I'm going to be as polite about this as possible, as I don't want to stoop to your low low level.

This poor excuse of a gym has made me realize there is a reason why we have alternatives. Don't waste your money. I should have known this privately run “health club/gym” was too good to be true. First of all, it is run by a Moody, Self-Involved, Deceiving, and Favoring Manager. This guy in no way treats everyone equal, is unprofessional, very DECIEVING (can look you in the eye and lie to your face like a dirty politician) and has no managing background whatsoever. This clearly isn’t the job for him. Secondly, their classes are more geared towards his own interests and those of his favored members then those of all his members…AND their facilities are too small, tightly packed and poorly laid out. Thirdly, they don’t even have enough equipment. I could go on and on…they do have some great staff don’t get me wrong, but Shit rolls Down Hill !! True enough.

Last Dec they were starting up and myself and a friend went down to visit the place. He (the Manager) had big plans, inspired us, we thought we’d take part in its beginning so we signed up EVEN tho construction wasn’t near finished. The first couple of months were bad business. Delays Delays Delays!..delays beyond what was reasonable. He hands us this piece of paper to fill out two weeks later and sign and says “no need to read it , its only for insurance purposes and to get your info to put in the computers since our system isn’t up and running yet” This after charming us up with compliments, false promises and completely deceiving us and successfully gaining our trust to get a signature. By this point we thought we could trust him, so we just signed up and agreed to pay month to month. We told the guy we were leaving in May. Months go on, service sucks, classes keep getting moved around or cancelled without notice, Manager finds new favorite clients...I could care less but he’s so obvious and gay about it. Gym equipment delays and more delays, gym was never the way it was promised 5 months later..so we had enough and left. Sounds fair right…well, that’s what I thought..

10 months later I get a call from a Collections agency saying I owe the remaining of year membership!!! And continue to get harassing calls, and these people are not nice about it! What year membership!! You deceived us, we gave you a deadline (MAY) and you blatantly deceived us. Great morals pal. Good for you, you gotta be proud. You’re only prodding us now because you’re business sucks and you are probably going under!! I say Good!!! The sooner you go under, the better! and the less people you will deceive and take advantage of. You have shitty morals buddy, thanks for taking advantage. BEWARE!

Pissed off x-member who lost all respect for this poor excuse of a gym.
