Worst experience ever! They lied to us about the terms of our membership. The salesperson told us we would not be charged if we cancelled in the first six months and showed us the notes he had written on our account. When we questioned that it differed from the contract he told us the manager would override the contract if the notes were in our account. We believed him, never thought a company would be so desperate that it would need to resort to this kind of sales. As a grown adult it is disgraceful that the young sales people are taught to lie to people.
They have a complete scam going on to make it impossible to process a cancelation that involves sending an email which is replied to with a message your membership cancelation request is being processed but does not contain the a confirmation number. When you call the 800 number, and if you can get through, it took us 16 tries, they tell you they can not provide a confirmation over the phone you have to email back to them and request the confirmation number …. which never comes.
When we spoke to the manager at the

she was the rudest person I've ever encountered. All she did was yell the same answer back at us, "You signed a contract. That's what you did." I think she was drunk as she was slurring her words. She refused to tell us the name of either the owner or her supervisor. She actually told us to google it if we wanted to know. It wasn't easy to locate, I finally found it on the Better Business Bureau site where I found dozens of complaints about this

Why did we decide to cancel? The facility itself is dirty and mismanaged. The equipment is often broken. The workout areas are overcrowd most of the time. No one, including the so called personal trainers, wipes down the equipment. The mats, fitness balls and other individual items are filthy. It all looks very shiny at first glance but when you are actually there working out you see how gross it is. The free orientation is nothing more than a sales pitch. You are not taught how to use any of the equipment. If you want that you have to pay for a personal trainer.
They have it all figured out about how to misrepresent what they are selling you and make it nearly impossible to cancel if you choice to. It's shameful that they have a business model set up to charge people who are not receiving anything for their money.

You sign up and they give you a magnetic card. The facility is available 24/7 and you card yourself in and stay for as long as you want. They have got a fairly good range of equipment. However, sometimes when you go in, there isn’t anybody there that’s actually their employee; just the members are there, so you

’t have that much contact with them on a personal basis, it’s just the sign you up and that and then give you the card that’s the end of it. Otherwise, they are easy to deal with, they are clean, and they keep everything in a really good shape.

I joined Gold's

0n 8/21/14 and paid for $478.00 up front for personal training. They were a week late getting me scheduled and then the trainer I got told me it was her last day, so I would be contacted by another trainer and would have to start over with them. No one called. I talked with two managers and several staff members. At least 6 personal visits to discuss and numerous calls. After 5 weeks they were still unable to fulfill their end of the contract and get me a trainer. They apologized and asked for another

which I agreed to. Again they were unable to fulfill their end of the agreement. I then asked for a refund. They told me they did not do refunds. I also called the corporate office and they were not helpful either. They offered to give me two months free, 2 $60.00 value to make up for the $478.00 they took for a service they never provided.
I am a very dissatisfied customer of

and am very unhappy with their corporate office as well.

They have been around for a long time and they are very good. They are very impressive. They offer a full service athletic, health and wellness club. It has sports equipment, two swimming pools and one is Olympic size pool, a total remodelled facility with almost all brand new machines. It also has exercise classes for the young and old. It’s a full service with a well established club.

They have very impressive price. They are not expensive for what they offer. However there are a few things in the club that they can improve like bigger towels. They send you newsletter, give you updates and give you printed letters. They always

We love everything and they have the best childcare of all the gyms in the area. They have very friendly staff. The childcare is top notch. They actually care about the children. They take care of the children and they play with the children. They don't just sit the kids there and put somebody in the way to watch them. All the staff knows the kiddos by name and they know the parents. It's a very family friendly environment.

It's not excellent but it's good. The facility is a little bit older. We had a lot of problems in the summer because we had no air conditioning, but they had resolved that issue. It is kind of hard to get things done out there like things that really need to be done to keep the facility in good condition. However, we have a person who leads our exercise who is very good. We do group exercises, Silver Sneakers type which are designed for seniors, and our person is quite good. My health insurance pays for it so obviously it's good. They are not really inexpensive but they are pretty decent value. They communicate very often by email so we know when the class is canceled because of weather or something like that.
