24 Hour Fitness Complaint - Dismiss the best trainer in the facility.
NORTH LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- I have worked out at 24 hour Fitnes center on Clayton and Craig Road, North Las Vegas NV for about 4 months. I was a trainer myself for many years but stopped about 10 years ago to recover from alcoholism and opiate use. Upon buying a lifetime membership and hiring a person trainer I wanted to gain back my health and self esteem. I was assigned a trainer named Peter Bird. We clicked right away and I did my best to copy his moves and correct formats to give that extra "boot up". We worked machines, weights and used a lot of body weight so I had experienced a myriad of moves that worked me out to the max. He developed a lot of his own workout sheets and methods specificaly catering to the clients level and expertise. He does have other businesses, i, e., hair dressing, and karate. He never brought those businesses to his training sessions and unless you knew him "well",you would never expected he was involved in so many aspects of his life. He never brought his other interests to the gym. He develped his own web site to bring the Center more personalized business, not to appear "one up" of the other trainers. I had two 10 session plans to set up and upon completion the center was having a sale on sessions and I signed up for 10 more with this same trainer. The following day the trainer called me and said he was fired. I coudn't believe it and asked him many questins about the circumstanses of the situation. The "boss" didn't really give him a definitive reason. I was thoroughly upset and took my contract for the sessions I had signed on for the previous day and turned it in for my money back. If I couldn't have Pete, I wanted no other trainer. I trusted Pete with my whole body transformation and in a short time we had made milestones. He was thorough, patient, kind and knew exactly what he was talking about. I have a membership at the gym but I will never train with anothe trainer because I've seen them in action (teaching half ass). The manager looks to be about 22 years old and the center needs experience and management skills. I have to wonder how these managers are picked. This kid is way over his head and causing caos instead of having strong leadership quality. I have a membership whic I will continue to use, but I will not encourage other people to join. We pay for perfection and intend to receive it. I am very disappointed with the way this situation has played out.
