About Me


  1. My girlfriend and I went along to a trial session at a local fitness centre we had been told about. After the session, we sat down in the café and received a free (freshly ground) coffee as we discussed joining permanently with the trainer. The conversation was brief, 5 mins max. It involved an iPad on which she showed us the booking app they use and details of the different memberships. We opted for the couples membership at £88.20 per month (endorphin levels were sky high so this sounded like a great deal at the time) plus we get some free gear and a club-branded item of cloth

  3. A three-year-old boy has died after drowning in a swimming pool at a David Lloyd fitness club in Leeds. Police were called shortly before 9.45am on Saturday to the club on Tongue Lane after a report that a child had entered the pool and drowned. The boy was taken to Leeds General Infirmary where he was later pronounced dead. Although police are treating the incident as an accident, they are appealing for anyone who was in the pool at the time to make contact. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/boy-3-drowns-david-lloyd-fitness-club-swimming-120600253.html
  4. Hi everyone, hoping this is a relatively straight-forward one. I am a member at Clifford Health Club (Nottinghamshire), which use Ashbourne Management for their membership payments. I emailed Ashbourne as I have moved house and I was wondering if I could end my membership as the gym is now a bit out of my way. Ashbourne replied saying I had to have moved 15 miles away, I haven't quite moved 15 miles away, fair enough I don't meet that requirement. It'll be a bit irritating but not the end of the world. The bit of the email that confused me was the opening sentence, "The c

  6. I bought a x-hose from a garden show and it was faulty, I managed to track the traders down ( Swissclub ) all I got was a contact who I think was the manager and they sent a replacement. This failed after 2 uses I called him again, no problem he said to call with my bank details and he would refund my money. I then could not contact him as he wasn't answering my calls even if I used a different phone. I then managed to get an address and e mail I contacted them and was told to send the hoses back, something which the manager never mentioned, but
  7. Hi folks yet another idiot who has fallen for the high sale pressure from club La costa, we filled out the card to win a holiday and surprise we won, went along to the presentation, where we did go for the 3 year trial membership, I thought at that price it would just mean the next few years holidays are paid. Before we even got the chance to use it the calls started, and then the invite out to the main resort in Spain, which we went, and do have to admit the accommodation given to us was way out of this world at there malibu mansions, the first day of arriving we were plagued with calls and
  8. Hi All I hope I am posting in the corret thread here, if not can admin move it... I signed up for a deal with Holiday Club in Gran Canaria, and when I got home I started asking around forums if they were ligit. People PmD ME from the GC forum and told me not to touch them with a barge pole, as they never give you the dates that you ask for, when you want to take your holiday. Long story short. I used the 14 day cooling off period when I got home, and decided to cancel. In the contract put in front of me, it clearly said that I could cancel. But hidden in the back of the forms, was a cla

  10. Back in December last year I took out a two time subscription to the 'Discovery Club' which was supposed to deliver perfume samples every quarter. I only received one, and realized recently that they had never sent the second one and three months had definitely passed. I contacted them and they admitted they needed to refund me for one, but cannot because in the mean time I have gotten a new bank card so they cannot 'refund' the card. Instead, they have now sent me a new discovery club package which I've told them several times I don't want. In the meantime waiting for the promised refund I
  11. My mum who is a pensioner signed up last year,20/06/12, for an annual subscription for docrafts club for £24. She did not read the fine print and the subscription auto renew's if she does not cancel on the website. She did not want to renew for the next 12 months but they have done this anyway. sent them an email last week to say she did not want this and basically they quoted the T&C's that the will auto renew was not cancelled. It should not of renewed until 20/06/13 if I understand 'annual' correctly? She went to the bank yesterday, Lloydstsb and they said monie
  12. Hi all, After some advice regarding LA Fitness and cancelling my gym membership with them. I am sorry upfront but this is going to be rather long as I want to give all the information. I joined an LA Fitness gym in Bedford on 11/06/2014. This was under a rolling 1 month contract. I paid monthly via a direct debit which comes out of my account the 31st of every month. I received an email from LA Fitness on 29th October 2014 to inform me that my gym was closing on 14th November 2014. LA Fitness informed me in the email that: LA Fitness had 2 gym's i
  13. I have been using this site for a while for information and advice given to others and have found it very valuable, so first of all well done to all involved helping consumers. thought i would post my issue as seems i need some specific advice on what to do at the moment... I moved down to London last year and signed up for a gym membership on a corporate rate through my work. I didn't actually involve my work, but when i went down to discuss the membership i mentioned i worked for the company i did and negotiated a deal with them. when negotiating i specifically asked (because
  14. I need some advice please. I had to cancel the healthy pet club scheme in my vets after a number of problems. I suffered poor service, increase in prices, I was forced to purchase a blood glucose kit costing me £120, they charged me £15 consultation fee when its a free health club check, then they refused me insulin as my cat is a diabetic. I reported the vets to the British Veterinary Association, whom have yet to reply to my complaint back in August. I cancelled at the healthy pets club direct a couple of months ago; why demand money now? Today I got a letter from th
  15. I have worked in various clubs over the time I have worked as a lap dancer. Most clubs (here and abroad) don't have a contract in place, you just get given your rota, and pay 20-50% (depending on the night) of what you earn, to the club. You are self employed. There has never been much paperwork, but I do mock invoices for my tax return. I have started working at a new club in Manchester now I have started back at Uni, and they want to pay me £10 per hour as an employee (including employment contract!) and the cash from stage and private dancers is pooled and allegedly split.
  16. Good morning I was hoping some valued advice regarding a situation I am in. I had a taster session with a local running/activity club. After this we were told of we joined within 24 hours we wouldn't have to pay the joining fee. I didn't join but was contacted a few days later by phone to ask why not and was persuaded into joining over the telephone. I wasn't informed at that time of any specific terms or conditions or what the monthly fee was because the guy wasn't sure. I was only able to see t&c's after a direct debit had been set up and I received a welcome email at which poin
  17. Note by forum administrator:- This problem was very quickly resolved by the owner/admin of the martial arts academy in Chester - to their great credit. Read through this thread for a general understanding of gym clubs - but do understand that some gym clubs can act very decently and responsbily and clearly this is an example of one of them. 2nd May 2014 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>&g
  18. Hi, I've had a read through the forum on here but couldn't see anything quite the same as my wee problem. So I joined a local martial arts club a year ago and no longer wish to attend. I was surprised to be then told by the instructor that I had committed to a 24 month contract that I couldn't cancel. At no point has he ever mentioned this to me before. He has since sent me a copy of the contract (below) which states I can't cancel except for reasons such as relocation, injury or unemployment. None of which apply - I just no longer wish to attend. I feel somewhat conned
  19. Hiya Guys, Can anyone help with a question regarding private club membership ?? Here's the deal... in feb 2013, I made an appplication to join as a probationary member of a target shooting club. At the time of applying , I was informed that I was to be a " probationary member " and that full membership would not be offered until I had been a probationer for at least three months and I had also completed a minimum of 12 supervised visits. After that I could apply for full membership. The club official at the time of signing me up as a probationary member took £104.00 in cash and
  20. I am a new member (12 month subscription) at a sports club that I have recently learnt is soon to run out of money and is no loger able to pay it's debts to the bank (just under 1 million in total). This is a members club, not a Ltd business. The general consensus is that the bank will take over the running of the club, and eventually it will be sold to a buyer and current members will not really be affected either way. I am not so confident. Would there be any legal requirement for the new owners to honor existing members? Or would the bank even continue running the club and no
  21. Hi I am a regular user of of Club Card, but after see a few TV programmes and reading articles on consumer data I am concerned what this data is being used for. Does anyone know what the Tesco Data Protection notice allow them to use my shopping habits to assess me fo Credit in Tesco Bank for instance, and do they sell my data to anyone else. I love my Club Card vouchers but at what cost am I receiving them ?
  22. Hi i am looking for some advice regarding my daughters holiday club, i will try to keep it brief. I booked a place on-line at a holiday club for my daughter as her friend was going and they wanted to spend the day together. We then found out her friend was going pony riding with the club so we went back on-line to add this for our daughter but was unable to do it as the system would not allow it even though there was some spaces left.I then phoned the provider and was told they will look at it and get back to us.They emailed me back on Monday night and told me there are no more spaces le

  24. Hi all got a bit of a problem at my local cricket club, i am chairman and our access to the club house has been banned ie locks changed by the sports and social club, mainly football club members, who feel that because we have had a bad season, weather, we have not contributed to the finance of the club house. we have passed all our income to the sports and social club for the season 2012. we have been playing at the ground since 1946, the same amount of time as the football club. The sports and socail club was set up 6 yrs ago by both cricket and football clubs. all the members of the SSC
  25. Good afternoon. I wonder if anybody can help please? I am a member of a sports club which is run by a management committee made up of individuals from the membership who get voted in at an AGM. The club premises are also hired out to members of the public for functions. The committee decided that due to a few break-ins to the club premises that they would install a cctv system. The system is accessed by the chairman and the club secretary only. There is, as far as I know, one small sign next to the front entrance of the club informing people that cctv is in operation. This is f
