Don't join 24 Hour Fitness in Arcadia, California unless you like over-amped rap and hip hop music! Your iPod won't help you. Complaining to management won't help you. If your music taste is more mainstream, you are not their target patron... neither am I.

    I totally agree that the loud music that is totally inappropriate for our community. I don't know who selects the music, but it stinks. I don't appreciate the rap, hip-hop tone and what it represents.

    I gotta say the sales membership team is really shady. Of course - they're on commission - and all 24 hour fitness sales people are shady in general, but this Arcadia branch takes "shadiness" to a whole new level. When you're working on commission, don't make it so obvious. I've been a member at two other locations - both in Northern California - and they actually engage themselves with the customers. They seem to actually CARE about the customer. These Arcadia sales reps don't really care about you and why you are looking into membership. They are just straight up knifing and self-indulgent, and wanna rack up that commission. Whenever you mention something, they talk about something else that has to do with buying/extending membership. Sometimes, I wanna ask them "Did you even listen to what I JUST said?" I talk about point A...they go off to point Z. They really need to change something, because over time, they'll lose customers. Sure, it's thriving now, but the point of a true business is to maintain brand reputation and consistently remain successful over a long period of time...

    I agree that most sales people are not stening to what the customer wants or needs but sees people who come into the gym as potential sales. They do, I don't. There are very good people working in the fitness industry, it's sad that 24 hour fitness doesn't get a clue about how much time and energy they put into training their sales staff and then they don't pay them enough to survive so they are desparate to make commissions. The reason that sales people are like that is because 24 hour fitness only pays $8.00 per hour and you have to hit a target number to "earn" the $8.00 they let you earn and then take it back when you "break draw" or basically sell more than the $8.00 per hr. Almost 100% of the sales staff do not make it past the first couple months because they can't earn enough money. Why? Because it is almost impossible to "break the draw amount" that they expect you to sell verses what you "earn". The carrot is so far out of reach that most people do not ever get paid more than their $8.00 per hr salary. If and when you ever earn enough to collect the commissions on the sales you did, it isn't enough and the following month, the first day of every month you start over again and have to find enough people to sell to. They say we don't work hard enough but the truth is that the company makes it almost impossible to sell enough to get that sales check they promise is there. Disgusted, most sales people quit. What a shame this company doesn't get it. They have created the ambulance chasing sales people that work for them.

    Lifetime fitness has the same loud music corporate policy. They have sensors in the gym that actually turn up the music based on ambient background noise. They refuse to turn the music down. I find the loud music damaging to my hearing, but they want to play their commercials as loud as possible.

    And? Open your own gym and play music you like. I bet you all the money in Bank Of America someone will jump on the internet to complain about your choice of music.
