Steve Dow, Drew Marsh, Matthew Yellon and Justin Fouse are the "owners" of this wonderfully crooked organization. Atlanta Fitness DBA CustomBuilt Personal Training has hired and consistently hires Trainers who do not undergo a background check. This outfit is basically a spinoff of the old Beyond Fitness outfitt that had such acclaim previously. When Ted Sampson, Beyond Fitness's AKA Professional Fitness's owner axed Steve Dow from his corrupt organization it only took a short while for a new business to be formed. Many of the Trainers from the old Beyond fitness company aka Professional fitness company are now employees new creation of Mr. Dow and his "colleagues" at this new organization called Custom Built Personal Training. It appears that the new company Custom Built Personal Training is still up to there old trick in their trade... if one would call it a trade. Over charging clients for sessions, having Trainers log client sessions even when the client had not been trained on that particular day... and still paying the Trainer for that fraudulently stolen session. To top it off, they don't even perform background checks on the people they hire to work in these clubs Nationally... Some of them are felons with criminal records to include drugs offenses, sex offenders/predators... even the big one stealing. I guess you can't teach old dogs new tricks after all. This is truly disgusting considering that many young women and their children work out in these clubs where Custom Built has signed agreements to offer "personal training" to their clients. I bet the training does get very personal! If your wondering how it is that I know so much of this information... I used to work for them in a management position and resigned. So I would know because I was trained by the best to include the wonderful Melissa Stepp. Hopefully the authorities will see this entity for what it truly is... not only a rip off to consumers but a threat to them as well. Perhaps even these club owners/Managers where they operate will wise up as well!!! I know the one in Huntington Beach, CA did! I can believe that someone would place a dollar over the safety of their clients!!!! How disgustingly perfect for them!
