Paramount Fitness Complaint - Sorry Service - Trying Out The Gym
ATHENS, ALABAMA -- I was in Athens, AL on business and wanted to see what gyms they had in town. The hotel told me Paramount Fitness. I called Paramount Fitness and another place to get some information. The lady at the front desk told me it was $5 for a one day pass to workout at Paramount Fitness. The other gym in town, which is down the road and I would recommend, was free for the first day and then $10. So I, like and idiot, went to Paramount Fitness. When I walked in I told the front desk lady I called and was interested on a one day pass. She said she talked to her boss and it was going to be $10. So she gets her boss and he comes up there, a big wannabe little macho man, and tells me to quit bugging her and to leave. I was in shock, and she said this was not the guy to him. Obviously this guy had me confused with someone else. After a few minutes of him being a jerk I did ask him to step outside since he wanted to be so TOUGH. I would handle this a) like a professional or b) like a man. Of course he proceeded to be a jerk and I left. I tried to call back up there and ask for a manager/owner and he hung up. This guy had some major issues and something was seriously wrong. I went back to my hotel and told them the story. I then went to the other gym and they were extremely nice and I got my workout in and am was very pleased with the service.
So, if you are living near a Paramount Fitness, my experience is to look for another gym. At least the one in Athens, AL had some employees that were very rude. I say if you are in Athens, AL go to the gym right down the road. That is what makes competition so great, companies loose out when they treat people like dirt.
