Gold's Gym Introduces Les Mills BODYPUMP® and CXWORX™ to Los Angeles Gyms

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 22, 2011) - Gold's Gym, the largest full service gym chain in the world, is rolling out two world-leading group exercise classes, Les Mills BODYPUMP® and CXWORX™, at six locations in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Les Mills BODYPUMP® is the original barbell class proven to sculpt the entire body -- the formula of intense weight repetitions and cardio is scientifically proven to build long and lean bodies and shape without the bulk. In each class, you perform around 800 repetitions of basic free weight exercises, and burn an average of 560 calories.

Les Mills CXWORX™ is the newest addition to the Les Mills stable, and is a short, 30-minute workout that strengthens and tones. Core training is one of the hottest fitness trends in 2011, and CXWORX™ improves your torso and sling muscles that connect the upper and lower body, and is ideal for tightening the tummy.

LES MILLS® classes are enjoyed by millions of people in 80 countries around the world each week. They are effective and fun, and deliver the results people want, combining great music and passionate instructors who inspire exhilarating workouts.

BODYPUMP® and CXWORX™ will now be available to Gold's Gym members in Los Angeles.

Les Mills West Coast CEO Steven Renata says Gold's Gym is one of the leaders in the fitness industry. "Both our companies have strong values and a shared belief that we can change people's lives for the better through fitness. It's fantastic to partner with Gold's Gym in Los Angeles."
