^yeah i used to workout there. there's a ton of equipment there, but some of it is pretty sketchy, i recall doing my flat bench on one of the benches, and once i kicked my 100 lb weights up, i almost flipped over cus the bench was so unstable LOL. Its not bad though, a ton of open space since there aren't alot of people going there...

Ehh I've been there for a few years. I use to praise it just as much...

But honestly, all the equipment they have, I've never used.

When it comes down to a gym I just expect solid dumbbells, enough plates, squat rack, bench and good people.

For the amount you pay at Golds I don't think its worth it.

You can get the same results at any gym. Save some coin.

Gold's isn't that expensive though, I pay $44 a month, that's $9 more than ghetto Revs. That's one meal @ McDicks a month lol.

$41/month after tax @Richmond Oval

Pros:
- Ice for those who play hockey/skate
- Big facility = don't feel crowded
- Lots of staff
- More machines then I'll ever need
- Lots of girls
- Tons more that I'm missing...

Cons:
- Parking and drop in fees are expensive if you wanna drag a friend out

exactly. Some guys at steve nash and goodlife pay $60/month, which, in comparison to $44 is much much better. I actually know a guy at golds that pays monthly, and isn't tied to a yearly contract, so really reconsider

I was at Golds from 2008-2011, paid $21+tax every 2 weeks.. worked out to $50.96/mth

FW gave me my old rate of $22+tax/mth so I thought I would switch and save some coin.

I called Golds to see if they would hook me up if i switched back, but they actually raised the rate to 24+tax biweekly. $58.24/mth

Looks like i'm staying with FW

Naw man they have new rates. I went back a month or so ago.

If I froze my account which I was paying around $36/month then I would have came back but I didn't think at the time to freeze my account.

I only left due to the traffic at that gym at the time I had to go.

I'm happy at my gym. Nothing wrong with Golds, I'm just saying it isn't THE best gym in the lower mainland.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

I'm cheap. Coquitlam Aquatic Centre toonie hour. From 9:30pm til 10:30pm, drop a toonie in a bucket and you can use the gym or go for a swim. Pretty new machines and weights. Its only an hour but if you focus, you can squeeze in a good workout.

^ok yeah, but club16 is a shit gym... (overcrowded cus the gym's pretty small for the amount of ppl that workout there) i literally walked in there, and walked back out after running my eyes across the gym. If you're talking about the one at highgate... which i'm pretty sure is the only one in burnaby... But I guess for the price you pay there, you can't really go wrong... Just gotta find the optimal times when its not busy

Well yes its overcrowded sometimes , but you can't beat the price ... I go there in the morning or 1-1,5 before closing ...the only thing I don't like that it closes at 5 pm on saturday and Sunday

Lol your talking to a guy who's actually been at Golds for over two years. As mentioned Club 16 is par with Golds in my opinion. Newer equipment as well. But as you also mentioned it does get packed but same with Golds.

Like I said I'm not downing the gym, just saying you won't be using every single machine in that gym for the amount you pay. And two squat racks? Come on lol. Oval has 6.

Simple gym is good enough for me.

sportscentral

25/month

pros:
-24/7 - i work 16 hour days 6 days a week so I end up in the gym at like 2 am in the morning lol
-large facility

cons:
-might just be me, but a large percentage of equipment has some sort of defect
-for sugh a large facilty, i thought ventilation wouldn't be an issue..i was wrong
-i heard there are large crowds during the day ( I never go so I wouldn't know)

all in all, unless you need a 24/7 gym, it'd be safer to look elsewhere lol
