Club Manager: Ryan Grappone
He's a scammer. He told his sale reps to bring people, make false promises over the phone, special discounts, etc., but when you come in, they changed their stories.
The club is so dirty and crowded. Do do signed up for the long contract, they will tried to scam you, especially paying by credit/debit cards. Some members already got their personal information leaked out from this club.
Go there a take a look for yourself before signing up.
It was near L.A., can't remember exactly where the branch was, a well-to-do suburb, in 2003. I had just moved there and wanted to join a gym. i couldn't believe how long this guy talked and how many forms there were. Finally I just said, "Hey, I just wanna join a gym. How much per month?" He told me, and it sounded reasonable and yes I did sign -- big mistake. A couple months later I switched jobs, and was headed for Korea. I told the guy I had already paid for the month, but he wouldn't see me much cause I'd be gone soon. When I got back a year later there are all these legal notices for me at my old address, my Mom's place. It's 2010, and they are still bothering my sister. These guys are all over the net with more lawsuits against them than ACORN. They're as dirty as sin, and still they are out there scamming other people every day. The good news is, they cannot touch me cause -- I'm broke. And it will be a cold day in hell before I would pay a bunch of evil blood-sucking thieves like these guys. May they have a nice, comfortable place in hell. (Oh, not really, I'm a Christian, and we're sposed to pray for our enemies. So, okay -- "God BLESS these jerks." Really.)
I have been a member of Crunch Fitness for 4 years. This company was recently purchased by bally's fitness in the past 6 months in this time - i have been robbed TWO times. They doubled billed me one month and did not credit me back - they sent me a voucher for a free month which expired before it even got to me. Not the bigger problem - after paying my regular monthly dues on 1/9/07 as i have every month for the past several years - this comes out of my checking account, btw - they went in and helped themselves to another $80 on the 1/18/07. I have placed btw 9 and 10 calls, sent a fax and a letter. I have been given the run around like u cannot believe. They take messages and say we will call u back. and they don't. They have stolen from me and countless others. When i reported this to the bank, they immediately credited me and told me that 'bally's does this ALL the time'.
