I went to LA Fitness located in Hemet a few days ago, to find out about their membership prices. I was introduced to a tall, healthy looking young man.
We sat at his desk, I explained that I didn’t want a tour of the facility and I didn’t want to fill out any forms.
I just wanted to get prices of the membership. The young man handed me a form to fill out. I told him I didn’t want to give out personal information unless I accept membership. He told me that I could take the form with me if I didn’t like the offer.
I agreed to put my name and telephone number at the top of the form.
He flipped the paper over and wrote down three different options of membership showing the prices of each one. He began his pressure sales pitch which I didn’t like. As he tried to pressure me into joining the membership, I interrupted and told him I was no longer interested.
As I got up from the desk and reached for the form that had my name and phone number on it, he grabbed it and said that he had to keep it.
I reminded him that he had told me that I could take it with me.
He refused to give it back to me. I told him that he should be selling cars and took the form and ripped my name and telephone number off and gave the form back to him. As I was walking out the door he continued to tell me why I should join LA Fitness.
I will never set foot in a LA Fitness Center.
PS: I joined The Power House Gym

I had a similar bad experience with them in Mesa, Arizona. I saw their ad on line for a 3 day pass. I don't have a printer so I went in. I told the girl at the front that I am looking for the 3 day pass to check out the place. She immediately got me a young sales person. He showed me around and at the end I asked for the pass. He kept repeating the same question over and over and over. "What is stopping you from joining today?" I told him that I'd like to have the pass and check it and promised that he'd be my salesperson if I joined. He wasn't happy with that and became sour with me. Then another potential member came and he left me. He also wouldn't give me a paper with the prices. All of this turned me off from even wanting to try the place.
