48 SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2016 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM Best Health Club/Gym Gold's Gym 2485 Hope Mills Road 910.424.0678 or www.goldsgym.com/hopemillsnc/ Gold's Gym opened 11 years ago. Since day one, the owners, Mike and Skip, knew they wanted to be a part of the commu- nity and to make a difference. They already knew how to make a difference for gym members — cre- ate a great workout space with state-of-the-art equipment, well-trained and helpful staff, challeng- ing classes and inspirational teachers and coaches. And they did. And the people came. And got buff. The story could have ended there, but it doesn't. That's just the first chapter. Mike and Skip wanted to improve the health of the community they serve, so they started spon- soring community projects like back-to-school supply drives, coat drives, food drives and more. Not because they had to, but because they want to see the people in the greater Fayetteville area prosper. They firmly believe "We are here to improve individuals' lives and out community."
