I wish I could rate this negative stars. After purchasing several private sessions, I was treated like a beggar because I didn't want to sign a membership for a year (even though I spent a small fortune for a personal trainer). Fortunately

In addition to being the crappiest gym on the beach (dirty, disappointing classes, always closed for flooding) , it also had the worst customer service. When they even bothered to leave their solitaire game on their computer and actually talk to you, they were extremely condescending. Managers refused to give me their name and they wouldn't reveal who their managers were. Even when the place isn't closed after flooding it's still the crappiest gym on the beach

I just called to ask about membership options and the man on the phone was unbelievable rude! He refused to tell me how much a yearly membership costs. Apparently in order to get any information you have to go in for an hour. This jerk then proceeded to tell me that the gym was free and all i had to do was come in for a meeting. He continued by insulting me which led to me hanging up the phone on him. Why would I want to go in for an hour meeting with someone who insults me?
I'd rather stay fat ;)

I was a member of Energy and it closed down with no notice, so when I found out Golds took over the memberships, I tried it out and have been ever since. Before this I was at Crunch and Crunch went bankrupt and closed down 2 or 3 clubs. My boyfriend was a member of Idol and they went out of business overnight. Gold's environment is just more comfortable than the want to be spas that have tried to populate hotels and condos. South Beach Golds is where I workout and love it. I recommend Gold's, their equipment expertise is better and they have designed areas for women and really custom machines that I never had at other clubs.

I had a really positive experience here both during the initial meeting period and when I was intruduced to a few trainers here. I love their group fitness classes and their body vibration plate studio is amazing. No other gym on the Beach or anywhere have I seen this. I recommend this club to the more discriminating people who want more than the standard fair of the normal health clubs where everything is the same.

The people who run this place have top flight training machines, classes and an array of classes that will make you drop unwanted pounds. This is a great place to make things happen. Thanks to Chrissy, I was referred to the Gold's on South Beach,

The club I joined in South Beach makes me so happy that I wanted to share this experience. This is one of the best energy gyms I've ever been to and the best one I've been a member of. After I get off work, I look forward to coming to Gold's. Even the people who work at the Blended Juice Bar are cool. I love this place!!! thanks, Gold's South Beach

The new equipment in their studios and on the floor is very cool. They are open 24 hours when no one else is and this Golds Gym has some very specialized studios with great instructors not found anywhere else. Try their abs classes and enroll for a whole body vibration class and you will open up new ways to keep your fitness interesting. Thanks to Golds I have lost 6lbs since Christmas and am on my way to accomplishing my first goal.

Working out is one of my favorite things to do now that I belong to a gym that I can use, not have to dribble through the lobby of some hotel or condo, and I don't have to worry about them going under like I did when a member of Crunch. Gold's in South Beach rocks! Carl M.

Gold's Gym is know throughout the world so I thought lets try this out and really see how this plac compares to the few other name gyms in South Florida. My husband and I each have different exercise routines and I was getting bored with my gym. After spending 2 weeks at each club in Miami Beach and Downtown, wow is all I can say. The South Beach branch of Gold's is not a typical gym with machines and space. The studios are well laid out and have functional training equipment that we have never seen before. As a woman, I can use machines that calculate how many calories I have burned and even email me a report. Their spin class is great and they have things that no one else has, including vibration studio, weightless resist machines and the staff are friendly and service oriented. My husband does the weights and no one does this better than Gold's. Its a rare day that I give 4 or 5 stars but this club is for those who want the best. Marna F

This place has to be run by a complete moron.I have never seen a more filthy broken down gym in my life.I joined because it was close to my home and convenient.I realized one year into my membership that the owner and his minions were scam artist and crooks.My credit card was charged multiple times without my authorization and come to find out the facility has outdated equipment and they had a sex offender as an employee.I quickly realized i had to cancel as my family would not be safe working out here.My advice if you dont believe me ask a local and if your still not sure contact the better buisness bureau.Theres no hiding behind the facts! A spade is a spade and if you care about your well being skip the idea of joining this wretched dump! Also be careful with the owner he seems to have Napoleon syndrome he kept hitting on my wife telling her his friend owns a nightclub called suite and that he wanted to take her out.

Gold's Gym South Beach has helped me lose 15lbs over the last 7 months and really shown me how to live a more balanced healthy lifestyle. They have a nutrition person in the company and a whole training department of locally established talent. Their trainers are skilled and the environment is perfect for working out. The convenience is second to none in Miami Beach and the locstion is much better situated than the other health clubs in Miami Beach. I recommend this gym to those who want the best and know the difference.

Modern, up to date, cutting edge machines and classes that will keep you coming back, I've been a member for 3 years and love working out there. Theres a whole body vibration studio right at this club, completely mind blowing compared to the daily grind you find elsewhere. This is a cutting edge branch of Gold's worthy of checking out! JS

This place is a slum it is not even second class.I had a membership and let me tell you i wouldnt recomend this place to my worse enemy.They try to stick it to you in every direction when you try to sign up and when you try to cancel.Its almost like trying to quit smoking.They make it virtually impossible and when you do leave you will feel violated.I decided to cancel my membership after one morning walking into the showers and two grown men were engageing in acts i wish to not go into detail.I ran out and approached the owner and he told me hey its south beach what do you want me to do? I have never been so disturbed in my life!!!

The good reviews are written by the owner named Andrew Phillip Chesler.This guy may come off educated but he is a class a con.He aquired this gym by a scam he did on these russians that owned it.He is very rude and runs this operation which will run your credit card whenever his personal finances crash.Thats right MR. Drew as he calls himself will use your credit card for no reason and then tell you that you owe a past due maintenance fee of some sort for his buisness.If your thinking of joining just ask around and you will get plenty of complaints.I once was working out and FPL stormed the gym almost like a drug raid but it wasnt drugs they were after it was there unpaid light bill.Within minutes the power was off and someone came on a loud speaker and said that due to contruction the gym is closed.I later found out that MR.Drew has an appetite for not paying bills and this gets passed on to the gym member.Trust me after working out for years in this facilty the best thing i did was cancel my membership!

I am a victim of the Energy/Gold's Scam, and I am outraged at the way I have been treated. My personal character has been insulted by a manager who never met me, only because I complained that I had no desire to join their club and that their claims to having a contract with me were BS.
What's worse, their billing company, ASF is threatening my spotless credit. They're banking on the fact that most of us can't afford lawyers, but can't we all get together and find someone to represent us pro-bono? I know one member who got her contract cancelled through Help Me Howard.
there must be some way to expose these sharks and save our credit ratings!

Pros: Can't think of any.

Yes I was a member at Energy Gym and the day they closed there were four health clubs in front of the gym offering memberships. Golds Gym was one of them.
But no mention of our membership being automatically transferred. So we checked out a couple of gyms and made a commitment. Then two months latter we start getting bills form Gold's Gym collection agency. Try as we can they will not stop. I never received any noticfication at all just ridiculous outrageous bills with late fees and manual billing fees just any kind of BS they can imagine to mess up my credit.

I am just outraged by Gold's gym desperate need to get new members. Upon the sudden closing of Energy Fitness Club back in February, Gold Gym is now sending out bills to Energy's ex members based on the fact that they were "sold" Energy's members contracts. Basically, we are now FORCED to pay Gold Gym's. They are claiming to have sent letters to all members (which by the way, I have not been able to validate) informing that we had one month to respond, or else we would become automatically members. Aside from the fact that the Gold staff is just rude, they are unable to provide neither copy of the letter sent out, nor copy of the contract which would stipulate that Energy would be entitled to pass on these contacts to a third party (Gold Gym in this instance). Their response: either you pay, or your credit will be affected. Are you KIDDING??????? This is information I just can not wait to share with the Miami Herald and other media.

Most people write reviews seem to critique the missing pieces but today I decided to share something very positive to shed some light on the local scene in South Beach. This Gold's Gym is the kind of ambiance and experience worth investing your time in. I have and I could no be happier with my results and this is what keeps me grounded. I have been all over South Beach and while no where is perfect, this place is genuinely cool, clean and refreshing. These are not amateurs and you get to know this very quickly when you compare and contrast the gym experience all over Miami Beach to this. Gold's Gym is all over the world and I get to use my membership in L.A. and in Lima Peru or even London England when I'm traveling on business. This Gold's has the goods and is my home away from home....Spence

It amazes me when I see some of the reviews in town, one has to wonder where people are from. I am so pleased with this gym that I had to write a review. The thing about GOLD'S GYM in South Beach is the staff and the management are long term locals and not tourists passing through town, so they seem to care about changing peoples lives I am a living testimony. I lost 12 lbs and a few dress sizes but not after their system flagged me and advised me that I was only working out 6 times per month. They put me on a jumpstart program of 4 days per week and really explained things to me about when to do cardio, how to eat and how frequently and this all made a huge difference. This is undoubtedly the place to train. I don't have to valet park or drive into those silly concrete structures, I park in their parking lot and also when I'm in England or Houston where I visit friends and family I can work out free at Gold's Gym. I coudnt even think about doing that at these spa clubs inside hotels and no one cared over there. Hats off to the Gold's team! Carmen

I want to share an experience I have had now for just over 1 year as of this writing. I was always looking for a place that I could just work out in peace and make gains. The problem is that wasn't really happening, I mean I work out 4-5 days a week and run too but my body wasnt really changing. Thats when a friend of mine invited me to Gold's Gym when I was working out at another club and running on the beach. I was surprised to find what is a really good space in a city with very few. The club apparently was built to be a gym from the floor up and theres no beems in the way. The equipment variety blew the other club away and they included worldwide access to golds all over. What really separated them is the people there asked me if I was pleased with my results from before I joined. I said No and was kind of complaining about my genetics. They did not laugh at me, instead advised that 99% of people are like me and have to work for everything they have, but work smart. I was assigned a trainer and now have broken through the old barriers - thanks to the staff at Gold's Gym in South Beach and in Orlando where my companys headquarters is. I can go back and forth and dont have to join another gym. Thanks to the team at Golds!!! .Carl

My friend introduced me to Gold's Gym at a breast cancer walktathon that they were the sponsors of.
When I joined Gold's Gym back in Spring, I went to Crunch and tried to work out there and was not too impressed and tried out Equinox and they did not have enough equipment I needed a trainer and was amazed at the attitude in some of the gyms but Gold's was easy to deal with and they offered me a program that works. I like their work out theater they added recently too but wish they didnt always have sports channel on. This is a really amazing gym. When you work out at this club, you are next to other people who seem to understand what it takes to keep in good form and thats not something I have seen at the other places. I've met some very good people here and the Management that I have met seem to have some spine and will kick people out of the gym if they are abusive or lack manners. This is part of what I like about the gym and its funny that this is what some people complain about. I recommend Golds to all my friends! Carol

Gold's Gym on South Beach is a rip-off and the operations are horrible. The staff changes monthly if not weekly. The owner walks around like king of the hill only listening to his employees when you complain instead of clients. He should be concerned about his gym and people he hires to work front desk. Front Desk is very difficult to deal with because they are toooo busy socializing and will miss up your credit card - I know first hand. They over charged my credit card with manual fees and blamed me for it. There is a reason why the gym is still empty after 5 years in service. Nice facilities are not enough, you cannot rip people off anywhere, especially in a small community like South Beach. There are better gyms in South Beach with highly trained staff, no gimmicky fees and service charges. Their general manager is worst than the owner......... Customer retention is not a priority.....stealing and lying is.

Pros: Nice Facilities

Cons: Gimmicky Contracts and really bad service from staff especially when it comes to membership/credit card issues

As a woman in South Beach, its not easy to get a good workout and its also impossible to find places that care enough to help you. At Gold's Gym South Beach, the one on Alton Road and 14th, they've got a really good program for losing weight and getting toned up. Its the only gym in South Beach that truly has the goods and delivers what is offerred. Also, when I travel, I go to Gold's Gym in Dallas and in Orlando and I went to one in Dominican Republic. The staff are super friendly. When I came in first in early 2008, I was 25 lbs overweight and between training and working out, I am down three dress sizes and at my target weight. Everywhere else I have gone no one helped me like here. Thank you to the staff and to the trainers and group exercise instructors at Gold's Gym!

Pros: Staff cares, easy to access and clean faciltiy with all the equipment too

Cons: they will ask you what your goals are and try to keep you on track, can be annoying

It's not the largest gym....doesn't always have towels....and has dated equipment...But, the worst part is the customer service. I had signed a contract for 1 year with an auto-renewal. At the year mark I had called to change my service to month to month. They had verbally confirmed that I was then on month to month. Then it came as a surprise when I tried to cancel my membership that I was responsible for the full year! When I had called to address the issue. The accounting rep actually blamed me! Me! for not getting it in writing. Really deplorable customer service experience. Get everything from them in writing...even if they don't mention that it is needed at the time. Never assume that they have your best interests at heart....Take everthing they have to say with a grain of salt. They are ruthless. They'll take your first born if given the opportunity.

Cons: contract agreement, customer service.

I had been a customer for nearly two years. Their contract stated that you have to give notice 30 days in advance of the end of the contract for no auto-renewal. I had called the gym to confirm that I wanted to go month to month and not have an auto renewal at the specified time. They ensured me that I was switched to month to month. 8 months later, I had asked to cancel, and they told me that I was responsible for payments until the end of the year! Then they proceeded to blame me for my ignorance of their contract! It was rude, appauling customer service....and they definitely weren't looking out for their customers' best interests! Moral of the story...be prepared for paying for the memberships in 2 year chunks. Their contracts stinks, and their customer service is worse!

The Gold's Gym in South Beach is pretty much where I have gone to improve my conditioning, lose weight, gain some cuts, meet people and overall enjoy the experience of living in South Beach. This is at the foundation of what keeps me competitive and ontop of my game. Thanks to the staff and overall energy level at this club! Keep it up....

This Gold's Gym made me want to write a letter to my old Gold's Gym up in the Boston area. Wow, it has state of the art machines and top classes and they keep it clean. There's an internet cafe with complementary web access and its a great place for me to bring my guests from out of town. I highly recommend this place! Good Job!

People know what to expect from Gold's Gym and this one delivers. There is plenty of lifting equipment and it's all well maintained. The staff is polite and attentive. Membership is a little pushy but very polite. The tow floor design of this gym sort of turns some people off, if you like to superset often you might need to be running alot of stairs. Classes here are great and cutting edge. The gym is great overall but the price is a little above that of other gyms on the beach and they commit you for a full year.

Joining this gym was simple after taking a tour of the areas gyms, this one stood out as it was clean throughout and had the nicest and newest equipment in Miami Beach. Front Desk people were friendly and the personal trainers seem knowledgeable and helpful. I have taken nearly half of the classes and the instructors are the top ones on the beach and when I work out, they really seem to care about my results. I've been a member of two other gyms in this City and never did multiple people ask me what my goal is and how I'm going to achieve that. Gold's South Beach is worth going to.

Pros: Clean and high ceilings good space, the newest equipment

Cons: They do not allow you to work out with Flip Flops

.

This is the ultimate work out experience and its in a great location in South Beach. With private LCD Screens on all the newest cardio machines of all the South Florida Gyms, this place is friendly and very South Beach at the same time! Staff are friendly and towel service is provided as soon as you enter. The club has boutique group fitness classes that are excellent and the ladies room is super clean. I have invited people from other gyms to visit and all of them have either joined or want to join. Also, they have better parking than the other places in town and not too congested with tourists.

Gold's Gym South Beach is the only club in Miami Beach with both friendly and knowledgeable staff, the very best equipment made and the gym has super high ceilings. In addition, they almost always play super upbeat house and tribal music which takes you higher with each visit. On my last visit to this gym, I saw Tiger Woods working out and J-Lo inside the club!

PROS: Best Equipment in town
CONS: very good looking people and lots of models

Where else do you get so many top brands of equipment, models everwhere, valet service and see Tiger Woods, Anna Kournakova and J-Lo working out at the same time? This gym is the most exciting work out area in Florida - bar none!

Say no to Gold's gym!
Equipments, machines and classes are great, modern and helpful for today's needs, but, staff are very uptight, they look you up and down before helping you out.
