This is an internet scam runned by Cali Sky (an alias, not real name) and her boyfriend Tim Estes (real name). With the fitness scam they require payment in advance by the client and trainers wishing their services a fee also. When you challange their scam they harass you with intimidating phone calls and various other threats. Their MO is to make it your fault, the trainers fault, or the economy. No one gets paid except them.

They have soo many fake names. Alan Prior is a fictious name that they use to register a website. Here are some others:
Jennifer Holderman
Michael Singleton
Derek Jiles
Jacquie Thomas
Anthony Rialto

The Fitness scam is offering in home personal training for close to nothing. But it requires a full payment for the package. They were known as National Fitness Trainers aka The Motivators Network until they had too many pissed off people after them. They disappeared for a few years then I just found them as teamfitnessamerica with TONS of free press releases and classifieds postings. Haven't seen any reports on anybody getting caught up in the new scam yet. Start up your Google seraches for these terms.

To get a picture of this thief you could have gone here:

But as of yesterday 7-22-09 she deleted it just like her website...

But because she has too many lies to cover she forgot about this site (probably lost the login/password)

so now you have a face to go with it.
It is doubtful that "Cali Sky" is her real name, her real name probably has a nice wrap sheet to go with it.

Here are some other ripoff report complaints on the same person:

Ex Employee's View/Contractor

AUTHOR: JohnG - (United States of America)

Firstly, I would like to say that the personal trainers have had nothing to do with the Fitness Motivators scam. I saw their advertisement for personal trainers, and I contacted them and got the job.  It was around 2005; I left about a year and a half, after they stopped paying my vouchers.   At first I was getting paid correctly, then it stopped all of a sudden. I kept requesting to be paid but was never given the money that I was due.  

The Clients never paid us; they paid for service in advance to the company through credit card. The trainers were paid after  they sent off their Client Session Sign Off Sheets.  My clients started telling me that they were being doubled charged for services, and National Home Trainers refused to give them a refund.  That was the beginning of the end for me.  But I just wanted it to be known that the trainers were owed money and duped also.  The trainers are regular folks who needed a job and did work but was never paid, and the clients paid and never received training. 

This didn't happened to all clients, nor did it happened to all trainers.  I believe the people who ran the company simply did not know how to run a personal training businesss.  They were supposed to pay themselves after sessions were given, but they were overstretched; they had too many clients in too many places, and they had no idea how to pay bills.  I believe they never put the unclaimed service funds into abeyance until service was rendered.  They just spent it like drunken sailors as soon as it arrived.  So when clients dropped out and requested the money was gone. This, I believe started their spiral. They are criminals and criminally dumb.

Oh brother. Hope you are wrong

AUTHOR: tired husband - (United States of America)

We just started using this company... they sent out a guy who arrived promptly on time, was very professional, etc, and there was no indication this was any sort of scam.

So I guess we will see. To date (only a couple days into this...) it had seemed totally legit (two sessions so far). But then now today they called my wife on the phone and really harassed her about the fact that she had not yet selected and paid for any particular plan.Apparently they have several options depending on how much personal training you want. Anyway, my wife opted for some plan but then when she finished talking to them on the phone, she was so upset by how they had "cursed her out" (to quote her), that she now wants to cancel, so now I am stuck with trying to undo that situation.

I don't think they have an excuse for giving her a hard time when they were the ones who called to arrange the first two personal trainer sessions (knowing that they had not yet been paid yet) and they did not rather simply put the sessions on hold pending payment.

It is clear the boss person actually said to my wife "you are a pain in the a*s" and a variety of other demeaning things.

So definitely they need some customer relations training. But the actual personal trainer they sent to our house seems completely competent.

Alan Prior

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

Alan Prior is not a ficticious name they used to register a website. His full name is Alan Earl Prior II, his birthdate is October 12, 1982 and he is a 2000 graduate of J.J. Pearce High School in Richardson, TX. His cohort is Christy Lee Ullman whose birthday is July 7, 1974 and is a 1992 graduate of Pottsgrove (PA) High School. I would guess that Cali Sky is an alias used by Christy. She also may be using Alan's name.
