“Still Mis-Selling After BBC Watchdog Program”

Written on: 11/10/2013

Terrible company. Joined their Lincoln club after the membership adviser expressed an interest in me working hard on my swimming. She said she was a former Scottish National swimmer and wanted to get back into coaching. I told her I was considering Total Fitness over the road and she offered to give me free coaching sessions if I joined. I did, and the sessions (or session) lasted 5 minutes before she made excuses and left. Beware, unlike most gyms, you are signing up to a credit agreement… Read Full Review

“WORST GYM EVER! DO NOT JOIN!”

Written on: 28/09/2013 by Sandeep1980 (1 review written)

Joined the one in central London city. Way over subscribed, never any machines free during peak times but they don't seem to care. Place is packed with rubbish PT's trying to sell bussiness and just pestering people during workouts. The same PTs hog equipment with they clients during peak hour. - No one puts any weights back. - They don't stock all the different weights so constantly searching the gym. - Water fountain broken for 2 months straight now, no other alternative. - 90% lockers… Read Full Review

“Deceptive sales presentation”

Written on: 30/08/2013 by amauriced (1 review written)

LA Fitness in Holborn is using deceptive practices in their advertising and contracting. They advertise a two-month membership, which I signed up for. I confirmed with the rep more than once that the term was indeed two months, and confirmed with the manager as well. I found that it is actually a rolling membership that requires 30 days notice to cancel. This was not disclosed. Apparently, negative news coverage has not prevented them from continuing these practices… Read Full Review

“Worst Customer Service Ever (Salisbury Club)”

Written on: 20/08/2013

I have booked my classes online through MYLA, and I was on a waiting list for Body Balance Class on Monday. Therefore, I didn't attend to the class. And when I checked my MYLA account today. It mentioned that there has been 3 strikes and I am banned from booking classes. I rang to LA Fitness Salisbury, and spoke to very rude lady, she said that she called me. However, i didn't received any call or voicemail. She said that I need to have the responsibility to answer my call at all time… Read Full Review

“Poor service”

Written on: 19/08/2013 by Shah1234 (1 review written)

Went in to try out the club on Leadanhall Street, London a few mins ago. Was told I can't join today as they were full?! I saw, at most, 10 people in there! Told them I would be trying Virgin Active, if they can't join me today. They were happy with my decision. Worst service!… Read Full Review

“WORST GYM EXPERIENCE EVER”

Written on: 16/08/2013 by Bright77 (1 review written)

I joined LA Fitness in January 2013. They have a new computer service within the center, so you can join there and then, without ever seeing the paper contract that you sign. Herein is a big problem, because what the staff tell you is that it simple to cancel your membership, but as I have come to understand this is anything but. Buyer please beware, LA Fitness is not concerned with your health, their concerned with your money!!! It was a horrible 5 months ordeal to cancel my membership, all… Read Full Review

“LA DISASTER SOUTHGATE”

Written on: 05/08/2013

i was encouraged to join for one year - on a twelve month installment of payments - the man who sold me the membership did not mention having to cancel it after twelve months or it would continue as a 'ROLLING CONTRACT' i found this out when calling to confirm my last payment - i had been to the gym a few times in the first month throughout my one year contract and no - one ever called to ask why i was not bothering - they just chase the cash and have no sense of customer CARE. the man i spke… Read Full Review

“Amateurs!”

Written on: 03/08/2013

DO NOT JOIN THIS GYM!!! Air conditioning: Hardly works at all. It is hot and airless, especially in the studios. Changing rooms: No air conditioning, smelly drains, toilet often out of order. Classes: Timetable is often wrong so people turn up for a class only to be told it started 15 minutes ago. Often when the regular instructors are off LA Fitness do not organize cover so people turn up for a class and find that there is no instructor. Class Booking: Classes get booked up a week in… Read Full Review

“LA Fitness Piccadilly ”

Written on: 26/07/2013

I would go as far as saying, I would not recommend this gym to my worst enemy. The nicest part about this gym is the reception. Everything from thereon in is truly shocking. It has the hottest male changing rooms I've ever witnessed. You actually sweat more getting shower and changed after your workout than you do whilst actually working out! The air-con has been broken for over two years (no exaggeration). Each time I ask about it, apparently the "approval is still with head office"… Read Full Review

“Avoid LA Fitness Victoria ”

Written on: 24/07/2013 by OriginalOwusu (1 review written)

For the area and money you pay you would think that this would be a well managed gym with quality facilities and great customer service from the manager. Wrong I've been going there for over 2 years through corporate gym membership with my workplace. Generally there are more people in the gym than it can accommodate so you find yourself time-wasting in the heat with no air conditioning. The punch bags upstairs have been deteriorating for a while and have now been broken for over 3 weeks… Read Full Review

“A great Gym with Good Facilities”

Written on: 06/07/2013 by Rlboro (6 reviews written)

Having recently got back into the gym and noticing that LA fitness has a lot of poor reviews I thought I would add my comments. My experience has always been great with this gym chain. I have only used my local Colchester LA Fitness but the facilities are great. The steam room is always hot which is something many gyms seem to overlook. The facilities are of a good standard so I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good gym in Colchester… Read Full Review

“Trap!”

Written on: 23/06/2013 by pleasebefair (1 review written)

I joined the gym in Derby UK, and realised that once you join the gym they will make it as difficult as possible for you to cancel your membership, even if for reasons like moving to another city for job, and this is after I have finished the 12 months I signed up for the contract by the way. Also I wasn't allowed to freeze my membership either if i'm going abroad for a month of holiday. They just want as much money out of you as possible without shame! They basically shut every possible way… Read Full Review

“I purchased a trial 2 months membership specifically...”

Written on: 20/06/2013

I purchased a trial 2 months membership specifically specifying there are no initiation fees and no contract. However, after the initial charge of 68 dollars my card was charged monthly. I have not signed any contract authorizing the LA Fitness to do that, neither was I warned about cancellation policies and such. When I came to speak to the supervisor Kamini Pather at LA Fitness Dallas Mockingbird Location she yelled at me refusing to provide a 3 months refund or an original contract that… Read Full Review

Substandard facilities despite a high monthly membership fee. There are better budget gyms than this for a third of the price and plenty of far superior health clubs available for a similar price or only a few pounds more… Read Full Review

I would go as far as saying, I would not recommend this gym to my worst enemy.

The nicest part about this gym is the reception. Everything from thereon in is truly shocking.

It has the hottest male changing rooms I've ever witnessed. You actually sweat more getting shower and changed after your workout than you do whilst actually working out!

The air-con has been broken for over two years (no exaggeration). Each time I ask about it, apparently the "approval is still with head office".

The gym equipment itself just needs chucking out. It's all broken. Four of the six bikes have no resistance, i.e. effort level one is the same as effort level 12. Clearly the machine is faulty.

They have the audacity to charge £40 for 5 sunbeds. I've just had one and 7 lamps weren't even in the sunbed and the rest were either blinking or faded...

All in all a really shocking gym.

“couldnt care less once they have your bank details”

Written on: 07/06/2013

Brightons LA fitness is the new standard for disgraceful customer service!.. I've been a member for a month and have found myself in financial difficulties which has led me to want to cancel my membership early. When i signed up they said nothing about the terms and conditions of my membership so once I wanted to leave .. oh they all came rolling out! I first of all went into the gym asking to leave early and I had my bank statement ready to show as proof documentation.. until I was told to… Read Full Review

“Awful membership services and practices”

Written on: 06/06/2013

My experience at the LA Fitness club in Oxford was awful. The changing rooms were often quite dirty, and the showers smelled of mold. The exercise area was often so overheated that even after a casual run, I felt dehydrated and overheated. On top of all this, because of the poor conditions at the Oxford club, I quit attending last fall. Of course, after my membership officially ended in January, they continued to hit my bank account on direct debit. In the U.S., this is against the law. Here in… Read Full Review

“LA fitness, Brighton”

Written on: 05/06/2013 by GeorgeRoboz (1 review written)

Today, like many times before I've been thrown out of this place minutes before their actual closing time. Lights were turned off, music long stopped BEFORE we, at least 10-15 members, actually could make our way to the changing room (so we had to go there in complete darkness). I've asked members in the changing room and everyone said, unanimously, there was at least 3-4 minutes to go, and also the clock in the changing room shown 21:55. This happens more and more frequently. There is no air… Read Full Review
