I have been a member of LA Fitness for one year at the location listed below and here is my story. The LA Fitness center at 4140 SE 82nd Ave, Portland, Oregon 97266 (Eastport Plaza) is staffed by the worst people ever.
Ths is the worst managed fitness center starting with the manager Chris H. who has no people skills whatsoever. This guy is a real *** who treats his employees so badly it just turns your stomic. I know this first hand by seeing him fire an employee for no good reason (causing this person to leave in tears), how sad this was.
When I mentioned that I felt he was being a little heavy handed he then acted very rude to me as well. This clown Chris H. (the location manager) actually tried to treat me like he treated this poor employe that I objected to. The sad thing here is the terrible way he treats all people, not just his employees.
A month or so later I redeemed what was supposed to be a COMPLIMENTARY one hour fitness training session with a personal trainer name Ovi, that turned out to be ten mins long followed by 50 mins of a sales pitch of trying to get me to spend either $400, $500 or $600 to have this person be my personal trainer who was sent through the Chris H. school of high pressure salesmenship simlar to a used car salesman.
I politely declined stood up extended my hand with a kind handshake while thanking him for his time. I then turned and started to walk toward the door when I hear him wad up the paper I was asked to fill out, I turn back in time to see him wading up this paper as he glared at me in discust, that did it, I am done with LA Fitness and its rude employes that care only about the money they fleese from their clients.
