Bally Total Fitness Complaint - Bally's (not so) hidden secret
I've just visited a Bally's in NYC to (maybe) become a member. My wife has a Bally's membership so that's why I wanted to go there as well. In the meeting I had with the sales person I was warned that I should probably avoid the steamroom. Wink, wink. My wife instantly knew what she was talking about, I didn't. When I asked it dawned on me. She (Bally's sales person) joked I would have to be carefull not to drop my soap... She continued to tell us she caught two men just last week having sex. When I asked what they would do against it, she said they couldn't do anything since they're members!!! She also insinuated that whether gay or not I might be harassed.
Mind you I'm from Amsterdam Holland and in Amsterdam I was with a gym which was known to have a big gay population. However in the contract it was said that "anybody engaged in any sexual act will be barred from the gym and their membership will be revoked".
What I don't understand is why they would continue to allow these practises in their gyms without taking any actions!!! Needless to say I'm unsure this a gym I'm willing to join do to the fact that they do not protect their members.
