Ex-Marine, Owner of Three Gold's Gyms, Is Loyal to IHRSA

Gordon Johnson heeded the words of IHRSA in the 1990s when it said it was smart to hook your health club wagon to a brand that is recognizable and stands for something.

That was 1996 and he opted to convert his gym to the Gold’s Gym brand. Now he has three locations in Georgia and is entering his fourth decade in the industry.

CBI magazine sat down with Johnson for its First Person question-and-answer feature. 

Check out CBI magazine online to see how he got into the business, how being a Marine got him to where he is now, why he has stuck with IHRSA, and more.
