As previous members, my husband and I were looking forward to finally re-joining Golds after a long military career that kept us apart for an extended time from our favorite gym; only to find out that due to reasons and/or human nature beyond our comprehension, we would be treated in a way that would ensure we never return again.

Filthy pool decking. Black yuck on tiles and decking, chewed bubble gum, old hair ties sit under the bench and along the wall. How clean can we assume the water is?

Great facility and fantastic staff. I enjoy using the weights and the "state of the art" machines. The classes offered are great and very popular. I can't find anything wrong about the place.

I love how they have a seperate room for women to work out. I am uncomfortable working on machines when there are lots of people around. I also love the movie room. You can walk on the tredmill and watch a movie. The pool and hot tub are awesome!
