Gold's Gym has announced the closure of all company-owned gyms across the country, including Texas locations. The company said the closure is meant to help slow the spread of coronavirus.
The locations will be closed through March 31.
“This is not a business decision but a humanity decision,” said Gold’s Gym CEO and President Adam Zeitsiff. “We want to protect our community and people of all ages by doing what we can to flatten the disease’s curve. To fight this virus, we have to stand firm with everyone who is working to contain the spread. We are truly stronger together.”
Gold's Gym is offering free premium access for members and non-members to GOLD’S AMP™, the company’s digital personal training app, through May 31, 2020.
Privately-owned franchised gyms will make their own decision on when and whether to close their doors.
All Gold's Gym locations have stepped up sanitary procedures and practices to protect their members and team members, the company said.
