A lot of customers claim that Gold’s Gym Al Barsha Mall has state-of-the-art equipment and excellent group classes. It is a comfortable environment and it is very spacious inside. The gymnasioum is apparently very clean and the toilets are always hygienic and tidy. There is additionally a ladies-only section which is a huge advantage for women who want to train without the presence of men.
However, there are some common critiques about the staff, size of toilets and overall customer service. Many clients have had a bad experience with dealing with some of the personal trainers and receptionists. Additionally, there are only 4 toilet cubicles, which some customers find to be inconvenient due to the volume of people that train there. The ladies-only area is also very small and not equipped for professional trainers.
The Bottom Line
Overall, Gold’s Gym Al Barsha Mall is a good, hygienic gym that gives women the opportunity to train in complete comfort too. We recommend this gym for those who are not beginners and are likely to train during the day. If you are a beginner and can only train in the evenings, we do not recommend this gym due to the congestion in the evening and lack of support from the staff.
A good, hygienic gym with excellent gym equipment that gives women the opportunity to train in complete comfort too. Congested in evenings, small sized toilets and improvements could be made with customer service and staff experience.
