16 Jul Attention Health Buffs! Gold’s Gym Is Opening Soon in Cagayan de Oro
The most diehard health and fitness advocates will always say that if you want a really sculpted body, really want to lose weight, or want to really flatten that bulging stomach, you need to work really workout hard to the point of “no pain, no gain.” Perhaps so, but if you’re a truly fitness fanatic then maybe the stuff of dreams that you’ve been fantasizing about is soon to hit the city of friendship almost literally.
Gold’s Gym will soon be opening its Cagayan de Oro City branch very soon at the Limketkai Center. It will be the first Gold’s Gym in Mindanao and only the second outside of Metro Manila and Luzon. This is an international household name with gyms in 30 countries and with over 3 million members. In Metro Manila they have been consistently included in the top 10 best gyms and fitness studios in that city.
Well-known Philippine celebrities with regular memberships in Gold’s Gym include Jason Abalos, Carla Abellana, Carlos Agassi, Ogie Alcasid, Gerald Anderson, Christian Bautista, and Kathryn Bernardo. Their usual programs include the latest cardiovascular and strength training backed up with all the latest training equipment. Their other dynamic programs include yoga, group cycling, mixed martial arts, muscle endurance training, and the latest Pilates training.
Gold’s Gym was established in the Philippines in 2002 and soon made a name for itself as having all the best and latest fitness equipment as well as the first in the country to introduce Jukari Fit to Flex workout, Body Combat personal training, spinning, general sports conditioning, a children’s special fitness program, Pilates, and yoga. Today, most professional and collegiate athletes in the Philippines go to Gold’s Gym, as well as celebrities from the beauty and entertainment industries.
In the international scene, Gold’s Gym is known to have an international brand recall of up to 93%. Names connected with the gym include Lou Ferrigno, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Adam Sandler, Hulk Hogan, and the American Gladiators. Recently in the Philippines, Gold’s Gym has become the official gym partner of Bb. Pilipinas, PBA, PBL, the Philippine Azkals, the Philippine Volcanoes, and the Powerlifting Association of the Philippines.
Gold’s Gym has always been tapped for corporate wellness programs such as those from the Gokongwei Group of Companies, Ayala Group of Companies, ePLDT, Chevron, HP, HSBC, Smart, Procter and Gamble, Xavier School, Unilab, Telus, San Miguel, and Johnson & Johnson. Based on their present gym setups in Manila and Luzon, their rates and air-conditioned facilities will really be giving fitness centers in Cagayan de Oro a run for their money.
If you check out their Manila and Luzon prices on their official website, they might come out different for Cagayan de Oro. They normally offer an introductory 5 sessions for Php3,500, 11 sessions at Php7,000, and 34 sessions at Php21,000, but all these will be haggled through before the opening of the gym in the city. It was also spotted on one of their posters that they’re hiring for the CDO branch. They’re looking for a Club Manager, Fitness Manager, Fitness Trainers, Front Desk/Membership Consultants, Security Staff, and Service Staff for Housekeeping (TESDA NC II accredited).
