Gold’s Gym Fitness Fair is May 20

The 2017 Gold’s Gym’s Fitness Fair gets under way at 11 a.m. May 20 and runs until 3 p.m. at the gym at the southwest corner of West Catawba at I-77. More than a dozen vendors will be on site, including Pierce Family Chiropractic, Carolina Age Management, GNC and Clean Juice.

Gold’s plans spin classes, a group fitness sampler, and free health assessments, as well as craft beer, food trucks and a bounce house for kids. There will be raffles from various local businesses as well as gift cards  and gift baskets. All proceeds will be earmarked for Big Day At The Lake (www.bigdayatthelake.com) which helps put at-risk kids from Big Brothers Big Sisters out on Lake Norman for a full day of fun. The event is free and open to the public.

“We’re proud to be a part of the community, and this is our way of giving back,” said Jesse Fabricant, who runs the Cornelius operation for Gold’s Gym. The nationwide chain of gyms traces its roots to the 1960s in Venice Beach where it was founded by Joe Gold. It’s now the largest chain of co-ed gyms in the world, with more than 3 million members in more than three dozen states.
