Youth, and everyone else, is served at this Gold's Gym

Some clubs do programming. And then there's Gold's Gym of Suwanee/Sugar Hill, just outside of Atlanta.

The club, owned by Chris and Jauxniece Palmer gets members started early, even creating original classes that may be used elsewhere, and keep it going all the way through the senior years. There is a 38% attendance rate from its more than 4,700 members, of at least one class per week.

And it must be doing something right as it was named the best programs out of all 650 franchises worldwide.

And there is more where that came from, as you will see in this week's IHRSA Member Profile.
