Work Out World Complaint - Bad Owner - Fitness Monthly Payment(s)
MIDDLETOWN, NEW JERSEY -- When I signed up with Work Out World I paid $100+ in order to have a reoccurring payment of $32 per month. When I realized I was overpaying quite a bit (after one year) I asked to change my monthly rate to $10 per month as advertised on billboards and other outrageous LOCAL billboard marketing campaigns for this particular franchise location. When I asked to begin paying the "Basic" package of $10 as explained on billboards, they explained I had to pay another $100 in order to have the reoccurring payment of $10 because it was a different package then I signed up with. I explained if I had this "basic" package option from the beginning, I would have purchased that versus this VIP package I am stuck with. They said there was no such "Basic" package one year ago, that it has begun very recently. I explained I do not use the "day care", hence no children, do not use the classes offered and do not go to any other locations. I asked the Work Out World customer service office to make an exception and they communicated with the owner of the franchise. This owner declined, therefore, I am leaving. ALSO 10% of the machines here are ALWAYS being fixed which means you cannot use them. I will be going to retro fitness since Work Out World has screwed up their customer base and will not help transition their old customer base to a fair rate their NEW customer base is entitled to.
