Feb. 24: The city got its second Gold’s Gym today.
State transport minister Chandan Brahma inaugurated the gym on B. Borooah College road.
“The new gym has equipment of Life Fitness, USA. It also has 22 LCD-fitted cardio machines, besides modern equipment, especially for the ladies. It also boasts of features like separate spinning studio and aerobic room,” said an organiser of the event.
The gym is being promoted by Live Strong Health and Fitness Pvt Ltd owned by Rajendra Singh Rajpal.
Bodybuilder Bobby Singh, who was present at the programme as a brand ambassador, said he has not been to such a gym till now. “It is just amazing,” he said.
Gold’s Gym started in Venice, California, in 1965, and soon became the hotbed for the development of training techniques, equipment and nutritional concepts that formed the foundation for the modern fitness revolution.
In 1975, Gold’s Gym received international attention when it was featured in the major motion picture, Pumping Iron. It was, thus, effectively established as the “Mecca of Bodybuilding”.
Today, Gold’s Gym has over 700 facilities. It is the largest international gym chain in the world recognised for its passion, unique heritage, and experience as the final authority in fitness and lifestyle.
Prasanta Dutta, a city resident who came to the inauguration, said he would send his son to the gym. “It is a nice gym. I am thinking to send my son here,” he said.
