Iconic Fitness Brand Gold’s Gym Partners With Industry Leading Opendorse to Launch NIL College Athlete Ambassador Program

Decades after pioneering modern bodybuilding and fitness culture, Gold’s Gym again leads the way in becoming first gym company to launch an NIL program to collaborate with collegiate athletes nationwide

July 07, 2023 Venice, CA: Legendary Gold’s Gym has joined forces with Opendorse, the leader in NIL brand partnerships, to launch an exclusive ambassador experience. Ten collegiate athletes across nine sports were selected to become a Gold’s Gym Brand Ambassador – a program that will see opportunities for content, philanthropy initiatives, community engagement, media, and more.

Additionally, the selected athletes will be invited to the “Mecca Experience” in July at the original Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach, California where they will learn about the brand in greater depth, participate in workshops, create content, train with legends and meet celebrities and regulars that form the most iconic gym community in the world.

The first class includes six female and four male athletes across nine sporting disciplines.

While the program makes Gold’s Gym the first international gym brand to engage in NIL deals at the collegiate level, they have been setting trends in fitness since 1965, with an iconic heritage that few brands today can parallel. Uniting legends such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno to the modern day stars like Simeon Panda, Gold’s Gym has spanned decades of history to become one of the world’s largest fitness chains, without losing touch of the Venice roots at the heart of the brand.
