    Who is a member at this gym?
    Is it wall to wall porn stars/hot muscle gay guys?
    Is it the place to workout for every self respecting gay in SF?

    I've seen the men coming and going from Gold's and they are pretty much the same fitness and gym crowd as 24 Hour Fitness (where I go).

    Perhaps there is a separate "Porn Star Entrance", so I don't know if inside it is hotter than what I see releasing onto Market Street.

    I prefer 24 Hour Fitness because I had a membership when I moved here, and I only pay US$79/year. Yes, per year. I also have my free choice of any of the 24 Hour Fitness gyms around the U.S. (Up to the Sport category).

    If you're visiting, you might want to do the Gold's thing just because the gym seems to be bigger and more fully equipped than the 24 Hour Fitness which is located in the Castro.

    I like when my gyms are bigger and more fully equipped. icon_wink.gif

    I worked out there for 6 months... Just like any other gym except its mostly men in there.

    P.S. There are large signs indicating in the showers and locker room that if anyone is caught in a sexual act, they're expelled.

    I go to Castro golds and yes it is filled with hot men. Def worth checking out if you like eye candy. As for the signs, they are generally ignored with no reprocussions

    I work out at the Gold's on Brannan in SOMA and I like it a lot more than the one in the Castro, both in terms of eye candy and the facility (it's much bigger and more open, a lot more free weights, many more specialized machines). I found myself waiting for equipment a lot at the Castro Gold's. A few of the studios are nearby so I'd say the one in SOMA probably gets as much or more porn star traffic than the one in the Castro. Both gyms are majority gay men, probably 90% or more based on what I've seen.

    I do and it is better than castros but the Castro gym is a 10 minute walk from my house while soma is about a 5 minute drive. On weekends it is usually soma and weekdays it is castros.

    I like soma too but I've always enjoyed men in there 30s and 40s and it has them in plenty. I seriously feel like a creeper there lol

    Im a member and yes it's wall to wall porn stars and muscle guys. You can't even walk in there it's packed so tight. It's everything you imagined and 100 times more. There's hot manly man sex in every dark corner. Just like a porn set. Every self respecting gay is required to work out there, yes. Its a major stop on the gay tour bus.

    And don't forget to call our town "Frisco." We love that.

    I don't ever remember any "porn star-hot" guys any of the times I've worked out at the Gold's in the Castro. More like "garden-variety average-looking guys. One thing I do remember is that the locker room/shower area smelled like a busted septic tank...

    Worked out at Gold's a few times as a visitor, and it was okay.......but I like Equinox better. It is good seeing guys seriously working out, and not so much preening in front of mirrors.

    The guys in SOMA are definitely hotter. They have an edge to them that the Castro boys don't have.

    I have gone to 24 Hour Fitness at Portrero and that gym is smoking hot! A bit small, but smoking hot!

    I work out at both the Golds Castro and Soma. In general, the Castro location does have a lot of hot guys in it, and yes, lots of mild sex (fondling, hand jobs, maybe a blow job) does happen in the (low self-e)steam room. So I don't go in there much unless I really need some steam (not the sexual variety). Saturday and Sunday nights seem to get the most traffic to the steam room. There are guys that I regularly see coming from the steam room that I have never seen working out ;)

    The equipment at the Soma location is miles better its much bigger and spaced out, it feels more cramped at Castro and they don't have everything I need, particularly for legs and core. And there are less machines/stations, so when it's busy, it can be hard to get your routine done. The Soma location's steam room is just as cruisy as the Castro one, but the traffic is lighter most times. Most serious body builders opt for the Soma location. During busy times, you might wait 5 minutes for a cardio machine at Castro, but I have yet to have to wait for one at Soma.

    Porn stars at both gyms, but Soma gets a few more because they are more serious about training. The porn stars are not any hotter than the other guys working out IMHO, sometimes less so.

    Even though I lived in Twin Peaks, above the Castro, I always went to my gym, 24hr Fitness, on 2nd & Folsom... you see, I want to workout, not be distracted by a lot of super hot guys, including porn stars, that I know I can never have.... would rather workout than be disappointed....

    Well...Idk how it is for anyone else but in this far Southeastern county, Gold's Gym is the only 24 hours around, so basically that's where everyone goes...young, old, man, woman, gay, straight. It's actually the one place in this redneck hillbilly concentration camp that doesn't seem to have any sort of discrimination issue. As long as you are into fitness, you are welcome at our Gold's. Plus, the staff at our Gold's is effin kick ass.
