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.
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

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

I've been with Chester Total Fitness for 10 years, since it opened. I only used it for swimming and last year's sub. of £265 was ok value. But this morning I got the renewal letter asking for £350! And with no promise of warmer water. Bye bye… Read Full Review

and to top it all they want to charge £495 and thats if your willing to pre pay £45 A MONTH
WHAT A JOKE! rival gyms would charge atleast £100 LESS… Read Full Review

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

TF closed their branch in Lancaster on Tuesday 5th March. After two days of being told that they'do not have that information at the present time and you will be contacted in due course'' they finally offered'continued membership'' at either their preston Branch...20 miles away or a gym called VVV which is on the wrong side of town and will sometimes take 1 hour to get to and from. I asked for a refund as their options were not acceptable and thay told me that i had to write to them and expalin… Read Full Review

Do not join this gym! I have been a member at Walkden for the last 4 years. Within the last couple of years the gym has rapidly declined. The equipment is in a poor state of repair, majority of staff are rude and the place is always dirty. The mebership has increased with a promise of investment and renewing equipment! This has not happened and in fact the place is worse now than ever. I predict total fitness will in fact go out of business at this rate!!!… Read Full Review

Since being joint members at Lancaster TF for the last 3 years we have noticed a decline in the level of cleanliness and maintenance of the equipment and I would have to agree on an earlier comment from anther reviewer about the staff - some of which don't even bother to greet you upon arrival with a "good morning". This of course may all be due to what was happening in the background which until Tuesday night most if not all of the 4000 members were oblivious to, its closure. Having phoned… Read Full Review

I was a member of Lancaster T.F.from it's opening in 2002 until it closed on Tuesday 15/3/2011.I have watched it steadily decline in standards of hygiene and equipment during this time.The 'Free-weights' area at times resembles a scrap yard with equipment left at random over the work area.It is not enough to say 'members should replace weights after use' it requires staff supervision.Machines constantly breaking down,most Dumbells with no weight markings,Barbells showing plate weights and not… Read Full Review

I personally cannot see the arguement people are trying to make below, people say they have paid £295 last year and its gone up to £495, it is clear as day you got an introductory offer, I also have noticed a lot of complaints about the cleanliness of gyms/pools etc,what we have to realise is there is a lot of members compared to the staff, i believe the staff do a reasonable job bearing in mind how few of them there is, another thing I want to add is that for the prices some people claim to… Read Full Review

I would NOT re join this Gym or recommend it to anyone. Having been a member of Whitefield for 4 years it is in a dire need of repair. The club is dirty, needs Vacuuming (pretty basic i would of thought), full of dust. And most of all the equipment is sub standard. The equipment that is working requires things like weights jammed under the seat to lift them up there are never enough Karabiners, weight pins. And there are always a number of machines broken or in a poor state. The clientele… Read Full Review

I was a member of Total Fitness until January 2011. I then received a letter to renew my membership at a discounted Annual Individual price of £495. I could not believe this as I had paid £295 the previous year. I was not happy with the gym anyway, the equipment is constantly out of order, showers broken and on a few occasions the pool was closed because human waste was floating in it. The staff don't seem to care at all. They expect people to pay a 68% price increase for unhygienic… Read Full Review

Well, after 10 Years at Huddersfield I've canceled my membership.
I've finally had enough of dirty machines,mats,floors,loos and I haven't swum since I found a used tampon in the pool!!!!
Some of us are on the point of calling the public health dept!
Someone is going to get injured as those machines that still work are on the point of failing.
All this for more money - no thanks.
Going up-market - more like going down the sewer.
I can't see the place lasting as customers leave in droves… Read Full Review
