FYI ..... Anyone dealing with this guy should turn and run the other way. Don't know if he is still at international anymore, but if so I'd avoid there too!!!

No integrity, and he will lie and deceive to separate you from your money.

Yes. They call him Fort-Swindle. Liar and a thief. AVOID HIM AND INTERNATIONAL SPORTS CLUB AT ALL COSTS.

He stole $700 from my sister, and all you have to do is GOOGLE to find truth.......... Google...INTERNATIONAL SPORTS CLUB SCAM LAFAYETTE.

How they are still in business is beyond me!!!

Paul is a crook, and just about everybody knows it. If you need a gym I'd suggest newtone, or invest in some at-home equipment.
Also, I do know that the place is filthy and they have had many, many customers who have contracted MERSA. YUCK!!!!

I heard they are finally closing down international sports club....Think the law suits have finally caught up with Mr. Fortwendel.

If you are a member I would suggest untying any cards set up to pay dues, as they will continue to charge after the doors close....and for larger amounts too!!!

Filled out paperwork late April/early May to cancel our membership which was up early June. Just realized our account is still being charged. So June, July, and August. Poor monitoring on my part. Husband just went to bank and blocked future charges!
Charges filed

The guy is nothing but a hungry money grubber. I knew some people who worked there and had to pay support. He took it out of their checks all right, right into his pocket. I'm glad two of the three got shut down and the other one needs to as well. He takes people's money whether they work there or had worked out there and cancelled there memberships. He needs the money for his drug habit and most of the police and lawyers won't do anything to him because he pays them off to keep him from being sued and out of jail. The guy is a crook, liar, thief, and some other names I care not to mention. He needs to be shut down and put out of business and put in jail. He is a total waste of human space, extremely rude, and piss-poor business man. He's been in business way too long. SHUT HIM DOWN.
