Weider and Gold: Two Iconic Names in the Fitness World

If you’re fairly new to the bodybuilding and fitness world, shopping for your fitness equipment and machines and get a little confusing.  There are so many infomercials with fitness gadgets that are just a waste of time and money.  If you’re not familiar with all the brands that make fitness equipment, you might be in risk of buying something that is poorly manufactured.  Like any other products, there are names that are synonymous to reputation.  The two iconic names in the bodybuilding and fitness world are Gold and Weider.   If you learn anything from this article, just know that these two names mean high quality.

Gold’s gym has been around a few decades and the very first one that founder Joe Gold decide to build was in Venice Beach, Ca.  Joe has successfully built his empire to become the largest fitness membership worldwide with about 3.5 members strong.  Before you can only drive to go visit Gold’s Gym outside of your home, but now they’ve manufactured products for household use.  You can now find Golds gym home equipment online and through stores so that you can work out in the privacy of your own home.

Another highly respected name in the fitness industry is Weider.  A Weider home gym is like having a mini gym facility on one machine.  This is a great solution for those lacking enough space to buy individual home fitness equipment.  The benefit of having one of these multi gym units is the fact this allows you to work out all the major muscle groups such as your chest, arms, back, shoulders, and legs.

Remember, the brand doesn’t mean much if you’re not sure what your fitness goals are going to be.  If you want to lose weight then you should consider looking into aerobics machines.  For those looking to gain muscle mass, then you would look into buying weight lifting equipment.
