Ladies, do your research. Everything the previous writer here on the ripoff report and all the other reviews about "get fit" and "fitness one" on Dale Mabry in Tampa, FL, are completely accurate.

Icorresponded withSteve, through Match.com. His username was give.me.a.minute. He was supposedly a lawyer who came to town to help his sister get through a divorce. I never met Steve (Steve was most likely Jay) but I have the same story as all the others I've read: "Steve's" sister had incredible results after four months of working out with Jay.

The gym itself is filthy. As the previous person wrote, the touching is inappropriate. I have contract that was advance dated (I guess because of the 3 days to cancel contracts in FL). Jay also signed the last name of Williamson on thecontract. I am not sure what I am going to do with the information I havegathered at this point.

If Mr. Williams was the great trainer he says he is, he would be getting plenty of referrals instead of the false advertising on match.com. Heis a career criminal. If you care to, go to the Hillsborough County Courthouse to view Mr. William's public record information.

#1 Consumer Comment

Jerk!!!

AUTHOR: anonymous - (USA)

I am one of the fortunate ones who did my research on him, I met him online as wel,l and before we could even meet, I found his exstensive arrests.  Ha!!  What a 2 bit loser wanna-be hustler!  I actually composed a text message stating there was no way I'd EVER me an ex-convict, and attached his most recent mugshot along w/ my text.  He was recently arrested on the 7th of this month (July), and posted bond that same day.  I won't be surprised if this guy ended up in silver bracelets real soooon.  What a punk he is!

Owner Arrested today. Also trains at Club Tone on Linebaugh

AUTHOR: Ann215 - (United States of America)

Obviously, Mr. Williams thinks he is above the law. Clearly this is alleged at this time. Copy and paste the following link.

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Really? heres my side, im the owner

AUTHOR: the_guy_u_hate - (United States of America)

Hello all, I am the owner, and frankly, I havent much time to respond to such idiot statements that i have read over the internet, but i figured, why not just once.   1) I in business to make money, thats what I do and yes, i have had referrals from various entities, including match.com.  People talk about me and the good work we do at our facility and I am proud of the work we do with the individuals with work with, however the referrals at just that "referrals."  I do not force anyone to sign with me, nor do i strong arm anyone into signing my contract, they do it because the feel as though I may have a program that works.   Anyone that refers a person to me facility will receive free sessions, it says so on the profile sheet that everyone fills out, so the individuals who fill the need to trash me, know this.  So does that mean some individuals refer people to me are doing so with the intent of gathering more session for themselve or there relatives or loved ones that work out at my facility?   Yes?  and thats the whole point.   Its a minute form of marketing.  So where is the crime?   there is none.  Where is the harm in individuals, through conversation, mentioning me and what I do and the results I have gotten for other individuals, to other individuals?   I dont see harm in it.  Just because a person is referred to me, that doesnt automatically equate to a sale.  So the people who are complaining cant substantiate there claims with a valid and viable reason under the law so they resort to inflammed bashing, but my business is still open and running strong.  Also, there were strong allegations of inapporpriate contact between me a couple of the individuals who wrote negative reviews.   Well, what i say to that is, "why did you never come forward and report it to the police?"  Because it never happened and I for one, can prove it.   Every person that comes into my facility has to sign in with the date and time of arrival and that was specifically established to combat issues such as this, because my gym is under 24 hour audio and video surveillance.  So i wish the person who made those comments would come forward because when I find out who it is, and we will, you would be surprised what power a subpoena could have, then I have a very strong lawsuit waiting to be filed. So the allegations are completely false, because one, I up until recently, very rarely trained my clients, I have people who do that for me, under my guidance, of course, and two, if it were true, i think i would be shut down, out of business and most likely in legal hot water.  The allegations are simply not true.   Im still in business and stronger than ever. Speaking of legal, yes, I have had my run in with the law, namely traffic.  I have alot of expensive cars and they are very fast and I have had my fair share of speeding tickets.  Unfortunately in the state of florida, if you get a ticket and you forget to pay it, then they suspend your license. when they do that and they stop you again, you go to jail.   so yes, im guilty, and of course, issues of a personal nature involving ex's and baby mommy drama, things  like that, but never killed anyone, or assulted anyone or stolen anything and yet again, im still in business.    so to all of you who believe the garbage you are reading, i cant do anyting about it, but to those who continue to write this stufff, shame on you, and we you come forward, i got a lawsuit with your name on it.  I run a respectable facility, have been for the last 8 years and counting.   and oh, by the way, we have housekeeping come in 4 times a week.   If they are not doing a good job, someone please let me know.
