“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

Written on: 26/04/2011 by Elliebes (1 review written)

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

Written on: 19/04/2011 by jennyohare (1 review written)

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

I failed to renew my Hull membership in February after 6 years with TF. I am over 55 but used all the facilities and thought it was good value compared to David Lloydd where i had been for the pre 7 years.

The toilets always smelt of urine and the bogs had never seen domestos but i kept coming back for more. Now there are loads of gyms near me all cheaper and all much superior, do not join TF until you've shopped around, you will get free passes to try out the options and you'll dicouver a… Read Full Review

I was a member of Total Fitness Preston but I left last summer. Staff were rude and talked to members like they were rubbish. The club started going downhill when they appointed a new manager who had an attitude problem. Pool dirty. Spa pool constantly out of order. Machines took weeks to be repaired. Ladies only gym hot stuffy and airless. Not enough electric fans to go round. People in cafe had no idea how to cook the simplest things! Menu unimaginative and not healthy. Classes were… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/03/2011

Sadly my ten year membership of total fitness huddersfield is at an end. I payed 325 last year and like many others can't afford the rise to 475. It's a suicidal rise in prices and is going to lead to the business going bust. The gym has lots of broken equipment and is not very clean but I tolerated that for the convenient location. Good luck to the management but I can only see one outcome - administration!… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/03/2011

Total Fitness in Wrexham is rumoured to be closing down shortly. Last week Lancaster closed down as well as three clubs in Dublin.
Wrexham has lost over 2000 members to DW Fitness since last September and with people leaving in droves as their contracts expire...it looks certain Total Fitness Wrexham will close.
I have no sympathy for Total Fitness. The first rule in business is 'Look after your customer...or someone else will'. The place is an absolote tip. The machines don't work, the… Read Full Review
