          Seriously that's crazy. 1 mil? Damn.
          …Time is so precious….and you need to ask yourself, what are you going to do today but more importantly, you need to ask yourself – how are you going to do it?

            As Gold’s Gym members arrived Thursday morning, they were greeted by signs in the building’s windows that advised them the facility was closed and that more information was available at a second Gold’s Gym location on Powers Boulevard, which remains open.
            My landlords were on my ASS if I was a day late on just ONE monthly payment. I can't imagine getting $1 mill. in debt. Crazy.

              Looks like Gold's International has stepped in and opened it back up today. We'll see how long this lasts.

              Skip,
              the same owner opened another location a little further south earlier this year but it's a lot smaller and a little farther away. We have the option of going to that one too

                So the corporate office came in and basically "laid off/fired" everyone or told them that none of their jobs are safe. This should be interesting

                  Bryan...I can understand your frustration...believe me I can. But do you really think...for one minute...a man who stepped out of a career to make 10x less in the fitness industry would do so unless he really loved fitness????

                  Ive been in contact with the person that everyone hates right now...they have no one else to blame so they blame him. He just lost everything he loved...all of his members....staff...his entire life has built around Gold's. He probably cleaned the equipment more then the cleaning kids. I cant say more than that...so thats it.

                  But to think he just 'got behind' on rent...stop listening to the media. Just stop.

                        As for the management, I'm sure there was more to it. Will the truth ever be published, who knows. Hell, there will be so many stories circlating nobody will ever know the real truth. I've dealt with my share of slack ass gym owners. I never met Trevor or heard anyone talk about him until this happened. Do I think he has a big part in this...YEP!

                        Prove me wrong

                          Why would I have to prove you wrong? You cant prove a negative. Just stop complaining. I dont even know if I still work for anyone, or getting paid for all of the time ive spent over the last week trying to keep our staff together. Trevor took care of me in many ways and has for 3.5 years...I dont owe him anything.....but im choosing to keep this going.

                          But, im not complaining, or condemning or anything. Even if he screwed up somehow...I dont blame him. Whatever happened has happened...so Bryan, I do understand you are frustrated and looking to blame or understand the situation. But it wont be happening soon. Ill give you an update when I know more...but I dont think we will see that building occupied by a Gold's Gym.

                          Thats just an internet opinion though

                            So you know, I don't see anywhere that I was complaining. I was stating what was posted in the paper and what was stated by a Gold's employee.

                            Did I like working out there..sure. Honestly, I haven't even been there for the last 3 months..check the records. My lower back is screwed. My wife and kids still go.

                            And I thought I was doing you a favor by trying to get the word out that they very well may not be rehiring current employees. Excuse me for giving a damn!

                              Finally talked to Trevor in person today...

                              He still is part Owner of Powers. Not sure how long that will last...since his business partner had to know (at least the lawyers did) that they were evicting Briargate 3 days before it happened.

                              Golds Corporate has taken over Briargate.

                              Not sure what will happen to the Briargate Location...to be honest. They have restaffed childcare, front desk, and GGX.

                              I meet with the HR person Monday to talk about Personal Trainers.

                              My personal feeling and this stays on this forum...is that in 2 months there is no way Briargate will still be a Corporate Golds.

                              LA Fitness just bought 172(ish) Bally's Clubs as well...very interesting out there right now.

                              Personally..I like Powers better anyway...but...time will tell.
