Golds Gym SoCal on Oct. 7 announced plans to expand its network over the next four years, beginning with three new gyms set to open by early 2022 and renovating eight more by the close of next year.
“Despite the challenges brought on by 2020 due to the pandemic, Gold’s Gym SoCal persevered in order to keep fulfilling the needs of the fitness communities,” Angel Banos, chief executive of Gold’s Gym SoCal, said in a statement. “Now we’re making up for time lost because of the pandemic by accelerating our expansion and introducing new, top-tier fitness experiences,” Angel Banos said.
A 38,000-square-foot facility in the Northridge Fashion Center is slated for opening this winter. Soon after Northridge opens, facilities in Cerritos and Rancho Cucamonga will open as soon as early 2022.
“The fitness industry has evolved significantly since we opened our first Gold’s Gym in North Hollywood back in 1987,” Angel Banos said in a statement. “Our growth since then has been driven by our willingness to embrace our members’ wants and needs as they have changed over time.”
Also, Gold’s Gym SoCal plans significant updates in the coming months to gyms in Santa Barbara, Goleta, downtown Los Angeles, Thousand Oaks, Fullerton, Arcadia, Long Beach and Culver City. Upgrades will vary by location, according to a company statement, with major projects including add-on expansions to both indoor and outdoor exercise spaces, installations of high-tech equipment, the addition of indoor functional turf training areas and full interior remodels.
