Exercise and Fitness – Gold’s Gym Douglasville, GA

What’s Your Type?

Zero in on your gym type with this quiz—crafted by Gold’s Gym Fitness experts—then learn how to mix up your routine for a better workout.

We got in touch with two Gold’s Gym Fitness Institute members to help you identify your fitness personality. Belisa Vranich, a clinical psychologist and author of Get a Grip: Your Two-Week Mental Makeover, helped us craft insightful questions; and Robert Reames, author of Make Over Your Metabolism, gave us suggestions for how each personality can revamp or adjust their workout for the best results. To get started, take the seven question quiz below.
