Founded in Venice, California in 1965, Gold's Gym rapidly became the centre for the development of training techniques and nutritional concepts that formed the foundation for the modern fitness revolution.
Today, Gold’s Gym has over 700 facilities across the globe, of which 65 are located in India. Its first Indian branch was set up at Nepean Sea Road, Mumbai in 2002. Currently at each location in India they have more than 2,000 members enrolled to utilise their services like: Personal Training, Spinning Studio, Massages, Steam Room and many more.
Gold’s Gym facilities are equipped with expensive gym equipment, and hence, controlling access was of prime importance for them. However, they wanted a biometric access control system for their members only, which would them to utilise the gym’s facilities. A fingerprint based access control system was required which could enroll the fingerprint image of all its members. At every location, Gold Gym has a membership base of approximately 2,000 members which they expect to escalate quickly.At every location, Gold Gym has a membership base of approximately 2,000 members
The basic requirement of the fitness station was to allow access only to valid members, on the basis of their fingerprint image. Another requirement was to grant its members access to the premises only for the duration of their membership. Further, integrating the existing Tally software (wherein they store all their membership details) with access control software was also mandatory for Gold’s Gym.
Matrix' comprehensive solution provided access to members using their fingerprint image. At every facility of Gold’s Gym, fingerprint based biometric door controllers were installed to monitor access. This allowed entry only to valid members. In addition, the respective member’s photograph is displayed on the monitoring window when he/she accesses the door.

All 2,000 members could now be configured under a single door controller by utilising COSEC PANEL LITE.
