Gold's Gym Closes Abruptly in Greenbelt Mall

No sign posted, gym equipment gone just before the holiday season.

It may have taken gold in our Readers' Choice for best gym in Greenbelt, but the Gold's Gym located in Beltway Plaza Mall closed abruptly just before the Thanksgiving holiday.

A Patch reader wrote into us to notify us about their closure—noting that the gym closed overnight on Nov. 21, but the space was cleared out of the gym's equipment. However, there was no note on the door explaining why.

It closed so quickly the Beltway Plaza Mall directory still lists Gold's Gym as an open business. Members missing their workouts can go to the gym's nearest locations in Laurel and Bowie.

While we figure out why it closed, let us know if you're surprised about its closure. A Planet Fitness recently opened in the same mall—do you think competition is what closed the gym?

Competition and the basic fear for one's safety by going to Beltway Plaza Mall at any time of day, regardless of day or night. I'm surprised 3 Brothers and the few remaining "established" Greenbelt businesses have remained there rather than look to move to other areas closer to the center of Greenbelt up 193.
