Gold’s Gym is one of the country’s most popular gyms, and the parents of one of its customers are wondering how it can help their son, who is two.
The gym says it is an important part of the family’s workout routine.
“We believe that the Gold’s gym is a great place to go for the first few weeks of your baby’s life to get in the groove and learn the basics of gymnastics,” said Heather Cottrell, the parent of two-year-old Max.
“The quality of the equipment and training is amazing, and they are super knowledgeable.”
Cottrell said her son started training at the gym about three months ago and now she has three of his older siblings training together with him.
Her husband is a professional weightlifting coach and was working at the Golds Gym last summer when Max joined him.
Max has gone to Golds twice since then, but he said he has never seen such a large group of athletes training together before.
It was one of those things that we were so happy that Max was able to participate, said Cottell.
“It was a really positive experience for him.”
The family has seen an increase in fitness at the facility, but Cottll said there have been some other challenges with the new training equipment.
When Max was a toddler, his mother took him to a gym that was a little bigger and had a lot of equipment.
Cottrill said it was “really hard to fit all the equipment into one gym space.”
“They just don’t have the proper gear,” she said.
“We’re very fortunate that they have the Gold gym.
It was super helpful.”
At Golds, the gym provides a great atmosphere, and its instructors are well-trained athletes, Cottrel said.
Cllllrell said the gym has a few other perks for parents, too.
They get to spend time with their babies in a natural setting, which helps with bonding, she said, and their babies get to meet new people.
For Cottsell, her son is now spending more time in the gym than he has at home, and she said the new equipment is helping him to get into the groove.
Gold’s Gym opened its doors in 2010 and the family moved in in June.
