“LA Fitness Piccadilly ”

Written on: 10/06/2013

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

This_Is_Me's Comment

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

“Awful Gym - Don't Waste Your money!”

Written on: 23/05/2013

Awful gym. Air conditioning in studio and gym has not been working for over a month. The Club Managers have said it will cost them too much to fix! People are close to passing out due to the heat. Equipment is out of date. Lots of equipment doesn't work. The club Manager didn't even know how to work the cross trainers!! Complaints to Managers have been ignored. Complaints to head office ignored. Please spend your money elsewhere and avoid this chain of gym - I wish I had!… Read Full Review

“Overcrowded, Awful Charges, Poor Communication”

Written on: 20/05/2013 by lewreview (1 review written)

This review is in no way directed at the staff of my local gym, but the company as a whole and its operation. From its long-winded process of cancellation, absolutely sub-par online presence whereby it's impossible to find the information you're looking for despite always harping on about 'my LA zone' and why you should use it. It doesn't work properly, flat out. Gyms are overcrowded, not enough equipment for amount of gym-goers, some clubs don't have squash courts despite paying same price for… Read Full Review

“If you want any chance of reaching your goals, don not...”

Written on: 17/05/2013 by martynfowle89 (1 review written)

In my experience here this gym is disgusting. first of all when signing up if anyone at the gym including the manager tells you, that you are free to cancel your contract within the first month they are lying. the pool is freezing and small, there are a lot of machinery which is broken, some will cost pennies to fix but yet they just leave it broken at your inconvenience, the staff just seem to walk around socialising amongst themselves and are very unhelpful. when you sign up you also get a… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Gym”

Written on: 17/05/2013 by Browntown1990 (1 review written)

LA fitness (Kettering) has always been a brilliant gym, the staff are familiar and friendly, personal trainers are helpful and know their stuff, cleaners often at work ensuring a high standard. If you want to get fit then this place is ideal. I had noticed a lot of unstaisfied reviews and I believe many unjustified. If in any doubt take a tour see how you feel and let's be honest you don't need to exercise in a palace to get fit. I mean look at rocky IV he exercised in a barn! And he still won… Read Full Review

“Bayswater shambolic gym”

Written on: 17/05/2013

This gym is the worst gym I have ever attended.The first time I used the changing room I was informed I needed my own lock for the locker- not very helpful to discover this 5 mins before my training session. It is impossible to get into a class as they are always full . The one class I attended(core strengthening) the teacher gave no instuction other than do this do that. I was not asked if I had any specific injuries - no tips on technique or advice was offered . The staff are disinterested… Read Full Review

“DO NOT JOIN”

Written on: 03/05/2013 by neilthomas (1 review written)

LA Fitness never informed us when joining that we needed to give one complete calendar months notice to leave. We have been with the gym for over two years and it cost over £60 (nearly 2 months fees) to leave because we handed in notice just after a direct debit payment was sent. Their customer service and accounts are appalling. Other problems at the gym with pool out of order and equipment failures If I could give no stars I would… Read Full Review

“How Do These People Generate Business?”

Written on: 26/04/2013 by Squicker (2 reviews written)

We were looking for a private pool for my son to learn to swim in and LA Fitness had a 'family' deal on of £40 per adult and £8 a month for a child to come along too. We took advantage of a 3 day free 'test' and went with our son to LA Fitness in Brighton. When arriving I asked if there was a cafe where I could sit while my partner and our son swam, "no but we do have a coffee machine". I then asked what the wi-fi key was, "Sorry we don't have wi-fi". My partner then asked where the… Read Full Review

“Horrible gym and money grabber - Brighton Road Purley ”

Written on: 23/04/2013

I joined a 12 months contract last year, it said on the contract if you want to terminate the contract after 12 months, you need to give them 1 calendar month notice, so I did that and then they said their interpretation of 1 calendar month is actually TWO MONTHS notice so now they keep hassling me to pay for an extra months fee! The gym changing room was filthy, the shower stalls were disgusting with black moulds on the shower curtain, wall tiles and floor tiles, the soap dispenser got black… Read Full Review

“ROBBING SCUM”

Written on: 19/04/2013 by rgilmour (1 review written)

I joined on a 12 month basis mainly to use the pool after work, which was small and always full, which I understood as I did go at peak time. The staff were always friendly although more interested in flirting with each other than helping you use equipment. The gym itself is small, and the equipment is worn. The classes were always booked up and had extra turn up that didn't book online that were allowed to join in, resulting in no room for the ones that actually did follow the booking… Read Full Review

“The worst customer service I have EVER experienced”

Written on: 16/04/2013

I was a member of LA fitness until recently, when I had reason to be unhappy about a change they had brought in regarding children's swimming charges. What the charges meant in real terms to me was a hike of £24 per month on top of my £40 per month membership. I tried to explain to the manager at the club that the charges had the effect of making my membership financially unviable. I was quite rudely told to either pay it or not come in, they didn't make the rules, head office did. I… Read Full Review

“Fraudulent money grabbers”

Written on: 13/04/2013

I used to work in the contact centre in doncaster. Mal-practise and greed was prevalent. 'get as much extra cash from members as possible' should have been the motto. Every last working day of the month-the phone lines went down???? It became a staff joke-it was only because they could get another months payment from those wishing to cancel their memberships on the last working day of the month. They did not want conscientious customer service advisors (such as i-which is why i was hounded out… Read Full Review

“Simply the worst”

Written on: 13/04/2013

Where to start... Terrible customer skills of the staff. Lets put it that they are mostly just rude. Equipment is cheap and last century. Gyms itself look like they are underground organisations- dirty, smelly, not looked after. Ever personal Trainers -who tend to generally be smiley and friendly ppl- ate grumpy and unfriendly unless you are their Personal customer. I fail to understand how the gym manages to run for so many years and why ppl do join it. I have been to few of their "best", most… Read Full Review
