Atlas Fitness Ben Howard Owes Employees & Clients money, Refuses to return calls & Lies to your face when you show up at his place of employment Atlanta Georgia
Atlas fitness is a personal training company that employed me when I worked at Workout Anytime in Buckhead. The CEO, Ben Howard, along with his Sales manager, Neal Smith, had been kicked out of the gym in June 2013 for failure to meet financial obligations. Since then Ben has failed to pay several of his employees, including myself for 75 unpaid training sessions, while also leaving 100's of client purchased sessions unused and un-reimbursed.
It stands to reason, as Ben and Neal both now work for Bodyplex in Cumming, GA that Atlas Fitness has gone under, or at least become unprofitable. I've had many complaints of unreturned phone calls from training clients who were looking for reimbursement after they were left with no where to train once Atlas Fitness (and it's employees) were banned from Workout Anytime.
Personally, I had to actually go to Bodyplex in Cumming just to get a response from Ben regarding the hundreds of dollars he/Atlas Fitness owe me. Of course it was just more lies, like "I have nothing to do with payroll", and "I don't sign off on checks" despite the fact that his signature is on every bank drawn check (not a payroll check, but a regular business account had written check). And my favorite, "I'll submit this to payroll and you'll be paid next week."
Of course I wasn't and he again refused to return messages.
Be warned, Atlas Fitness and/or Ben Howard will not uphold financial obligations to anyone, and will lie about it to your face.
