The roughly 40,000 square-foot Chandler gym is located at 4950 W. Ray Road in the Sunset Plaza shopping center and will feature state-of-the-art equipment and amenities. This includes two separate turf areas for functional and athletic training, a sauna and pool, massage chairs and a full suite of boutique-style GOLD’S STUDIO classes – GOLD’S FIT, GOLD’S BURN and GOLD’S CYCLE – along with a diverse schedule of group exercise classes, GOLD’S 3D body scanning technology, a Kid’s Club and an expert team of certified Gold’s Gym personal trainers.

The gym’s development is led by owner Jad Awale. Awale, who has an extensive background in franchising, is a first-time franchisee with the Gold’s Gym brand and signed an agreement for the future development of five total locations. The Chandler agreement for the first of those five gyms was finalized at the end of October 2018. 

“It is such a great privilege to bring Gold’s Gym back to the Arizona market due to the huge fitness hype in our state and the reputation this gym has in the fitness world,” said Awale. “For almost my entire life, I have been an avid fitness lover. To see others achieve their potential through fitness is what drives me, and it is one of the main reasons I decided to get involved in this industry and be a part of this brand.”

Those interested in a membership prior to the grand opening of Gold’s Gym Chandler can access pre-sale offers online via, or they can visit the pre-sale office located on the NE corner of Rural and Ray Road, just three suites down from where the new Chandler Gold’s Gym is opening.
