“I signed up for 39 plus joining fee and my boyfriend...”

Written on: 14/07/2014 by MylesBrooks199 (1 review written)

I signed up for 39 plus joining fee and my boyfriend was as a add on. We were told by membership if he did it on that day he would get it for 30 per month. Turns out that cant be done and without me knowing as I trusted them they charged 37 per month. We have now paid it all due to the unhelpfulness and rudeness. Nothing but stress . This is woking branch and head office. Dont join. Theres other gyms around that treat you better and actually have air conditioning thats works… Read Full Review

“Do not sign any contract with LA fitness”

Written on: 02/07/2014 by Ozici (1 review written)

Everything is a big lie that they show with photos on their website. Their saloons are rotten almost. No hygiene whatsoever. There are lots of legal gaps for their benefits in the contract. Don't ever give them your bank account details… Read Full Review

“repairs never done or only after several months”

Written on: 14/06/2014 by wkCarver59 (1 review written)

Repairs of air conditioning, showers, toilets, audio boxes on gym equipment etc. are either not done or often take months. I was recently told by a manager that official policy is to wait until 50% of audio connectors are faulty before the head office permits repairs - which basically means they are never done. Even though it is one of the cheaper gyms I don't think this is acceptable … Read Full Review

“Cancellation lost and charged me for 2 extra months”

Written on: 09/06/2014 by helzuk (1 review written)

I have been with LA fitness for 4 years and cancelled my membership on a temporary basis whilst a family member was ill. I then received a threatening letter to begin proceedings unless I paid 2 month's membership. As I do not wish this to affect my credit rating I felt forced to pay. I only wanted a temporary cancellation but now I will never rejoin LA Fitness and will not recommend them. Shocking customer service to a regular member… Read Full Review

“Gym good, naked pool area users BAD!”

Written on: 02/06/2014 by hkWeaver125 (1 review written)

Gym is ok for what you pay to be fair but the gym closes way to early at weekends! The one time you actually have time to go!!!! They tell you it's due to a lack of interest but this is not an accurate reason. Google Noah's ark naturist swim, they use the pool area every Saturday and use the whole are naked!!! Not just the pool as the gym will tell you, their own website states they use the jacuzzi too, the jacuzzi which has a sign stating you must wear swim wear at all times for your safety!!!… Read Full Review

Im taking time out of my busy schedule because I feel as though you people need to know how awefull this gym treats its members . Don't try to cancel because they will make it impossible !!

“Cheating about cancellation”

Written on: 06/05/2014 by 248Bailey (1 review written)

Signed for a membership for 6 months and added my husband to my contract as Adult membership, which mainly means that he is only paying for month in front and can stop his membership anytime with 30 days notice. Have cancelled his membership in February, so his last payment had to come off at end of February (for April). End of April have cancelled my membership as well (got pregnant and faxed a copy to prove my pregnancy), so mine had to end in May with the last payment in April. But at end of… Read Full Review

“LA Fitness Burnham worst gym ever!”

Written on: 04/05/2014 by Butlernv477 (1 review written)

I've joined many a gym and this is the worse one I've ever been a member of. Cold showers (most of the time) with no apology or notice up from the manager forewarning you. The place needs painting and a refurb and is very run down. There's also no water in the gym or surrounding area. There is only water in the changing room and that very rarely works. I've emailed the manager several times and have never had a reply. They constantly email me with questionnaires but nothing ever changes. The… Read Full Review

“free trial and timewasting at Highgate 'new' LA...”

Written on: 29/04/2014 by Reevesve362 (1 review written)

two managers refused me a trial because email to me and street flyers invitations failed to state their arcane rule - failed to say you need photo ID (no other gyms in London do)which I did not have - apparently fearful of locker theft which is a problem with their membership - will not be returning nor recommending to friends as LA Fitness do not understand customer service and I would never contract with such a poorly managed business… Read Full Review

“The most awful gym I have ever attended ”

Written on: 27/04/2014

Do not sign a contract with them, they are incapable of acting in a humanly decent manner. My financial situation has changed drastically since I joined is September, but since I am a student and it is my parents financial situation and not mine (they live in Zimbabwe) they will not allow me to cancel the contract. I literally cannot pay them and I have no idea what to do… Read Full Review

“Avoid LA Fitness Ewell ”

Written on: 26/04/2014 by vicky33 (1 review written)

Since joining LAFitness Ewell I have been dissapointed with the customer service. I felt pressure to join to get the best deal, then finding out that 2 days later a better deal was available, i made a complaint about the lack of lanes in the pool which was ignored and then my free pt session left me in pain. The worst part was when I contacted the personal trainer I was told it was normal muscle ache. The pain had stopped me sleeping for 2 nights! My partner booked his PT session with a… Read Full Review

“Leadenhall ”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by O'Neil388 (1 review written)

I was initially apprehensive about joining LA Fitness again as I had had negative experiences with the gym while a student at Loughborough - my membership being mis-sold to me and then being lied to and ignored by LA Fitness representatives while they vehemently pursued me via debt collectors. Just as a side-note to anyone else going through a similar problem - don't be bullied into giving in! I didn't pay them an extra penny! However, the gym is conveniently located just five minutes away… Read Full Review

I had contract for 2 year for £ 36.60 per months, after a year I became a student so I asked them to reduce my price to £20.00, they said you have to sign another contract for 2 years,I explained to circumstances but they don't listening you over the phone and send my application to ARC Collection and still demanding money of me,saying that I didn't gave them all required docs which proofs that I cannot pay them but I did!!! They are liars in customer service! What a terrible job they doing… Read Full Review

Sorry you're going through this...this happened to me, too (sent proper docs, they said I didn't). Keep records of everything you do and send them (write down names, times, dates) and contact Citizens Advice. They will notify the proper authorities and give you advice on how to handle this. Don't be bullied!! You obviously have a lot more important things to focus on (studies) and are only trying to stay healthy in the meantime. LA Fitness has proven that your health and well-being is their last priority. Stay strong!!

“LA Fitness Guildford - HELL HOLE”

Written on: 17/03/2014 by AmericanGirlInLondon (2 reviews written)

Run, run, run from this sorry excuse for a fitness facility. I've been a member of many gyms, some better than others, but never anything as so completely awful as this place. I wish someone had written a review before I joined, as I could have avoided so much frustration...This is just a few of the issues: 1. Classes are completely booked. After sold a membership BASED on the fact that there would be Pilates, yoga and strength classes available to me as this is the ONLY reason I wanted a… Read Full Review

Its worth saying that LA Fitness is in a lot of debt and because of this they are applying for a CVA, This will affect the Guildford LA Fitness “if” it gets accepted, The plan is to sell 33 of the branch to another company (in Guildford’s case surrender the building back to the landlord)

I’m sure you will agree that place need a lot of money pumping into it !!!

Just for your information the CVA gets agreed or rejected on the 24th March 2014 – failing the CVA getting agreed the company faces possible administration (which is very likely if it is rejected)

Ether way the club will be changing hands or possibly closing

Thank you for that information! Now it's more clear why they have sold us a contract based on untruthful information. Also, further proof that this place has been run poorly, not to mention unethically and unlawfully. It's shocking that this place has been in business this long considering how many negative reviews it has received.

“LAX ST BOTOLPH'S Gym”

Written on: 10/03/2014 by zuJensen298 (1 review written)

Joined gym only to discover that along with music that is played out loud (nigh club style) every 10m or so you get publicity! That's right publicity played through the gym sound system, very loud style. From cars to deodorant you have it all. When I ask to have the volume reduced, I am generally meet with indifference and unfriendly stares. Today I made 3 requests and more unfriendly stares. It was final drop for me. I cancelled the service. 2 stars go for clean facilities, but considering… Read Full Review
