24 Hour Fitness - California, Carlsbad - Raising gym dues

Posted: 2015-09-26 by    Reviewer52306
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I've been a member for nearly 20 years and now my gym dues have been jacked up by 40%. I've asked repeatedly to see a copy of my contract, been told they will send it twice, still waiting.
I signed a contract, negotiated to get a good price. This is not ethical, doesn't seem legal. 24 has absolutely no customer loyalty.
I'd love to join in on any future lawsuits that will surely be coming....

24 Hour Fitness - California, Los Angeles - Life Time Membership

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
In October 2007 I signed a life time membership contract with 24 hour fitness with an initial payment of $600 for the first three years and $29 annual fee starting the 4th year and beyond. I was told the annual fee $29 will not be changed as long as I pay it on time every year to keep my membership alive.
Recently I received a letter from 24 hour fitness to tell me they are increasing my annual fee from $29 to $79. This contradicts what I was told when I was sold the membership in October 2007.
Either the 24 hour fitness person lied about the annual fee of this life time membership...

24 Hour Fitness - Increase of 359% for the year membership for myself, my wife and my daughter.

In 2006 I purchased a 3-year prepaid membership for myself and my daughter. In 2007 I purchased a 3-year prepaid membership for my wife. All 3 contracts expressed the same terms and conditions. Section 3c indicates that a yearly membership due will not increase more than 5% from that current year and that a notice of increase would be sent out each calendar year prior to renewal. The increase for "prepaid membership" was vague. An increase from $29 per year to a $104 yearly due is approximately a 359% increase in one calendar year and is outrageous. 24 Hour fitness has not honored the...

in 2007 paid a large fee with the guarantee that my yearly dues would be 29.00 for life. Have been paying 29.00 a year ever since. Last week received my new bill 109.00 a year.

I want to pay the 29.00 a year that I was promised...

I signed up with $489.81 initial payment for 36 months, then after should be $49 per year.
I was told by the representative that $49/year will be for life and the annual amount will not change forever.
Today, I received a letter from 24 hour fitness that my annual fee will increase to $99/year.
This is 100% increase in annual membership price. This is outrageous!...

24 Hour Fitness - California, Fontana - Dues increase for Lifetime Member

I've got Lifetime Membership from 24 hour fitness on year 2007 for both me and my wife. When I signed the contract, they told me that it is a great promotion, which we will only have to pay $29 per year for rest of our life after I pay for first three years in full. I paid for both me and my wife's due and paid $29 for past a few years. Our dues are September 4th and somehow, they stopped sending me the bill. Fortunately, I did not forget to make payment on time by calling them and visit them. Yesterday, I wanted to make my payment for next year and found out that my dues are $79 per person,...

24 Hour Fitness - California, Folsom - Rate increase

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
Just found out that my next year renewal is increasing over 300%. Asked why when it's been the same since 2006 when I joined all they offered me was to get a copy of my original contract that states they have the right to increase my renewal. Poor customer service and a real ripoff. I can understand a modest increase, 10 maybe even 20%. But 300% and no explanation after 9 years is really just not acceptable especially with the only explanation being that they have a right to increase...

24 Hour Fitness - Membership cancellation issues

The 24 Hour Fitness Club where I was a member for 26 years moved from the building where I joined originally, to what was previously a QFC Grocery store building. This was also a move that put the club another 3 miles further away from my residence down a road that is exceptionally clogged with traffic at workout time.
I tried to cancel my membership IN PERSON at the club. They said that this was not possible. I was required to call into their business center to cancel. After being put on hold for just shy of 20 minutes with the most obnoxious, screeching, hotel lobby type music playing...

24 Hour Fitness - Colorado, Lone Tree - forcing employees with the flu who run the kids club, to work.

I recently brought my children in to the kids club at this 24 hour fitness location . My issueisn't with the poor girl who had the flu and had to consistently expell her bowels. No my issue is with the inconsiderate management who forced this poor girl to stay as she vomitted simply because out of the 20+ employees working there, not one wanted to run the kids club. I came in the next day, she wasn't there to my relief. So I thought. They had her towards what they thought would be a location noone could hear as what appeared to be the manager yelling at this girl, who looked like she was...

24 Hour Fitness - California, Costa Mesa - Membership Termination & Racism

24 Hour Fitness has been my home/ club for over a year now. The members are super friendly and I love helping them out with their training every now and then. I am a personal trainer so I decided to apply for a personal training job at my 24 Hour fitness club. I got the personal training job but ended up living after a month in the position to finish my school. I continue to give the club members free wellness pointers whenever I am training at the gym.

Since my club is predominantly Caucasian with handful of minorities, the fitness manager seems to be fine whenever I have a white...

24 Hour Fitness - Nebraska, Omaha - Membership Cancellation

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
I called the club where my son is a member to cancel his membership as he is moving out of town. The manager gave me the 866 number to call, but said that most people find it easier to come in to the club as the 866 number doesn't work very well. I called the number and, after a 20 minute wait the line went dead. I then made two trips to the club, both times I was told that there was nobody there who was authorized to accept cancellations and I would have to come back. I called the 866 number again, a recording said that they were closed (Saturday, mid-day). What a joke of an organization....

24 Hour Fitness - California, Santee - Equipment Repair Lacking

Posted: 2012-07-18 by    Crosshairz
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
This relatively new 24 Hour Fitness Center is well used and attended. Unfortunately, the regular use of the equipment results in equipment malfunctions and breakdowns - - this is expected. The incredible length of time for the eventual repair(s) to the equipment is rediculous. It took newly two years to get a large mirror that was cracked near a squat rack replaced and almost as long to have a faulty water fountain repaired/replaced! Other equipment repairs also go unattended. The Santee facility has a Smith machine that has been out of service for almost 8 weeks and now a cable machine that has...

24 Hour Fitness - Missouri, Arnold - Rude Staff

I've been going to 24 Hour Fitness off and on for over two years. The reason I'm still there is because I really like the gym itself. However, aside from a couple of the night staff, their day staff and management is horrible! My most recent sign up was a mess. It took me 2-3 weeks just to get my monthly dues to the price we originally agreed upon. And they like to throw in hidden fees. Anytime I called to talk to someone, they were immediately defensive and rude to me. I'm not one to usually complain but I just can't believe these people are still allowed to run this place....

24 Hour Fitness - Texas, Rockwall - Declining value and broken items

It seems that 24 Hour fitness just keeps going downhill! Now they have done away with good quality soap and have resorted to basically taking a shower in what smells like 7-Up soda (GoJo). I go to work (I did) after I work out and could count on smelling ok after a shower with the Dial soap and now the soap doesn't lather up and smells terrible. Way to go 24 hour, another way to cut corners for your members and chase off customers!! When you ask at the counter, you get some kid who could care less and is just there by the hour....

24 Hour Fitness - California, Carlsbad - They Cancelled my Lifetime ($750) Membership

Posted: 2011-11-22 by    SouthernCalifornia
Complaint Rating:  88 % with 8 votes
In 2008, I purchased a life-time membership to 24-hr Fitness for approx. $750. (Which the first 3 years are paid for, and after 3 years, the dues will be $29 per year for life). I only went to the gym two times (twice!), then I moved 30 mins away from the nearest gym, and decided to get my exercise by surfing, running, walking at the beach, etc. I just moved again and called the closest location to find out how much I owe ($29 or $29 times two years, etc.). The employee said, "I have bad news for you. Your membership is cancelled. You only had 3 months to pay the $29 (for the following year, after...

I purchased a set of ear buds at 24 HOUR FITNESS and being that I work out and move around the ear buds would come out of my ear and as a result of having to put and push then into my ear a few too many times it ruptured my ear drum and now I have to go to the VA on 7-28-2011 to get my ear fixed. I have not been able to hear out of my left ear for a month now.
24 HOUR FITNESS sells these ear buds for $20.00 on up and I later went to Walmart and bought a set for $10.00 that go over my ear and stay on the top of my ear and have had no problem with the ones from Walmart that cost half as much.

Here's what happened, all i wanted was to simply work out because im young and i realize that i need to bulk up a little so i started to consider this gym because my friend said it was good, so then i realized how much is cost so i instead used a 7 day free pass so then i told the manager (who happened to be the one helping me that day i wanted to sign up) my story which was i was leaving to texas as a vacation in about a month so i dont want to get a membership and pay for it while i'd be gone and get no use out of it so he gave me 14 days instead which was very considerate, so then i...

24 Hour Fitness - California, Tustin - Multiple Location Closing

I've purchased one of those two year Sport membership deals from Costco. I was very happy as there were many Sport locations around my area. However, it's been a year and they've closed an Express location closest to my house and closed/re-opened two Sports into Super Sports. Now, they send me a letter telling me they will close yet another location that I go to frequently so that they can convert into another Super Sport!

If you look up these locations, they have many negative reviews on Yelp because of "old equipment" and "lack of renovation". 24 Hour's response...

24 Hour Fitness - California, Cupertino - Customer Service

My membership was frozen for unlimited duration on 3/7/10 due to pregnancy at the Cupertino facility. Today (3/27/11) when I went back to Cupertino facility to reactivate my membership, I saw my membership was only valid till July 2011. When I asked about the freeze I was told that Costco membership doesn't qualify for freeze. But when I asked how come somebody was able to process and confirm that my account was frozen, her immediate response has taken me by shock: "You should have read your Costco coupon rules and that is not our fault your account doesn't qualify for freezing and we...
