The new 28,500 square-foot Gold’s Gym offers a variety of convenient health and fitness options for the local community. Equipped with state-of-the-art strength equipment as well as cardio machines outfitted with personalized LCD television screens and iPod docking stations, the club features spacious, full-service locker rooms, a juice bar, indoor cycling, a personal training studio, group exercise classes, kid's club, nutrition counseling and personal training, among other amenities.

“We are excited to open a Gold’s Gym in our community,” said Jim Czupil, who co-owns the new Gold’s Gym Linglestown location with his wife Dianne. “Gold’s Gym Linglestown offers local residents an opportunity to work out with high-quality equipment at an affordable price, in a friendly and welcoming environment.”
Spending most of their lives in central Pennsylvania, Jim and Dianne opened the new Gold’s Gym location December 1. Dianne has more than 20 years of experience in the fitness industry, eight working directly with Gold’s Gym as a director of group fitness, and Jim spent the last 25 years in executive-level positions working in several leadership and executive development roles.
