“On the decline! don't sign up!!”

Written on: 21/03/2012 by this.guy....matt (1 review written)

I joined TF in 2008 and found the price of £29.99 a month for a student very good compared to other gyms with the standards matching it's rivals. However by 2010 the standards were slipping and the TF in Crewe was becoming very bad. Ignoring the fact my locker had been broken into twice, the gym equipment was not being maintained at all with machines commonly out of order.Furthermore there was no air conditioning and the pools were becoming colder and colder. Me and my friends visited TF in… Read Full Review

“I ONCE LOVED IT, NOW I LOATH IT ”

Written on: 19/03/2012

In recent months TF have lost there once high standards. The pool is cloudy and showers are dirty, I understand that they may need to cut costs but hygiene is something I'm not willing to risk. Swimming in a cloudy / dirty pool everyday is not what I want when I'm paying for a gym membership. Luckily I have been a member for many years so I could cancel at anytime, which I did. I would have preferred TF to put up my monthly bill and keep their standards, it seems they didn't agree - As they… Read Full Review

“Total Fitness Preston. Total rip off.”

Written on: 03/03/2012

Unfriendly and uninterested staff. Everything is dirty. The indoor running track is good until the novelty wears off. Half of the members seem to know the staff and get better service. They also look like they are planning to steal the contents of your locker. The smell is wrong. The equipment is old. Just look at their website to see how poor the quality is. Avoid this terrible gym!… Read Full Review

Reading these reviews it seems the whole chain maintains the same low standards of cleanliness, customer service and equipment investment. They will soon be out of business....again.

“total fitness wilmslow”

Written on: 22/02/2012

From the moment you stroll past the uninterested staff on reception you know you are in for a dismal experience. The lockers are shabby and the lower ones full of dust and hair. The equipment is so old and clapped out it is frankly a a joke. Simple things to put right like ab frames with the head rests ripped to shreds, machines not cleaned properly, machines not maintained. Cleaning is with buckets and floor mops sloshing dirty water over the machines, they need someone who knows how to clean… Read Full Review

So true. I feel that the management are unintelligent and not customer focussed at all.

“Total Fitness - Altrincham”

Written on: 01/02/2012

The equipment is old and poorly maintained. It takes literally months for anything to be repaired. The staff are clueless, they don't even know how to work the equipment. The men's changing rooms are dirty, they just hose down the toilet area, which smells, I have never seen any detergent being used. I can no longer justify paying the monthly fee and often come away from the gym angry as a third of the equipment is out of order or in poor state of repair. They deserve to go bankrupt… Read Full Review

“Lincoln - going downhill”

Written on: 28/01/2012

I have been a member of the gym for a few years and have found it is going downhill. Equipment are all old and new ones never been bought.. Changing rooms very good sized but showers not very hot water. Hand driers don't really work. No air conditioning so it is horrible in the summer for classes. No classes before work so only gym can be used. Lots of classes but ones I usually do have dropped so was going less. I have now joined a different gym that is allowing me to use any of their gyms in… Read Full Review

“Poor Quality”

Written on: 24/01/2012 by pssedoff (1 review written)

ALTRINCHAM BRANCH ================= Only half the (mens) showers are ever working at any one time. ALL showers and ALL toilets are broken at the moment because of a \"major problem\" and have been for at least 24 hours now. This last straw is why I'm writing this. Water fountains are invariably out of service, which is great when you are parched after a hard session and only discover this when you are desperate. In summer the place is too hot and they would rather put the (useless) fans on… Read Full Review

i have been perusing over various comments on total fitness and i am not in the least surprised in the comments that i have read. i have only came across a couple of positive posts. at a creditors meeting re the closure of the irish gyms the senior executives of the "new"ly formed total fitness 2010 were referred to as "thieves" conditions at my local branch are attrocious. run down,broken equipment,thick dust and cobwebs hanging from pipes,girders and indeed the upper reaches of the walls.this… Read Full Review

“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

Totally agree - Total Fitness is badly run, badly maintained and they do not care a damn when you complain.

“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

Odd how these so called members who have these opinions keep using the gym and renew there memberships yearly! If it is so bad there are better ways of expressing your opinion!

“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
