SIMI VALLEY, CA — A newly renovated Gold’s Gym has “Cardio Cinema” where a room with exercise equipment has been turned into a theater.

Unlike most Workout Wednesday posts, this week’s installment refers to more of a workout location than a specific workout. This unique feature is the “Cardio Cinema”—a movie theater within a gym—and is located inside the newly renovated Gold’s Gym in Simi Valley.

The idea behind the workout is this: A dark theater is packed full of treadmills, elliptical machines and bikes, and a different film is featured every day. Due to the fact that show times wouldn’t be very convenient in a gym setting, the films are played on a loop, so people wanting to watch the entire movie can see it in its entirety if they stay long enough.
