Biggest Gold’s Gym in the world opens in the Middle East

US-based Gold's Gym has opened a 14,000sq m (150,690sq ft) six-floor club in the Middle East.

The flagship gym – in Amman, Jordan – has a wide range of facilities, including four swimming pools and a range of studios such as mind/body, cycling and GGX. It also boasts indoor and outdoor gyms, three floors of dedicated ladies training zones and a Kid’s Club.

Mudassar Khan, Gold’s Gym Jordan chief operating officer, said: “The club is the world’s biggest Gold’s Gym and with size comes great opportunity.

"It was our core objective to create a fitness hub to appeal to all types of fitness-goers and cater for and understand the needs of people in the Jordanian market.”

Gold's Gym Jordan was equipped by Escape Fitness and has a boxing zone, as well as functional training and free weights areas.

Matthew Januszek, Escape Fitness co-founder, said: “Gold’s is aiming to attract younger members who favour functional workout regimes, improve PT sales and become the best club in the Middle East. We're thrilled to be helping them in this endeavour.”

Launched in 1965, the Gold's Gym franchise has more than three million members in 38 US states and across 22 countries.
