ED Magedson – Founder
24 Hour FitnessCarlsbad, California USA
24 Hour Fitness 9 year member of 24 hour fitness All Club membership; denied access to San Ramon and Pleasanton clubs Carlsbad California
I started as a member of 24 Fitness 9 years ago and paid for the initiation fee (around $400) plus the monthly membership fee of aboug $50-60 per month. I got the highest possible membership because i wanted to be able to have access to all the clubs if I was traveling or if I moved. Then about 2-3 years later, they had a deal where if you paid $2400 once, you only pay $24 a year for the same membership. So I took them up on that offer. Then I started working out in San Ramon area and now live in Dublin/Pleasanton. The two clubs closest to me are the big, really nice ones, called Ultra or Super or something. I went once or twice and then once when I went in they told me that I didnt' have access to those clubs. I just sort of gave up, then I called in a year or so ago when I had to pay my membership fee. I was connected to a call center and they said that I had to pay $60 a month if I wanted to upgrade to be able to go to those gyms near my house. They also gave me only a few days for that offer before it expired. I now work for a fitness company where many employees were with 24 Hour Fitness corporate sales and have asked around about this to see if they knew of someone who could help me. To no avail. So I searched the topic and now see that there are many people in the same situation as I am in. It does seem awful that I paid so much upfront twice and now it's pretty much a worthless membership. We also have a Club One nearby...I am tempted to just join them and turn my back on 24 Hour. I knew it would come to that one day - they seem particularly slimy as a corporation.
