It's amazing that Gold's allows the owners of this gym to even use their corporate name. - The building doesn't have adequate heat or air conditioning, so it's always hot in the summer and cold in the winter. You can see the residential window AC units they've punched through the walls from the outside. And on the inside there are always huge fans running that unsuccessfully attempt to push hot and cold air around. - The weights are a collection of mismatched plates and bars from at least 6 different manufacturers. - When things break, be it water fountains, weight machines, locker doors, etc... the owners take "months" to fix them if at all. - The men's locker room has zero ventilation and always smells of mildew, sweat, and stale urine. God help you if someone uses the single toilet to go #2 while you're in there trying to change. - There have a handful of unsafe circa 1970's machines that probably came from the same surplus warehouse as the weights mentioned above. - The bottom line is that this is a very poorly maintained and unclean gym that isn't worth the membership. If you want to see what a "real" Golds gym is "supposed" to look like, check out the one in Crofton MD just west of Annapolis.
