  1. Hi All, Apologies for creating another thread about these two companies, but I just wanted to clarify my position as it's a little different from the other threads that I have browsed over the past couple of days. I'll try to be as concise as possible. • Joined Bannatyne's in March 2014 on a 12 month Contract • Cancelled contract after a few months simply by cancelling the DD, something I was told was possible by gym staff (I have no evidence to support this though). • I get a few emails between 2014 and 2015, resulting in an 'Invoice' from Bannatynes for £180, which I ignored a
  2. Hi, back in June 2015 I signed up with Bannatyne on what I now know to be a minimum 12 month contract. What happened was, I was unable to find prices for memberships online, I went to my local branch and hastily agreed to the contract at £52 per month. Later that same day, I decided that the price was too steep for what the gym was offering. I emailed them asking to cancel my membership but was told this was not possible as per the terms of the contract. That my only option was to pay up (they offered me a 20% discount as a gesture of goodwill) or transfer the membership
  3. Hi, I have a similar issue myself regarding Bannatynes Gym and ARC Europe. I signed up for a 12 month contract to the gym in October 2015, after paying for 9 months I was relocated through work 310 miles away and my new nearest gym would be over an hours drive each way. I emailed Bannatynes to give notice that I would be cancelling my 12 month contract because I had been relocated and my financial situation had changed meaning that I could no longer access/afford to go to the gym. I received an email back in September 2016 of last year offering a 20% discount but that I sti
  4. Hi My problem is nowhere near as bad as some of the horror stories on here, but just though I would ask before I do anything! I joined a Bannatyne gym in February, I signed up online as I had previously had a 12 month contract with them and knew the gyms were decent. I only intended to go for a month I signed up for the "1 month contract" which is £10 extra compared to the 12 month contract. I went for a month then cancelled my direct debit at the end of Feb before any more payments came out and thought that was the end of it. I had previously been a member of a
  5. Hello My son joined Bannatyne gym on the 12/09/16 unfortunately was made redundant. We informed the gym verbally on the 12/10/16 and first email on the 13/10/16. I have finally got the membership team to liase with me as my son is dyslexic and would not understand contents of emails. Although I informed them on the dates above they are ignoring this and now want £49.99 month subscription and £25.00 admin fee. They are slow to reply and only pick certain questions to answer and I am pretty sure they are going to string this out as long as possible. Please any help woul
  6. Hello Everyone, I have recently joined Bannatyne's through a special offer, which they text to me, which is really misleading as can be seen from my email to them below: Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing regarding my recent application for membership with the club, which became active from 16th March 2011. I contacted Bannatyne's back in December regarding membership but due to being busy with work I couldn't join but received regular offers by text message from the club. I got the following text message from Bannatyne's before I joined: 'Join Bannatyne's

  8. Astonishing. Of course, they weren’t sent in braille, and the contract signing was, essentially, dodgy... http://www.lobbysean.com/2013/07/consumer-news-health-club-deceive-blind.html
  9. Hello I'm looking into cancelling my membership for three reasons: - I can no longer fork out £60. - There is ALWAYS something faulty, out of order, or just poorly maintained - They have moved the work out areas around and it now looks like it's aimed at young men who enjoy using the weight room! I'd never joined a gym before, with the Chafford Hundred Bannatyne being the first time. I really wish I hadn't as it's one thing after the other causing the regret! First of all, I was made redundant a month after I joined, and my new salary is less than I was previously paid
  10. I was wondering if any body else had the same experience with Bannatyne's. I was fully aware of their 3months notification period and of the problems with my gym taking ages to process admin changes, so I sent my letter to them 4 months ahead of my cancellation date. I cancelled the direct debit at the appropriate time (standard practise for me now after dealing with mobile phone companies...). My problem is that they claim to have no record of my cancellation letter and are now demanding £174 for outstanding subscription fees, as seen with most other people on the forum, the lette
