24 Hour Fitness Complaint - 24 Hour Fitness Rips Off Consumers And Which Way That They Can!
ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA -- After being a member of 24hr fitness for around nine years, I thought that they would consider my business and take care of a good customer due to them closing down the Active Club that I was using. The reason that they closed down my active club was so that they could build a brand new Sports Club right next to it. I made a call to their customer service number and they were not willing to give me any type of a deal on upgrading to the new club. I then went to the gym and talked to their manager, the manager was not willing to give me a deal either. They were basically charging me the same rate as a new customer, with the exception of saving me one dolllar in comparison to a new customer. I could not believe that they would not consider my long term business with them and that they would not give me a discount on upgrading to the new gym. I no option but to cancel my membership.
I was looking at my checking account through online banking and I noticed that 24 hr Fitness had charged me $29.00 for the next month of dues three days before I had cancelled my membership. I called customer service and complained to them, but they said that there was nothing that they could do to get me a refund. When I first enrolled with them, I paid first month dues, and last month dues. I could not believe that they will not give me a refund of the dues that were charged three days prior to me cancelling my membership with them. Unfortunately, I have a membership with them for the next two months in which I will not use. Any other legitimate company would refund a consumer the money that 24 hr refuses to refund to me.
I advise any person who is considering a membership with 24 hr fitness to look around at other clubs. For example Ballys and LaFitness. Both of these other clubs charge a lot less for their memberships and they would be willing to help out a customer that was displaced due to a gym closing down.
