Gold's Gym Christmas Party

This December marks our first Christmas with the Gold's Gym Family. We celebrated on the Jade Lady III, a lively and entertaining dinner cruise where staff & management were able to eat, relax, savor the sunset and just have fun. We know that it's the people who work at Gold's that make the difference for all the members, so we graciously thank all our staff: Brett, Bel, Rochelle, Nelly, Willy, Matt, Jacque and Shey as well as our spin & yoga instructors: Susan, Mieko, Lewie, Emily & Tyce.
In 2010, we endeavor to improve Gold's with the completion of the Reception/Cafe/Locker Room renovations in addition to more classes and services.
We welcome all suggestions and comments. Please leave your comments at Gold's Gym or email:

Thank you, Vicki!

Vicki Daniel, guest spin instructor from Hilo returned to Saipan last week to help inaugurate Gold's Gym Saipan's spin class. Vicki currently teaches spin at the University of Hawaii at Hilo and has also taught at Gold's Gym Guam. She was able to spend extra time with our instructors to teach them the details of spinning.
For those who endured her grueling class, they learned proper technique and hopefully, enjoyed the tough workout!
Classes this week (Nov 9-14) are scheduled on
Mon, Wed: 6-7pm
Tue, Thu: 5:15-6:15am
Sat: 8:30-9:30am

Not only is Vicki a great spin instructor, she also won first place in the Masters division for the PIC Guam 1/2 marathon! Next up... the San Antonio & Honolulu Marathons!

Good luck, Vicki and thank you very much for your kind assistance!

Yoga at Gold's Begins Today!

Gold's Gym is continually improving its product and services. Today, Clarie Kosack, former owner and instructor of the Yoga Room, will begin her weekly Saturday morning class.

The class will run on Saturdays, from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. Please bring your own mat if you have one, otherwise there will be mats available. All the props from Yoga Room have moved to the Gym for your use. As always, come a few minutes early to set up.

If you are Gold’s Gym member, the class is currently free. If you are not a member yet, you have many options to choose from including:
1. Purchase a Day Pass at $10 which offers not only the class, but also use of the rest of the gym all day long
2. Purchase a SUPER 10 Ten-Day Gym Pass, at $50, which offers ten classes plus the use of the gym, a great bargain, and the price is good until the end of the year.
3. Become a Gold's Gym member!

Clarie is excited to start our yoga journey again and she reminds her students that the practice of yoga is a self-discovery journey we take in our own mind and spirit, so that no matter where we are, we keep our focus within.

Gold's waiving enrollment fees until November

Gold's Gym Saipan will waive enrollment fees ($99) for new members until November. This decision coincides with the ongoing renovation project. The interior painting is nearly complete with the rain gutter and water catchment repair in the beginning stages.
One section of the wall near the chin up bar is painted a darker brown so that members can use the wall to climb up to the bar.
The next phase will be to re-do the women's locker/bathroom with new flooring, tiles, shower, counter and vanity area.

Gold's gets a facelift

Earlier this week, we commenced the start of the first of many projects to renovate Gold's Gym and give it the much needed face lift it deserves. The upstairs painting is now complete with the apricot/peach shades brightening up the workout, stretch and cardio areas.
The beams are slightly darker than the walls which gives it a nice contrast.
True, it was difficult to choose a paint shade to match the green and purple ceiling beams.
But then, we agreed that nothing will really match and we had to choose colors that promotes energy and vigor!
In the coming months, we will add some large sports photo murals to enhance the walls.
For any questions regarding Gold's Gym Saipan, feel free to email me at I welcome our members' comments and suggestions. We have also placed a comment form and suggestion box at the entry. Please feel to complete and we are reading each one to ensure that your suggestions will be considered!
