“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

“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.

Wrexham Total Fitness- I've been a member for approx 10 years, turned up today for my weekly swim, I have numerous health problems (Lupus, Hughes Syndrome, arthritis in my back etc...) and I was refused entry as my subscription apparently ran out yesterday! I've not received any letters informing me of renewal & I normally get at least 2 reminders when it's due with the new price. I was made to feel a complete idiot, I asked if they could call the admin centre to question my renewal but no… Read Full Review

I am wondering if anyone else suffers in the same way attending this gym in Prenton. I've wasted so much of my membership on a 2 weeks on 2 weeks off in recovery from a virus syndrome attending this gym. It happens every time no matter how much I do to prevent this. Short of walking around the gym wearing a mask and a pair of surgical gloves I am unable to prevent this happening. Ive attended TF on and off since 1999 and its gotten worse instead of better. Its run worse than a council gym not… Read Full Review

I am a member of TF prenton, and although I agree withs some of the above comments I am glad you will be leaving in July.
As paying members of the gym my children can use all the facilities they are entitled to use, its people like you that ruin the atmosphere of the place,.
Go join a gym which doesnt allow children, I hope you never had any of your own for their sakes!

And it's sanctimonious members like you who think that because they have children it makes them special in some way.

NEWSFLASH for you buddy. Your children are only interesting to you, and the same goes for their diseases! In a real gym, your sprigs are just getting in the way.

Written on: 21/04/2011 by hypercat (3 reviews written)

I have been a member of this gym on and off 3 times. When it opened, it was the best gym in the area - well designed, spacious and with a great pool and hydropool. I mainly use the pools, attend aquaerobics and classes. It is really noticable how badly standards of cleanliness and staff professionalism have slipped. Machines, fixtures and the hydro jet features are left broken and unrepaired. Staff numbers have noticably been cut and often they do not seem to be trained or professional… Read Full Review

I have had nothing but hassle with my membership. The 'use any gym' is nonsense as I began to use another gym and was asked to pay an extra £100. I have tried to sort this problem out for 4 months without much success. They then cut my membership short without my permission and failed to communicate with my during this decision. I have not spoken to the same person throughout the experience and would definitely not recommend this chain of gym to anyone! When I did use the gym, equipment was… Read Full Review

“TOTAL FITNESS, BOOTLE, NETHERTON, LIVERPOOL. ”

Written on: 11/04/2011

TOTAL FITNESS, BOOTLE, NETHERTON, LIVERPOOL.

What can i say!

This gym is supposed to be an exclusive privately run club where members pay good money to train and socialise, and yet it is run well below par with council gyms within the same area.
The staff are extremely ignorant and excel in bad manners.
The gym itself is dirty, and the toilets and shower are unhygienic.
Machines go off for repair and never return.
Subs go up without any forewarning.
So just to let everybody know and keep… Read Full Review

I have been a member for many years but things have not changed for the better. The cafe is understaffed and so is the gym.Many machines remain unrepaired for many weeks. The gym has just undergone a re-arrangement of the machines and they are situated in all the wrong places. Downstairs is the worst, its difficult to move around the machines and the tv screens cannot be seen from the exercise machines. If this is mentioned to the staff it is totally ignored… Read Full Review
