The World Gym Franchising Legacy
U.S. Owned, World Renowned
In the early 1960’s, World Gym’s founder, Joe Gold, set out on a mission to change the world by improving people’s lives through fitness – and he did just that. From shaping legendary bodybuilders such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Ferrigno and Dave Draper, World Gym has been a catalyst for remarkable success stories that showcase the incredible potential of the human body.
Starting as a small, single location at Muscle Beach in Santa Monica, California, World Gym has grown into a globally recognized gym brand that has set the gold standard in bodybuilding and strength training gyms.
