Gold's Gym International, Inc Complaint - Do Not Join Gold's Gym
AUSTIN, TEXAS -- If you take even 5 minutes to research, you will find plenty of reason to stay away from Gold's. However, I know that you want to work out, they're convenient to your house or work and there really aren't any other convenient options. I just cannot say strongly enough DON'T DO IT. You will get screwed. Not only is it nearly impossible to ever cancel, other tactics they use is finding something wrong with your contract so they can charge you more or extend your contract, or putting "duplicate" charges through on your account. You'll also pay first and last month when you join but you'll never get that last month back...it's just a hidden registration fee.
Right now, I have been fighting Gold's for 6 months. They increased my fee 6 months into a 12 month contract and extended my contract by a year and a half! They will not, probably cannot, provide me anything that shows why or how those changes happened, nor that I ever agreed to them!
Just don't join. Even if it weren't for the scam they run with fees and cancellation, they don't keep their machines maintained, they tout their child care but don't staff adequately, and the people you get to actually talk to face to face aren't very knowledgeable nor able to help you with anything. It is just not worth it.
