Don Dickerson?. that is the SORRIEST **** I have ever met in Golds Gym Marin. He is a lifeless individual with not an once of personality and is just as racist as anti-gays. I am honestly surprised that he hasnt been **** slapped for the way he is changing Golds and if I was his supervisor I wouldnt hesitate to get rid of him or SLAP him two times!!!
This is a ploy to get out of their franchise agreement. I hope Gold's coporate sues him good for breach of contract and defamation of character.

The Corte Madera Gold's will never miss my money. I had intended to sign up this week. They can now be the "Gay Paradise Sweat Works" or any other name they want. They have marginalized themselves by their ignorant intolerance of "non-PC" people.
