Gold's Gym franchisee group Gold's Gym SoCal recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and the renovation of its Hollywood, California, location. The celebration event was held from April 28-April 30 at the Gold's Gym located in the Hollywood Television Center on North Cole Avenue.
The open house featured a health and fitness fair that included complimentary food from a variety of local restaurants, a beer and wine garden, hourly prize raffles, a live DJ, dance performances, group exercise performances, a photo booth, body painting, henna, a caricature artist and informational booths from Gold's Gym SoCal community partners.
