Review: Planet Fitness-Vancouver
Posted in the Orchards Forum

While the price of membership is great for the public, the employees of the Vancouver Planet Fitness at Garrison Square must contend with subpar wages and a constant battle for meal breaks, correct pay on their checks, and respect. The owner/investors Kalpana and Octavio treat their employees like mules: happy to run them into the ground and work their butts off, but ready to dispose of them at the slightest chance they resent their mistreatment. If you're a member enjoy the low price, but understand that it comes at the expense of tyrannical treatment from ridiculously underqualified management towards people who just want to earn an honest paycheck and be treated decently. Also, be on the lookout for Shan, the cleaning lady at night. Shan is known to lie about other employees and spend nights talking on her cell phone rather than cleaning. She's probably a drug addict and definitely has emotional issues. Watch out!

Members at planet fitness are in a great place to receive an affordable gym membership without all the frills and complications from other gyms. The envronment is clean and there is enough machines available for everyone. However, knowing quite a few of the employees I am sure that this is a horrible envronment for those employees. The owners are greedy and money hungry and only care about saying what they need to say and getting away with everything they can. They will promise you one thing just to keep you happy, then come up with a million excuses for you not receiving your end of the deal. The owners Kelpna and Octavio are not good people. They may pretend to be, but its at the expense of everyone else. They recently tried to "build a case" against a perfectly good hardworking employee in order to stop her form getting unemployment. Because they are greedy and they were bitter about her having a second job. Many of the employees have attested to being shorted hours on paychecks, being asked to work off the clock, and doing things far beyond what they are paid for. But all the employees are too afraid to speak up about it because the second you go against the grain and point out any wrong doing by these horrible owners and managers they pull out the grudge and then the hour shortage and building of cases against you begins with excuses galore! Planet fitness is a great icon. I believe in everything they stand for. But the management of this specific franchise is horrible and is not at all what any business should be run like. I would never recommend anyone to work there based off what Ive heard and I would never apply for myself.
