Body XChange Fitness Spa / Agressive and unfair collections & contracts policies
My wife signed up for a 3 year membership with the understanding that it would not be a problem to cancel the contract if she stopped commuting to Bakersfield or we had a baby. After using the gyms for 1 year both happened and she is now a stay-at-home mother. In March I communicated with Body XChange about settling the account. They wanted me to pay $400 to bring it current and cancel it. We had just had a baby and did not have the money at that time. Soon a credit agency was billing us for this amount. I paid it. Now, the credit agency is billing us for almost $2, 000 for the remainder of the contract plus interest. Body XChange claims we missed the window to deal with them and now must deal with the collection agency and pay the full amount. I am disgusted at the way this company has refused to be reasonable when they claimed to be so flexible when she signed the contract.
They expect us to pay them $2, 000 for absolutely nothing. We cannot afford it and feel screwed over by their aggressive, take-no-prisoners policies. They have converted happy customers into angry detractors.
