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!
