I walked into the Hilliard Urban Active to cancel my membership the very next day after enrolling and they refused to let me cancel..I am now in collections over this so I will be joining this class action suit if I can!

State Fire Marshall should close them down for overcrowding! Also,no lockers, long waits for equipment, filthy place! Oftentimes, returned home because I couldn't find a parking space after circling for 10-15 minutes. It would have been better to purchase the Jane Fonda exercise dvd on eBay for 99 cents. Consumer beware of this place.

ESPECIALLY FOR PEOPLE THINKING OF JOINING THE NEW DUBLIN GYM, please remember: If you decide to cancel, send the cancellation form via certified mail ASAP, no matter what they say. If they can stall you, so might not send the letter in time to avoid another payment.

don't go to lifestyle family fitness either. they really screwed me over. i joined and bought like 10 personal trainer visits (not that i wanted to but they REALLY pressure you) then after the trainer hurt me to where i had to take 2 days off work because i could barely walk...they refused to refund the 4 sessions i had left. i went all the way to corporate and the corporate guy was REALLY nasty to me on the phone. what a bunch of losers!

Does anyone belong to the Gahanna YMCA? It's the same price as what I'm paying at the NA UA. Curious for opinions.

And why/how are they still opening gyms and doing so well?
I did have an issue cancelling mine, many trips there to cancel it face to face and then back with a printed off email they were requiring. Money makers, we all fall for it from time to time. They should be called out on it for sure!

Don't put faith in the BBB rating. All they have to do is pay a fee and that rating will jump up to an A.

We tried to cancel once... It didn't work. Front desk said they would cancel us. month later 60$ fee hit bank account.

My wife and I spoke to the manager at urban active and they said they would cancel the plan. Month later, 60$ fee hit bank account.

Nope. Liars.

Keep on billing and billing.

You have to print and mail a form to kentucky and pay them to cancel your plan.

Pay 10$ fee to cancel!? really!? That is lovely.

I sent my cancellation by certified mail and literally had to fight with them for months before they would accept my cancellation. I will never ever provide my credit card for automatic payments ever again for anything. It was a nightmare.

When you join the YMCA you can go to any Central Ohio YMCA, and you can go to many YMCAs around the country for free or $5.00 or less as well with your ID. We have been Y members for years, and it is convenient for the whole family. Maybe we don't get the latest trendy classes or multiple times for classes, but it is definitely worth it, and you get treated very well.

Another example of people who want to blame others for their problems and end up making the rest of us pay higher costs. I personally Love U.A. and will be a lifetime member. It is by fqar the best place to get fit and really fun to go there. Every one is very nice and atmosphere is very professional. They set high standards to ensure a great experience for the clients. I am in no way affiliated with them but this kind of lawsuits against companies disgust me
