Where I work, a colleauge gave 2 free weekly passes to try out a Southfiled, MI LA Fitness center. I go the facility, speak with a rep, Billy, who I was told is a member of my church here so I thought I could trust this guy.
All I wanted to do was try the gym for two weeks, like I said to Billy at the onset. So instead, he quickly takes me on a tour of the place, while spurting out gospel quotes like, "you need to get yourself together first and "God wants you to improve yourself" and so on.
At the end of the tour, I noticed Billy took away the passes and started talking about membership and how much was this and that, My trust level was so high that I gave him my credit card info. HUGE MISTAKE. I thought I was dealing with a fellow church member who would look out for my best interests; he wouldnt deceive me right?
I thought about it for 3 days and decided not to take membership. I sent a text to Billy, after all he told me to let him know what I'm going to do, I texted that I wanted to cancel. 3 weeks later, I discovered my checking account was debeted for $270! I fought through repeated calls to their "corporate office" to expidite refund for over eight hours!!
After threatening legal action, they finally said they would refund the charges back on my card in 3 to 5 business days.
The kicker to all this is, LA fitness debited the money I was to pay for rent. Now I have to appeal being evicted from my apartment because of those sleaze bags at LA fitness.
DO GO THERE!!! STAY AWAY!!!
