Being a former LA Fitness Employee I can say that when it comes to car break ins or theft inside the gym, they don't do jack ***! I worked there for about three months and saw at least four different car break ins (all at different types of the day, usually dusk or late though) and multiple thefts from inside whether it be a member sets down a bag and someone steals it or breaking into lockers, or grabbing items when members are showering so when they come out there stuff is gone. All we did was file an incident report which supposedly went to cooperate. I made sure each one I filed that the person called the local police station right then and there (doing my part to make sure they got help.
Its common sense to not leave anything in your car of value...one member only had his cell phone inside his car, broad day light and they came, punched in his window and stole it along with gloves and a hat. HORRIBLE! Lots of times, people get hooked up at other clubs and get in under wrong names and such, which is why its so important to make sure everyone scans in and has a pic on file.
Sad though for those that have had stuff taken, I hope you post a complaint and take it up with cooperate and such.
Churches and clubs are known to be broken into lots especially in time of season that its busiest-still why would it be so hard to have a security guard or something present? And why does LA Fitness not do anything to try and reimburse their members...they usually end up leaving..
