LA Boxing / Scam and cheating
Do not sign a contract with LA Boxing. In may 2008 they changed all there class times and could no longer attend class but was still using the treadmill. From June to July once to twice a week they would shut down in the middle of the day (1pm to 3pm) unannounced and when they wwere suppost to be open. I called the mgr. several times to complain and he always had a eacuss to why he abruptly closed for a few hours. Such as : went out to eat, ran errands, etc. After 6 weeks of working around there schedule i asked to cancel my membership. Jon said no problem. I called the next day an he said he had taken care of it. my membership had been terminated. I asked if i could have a refund for Julys dues(I pd on july 9th and this was the 10th) he told me no. so i asked if i could use the rest of my month. he told me no again. The first of sept. i received a bill stating i owed for Aug. and Sept. I tried calling ASF but there system was down and told me to call back later. So i called the gym and jon assured me he had taken care of the cancellation but he would check on everything. Now I'm trying to get hold of Jon to make sure that everything had been taken care of but he answer the phone or return my calls and after getting another bill i go to LA Boxing to see whats going on. Jon informs me that 'he didn't know he did not have the authority to terminate anyones membership'. I then filled out a cancellation form and he gave the email and phone # for the general mgr, Vladimir. I emailed and called him/ left messages for him everyday for 2weeks. I finally got a hold of him and told him the situation and that i want to cancel the membership. He told me things had changed and they were now following the schedule and he wanted to meet with me. i showed up for the meeting at the gym but he did not. I called to see what was going on and he wanted me to wait another 30 min. i informed him i was on my lunch break and need to get back to work. he said he would call to reschedule but never did. since then they will not return my calls and ASF told me that the gym were i signed up at is the only place to terminate my membership. It is now 6 mo later and i am taking them to small claims court. WARNING NEVER SIGN A CONTRACT TO LA BOXING, they will screw you!!!
