My husband and I joined Gold's after working out at the mess that is LVAC for about a year and a half. Even though we hated it, and left in a bad mood everytime we went, we kept sucking it up because we were locked into our contract for two years. Finally we just couldn't take it anymore and headed over to the new Gold's on Stephanie. WE LOVE THIS PLACE! We never fight for a parking spot. The area of town is a little nicer so you don't deal with some of the shadiness you do over on Eastern and Pebble. The gym is always immaculate, and the machines are always in great shape. I have yet to run into one that isn't working properly. The cardio theatre is a nice break from the norm. The trainers are serious. Fewer gross people to deal with. Anytime you are in a gym, especially in Vegas you always run into the less than desirables...but this place has alot less of them than your local LVAC. It's never crazy busy to the point that you have to wait and descend like a vulture to steal weights or machines back from loitering socialites whom are there to improve their free meal ratios at the expense of some punk of a meat head. The trainers aren't lingering either, they seem to look the part and do their thing and go. The sign of a busy professional! Also a refreshing change of pace from LVAC. We are not locked into a two year agreement, which we love, this tells us this gym isn't concerned that we are going to become disgruntled and leave, and that they will always provide a quality environment that we want to keep going to. Should that not be the case and we want out, we just notify them in writing at the gym that we are suspending our membership, no corporate hoops to jump through! Oh yeah...and for what we pay for one of us at LVAC, we pay for both of us with all the bells and whistles with a little spending cash left over at Gold's. Great value, great gym! Love it!
Pros: Nice equipment, never have to fight for parking, clean, mostly free of undesirable personalities, not insanely busy, brand new facility
Cons: none that we have run into yet!
