“It was always filthy, now it's shut!”

Written on: 11/10/2011

I had a family membership there. The cleanliness of the changing rooms was poor and the shower facilities worce than a municipal baths from the 1970s. Complaints did no good. The free weights area was full of blokes in wife-beater vests admiring themselves in the mirrors and dropping their weights on the floor. TBH I'm glad it's closed as I won't have to renew my membership, I'll spend the money on a decent road bike instead… Read Full Review

“Total Dilapidation - Warrington”

Written on: 27/09/2011

I've been a member at Warrington for the past 3 years and during that time used the kids pool a lot with my boys as well as one of the evening classes. The past 12 months has seen a steady deterioration in the quality of the classes, the cleanliness and tempaerature of the pools (I took my kids out or TF swimming lessons as the large pool was just too cold) and the changing areas/toilets are nothing short of disgusting - Council run facilities are far better! Not a penny has been spent… Read Full Review

“Wrexham - CLOSED”

Written on: 23/09/2011 by totalrubbish (1 review written)

Wrexham branch of Total Fitness closed its doors on Thursday September 22. No prior warning to staff or members. In fact, they still had the audacity to take on full memberships the night before they closed. That's Total Fitness for you! Wigan branch is rumoured to be the next venue to close. Apparently it's going to be a warehouse for Tesco… Read Full Review

“PRENTON - WORSE THAN USELESS.”

Written on: 14/09/2011

Do not join Prenton, it will put you health in danger! Equipment is in disrepair, often has temporary out of order signs on for over 6 weeks. Weights are written on with tippex. Broken machines not always labelled as broken causing accidents to which health and safety procedures are not followed. Staff are scarce and the ones present are dishonest. Nicki Boniface is the worst manager I've ever met who blatantly lies. If you complain, she will tell you she will personally investigate and rectify… Read Full Review

“Heat is in short supply at Total Fitness Crewe!”

Written on: 09/09/2011

Joined TF some years ago as they have a hydro pool and I find its really useful for my arthritis. However, recently the temperature in the hydro pool, main pool and children's area dropped down suddently. The hydro water shoots no longer function properly and its actually cold in the 'hot' hydro pool. This is no use for me. On asking about the problems I was told a new pump had been installed and was being broken in… Read Full Review

“Total Fitness Preston and other branches”

Written on: 03/09/2011

Terrible, has continued to go down hill even after the takeover and promise of "substantial funds" has brought nothing other than a lick of paint to a few of the walls. Half the cardio equipment is on it's last legs and most of the free weights are missing or damaged. Some of the benches are even so bad they aren't even in a safe condition to use anymore. The air conditioning is never on and the showers are always cold. The staff numbers have fallen and there is only a handful of gym staff… Read Full Review

“DO NOT JOIN WILMSLOW”

Written on: 31/08/2011

Total Fitness Wilmslow are a disgraceful company with appalling service and broken/damaged equipment. On renewal Total Fitness Wilmslow wanted to charge an additional £100 to last year’s membership but with no improvement to any of the equipment or classes I am at a loss as to how they can justify this increase. I would have renewed at the price I paid last year £374, but they are not prepared to reduce the membership fee that was increased at the beginning of the year, so we are joining… Read Full Review

“Total Fitness - Altrincham”

Written on: 27/07/2011 by Locustman (1 review written)

Since the group filed for bankruptcy, there has been no investment in the equipment. The PecDec is actually broken with one of the joints actually hanging off, it had an "out of order" noticed attached, but that has been removed although it has not been fixed. Many machines are missing grips, or in a poor state of repair, this gym chain is finished, I would advise members to start looking elsewhere as they will soon be going under. The management are a disgrace, they just don't care. Don't… Read Full Review

“Total Fitness”

Written on: 27/07/2011 by missb (1 review written)

After being a member at Total Fitness for over 2 years and recently experiencing poor customer service and a declining standard of equipment, I can certainly say I will never join their gym again! The Edge Lane branch closed down abruptly without prior notice to its members, and as a teacher wishing to use this branch during the summer holidays I am now at a loss as to what to do. I use the Prenton branch during term time as it is close to my school, but am not willing to travel there during… Read Full Review

“Total Fitness Prenton Wirral”

Written on: 25/07/2011

I joined Total fitness 12 months ago and first impressions were very good. Pleasant staff and great facilities. I paid a bargain price of £295 on the web. Now my membership is due for renewal at £495. If all was well I think it's reasonable value for money, as long as you use the facilities. The problem is that over the last 12 months there has been a steady decline in the overall look of the place. It's starting to look very shabby with numerous machines either completely broken and… Read Full Review

I use this branch when on my way home from work during term time (I'm a teacher over there). Totally agree with everything you say - it won't be long until Prenton closes down just like Edge Lane did a few weeks ago. I'm certainly not renewing my membership there.

“Please help take action against TOTAL FITNESS!!”

Written on: 18/06/2011 by Sherryberry (1 review written)

I am going to take total fitness to the small clims court for a full refund. They took £800 from my credit card to pay for 1 years membership for my husbands 'suprise' birthday gift! The first day we used it we discovered that Total Fitness Huddersfield was disgusting, it was filthy and everything was out of order.The next day I went back and took lots of pictures all with the consent of the very disgruntled staff. I have been fighting for a full refund since November 2010 and they refuse to… Read Full Review

All of their branches seem to be of a similar state: run-down, broken machines, dirty equipment, untrained staff...the list goes on and on. Will never become one of its members again! LA fitness is definitely worth a look - my local branch is friendly, spotless and has excellent equipment. Good luck with your claim - I intend to get a refund of the remaining money owed to me after 1 of the branches I use completely closed down without any warning. They're saying I can't have a refund as I joined another branch and not the 1 that closed down? I've never heard such rubbish so I need some advice - can anyone help?

Bolton was poor too. Had the signs saying that sweat towels must be used etc. but these were never enforced.

Saunas and steam rooms were often out of order.

Pool was disgusting so stopped using that.

Open a dispute with your credit card provider - you'll get the money back and they can fight the battle for you.

“Wakefield Gym Rubbish”

Written on: 29/05/2011

I joined Toatl Fitness Nov 2010 and paid £295 for the year. I must say the gym is very clean and tidy however there is equipment thats not working water fountains not working tiles missing off the steam room that hurt you backside. Showers which stay on one temperature. I have asked them a number of times to sort some of these problems out especially the weight training machines and the broken water fountain next to the Hydro pool. All i get is its in the pipeline, i'm sorry but the pipelines… Read Full Review

shocking very personal comment about the "main manager" think you should perhaps speak to him about his weight face to face, maybe he may have an explanation about his weight! I use TF Wrexham and find it very clean, tidy and professional, and have personally found the manager very helpful and keeps his staff in line hence why the place is clean and tidy, DW yes is brand new but small, dark, and unfriendly especially for kids.

Personal insults are not the way forward.I wonder if you would be Man/Woman enough to insult him to his face. The staff are extremely helpful. But lets compare DW to TF. DW has new equipment, but its small, no natural lighting, no hydro pool or standard size pool, no Sauna, Squash courts. TF has two pools, lots of natural light in the gym/pool area. 2 Sauna's+ steam room, Sauna in Gents and ladies changing room.In DW at peak time, there a queues for use of equipment.So your happy to pay to stand around for an hour before getting on a treadmill.
