I just want to complain about LA Fitness and my first time experience. Especially after reading all of the horrible reviews about this company!
My friend has a membership in witch she is aloud to bring guests. So we walk in my friend gets her tag scanned and tells the front desk woman this is my guest. Another woman behind the desk ( started with an M, heavy set woman whose face is perfectly circular)whips around and yells "EXCUSE ME, COME HERE" So she questions my friend, and then looks up her membership in the computer. Then calls over short Hispanic woman over who asks if we want to talk about personal training, or be showed around the gym or what ever she said.
Okay lets just skip to the part that really pissed me off, she brings us to her desk and then tries to sell us on getting a personal trainer , how they are highly educated, there the best, blah blaaah blahhhhh. Then she discussed prices, and said it would cost $60 for a 30 minute session!!!!!???? So of course I said NO, that's way too much money. Then she starts to bring the price down, haggling with me!
I don't know if this is normal but it felt un professional. So finally when she figured out that neither me or my friend would be pulling out our credit cards she says, "well you will always be fat if you don't get help, you know?, you would look so much better!" How this woman sales to people I don't know, but she wasn't selling anything to me! The funny thing is this woman was fat from fit, and looked like she needed to get herself a personal trainer, and not from la fitness, sense I looked around at the trainers who were far from the picture of fitness!!!!
My friend has had many problems with the staff harassing her about signing guests up or personal training. We are both going to go out of our way to tell people what a screwed up system they have, and yes I have nothing else better to do :) I'm retired I have plenty of free time!
