Gold's Gym International, Inc Complaint - Gold's Gym Contract - Be Wary
SPOKANE, WASHINGTON -- I had joined several gyms in the past. Of the ones I joined (Gold's, 24-hour Fitness), Gold's gym will suck you into a years contract without being giving or delaying contracts for any reasons, whether moving or financial problems to family problems. My intentions were go go back! Not now!
I had some family problems, involving my daughter, which she cost me a bundle. I asked for a waiver till I could get control of my home situations and financial. My family comes first. . .They wouldn't. I had to forgot about the contract and concentrated on my daughter. A year and half later, they came after me via "collection agency", which I have now have paid off to them instead of my credit ruined as one writer also stated (Posted By: BlueBenz on 5/23/2004 & littlebit2 on 01/22/2005)!!!
I learned about their contracts and will never get sucked up again. TAKE HEED BEFORE SIGNING AND JOINING THEIR OR ANY GYM. They don't even delay the contract so you can get matters under handle, they DO NOT care about "you" and your health physically or mentally.
I suggest joining a gym who does a month-to-month basis as 24-Hour Fitness. They sit down and explain their contract with you. If you move, as some people here posted, then you can just move, no contract to bind to. Their facilities are much nicer, more variety of exercise equipment and quality of each machine so they are not all tied up and have to wait. Gold's Gym staff stated that why their membership is cheaper is due to NOT having the extras such as a pool/Jacuzzi, etc. 24-Hour, I paid less and they have much more to offer than Gold's Gym along with being open 24-hours a day facility.
I will never step my foot into Gold's Gym again!!!
