Could it be that they have been getting similar complaints from disgruntled customers? I ask for the clippers and was told he couldn't give them to me, that I had to complete paperwork and wait for another employee to return from lunch so that he could clip the lock. Its a brilliant model and works out well for the people who actually use the gym - especially those that go every day and just hang out there, since as you said, it would cost much more if they had to fund the entire operation. I always feel good when I finish my workout. I'm putting their name out to every newspaper out there. Most of my family is reluctant to join a gym; if I can get them to go for free a couple of times; maybe the fitness will become addictive for them and they'll want their own gym membership to attend at their convenience. You will not find any juice bars or childcare centers that drive up their costs. Never seen the alarm go off either.
They could have said they'd contact corporate or something. I then called customer service at 844. I gave up after she blamed an employee who was likely hired and trained by her! Is there a clear way marked to cancel your membership? It has been great for me as I was going through grad school and working about 50 hours a week. But your inner skeptic is probably wondering if this deal is really as good as it seems. What a way to get me pumped! There is nothing wrong with a slice or a bagel.
Suddenly I was changing jobs. At that point I was upset that I was misinformed by a staff member, but just decided to wait the rest of the membership out. Voicing a complaint to your local branch is a time waster. But the thing is, you tell me I can ask anyone to show me how to properly use a machine, don't just point to the picture on the machine. Now I see why by reading these reviews.
It didn't bother me because the gentleman that informed me told me in a respectful manner. I proceeded to jog a few minutes more but could not stand the heat and lack of adequate circulation. If you become disabled or move to an area where there are no anytime locations then yes, we'll cancel your contract. It's like saying a rude person is a jackass. They are a rip off. You will almost always make more money if you are inspiring and helping your members be great, rather then using them as a monthly withdrawl device. Planet Fitness clearly states how a person can join the gym, but they fail to tell the customer how to cancel the membership.
It includes a T-shirt, unlimited access to one Planet Fitness club and unlimited access to training. The place is pretty clean but mostly because the members are expected to wipe down the equipment after each use which is good. So that is a con. I was told by staff that was Casey and that the general manager who I did not get to speak with but must know what's going on is Adrian. When I first went in to sign up for a membership, I was given a tour by one of the men at the front desk. I reported the unauthorized charges to my card issuer, and had to cancel the related card. If you want your response to count towards your company rating, you can also leave a comment for this review.
I received an email stating that I could go to two alternate gyms. For many though, the best part about Planet Fitness is the free personal trainer that comes with your membership fee. Some noise is ok but if you're excessive we'll let you know by walking up to you. Clearly they have researched demographics, market and clients to maximize profits. If you are unsure of anything, do not be afraid to ask the gym what it means. Also ask that someone respond confirming that the email was received and the membership was cancelled and you're all set.
If you're not a rude person, you have nothing to worry about. Don't leave until you have all of this plus a copy of your contract in writing, or a statement saying that this will be provided to you by mail within a certain time frame. The problem with Planet Fitness is that each gym is independently owned. I'm limited to building stamina since recovering from past Cancer treatments. One had surgery for 17 stiches latter and another spot frozen recently and other health issues I cannot continue to go now. Beware of any fitness club that will only debit your checking account.
It was humiliating to be seen by so many people wearing only a towel and flip flops. I have to cancel my membership. Ask the manager for a business card - you'll find out they don't have one because there is no website for the location and they don't want to make it easy to contact them. The free weights and machine weights should be more than enough to get you to a healthy, toned, muscled condition. They recently changed to the type of towels u use to wash dishes or wipe down tables at restaurants.
I can't express enough how disgusted and not welcome I felt. We were hesitant at first due to some of the ugly reviews we found online, but glad we checked them out ourselves to form our own opinions. I have been trying to cancel my contract with Planet Fitness for over a year. They went into my account, after I told them I did not want to renew my membership, and I only had 15 dollars in there, so my bank charged 32. I tried to talk to the staff and explain my situation that I am a foreigner and all my bank accounts were based from my country, and I do not have any local bank account in America. . Had the company been honest, I probably would have signed up anyway.
