I am an unabashed Gold's guy. Idaho Athletic Club, the Y and DEFINITELY Rocky Mountain Fitness can't hold Gold's sweaty workout rag in terms of atmosphere, equipment, and convenience.

I had become a tad complacent in my workouts for about the past two years and my waistline certainly showed. However, when I decided to get fit and to leave it in the hands of a professional, it was the best decision I could have made. Heather Eastman (blonde, nice smile and the hardest working trainer there) is so money! Seriously, if you want someone who is going to take your training seriously, and you don't mind getting your a** handed to you for an hour, go see her. Even the other trainers after hearing that I was seeing Heather were like "Ohhh, she's tough!". If I am spending good money getting trained, I want it to be worth it. She is worth it -- in spades.

I think it would be good if Gold's stayed open on Thanksgiving Day...I mean, where does one go after dinner to work out? You would have to have your own gym at home I suppose, but what if you don't? I think at least one gym in the Boise/Meridian area should stay open or they could rotate the times they stay open. I know someone there can figure this out.

Also, the employees at front desk are barely adequate..meaning they are the lowest common denominator type of people...barely helpful and rarely polite in the service kind of way. They barely answer phones, barely give information, hardly are useful in terms of a front desk person. I see more engaged front desk peoiple at the local Y. However, they do like to spend alot of time talking to one another and perhaps wish they were trainers or perhaps they are hoping to get training to be trainers. I think Gold's gym could benefit by having training for the front desk people as service people who help customers.

Well, really, trainer Drew Miller has. Everyone there is helpful and cheerful and the new location is lovely. I can hardly wait for the pool to open!
I would and do recommend this gym to anyone.
And I'm a 60-year-old female, very overweight and very out-of-shape. I've never felt out of place or had anyone act condescending to me. The club is very clean.
Again, I can't say enough about Drew. Getting a trainer, even though expensive, was the smartest thing I did.

my husband joined this gym and after the first year wanted to quit so we sent in a cancellation letter. Then our daughter had a brain hemorrhage and we lost track of time, but saw 2 months later they were still charging us.
I called in and talked to a guy. He said he would take care of it. Months later, we are still getting charged. I call in again and a lady tells me that he no longer works there and since I have no proof, there is nothing they WILL do about it.
Finally got the darned account cancelled, but they took me for $80.

In Short
The Terminator and the Incredible Hulk (aka Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno) lifted weights at the gym's Venice, California, flagship years ago, but even today, customers frequenting charter locations are bound to…
