The TG The Gym brand is a gym concept that goes back almost 40 years to their first location in Pacific Beach California. TG’s inspiration is the golden era of bodybuilding. TG The Gym spawn from the bygone days of Golds Gym, and World Gym.
It all started in 1986 when George Jackson and Rick Stephenson took over the failed Gold’s Gym in Pacific Beach, CA. With several locations in CA, and now 2 in Arizona, TG The Gym continues to grow and expand.
Why TG The Gym Phoenix? Isn’t there enough gyms?
The gym industry has changed dramatically over the decades. Many would say, gyms have gone soft. Today’s gyms have lunk alarms, members get shushed for grunting too loud, and some gyms will even kick members out for dropping weights. They may as well say on their door, ‘no heavy lifting allowed’.
What happened to the old school gym? What happened to the place where you could go to get your workout on without being scolded for making some noise? What happened to the gym where you shake the floor from a successful deadlift? In today’s corporate box gym, those things are not allowed. The focus is to be a family friendly gym, a judgment free zone, a kinder softer gym with no big scary bodybuilders or powerlifters.
TG The Gym fills in the gap! TG provides a place for the hardcore, the heavy lifter, and the jacked-up bodybuilder. It’s a safe place to be loud, to train hard and make some noise. At TG The Gym Phoenix, it’s ok to be yourself, train hard and not look back. With that said, you don’t have to be a bodybuilder or a powerlifter to be a member at TG Phoenix. If you’re looking for a gym that will inspire you TG Phoenix is the place.
What can I expect at TG The Gym Phoenix?
