In reality, their business model is absolutely pathetic and it seems their mission is to rip off unsuspecting customers. During their sales pitch (which is reminiscent of a really bad used car dealer experience) they boast a well educated, professional, seasoned, experienced and certified staff of personal trainers providing a structured training regimen developed by Body of Change at competitive prices. Their supposed curriculum is rigorous and is strictly adhered to by their trainers. After talking to a number of trainers it seems this is absolutely false. There is no training, no curriculum, no "Body of Change" program, no regimen -- absolutely no guidelines. If you can fog a mirror you can be a trainer at LA Fitness. Sessions are 1/2 hour long and average approx. $59/session (that's $118/hr) or roughly twice the national average. Not so competitive. Client's results speak volumes. No physical changes or improvements reported but a lot of disenchanted and pissed off people. Their trainers even get ripped off as they are making $6.00 per training session while LA Fitness collects $59.00. No wonder their trainer turnover is so high.
I am surprised no one has died while working with a trainer at LA Fitness and I'm appalled that their employees, x-employees and clients have not filed a class action suit against a company that flagrantly lies about their offering(s).
