24 Hour Fitness Informative - Liars, Manipulators, Cheats, No Customer Service!!! - Annual Membership Renewal
Annual Membership Renewal
I have gone through their humiliating harassment EVERY SINGLE YEAR of my membership since it became 24 Hour Fitness.
Many years ago when they called themselves Family Fitness, I signed a membership contract which included 5 other 'family' members at one flat rate of $96.00 a year. That was a great deal back then. Within a couple of years, they changed over to 24 Hour Fitness and my contract was 'grandfathered' in, so the terms stayed the same. But shortly thereafter, there were renewal issues EVERY SINGLE YEAR which require me to write, call, and speak to foreigners who don't understand what I'm saying, or play dumb.
Each year they bill me except that people are missing from my account. I'm guessing it's in hopes that I will give up the great deal I have and pay their newer expensive and elaborate prices for a new contract, or get so frustrated that I will just give up my membership deal with them altogether. Each year they come up with a new scheme or flat out say that they accidentally closed those memberships and then make me jump through hoops in order to reenstate them, even though they have my full payment in their bank.
This year they unilaterally cancelled all but myself and 1 family member. I asked what happened to the rest of my money that I paid last year, and they just said it will be applied to future payment for the 2 remaining memberships. You see, they are trying every trick in the book to complicate my renewal in order to make me give up, so that they can cancel this wonderful deal of a contract.
I have gone through the same 'games' with them every year, in spite of the fact they guarantee they have corrected the problem and insist that everything will be fine in the future. That's a lie! And they refuse to let me speak to their supervisor or give me any names or phone numbers to reach anyone other than their (Non existent) customer service. It is disgusting how they treat long loyal customers like dirt, apparently due to their greed. They leave you with no recourse or no options if you don't like their lack of service. There's no way to reach anyone else.
What a sham 24 Hour Fitness has become.
