Don't go to this gym! the people that work there are rude... when we ended our contract after the 12-months we signed it for, they were rude, then they kept taking money out of our account two months after we cancelled it. They are liers and unprofessional! When I asked to speak to an owner they simply said "that's not going to happen" and ignored me

This place is rude and disgusting! The locker rooms smell like urine and the equipment is always dirty. The staff ruin a workout. They took a different amount of money from my account every time and when asked to speak to the owner/manager was told he wasnt there and hardly ever is. After canceling my membership they made sure to take there annual fee the following month and when confronted about it was told that's business. Don't go here! Good life is way better!!

The employees are extremely rude and not helpful at all. This gym isn't exactly dirty, but it's no where as clean and maintained as other gyms throughout the Lincoln and Omaha area. I was a member for a couple of years, due to a contract but hadn't actually been to the gym in over a year and a half. When I went to cancel the workers behind the desk were actually rude and told me I had to pay an additional fee. When I told them I just wanted to cancel they actually refused unless I paid the fees. They filled out the paperwork in front of me and then wouldn't let me sign it. It was very frustrating to have to pay for something I wasn't using. I asked to speak to someone and they gave me number for the Owner Joel Potter out of the Omaha gym. When you try to reach him its an answering service. I ended up calling the actual main gym in Omaha and the worker there told me in the last 3 years he had never seen any fees waved and that if I wanted to cancel I would have to pay this 30 dollar fee or get sent to collections. When I told him that this situation was very frustrating for me and that all I wanted to do was cancel he said paying was my only option and that "Mr. Potter will not care or be concerned over this". He then told me our conversation on the phone was going nowhere and that I could email Mr. Potter or call and leave a message with the answering service but that our conversation was over. DO NOT join this gym. It is way more hassle than the extra couple of bucks to join a 24 hour fitness or Aspen. At the other gyms you will at least be paying for a gym that appreciates you as a member and has better equipment anyways! I have been a member of both 24hour fitness in Omaha and Aspen in Lincoln. The employees are always nice and helpful. They always say Hi, smile and I never had a single issue when I cancelled.

Awful place. Awful people. BBB Rating of F.

I was a VIP member at the Lincoln, NE location for several months before deciding to cancel my membership (I have a toddler and getting up early just wasn't working out). I signed the paperwork to cancel my membership and then, 6 months later received a collections letter demanding more than 3X the early cancellation fee ($50). All the employees I spoke with about my situation were rude, and insinuated that I was lying and hadn't actually cancelled, and demanded that I pay the bill. They kept reading lines out of my contract, stating that the customer is not always right and would not listen to anything I had to say. For all of their talk about being non-intimidating, they were frankly a bunch of bullies. Have yet to even get in touch with the CEO Joel Potter.

Have read many similar bad reviews of this place. They appear to "lose" cancellation paperwork, continue to bill after customers have cancelled, and send you straight to collections if you don't cancel the "right way". Not surprising as they are rated "F" by the Better Business Bureau with over 53 complaints, 27 relating to billing/collections.

Wish I knew all of that a year ago. BEWARE!!!

CUSTOMER IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT, "BLUE MOON FITNESS ~ THEY ARE SERVED" they hire mean people like black haired TALL Adam who's motto is " It's $10.00 a month what do you expect he feels entitled to treat people like crap?" no red carpet for their customers at the Lincoln Blue Moon this employee has the smell of beer on his breathe every time he works the nightshift at the Lincoln Blue Moon. The Lincoln Gym has a small parking lot really really really small, every time they run a $10.00 promotion that Blue Moon has a Overwhelming amount of people. QUESTION AS TO How many people who are members really get use of it when its so crowded WOULD YOU GET USE OF IT because I like paying for value and having mean rude people employed there is big negative aspect when I pay with my money for a service I expect to be treated good and not disrespectfully or rudely like Adam treats customers he just doesn't CARE about his job. The parking lot is so small firemarshall needs to look into this place when its overcrowded as it often will get when Blue Moon has a membership sale. Rude employees POOR parking youll often find yourself parking across the street in one of their partner parking lots and rude employee who is usually drunk when he is working.

I want to say that the Lincoln Blue Moon is something different when the old manager Larry leaves for the end of his shift his employees do whatever they want. They give out free drinks TO ALL OF THEIR FRIENDS so they ďSTEALĒ, clock in workout instead of work,,,, Adam and Brett of the Lincoln Blue Moon brag about how they get away with the things that they do the Manager Larry is putty in their hands they said Larry thinks of them as his sons so heís their daddy. This explains why Adam and Brett steal, behave rudely to members and run amuck most people wonít say anything because the manager would just kick them out what an INJUSTICE to Customers and Members as ive been warned to hush up by Adam and Brett or LEAVE, but thatís the LINCOLN BLUE MOON FITNESS. This is my review. VERY POOR for the time being because they have a horrible STAFF (EMPLOYEES) the worse of the worse work at Lincoln Blue Moon Fitness.

NO red carpet for their customers at the Lincoln Blue Moon. Adam Karpisek has the smell of beer on his breathe every time he works the nightshift alone. The Lincoln Gym has a small parking lot really really really small, every time they run a $10.00 promotion that Blue Moon has a Overwhelming amount of people. QUESTION AS TO How many people who are members really get use of it when its so crowded WOULD YOU GET USE OF IT, many people quit because of how overcrowded I believe it's a safety hazard to have so many people under one roof at the same time I don't even think its legal to do so the Nebraska firemarshal needs to look into this Lincoln Blue Moon Fitness when it gets crowded. Do yourself a favor and pass on Blue Moon Fitness and go to a gym or fitness place that has lax rules and nice employees because you will not get this at Blue Moon Fitness. MY review Adam Karpisek's motto is IT's $10.00 A MONTH what do you expect he treats people like crap" Lincoln Blue Moon this employee is intoxicated when he works ALONE. SHAME of BLUE MOON FITNESS! CUSTOMER IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT, "BLUE MOON FITNESS ~ THEY ARE SERVED" they hire mean people like black haired TALL Adam Karpisek whos continued employment is like a pat on the back for being mean to members maybe Blue Moon Fitness encourages their employees to treat the customer like they can kick them out whenever they want because they sure do reward Adam by keeping him employeed"

I have been in and around this gym since it was Gold's Gym on Leighton Avenue. That means I am not a kid and have a broad scope on how the gym operates.

This is one of the longest standing gyms in Lincoln. Many have come and gone while this gym stayed. They used to be Gold's Gym but changed a couple of years ago - and I love the change.

It sounds like there is someone posting on this site who has a hard on for Adam K. I've never known Adam to be rude or any of the other nonsense posted on here.

I also know for a fact that this gym is VERY honest. I know of one guy who came in to pay a past due balance because he wanted to enroll after stiffing the gym in the past. When Larry, the "untrustworthy manage", discovered that he had never signed his contract ... not only was he not expected to pay the balance that he himself said was due, the dude was given back ALL the money that he had previously paid.

That says more to me about honesty than all these BS anonymous postings.

Adam is a good guy. Larry is a good guy. The parking lot is smaller than I would like, but WTF -- can you grow parking spaces?

Do employees come and go? Yes, just like every other business I have ever used. Lincoln is a college town, right?

I will also add that I have never seen a gym with staff that dress up as much as this gym. Larry is almost always in a sport coat and Adam (and the rest of the staff) wear ties a hell of a lot more often than I ever have.

I am very proud of our club and the staff as they help people everyday and help make a difference in community as well as peoples lives.

Looking forward to sitting down with you.

Iíve been a long standing member of Blue Moon Fitness even in its transition into Blue Moon Fitness. Iíve seen many employees come and go. Iíve never been so disgusted, until Adam at the Lincoln Blue Moon, his name is Adam Karpisek. Iíve never meet anyone who wanted to be the worse employee but well those are his actions rude and usually intoxicated and always talking about how he can manipulate female members into sleeping with him because heís so handsome, what a maggot, heís a wiener. Way to go Blue Moon Fitness not only is your parking lot extremely small and your gym gets really crowded you also just happen to have a real life menace to society working for you way to scrub low really low.

Im rating the Lincoln Blue Moon Fitness as Very Poor at the very bottom you will posts that are vial that were posted by the manager Larry. As well his employee BRETT steals just as much as Adam Karpisek so its the thiefs guild. Protected by their manager Larry. Please do Read before you join the LINCOLN BLUE MOON FITNESS....

I've been a long standing member of Blue Moon Fitness even in its transition into Blue Moon Fitness. I've seen many employees come and go. I've never been so disgusted, until Adam at the Lincoln Blue Moon, his name is Adam Karpisek. I've never meet anyone who wanted to be the worse employee but well those are his actions rude and usually intoxicated and he also steals drinks from the vending machines and is always talking about how he can manipulate female members into sleeping with him because he's so handsome, what a maggot, he's a wiener. Way to go Blue Moon Fitness not only is your parking lot extremely small and your gym gets really crowded you also just happen to have a real life menace to society working for you way to scrub low really low. He also has sneaked above the tanning bed walls to take nude photos of women while they are tanning, the lincoln blue moon is currently re-enovating so hopefully they will add a cieling to the tanning rooms.

These posts attacking Adam are off base because Adam is in AA (a 12 step program) and gay. So there is no way he drinks and chases girls on the job.

This has to be true because you read it on the internet.
