In addition to that, Cutler ensured to give recognition of the renowned Gold’s Gym and its distinctive features. “I would say…the most impressive I would definitely say is Oxygen gym, when I went over to Bader’s gym but I would say I love the mecca of bodybuilding but I have to give credit to Steve Weinberger’s Bev Francis powerhouse gym,” the pro spoke.

The American star athlete detailed his reasoning for the Gold’s gym as “They take out alot of the good pieces. They’ve taken out a lot but they always seem to be the first ones to have the newest stuff back in the day. But I miss a lot of the pieces you know, even the leg press, I think they changed the leg press.” 

Hence, he finally listed his best gym as Oxygen Gym when he was in Kuwait, given the biggest space followed by Steve Weinberger’s. Yet, Cutler couldn’t seem to move past his affection for the Gold’s gym. He once again expressed his love for the place and mindfully pointed out that its aura and atmosphere were and remain unmatched by other gyms. “You never know who you gonna see,” he concluded.
