Gold's Gym SoCal : Press For The Chest 2019



Did you know breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death among women? Each year, over 252,710 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States. 

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) gives the gift of hope by providing breast health education to those learning about their risks, provides early detection services to those in need and helps those diagnosed with breast cancer.

Gold's Gym SoCal has partnered with NBCF for our annual Press for the Chest. All proceeds from these efforts go to NBCF:

1. All October, you can stop by your local Gold's Gym SoCal to purchase Press for the Chest T-shirts for $10.

2. Nominate your favorite personal trainer or group exercise instructor to complete push-ups! Donate $1 per push-up and watch your favorites complete them on Super Saturday, October 26th! Ask the front desk for details and to donate.

3. Attend one of our special group exercise classes! More info here:

4. Compete against other members in our Push-Up Contest on October 26th at 10am at all clubs! We'll pick a top male and top female winner and they have the chance to win Gold's Gear and a trip to Mexico! We'll make a matching donation to NBCF for the club that completes the most push-ups in total! Sign up below or ask your club for more details!
