“Obviously I am not the only person GymWorld has stolen...”

Written on: 12/11/2014 by Copelandqi490 (1 review written)

Obviously I am not the only person GymWorld has stolen money from. The failed to delivery some gym equipment I order from them several months ago and have not refunded my PayPal account. They use a flaw in PayPals dispute system which automatically closes the dispute after a number of days. They said they would refund my money, but I haven't heard back from them since the PayPal dispute case closed automatically. Do not buy anything from GymWorld, I feel like I have been robbed… Read Full Review

“AVOID AT ALL COST!”

Written on: 09/07/2014

After waiting more than four weeks and being fobbed off with excuse after excuse as to why they can't deliver the item that I ordered and paid for I am sick to the back teeth. I've rang them almost every day for the last three weeks in order to find out when I shall be receiving my order, all I've had is false promises that somebody will ring me to arrange a delivery date, excuses that the person dealing with my order isn't available, their account manager isn't answering his phone etc… Read Full Review

“Do NOT do business with this company!!”

Written on: 27/03/2014 by pgDavis1963 (1 review written)

I reviewed this company before buying and seen that it had a few poor reviews, mixed with a few good lately. So I though 'how bad can they be?' I was extremely wrong! I purchased a treadmill on Feb 14th 2014, and paid for the 5-8days delivery method. The reason I purchased with this company is because it would mean that i would receive my treadmill quicker than any other company could offer. After THREE WEEKS, i finally received my treadmill. However, it was not as smooth as that. During these… Read Full Review

“This Company Should Rebrand As Dimworld!”

Written on: 09/03/2013 by Chaz87 (1 review written)

I ordered 4 pairs of dumbbells from Gymworld, and as far as I was aware, the order had been completed. I then receive an email 7 days later informing me that they didn't have the equipment in stock, would I like to proceed with the order, which could take up to 14 days.. I decided to go ahead. After 18 days of waiting I receive an email from the same employee who tells me, actually, they don't know when the equipment will be back in stock! I was obviously annoyed with the amount of time I'd… Read Full Review

“First class company!!”

Written on: 27/11/2012 by TonyWindross (1 review written)

Having read some of the very negative reviews of Gymworld on review sites after I’d placed the order (for a treadmill and upright exercise bike) I was nervous, to say the least! There was an initial delay as the bike wasn’t in stock, which meant that delivery of the two pieces of equipment was delayed by a few days. But a new delivery date was agreed – and everything happened like clockwork. The two guys were confronted with a massive treadmill to remove (from a tricky location) – but… Read Full Review

“Couldn't have been more helpful”

Written on: 20/11/2012

We ordered a treadmill from them. We contacted them for advice about which would be best to buy for our needs. Plenty of useful advice and no sense of trying to ell us the most expensive. It was delivered at precisely the time that they said and was left in perfect working condition. Small company with the personal touch who want to do their best. Couldn't fault them… Read Full Review

“Avoid like the plague! ”

Written on: 31/10/2012

Ordered a treadmill using there finance offer. The next day it was reduced by £100. After several calls and no replies as promised they agreed to match the price and I went ahead with the order. On the day of delivery I received a txt from the delivery company to confirm my time slot. An hour after the time slot and no treadmill I phoned the delivery company to see if it was on route. I was informed that my treadmill had not been made available by gymworld for them to uplift. I them phoned… Read Full Review

“Faulty goods and told I'd have to deal with the...”

Written on: 11/12/2011

I ordered 2 items from Gymworld who on first impression had an easy to use web site and competitively priced goods. Upon delivery It became apparent that one of the items was faulty and despite contacting Gymworld, I was told I'd have to deal with the manufacturer. After calling the manufacturer, I was talked through how to take the item apart and check the circuit board for loose connections. Eventually I found a loose connection and the item started to work. However, the integrated speakers… Read Full Review

“Poor delivery and faulty goods delivered”

Written on: 02/09/2011 by mikerouse (2 reviews written)

When I spoke to people over the phone at Gym World they were all polite and helpful, but unfortunately their positive telephone manner is let down elsewhere in the system. My items were in a pending state for about 2 weeks before I finally called to chase them up. Previous emails had gone unanswered. I was informed that the step was out of stock and other items were waiting for delivery from a supplier. Some days later and I got a phone call to see if I would accept an alternative colour to… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/04/2011 by DaveStone (1 review written)

I rang them up to ask them about cross trainers as I had no previous experience. I explained that I had a budget of £600 so the first cross trainer they directed me to was one for £2800!! I explained again what my budget was so they asked me if I had considered credit so I could afford the £2800 cross trainer!! I then asked which was more beneficial a front wheel drive or rear wheel drive to which after consulting with a colleague was that the front wheel drive had the wheel at the front and… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/02/2011

Ordered a Keys Fitness KF-LEG leg machine which was discounted at 50% at the point of purchase and the sale completed.

Got an email from them later advising the item was out of stock. No advice as to when the item would be back in stock, which isnt normal customer service.

After checking their website, it was found that the item had been put back to full price and they obviously didnt want to sell at their advertised and purchased price.

Wont purchase again from a company that lies rather… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2011

I received the goods on time, unfortunately one of the goods was faulty and I have spent over two week emailing and making numerous phone calls trying to get the goods returned for a replacement. Gave up in the end as I did not get any response from Gymworld and Barclaycard are now dealing with it on my behalf trying to get me a refund. Will never deal with this cowboy outfit again. As the equipment I purchased from Gymworld was made by York I also emailed York to let them know how their… Read Full Review

Mikerouse's Comment

Written on: 02/09/2011

I was interested to read this especially because I bought a faulty York product through Gym World. York had to replace my item directly, which they did quickly and politely when they took charge of the matter. Gym World are some sort of cowboy outfit and I won't be using them again either.

Avoid Gymworld at all costs is my recommendation, i wish i had done some more research on them so i would have avoided the hassle and time wasted

I ordered a cross-trainer on 3 Jan and it stated next working day delivery, on the 5th Jan I contacted them to ask where my goods are, they then tell me the model i ordered is out of stock and won't be in till February, they offered me a replacement and i agreed.

2 days later i have to chase again to be told that the replacement item is also out of… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/01/2011 by Tsange (2 reviews written)

I ordered a product from their website and didn't receive a order tracking email. I emailed them and they didn't get back to me, I phoned and the didn't answer. Finally I got someone on their IM function after waiting 10 minutes. The parcel arrived with a sticker on it saying it was part of a set?

Overall, "100% satisfaction guaranteed"? You must be having a laugh!

Plan for the future is to go on this website before I purchase from a unfamiliar website… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/09/2010

Can't speak any higher of the people at Gymworld, they gave me advice which found the right crosstrainer for me, they offered me a little money off to help me get a better machine closer to my budget and to be honest, when the machine arrived, I wouldnt have minded paying full price! Delivery was on the day I requested, which I needed to assist with but that was explained when I ordered. The website is one of the better I had seen whilst doing my search for the crosstrainer. My advice is to… Read Full Review
