Olympic weightlifting isn’t just for Olympians anymore. At Gold's Gym SoCal, we're committed to providing our members with the most up-to-date equipment, which is why we've been installing Olympic weightlifting platforms throughout our clubs. The platforms are inspired by the Olympic discipline where the objective is to lift the highest total weight in the clean and jerk and the snatch. In recent years the sport has made its way into mainstream fitness programs and now into Gold's Gym SoCal.
Thrive means to prosper and flourish. And that’s exactly what we want for all our Gold’s Gym SoCal members, which is why we’re excited to announce our newest workout program is available at our newest location. First launched at Gold’s Gym La Mirada last year, THRIVE can now be found at Gold’s Gym Northridge and will be coming to more locations in the future. So what’s THRIVE and what makes it different?

In honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, which celebrate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements and contributions of women throughout history and contemporary society, we’re getting workout inspiration from 10 of the world’s most powerful female athletes. These trailblazers (and we know there are many) have expanded the notion of what’s possible while breaking barriers and setting the bar for both men and women in sport.
