I've had similar experiences to the other reviewers on here. 1 year ago I had to move away from my gym completely so I went in to cancel, they told me it was close to the end of the month and that they couldn't stop the next payment ... ? They told me not to cancel anyway as it would be better to "freeze" my account, they told me if I cancel now, if I ever want to rejoin, my membership would be almost double (i don't know why!) I froze my account for the "maximum 6 months" as instructed and... (read more)

I joined this gym a few months ago and have really enjoyed my experience - its small and friendly, the staff are encouraging and always on hand while I am doing my circuit training to give assistance and offer me tips on exercises. The price is reasonable considering I attend the gym 5 days a week and I am seeing super results, having lost not only weight but inches from all over. I cant speak for all the other Energie gyms around the country, and it seems like people are not getting a good... (read more)

I singned up to the central Milton Keynes gym on a Monday, on Wednesday they announced closing for refurbishment and closed by the Sunday. All the staff have lost their jobs. I emailed about a refund, sent a subsqubebt email to two other email addresses, still 5 working days later no response. Called head office twice, told there was no one I could speak to; at head office, think not. Asked my bank and visa for a reversal of the charges. Shame because the gym itself was good, but...

There was a complete lack of equipment to use in this facility, very disappointing & very steep at £30 per month, there don't even have any shower facilities in the club. For the same amount I could have a full membership at one of the local health club chains e.g Nuffield where there are a huge range of equipment to use aswell as spa & pool facilities, at least they have showers.

Never try to join this Energie Fitness club at Croydon. I have joined this GYM for 4 months contract and had a very bad experience with the payments and I lost two months fee(80£). As I have to move out of Croydon for few months, I requested to cancel my direct debit instead they had suggested me for Account freezing. I thought this is the best option and requested them to freeze. but they said this is close to the end of the month and cannot be cancelled at this moment. so 40£ was debited... (read more)

While the club itself is fairly basic, I suppose that is to be expected with the price. The changing rooms are often grotty but again, sort of expected. Where this club utterly falls down is when you try to leave them. Having given the one month's notice to the guy at reception - verbally and then writing it on a piece of paper in front of him, I thought that was it... Months later, I am getting numerous calls from their debt collection agency to pay the equivalent of 3.5 months of... (read more)

Firstly, i would like to state my dismay at having to rate this club with 1 star as it is a compulsory field. Ideally id have given it 0. Moving on, there are several points I would like to raise regarding this club. 1) I was originally approached regarding this gym from my own home. Gone 6pm one evening there was a knock on my door to which my husband answered. Once we had established that this was in fact a cold call, i started to chat with the young chap before me. He was pleasant enough... (read more)

Contrary to the previous review, I'll boldly state that I love this club. I work in Seaforth, so it's handy for me, and I wouldn't swap it for a Sefton Council gym, of which there are many nearby. As noted by the previous reviewer, the staff turnover has been exceptionally high over the past two years (not one!), but all staff have been helpful and courteous to me whenever I needed a program review. The current team are lovely and it seems that there is a manager and an assistant manager at... (read more)

I was looking to do one to one swimming lessons in Energie Dublin, and to use the pool outside lesson hours for practice. The price of one-to-one lessons was €25 for a 1/2 hour. They then tried the classic ploy by telling me that it was the last day of their "special reduced price offer" on gym membership.

I joined this gym in good faith after being injured previously. I really needed encouragement, which I didn't feel I got after signing a contract. I must stress I wasn't given any option but a year's contract which I knew was a bad idea but I was sweet talked into it promising if I had to change address again (which is a common problem with my job and life at the moment) I would be able to leave without any penalty.

I'm very disappointed. I used to like this gym very much and have been a member since the day I shifted to Northampton. However, the condition of the gym has been going downhill recently, after it was purchased by Fit4Less. Moreover, new members get a special price that isn't extended to existing members, who pay double the amount of what new members pay! Not many classes, no toilet paper, lockers don't work, steam room/sauna not working. (read more)

This gym looks tempting when you look at the mouth watering monthly fee.
However they have strong method of getting money from your bank account.
I cancelled my membership with a written notice and they kept on deducting
the money 3 months after the notice. I cancelled the direct debit, they reinstate it. They are very rude as well.
