Yes, it sucks. We liked FAC and had a lot of nice people there. My first night at "Active Fitness 24-7" as it has been renamed, I heard guys talking about getting into fights AT THE GYM!!! WTF!!! I heard the staff say that if they fight again they will get kicked out. ARE YOU KIDDING?!??! They should have been kicked out the first time they got into a fight in the gym.

There are lots of HUGE young guys there. Makes me think that maybe they are using steroids to get that big....

I had been going to FAC and is very happy that they merged! First off FAC smelled so bad it would make you throw up, secondly the roof leaked everytime it rained can u say MOLD, then it stayed dirty people didnt rack their weights, towels left all over the place people dont know how to clean up after themselves and the equipment stayed broken! And u people wanted to stay there no way!
Oh yeah

Happy, what you say is true, but there were nice people at FAC. At Active Fitness 24-7, my wife doesn't feel safe because of all the young guys threatenig each other and posturing for fights. On Monday night, a guy walked in, saw another guy and yelled "Fuck you!" across the gym, then went downstairs with his buddies and started talking about how they were going to go fight the guy. Totally childish. I can't help but think there might be some "roid rage" going on. I've gone to gyms all my life and have never seen that type of behavior.

All of those spas, athletic centers, etc. go out of business the same way. You sign a contract, in 6 months, someone is buying the place and changing it's name, then it goes out of business.

I liked Frankfort Athletic Center better even though it wasn't as fancy as Active. FAC had better equipment. They moved the cybex and hammer strength stuff there, thank goodness, because that off brand equipment that was already at Active is second rate. Give me the old, used, name brand stuff anyday. I'm not sure I'll keep my contract up. Also, though I never used it, the tanning was included at FAC, healthy or not. Paying more for less with less convenience. Sigh...

Its cool I suppose. 1st day I was there the capital city members were mad because of the FAC coming over there. Bunch of steriod girly men crying. That has calmed down. Another thing is some of the Capital city people use to work out at FAC lol. I guess they think they better. FAC equipment is better if you ask me because I perfer iron weights over rubber coated weights. Active fitness seems like a social club instead of a gym, but whereelse can you go that's close by. Im just going to have to settle with this funny place.

Depends on Brandon's mood. He quotes a different price everyday. They need to set one price for everyone and be fair about it. He's a jerk and smarta$$ most days.

Prices are supposed to be set by law.

Not true, consumer. You can negotiate any price that you can. I negotiated a very low rate for my membership at Active Fitness 24-7.

Was surfing to see comments about this crap of a place. My son signed on for a month to month plan - the first month was paid with a check given to him by his grandmother for his Christmas present. My son didn't like the place and didn't go back. Unbeknownst to us, the gym has been taking money out of his grandmother's account! They took the account number off the check - and now claim he signed an annual contract! He didn't - my guess is they slipped a form in on him. Attempts to resolve the problem with management resulted in them hanging up on us and refusing to discuss further. So, the bank account must now be closed.
In my eye, this is fraud and theft on the part of this company. I won't have a thing to do with them and anybody I know is going to be encouraged to stay far, far away.

If there is anything not offered that is in writing that is no longer in your contract then the contract has been broken and it is nule and void they are just trying to scam you to keep taking your money. Go to your bank and put a stop payment if it is automatically drafted out let them know if they have a problem with it and they try to send it to a collection agency tell them they will be hearing from your lawyer any attorney will tell you they have breached the contract
