***BE CAREFUL!! They do over bill and do it excessively. The $30 maintenance fee was steep as it was done right before the holidays and we had our entire family of 5 as members so they deducted $150 plus monthly fees which was extreme. Then they kept charging us for towel service an additional $10 / per member. I repeatedly signed documentation canceling the towel service only to see it charged again the next month.It took 6 months to have them stop the towel service and no they would not refund the $.I called them right away after the maintenance fee charges and of course you get no answers on phone, you are told... "You have to come in and talk to...." so you take time out of your day and guess what. The person you need to talk to is never there. They did refund the amount after extensive and persistent demands in person but then made you sign a letter stating that you will allow them to deduct those fees in the future to remain a member....."????" Ended up canceling all memberships. Was pretty upset after being a member there for more than 12 years that they give no explanation to their theft.

This is a great gym for famlies. It is much more than a muscle gym. If you have not checked this one out quit wasting time. This gym is a perfect fit for the Huntington Beach family.

When i first went to Gold's in Huntington Beach they greeted me with open arms and were very helpful. I felt that this was the gym that i could come to every morning for a rigorous work out. The other patrons were friendly and the atmosphere was encouraging with a lot of sweet people, wow this was the gym for me and just up the street from where I live, Perfect...but then things changed when i decided that i did not wish to buy into a personal trainer which I really did not need as I already know the rigger's of working out. The open arms that once greeted me now turned their backs on me which made me so uncomfortable i had to find another gym although further away same daily rate and no pressure to sign a personal trainer I'm treated with the same respect as all other patrons.

I just tried to find out why my daughter was dropped from my Family policy and did not get a good answer. I was unable to put her back on my family policy without a 1 year contract. I tried to get some help but no one in management cared. I don't see how someone would say they were treated like family when most of the staff is new. Golds is going down and treated me poorly. Whatever changes are being made are not for the better. Be careful.

Pros: Beautiful Upgrades and Improvements

Cons: New Management and Employees

I have been a member here for many years. From the moment I walk throught the door I get treated like family. Everyone there ( workers as well as other members ) really care about me, my kids, and if I have any questions or need assistance .... someone is there to help. It is also the ONLY gym around that offers Les MIlls programs.( Bodypump, Bodycombat, RPM etc) I was really nervous about trying a class because I didn't want to look silly. The instructor totally made me feel comfortable and kept encouraging me. Now I take all the classes. Gold's gym ROCKS !!!

The gym is getting very dirty and unclean....they have not paid their janitors now for 10 weeks. The Manager says it's an issue with corporate....and he will fix the problem. I have heard that the business is up for sale....$2 million. I hope that it doesn't close..... because my dues have been paid for a year in advance......stupid me.
I see that less members are in there every day. Maybe it's the economy....but I don't think so. How many gyms out there have closed up in the middle to the night.

They offer a wide range of workout equipment and they have a good selection of classes too. Childcare is available and they are part of a large network also for travelers. Clean and friendly.

To you guys at Golds Gym in Huntington Beach,

Thank you so much for your Awesome Hospitality about a week ago.

From the sweet voice that answered my call and gave me directions from the Gawd awful place my friend took me to (24 Fitness), to the warm smiles of everyone at the front desk (You guys need a tip jar! ) who knew who I was when I walked in and welcomed me with warm hello's.

Even though my visit to Huntington Beach was brief, when I return I know exactly where I'll take my happy lil' bottom!

I will be back to CA in the latter part of July to shoot the cover of Ironman Magazine with Mike O' Hearn. By the way he laughed when I told him the best part of my visit so far was working out at the newly remodeled Golds Gym in Huntington Beach and of course... meeting him.

Thank you Again guys and God Bless!

Pros: Everything was wonderful!

Cons: I had to leave! I could have worked out all day long! lol!

They are notorious for double billing accounts and overcharging with bait-and-switch tactics. Other former members have come forward with this information as well. It is poorly kept, unclean and is badly run all around. Mismanaged and shady business practices. Avoid!

These guys are a joke. They will continue overcharging your account, double charges in same month. They are far from professional! They had charges on my CC for stuff I never bought. What a bunch of scammers!

This gym is kept clean and in good working order. It is on the smaller side and is lacking much of the regular weight training equipment such as a hack-squat, standing calf, T-bar row, adequate weights, etc. Not very busy so you usually aren't waiting for equipment. Staff is only ok, not the friendliest. The owner is unapproachable with a bit of arrogance. Customer service is not a high priority to management. Also there was a non-negotiable $30 fee charged to every member for "maintenance expenses". This charge was not part of the membershipp agreement, but rather a random charge for no apparent reason. The good news is I understand the owner has run into some legal trouble and no longer manages the place. Hopefully improvements will come!

Pros: Clean, no waiting, regular core of people, more like a home than a club.

Cons: Lacking equipment, staff not friendly, customer service is non-existant
