Someone at LA stole my sneakers right out of the Womens locker room. Seriously. Who does that? This is Collegeville not Kensington.
It doesn't matter where you are, you have to use personal locks at all times. I can't tell you how many times I walk into the lockers, opening them up, trying to find a vacant locker & I find people's unlocked wallets, phones, keys, watches, etc..all in plain view. I don't place much faith in people these days to do nothing anymore if they open a locker & find personal belongings unattended to. Times are tough & it only takes a second to secure your stuff.

I'm sorry, but you have no reason to complain about stolen property, if you carelessly left your belongings in an unlocked locker.
You can't just assume that everyone's a fine upstanding citizen, when you don't even know these people.
I lock my stuff up all of the time, no matter what gym I'm at.
More people should do the same, because as the previous poster mentioned, I would have to open several lockers at LA, before finally finding an empty one to put my stuff in. Way to may careless people, as anyone could help themselves to their belongings and head out the door.

I have never been in the gym, but I know for sure some of the people who use the gym get an excellent workout. Upon leaving the gym, they are way too tired to walk the extra five yards to the crosswalk. Now that is a great workout! Either that or, more amazingly, they feel fit enough to stop a two ton automobile.

I feel that i do have a reason to complain. I left my sneakers there by accident. It was not on purpose and to think that bc I left my sneakers at my gym while trying to get to work means I've lost them forever it unacceptable. I open lockers too and find peoples clothing an gym bags. That doesn't mean I steal the stuff! I just look for an available locker! People don't think they need to lock up their sweaty gym clothes and they shouldn't have to! If it is not yours, don't take it! Something we all should have learned in kindergarten! Whoever did that is a slimy person and for people to blame it on not having stuff locked up is what is wrong with us as a society. If you forget to lock your car while you run into cvs for cough medicine and u come out and it is stolen, is it your fault for leaving it unlocked? Unlocked means fair game? That's ridiculous!

Unfortunately- we're also in a society of the unemployed, the unruly teens w/flashmobs, & cybercriminals. If you're leaving your stuff unlocked you are making it that much easier for anyone to claim your cash, car, your home address while you work, & your identity. YES- if you leave your car running at a CVS to go buy something you better believe you're fair game & partly to blame if the car gets taken. You seriously trust society today to do the right thing?

Typical liberal thinking, don't blame the criminal, blame the victim, or society, or anybody else.

I seriously was surprised that someone stole my sweaty sneakers from the Womens locker room.

The Downingtown LA Fitness is a lot better than Collegeville. Newer equipment and all the cardio gear has TVs

Of course it's your fault if someone steals your car because you left it unlocked! Years ago my wife accidentally left her purse laying on he ground at a seating area by a children's carousel ride at a local mall. When we realised we forgot it we returned to the area and it was gone. Luckily a decent person found it, and got in touch with us, but had it not been returned whose fault would it have been? Ours, because we're the ones who forgot to take it with us.
Noone's sympathazing with the crook that stole your sneakers, but you need a reality check, if you think you can leave your belongings around unattended, and find them when you return.
I ALWAYS lock my belongings up whenever I go to the gym, because I don't trust strangers. Perhaps kindergarten should've taught you that lesson.
Go invest in a $3 lock if you truly care for your property.

I belong to la fitness always got a good workout there. did have a problem with paper towels & soap, but i have more important things to be worried about. it's a gym of course there not going to rush to fix equipment, they probably figure just jump on something else! shift change at work, now i'm gonna have to start to go at like 8 am. hoping it's not packed at that time... hate going at 5 or 6, can't get on any equipment. i'm there to get a good work out in and get out, not socialize for hours. i had a pair of pants stolen too... was getting changed & by accident left them laying out. i personally wouldn't want anyones worn pants.. i lock up everything, common sense don't trust anyone!

so when's it become acceptable that staff at LAF takes personal photos of gym patrons? yep some idiot did this last Thurs. Not sure if he's mgt or just a trainer for Pro-Results but he snapped a pic of two ppl in a room on his own iphone. I smell lawsuit coming.
