SO I just moved to Portland and have been greeted by moat business people cordially and respectfully.
I walked into the LA Fitness on SE 82nd and noticed the place almost empty.
I commented on the greeting and a man who identified himself as by first name only...(refused to give his last name)..... threw me out.
He had approached me briskly with no smile of warmth in his voice or demeanor.
He said have you been here before? in what to me was almost accusatory.
I said 'no' and commented that he sounded like a drive up window. They all say the same thing... He then appeared very angry...his face reddened and he said..'GET OUT OF MY CLUB." I said, "Are you the owner?" He said, "no". I'm the manager.
If you don't get out I will throw you out!
NO wonder it is empty!
I asked who he was and he refused to give me his last name.
I called what is listed as corporate in Irvine and they refused to give me any # to register a complaint.
The receptionist said all complaints are handled at the club level.
I am so grateful I did not take him up on his challenge to fight.
