After relocating to a new area, While I was settling in I called a local fitness center to inquire about a membership. I was told that I needed to come in for any details. When I arived I was greeted very nicely, and then came all the lies. I
was told that the membership can be cancelled at any time, I was told that because I lived a distance from the fitness center that I could pre-enroll to join a new center being built much closer to where I lived. The billing was to start when the new club opened and I started going to the gym several months later.
About a month later I noticed that Anytime Fitness was trying to charge my account for fees, when I called the fitness center they said that they had made a mistake and would not charge anymore unitl the new club opened. At that time
I asked to cancel my membership ( They did say anytime right) so then the manager stated she could not do that but she would call the owner of the club and get back to me. [continued below]....
I never received any call or notice, I called back and was told that they would credit my account. I then asked to cancel my membership for a second time, and it was never done. The billing continued and every time they went into the
account it over drafted my account and cost me bank fees, they also use a third party billing service called ABC Financial.
So when your account at the bank gets hit for overdraft fees then ABC Financial sends you a letter, with more fees threatening collection and placing derogatory info on your credit. I called several more times and went there personally to
cancel my membership.
Mr. Brian S. Patrick handed me back my contract three times and said if you are going to litigate this then go do it, but he would not cancel my contract. This has been a real nightmare, just from a simple membership at a local gym.
Mr Patrick stood there and boasted he had 1200 facilities as he proudly stated in a pompous and demeaning manner, I then challenged Mr. Patrick and told him that Largo Fitness LLC owned two location in this area and were part of a franchise.
Largo Fitness Dba Anytime Fitness is run by petty crooks, they can't cancel a membership upon several requests - in order to bill you the monthly fee of $14.00. This never adds up because after fees and charges etc, ABC financial
debits your account for more than the contracted amount.
I received an email after telling anytime fitness that I was contacting a lawyer.Mr. Brian S. Patrick from Anytime fitness stated in that email that they would cancel the membership if I paid $80.00 and made it seem as if they were doing me a favor. I never used the facilities one time - never , ever. I am out the money the charged my bank account several times, and they add insult to injury by asking for more money.
Stay clear of this place they prey on the consumer and strong arm you into a membership contract promising things they never deliver. I am organizing a class action suit against Anytime Fitness and Largo Fitness, anyone else who may have encountered the same or simular issue please contact me. I have found complaints across the U.S. on this website claiming the same or simular practices. Enough is enough - they must be held accountable.
