Gold's Gym and Exeter Township Fire / EMS Join Forces

Gold's Gym and the Exeter Township Fire/EMS Department have joined forces to develop a partnership that will enable our fire and EMS personnel to utilize the state of the art facilities throughout the region. Our physical fitness team will be working with Gold's to develop programs for our members to help promote physical fitness. Since many of our members live throughout the region, the new partnership will allow those members to not only utilize our local Exeter Township gym facility, but also their facility in their home town! We will also be able to have training sessions at their indoor facilities (fitness rooms, pool, weight rooms, etc.) We look forward to a long partnership with Gold's Gym!
