World Gym - Maryland, Waldorf / Membership mishandling

Gn
Apr 5, 2016

I cancelled my membership with the Word Gym in Waldorf, MD in December 2014. I did it in person, just like they asked, and also called to let them know. I was told that info would be passed along. I didn't hear back from them until the next Feb., when their billing department contacted me about past due accounts. I reiterated to them that I cancelled my account. I got an apology and an assurance it would be straightened out. Now, in April of 2016, I am contacted by a collections agency. World Gym had referred me and has continued to bill me for all months since then. When I called this time...

World Gym - Georgia, Fayetteville / Contract Dispute

Je
Apr 22, 2011

Back in January of this year (2011), I joined a gym called Maximum Output. After receiving an error in billing, I called M.O to see what was going on only to have the woman answer World Gym. I said excuse me? And she went on to say that M.O is now World Gym. I do not know what has happened since I've joined the gym but either World Gym has bought out M.O. or they went out of business and World Gym took over, I am not sure. I never received a letter, phone call or e-mail about this which is my first frustration. 2 weeks later after having that error cleared up, I called up there and spoke...

World Gym - New Mexico / Continued Harrassment

Br

I signed up for a 5 month membership with World Gym, had everything corrected on the contract at the time of signing that it indeed was ONLY a 5 month contract as I was planning on moving out of state and did not have any need for it being longer than that. Well, wouldn't you know it I have had nothing BUT issues with ASF International. I have been informed twice now that I did indeed fulfill my contract, because, the contract states Clearly that I Am Done, even with an e-mail from ASF "Team" stating that continued Auto-Charges would be stopped. Well, 7 days later I recieved an e-mail...

World Gym / Harassment

Ss

Everyone who has been ripped off by World Gym and is being harassed READ THIS!! Don't even think on going to World Gym Chapel Hill, Akron. Oh. They are going to jump into you and tell you so many lie, that you may trust. These guys promise what they can't deliver. This gym uses the pushy approach to selling memberships. At the time, I was not ready to join, was convinced by the nice sales guy that if I did not want to keep membership, I could cancel within five days. I cancelled the membership within five days and was told that I would receive refund within the next 30 days. I have...

World Gym - Arkansas, Fayetteville / Membership

Cy

I spoke to a World Gym rep at a local health fair. I wanted a membership where I paid month by month, in cash. I had previously been scammed by another gym that assured me I could have month by month service, so I should have been more wary. The rep assured me that they would let me pay when I went in to work out, so I signed a one year contract. I travel a lot and was unable to make it in the first couple months. Then my debit card was re-newed and the security number and expiration date on it changed. all of a sudden I get a letter from their billing agency, telling me that I am past due on...

World Gym - Connecticut, Norwalk / Scam and cheating

Li

I enrolled World Gym over a year ago but when my contract was up I proceed to cancel my membership, I called them to ask them what to do but when I went to drop off the letter of cancellation, the guy at customer service, told me I was few weeks late and the contact already has renewed, which I did not understand because he asked me my name and last name the first time I spoke with him and he told me I could just drop off the letter without any problems. I was really upset me, I showed him my contract and explained him that in my contract did not say anything about renewing my membership...

World Gym - Michigan, Shelby / contract

Pa

received a voice mail this week stating I had won 2-2year memberships. when i returned the call i was told to stop in and pick up my passes. I went in and they tricked me into signing a contact and they charged me $298. I called their corperate number to get a refund they told me I had 72 hours to retract on contract. I would need to go to the location I signed at to do so. When i went back and talked to the manager he would not give me a refund. I will be following up with their corporate on Monday and with my Credit Card Company.

World Gym / They tried to charge for classes that were free

Va

Desert hot springs, ca world gym has boxing to members as a free class. Recently in 7-08, via owner, tried to now charge $5.00 a head. Members complained, so now they will cut the class days down. Greed. The same owner I’m told also owns the LA QUINTA, CA. world’s gym, with record members. They just got greedy in this small town that is isolated from drawing gym members from other areas. Their staff is great, members don’t like this kind of ethics. When you sign up contract, and get a free class, don’t charge or change peoples contract. People brought their contracts to show if necessary-no where is this $5.00 there!!!
