Bally Total Fitness Complaint - Gross! - Poor maintenence and customer service
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Undoubtedbly, it was my fault for actually signing up to join Bally's. They had the most reasonable prices--but be warned: you get what you pay for. After less than a month of going to their gym, I became more aware and more grossed out. Their gyms are unclean in general (esp. the locker rooms: mold here, watermarks there) and they have poor machine upkeep. I can not count the number of times I've had to sit on a stationary bike and listen to a cacophony of sounds coming from other machines that needed oil or needed to be fixed, period!
I still go to the gym though because I am officially locked into a contract that is impossible to get out of. (I already tried - I even went to the Better Business Bureau). In my opinion, Bally's has not held up their end of the contract. I should have known better. Do not make the same mistake as I did. Once my contract is up, I am running to another cleaner, more well-kept fitness club!
