Regretting ever signing up at the Lafayette, IN Curves
I signed up to be a member at the Lafayette Curves in April. The woman signing me up clearly stated to me two options available to me on that day regarding entrollement. One option was to sign up for the $30 for 30 days. The second option was $30 plus a reduced enrollment fee for $49. If not happy after the first 30 days, you will receive the enrollment fee but not the $30.
This was false!! The owner stated that once you sign the contract you have three days to change your mind and will not refund anything. It is a much wiser choice to sign on to the “Y” for the variety of exercise classes that you get for you money. Curves quickly bored me, and I didn’t feel like I was exercising to my potential. It is the same machines and routine each day, BORING! You have 30 seconds on each machine and that is ridiculous. Buyer be aware before joining Curves.
My wife joined Curves in Nov of 2008 with the good intentions of losing weight and excercising with their...
Why is it that Curves International does not stand by their franchises? I mean, after all, aren't they getting a cut from each franchise? We just lost our franchise and they basically won't do anything about it...that's over 330 members without a home. Grant you, they can go to another location (although most are far from their home base), but you would think they would get to the bottom of the previous owners and find out what happened. After all, they are making money off each franchise and it's their good name that is being dragged through the mud. Stand by your members and get to the bottom of all franchise problems!
I joined up with curves because i thought it would be a great way of shedding a few kilos. I enjoyed it but...

I been going to exercise at curves for about 5 yrs. Last yr and this yr (just starting ) is the worst. This is a mess and nobody cares if you exercise or not. The last 2 wks no one has open in the am. I have a medical problem and need to workout 5 days a wk. No notice is posted as to why not open so you sit outside and wait and still no show I left at 8:30a.m. I was told to canel, I need to give in writing a 30 day notice, well what do we get when no one shows up. I'm paying for a servvice I can't use. I'm not the only one, but I refuse to do nothing. I'm done. This don't work for me.
Many people have noted on this site that Curves takes their membership money and then keeps zapping their...
The owner of Curves, Franchise, in Sacramento, CA exists only to collect dollars from desperate "fatties." I enrolled in the program, read the contract, and foolishly made a commitment for 12 months. Further, I authorized automatic payments from my bank account each month.
My issue is noncompliance with the contract by owner. Albeit it is stated above not to specify contract information, breach of contract is the issue.
There are 2-3 pages to the contract and the one section that made some impression on me was the need to have a physician's verification to enroll. While I mentioned some physical problems, the individual who reviewed the contract with me stated that it was okay to proceed with acceptance of the contract w/o medical documentation. As it turned out, I became ill during a workout session, was asked to "call it quits for the day", see my physician to see cause of wheezing and shortness of breath. Following an exam by my physician, I was asked not to continue with the program.
The above information was received by the owner of Curves in a very indignant fashion when I stated I should be refunded the start up fee since they did not insist upon a medical release as required in the contract. I advised the owner that the individual, a young student, simply took my word that I was physically fit and I started the program two days later. In backtracking some, when the owner learned that I needed to stop the program, she stated fine but you have to sign this, a small sheet of paper that she swept from my hands when learning that I wanted a refund. When I pursued the conversation by asking her for a copy of the contract where they were negligent, she refused stating that I signed the contract and they really didn't need medical approval. Her very unprofessional manner included a statement, "we did enough for you(?)" I'm truly puzzled by that statement, the short time I participated was work on my part w/o much guidance. The "trainers" were somewhat laid back in their role.
Curves is a complete rip off. I was promised that curves would be enough of a workout for me because of their new "Curves Smart" program that stepped up the workout. I have been on that program for 5 months and have seen no results. Half the time the system is down and does not work, even when it does it is a joke.
I filed a complaint with the owner, manager, and corp. They tell me "Curves is not for everyone." This was not in their sales pitch prior to me signing a year contract that they now REFUSE to let me out of.
I was recently hired at Curves at the Beverlywood location as a fitness motivator trainee after working for several years as a paralegal/legal assistant. In addition to working the front desk, I would help the ladies with their workout so they could reach their maximum potential.
After the initial interview where I truthfully admitted I had no experience in this field, I was advised I would be trained which I thought was terrific because I had no idea how the circuit worked.
Well, imagine my surprise that after only two days I was fired. Either (1) the manager had an ego problem; (2) the owner had no idea I was hired (I never even met her!) or (3) my age (I'm 54) and they wanted someone younger!
Well, excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me! The majority of the women who attend Curves are about my age and even older and one would think they would like seeing an older person at the front desk AND working the circuit. But nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
Customer service at Curves Beverlywood -- non-existent!
I am a former manager of Curves under the ownership of Greg and Cindee Snow located in Pace and Milton Florida. I have had many troubles cashing paychecks due to closed accounts and also getting paid for the due wages earned. I resigned in Feb. of 2009 still being owed three pay-periods worth of paychecks. I was paid one of the three two full months later. The owner refuses to answer my calls and I have still yet to see the other two paychecks. Anyone who works for this company beware- business practices under this company are shady with customers and employees. I am also not the only one to have these troubles- at the time that I quit, there were two other employees having the same troubles. We have also heard of other former employees having trouble with their paychecks bouncing and not getting paid on time or in the due wages earned.
I was hired at Curves and in 2 days was given a key and ran the gym by myself by day 4.I was well like by all the members and even had some request to have me do all their 1st few work outs.Well after being there 3 weeks I found out I was pregnant.I waited to tell anyone at work and in my family till after my 1st ultrasound to make sure all was ok.Well after the ultrasound I told my manager about the baby, she was excited and said I would have no probs continuing my job.I was going to tell the owner the next week when she came in.Well b4 I could see her I had a 2nd ultrasound and was told the baby had died.The dr told me on a Tuesday and gave me a note for work for the rest of the week due to the fact they had to remove the baby.I took the note straight in to work and a few hours later the owner left6 a message on my phone saying"I did not know you were pregnant and this is not going to work out".So all in one day I lost my baby and my job.I was so happy to get a job with curves since they claimed to be a christian company, but it turns out they are not.I still have the message on my phone and have spoke to lawyers and have been told the dep of labor will love to get ahold of this so I am going to let them.I have no respect for curves for women anymore.

This is a letter I sent to the company because of strange practices I'd encountered..anyone out there with similar experiences? I was so shocked because it seemed (here's to advertising) so open and friendly...not.
Hi. I have been to two places here in brooklyn, one on Norman Avenue and one on Grand ave, in attempts to try out the club and see if it worked for me and a friend. I don't know if it's because I'm in shape (that's honestly the impression I was feeling) that they seem to discourage me at all from joining or if it's some sort of "secret society" but they weren't at all interested in trying to work with me. What is this about?
I called ahead on the second one just to ask and make sure it wasn't as shadey as the first and it seemed nice enough when the lady on the phone said if I came in she would give me a free week pass. I asked if there was a good time and she just said they were closed from 1-3 and then I asked when they were closed and she said 8. So I showed up at seven and told the girl at the counter (apparently a different person) that my friend was running late but I could go ahead and she started in with talking about how I needed a certain amount of time to do everything (45 min...I had an hour, by the way) and throwing various other excuses my way as to why I couldn't do it then (this had happened in pretty much the same way at the first club as well). She apparently wasn't interested in keeping my business. Is this common with your clubs? My friend and I really were looking forward to this kind of workout as we liked the first time we tried it and just wanted a period of time to see if it worked for us in our schedules. However, it seems like none of your clubs have a work - or even business - ethic. I don't want to waste my time on bad employees or shabby business and I generally report directly to consumers' unions when meeting with bad business practices, as I don't want other people to have to endure stupidity either, but I wanted to check with the corporation first to see if these were simply uncompliant clubs (they are franchises). Please feel free to write at your leisure, as I will wait a few days before reporting to my normal consumer agencies. Thank you.
Honestly what's up? These people act so strange like they're selling drugs behind the scenes or something...why discourage people from paying for your business?

I signed a 1 year agreement in September 2003. I went to close my bank account 7/30/2007, and found out that the company has been deducting the monthly dues from my account every month since. At the end of my contract, the manager called me to see if I would be renewing, and I told her NO. She did not inform me that I must come in and put the cancellation in writing. It has now been almost 3 years since the END of my 1 year contract, and they have deducted over $1400 from my account since September 2004. They now tell me I'm SOL. This company is NOT Christian based as it claims, but instead screw out of your hard earned money!!
