  1. Had a financial and communication issue with snap fitness, told them to stuff it and I wouldn't pay them anymore (worded nicer) as they could not fulfil their end of the contract. They tried to charge me twice(I had a new card, so no monies taken). Multiple contacts with them (via e-mail and messenger) with no return responses as promised. Now getting threatening letters from them, apparently I owe them 73.9, what the hell is 73.9? Is it worth spending time and effort as they don't respond to communcations or get back to you as promised (ignored by multiple staff mem

  3. Hi, I took a contract out with DW Fitness 5 months ago purely based on the fact they had certain cardio equipment I intended to use over winter listed on their website. I’ve only used the gym 5 or 6 times since and only for weights as the weather was good so I’ve had no need to do indoor cardio. Ive since been back to use the cardio equipment and it turns out the gym don’t even have the equipment, it’s listed clearly on their website in the cardio information section of the club I joined. Essentially I’ve been paying for months for the privilege of kit they don’t even have! ive c
  4. 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
  5. Hello all, I was a university student who signed up to my local gym. My last payment to the gym was in February of this year. I believe the payment was set up at £19.99 pcm. I ran into some financial troubles in February and the direct debit for this membership was revoked by my bank (HSBC). I viewed the email sent to me by the gym group and assumed that next month when they came to debit my account, they would take the amount owed + the next membership instalment. I recently started receiving phone calls from CRS, of which I have not picked up. I then checked my emails and
  6. Hi. I have just received a letter from DVLA requesting I fill in the fitness to drive from. The form itself is all to do with seizures ect. I don't suffer any? It's very hard to fill in. It was a third party (my ex ) as he has been arrested for malicious and harassing communications ect. My health is this: high blood pressure : two slipped spinal discs and wear and tear in spine: tachyicadia.This is what my doctor has orescribed: Lisinipril for bp . Citalapram for heart speed : baclofen for muscles : tramadol as and when required. Based upon all this information are DVLA likely
  7. 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
  8. Hi, I have been receiving letters from Harlands regarding failed direct debit payments and admin charges etc, similar to many of the other posts on this forum. Back in August, I paid for two memberships with Lifestyle fitness(for me and my girlfriend), both of which were on a "flexible" contract which required a minimum one month commitment. Both of these direct debits were setup under my bank account. My girlfriend moved back home in September and I wanted to go to a more local gym and so tried to cancel the memberships. My girlfriend rang the gym up who informed her
  9. I had a seizure a couple of weeks ago, first one ever, and the hospital told me to speak to the DVLA, who told me I had to complete a declaration (FEP1 form) so they could assess my fitness to drive. According to the guidelines it could be a 6 month ban. However the form says "you must not drive if your doctor says you cannot drive". Neither my doctor or the consultant at the hospital will give me a decision - they say that's for the DVLA to decide. So, while the form is being processed etc - am I OK to drive, since no one has said I can't?
  10. Sorry if this is really long winded but I need to get the whole story out in it's entirety. Last year i signed up for an off peak student membership at DW Fitness in Canterbury for £22 a month. To tell you the truth I did not use the gym often but nonetheless I kept up with my payments. At Easter my mental health took a turn for the worst and by June I moved back home {not in canterbury or kent} so that I could get the care that I need, I must also express that I am autistic and epileptic as well. As I decided that I was not going to back to University after a p
  11. Hi, Having an issue with these people not rush fitness anymore because apparently they have nothing to do with it now. So my story is, i signed up to rush gym in October 2016 and as i am told this is a 12 month contract which i didn't really understand at first because when i signed up online i saw something about no contracts but anyway. In January 2017 i wanted to cancel my gym membership as i could no longer afford the fee's as i was unemployed and the direct debit was coming from my mums account who is also unemployed and is claiming benefits as she was diagnosed with breas
  12. Hello, I am really hoping you can help. March 2016 I joined Lifestyle Fitness gym in my home town. My boyfriend got a job as a personal trainer there and we split in October 2016 and November 2016 I cancelled my DD. I sent via their online web form that I am cancelling and my reasons were due to a breakdown of an abusive relationship I no longer feel comfortable going into my gym. I didn't receive any correspondence back. Now, every few weeks I'm receiving threatening letters from CRS which seem to be getting increasingly more threatening. I have trie
  13. Hi everyone I'm not sure if I'll get anywhere with this but I'd like to try because I'm sure what they've done isnt right. I signed up for a gym membership on the 17/02/2017 which was supposed to be a £5.00 set up fee, one month free and then £39.99 for the next 11 months. I was meant to pay nothing until the 01/04/2017 but they took out £39.99 today. I rang them to ask why this was done and they asked to see a copy of the documents I received when I signed up online. I scanned up the documents and they emailed me back saying that we know it's not very clea
  14. Hi Guys I have seen you have had a fair few DW fitness problems, here's another one, sorry! Any help would be appreciated. I joined LA fitness gym back in 2013, on a year contract, and subsequently onto a month's notice 'rolling contract' from 2015. LA fitness was bought out by PureGym, however my club in London was taken over by DW fitness. I left my job in June due to redundancy, and called many times to cancel my membership,, to no avail. I called from my previous work phone, on each occasion, which now means unfortunately I do not have any proof of these calls. After t
  15. Hi All, I'm hoping you can help me I was a previous member of Lifestyle Fitness when the gym first opened December 2012 to which I signed up to a monthly rolling contract of £17.99. After cancelling my membership in November 2015 I was phoned weekly numerous times and then sent an email from the manager Jason Lombard trying to get me to re-join. I sent an email stating that I would CONSIDER it under the same terms of my previous membership i.e monthly rolling contract £17.99. After a phone call explaining this to him. I then received an email from him that a new mem
  16. Hi all, just wondering if you could advise my chances of getting a refund and if it's worth fighting for. my OH had a total fitness membership, 12 month from about June/July 15. In Sept 15 he got a new job working on the borders in Calais so obviously couldn't use not only our local gym but any total fitness gym in the UK. He called them and had his account put on hold for the max time. He then called them again at the end and told them he was still there and would still be unable to use the gym. At this point he was put through to head office and they said they would cancel
  17. I joined Anytime Fitness Stroud November 2015. Now due to me working away I am unable to go to the gym, or at least that gym and Anytime Fitness do not have any gyms close to where I am working. When I joined I knew there was a possibility that I might be working away, so I asked how much notice I would need to give to cancel the membership. I was told 1 month. At no time was I told it was a 12 month contract. I gave my bank details to set up a DD, but was never given a contract to sign. I was told that they didn't have access to the contracts at the time but I would sign one next time I

  19. Hi All I was wondering if you can help me wth regards to my membership at Anytime Fitness. The membership went live in Feb as this was a new club that opened, I signed up in person end of Dec in a pre sales event, I've never seen the contract or signed one to my knowledge. The first time I have seen the contract was today when I asked to see it as I'm wanting to exit my membership. They have messed my membership amount up two months running, firstly putting me on a higher tariff to what was agreed then the second month missing off my discount for a
  20. I joined L A Fitness on around 20th January 2016 signing up to a 6 month contract at £35 a month, part of the deal was id get a free padlock (which I did) + 2 x 1 hour 1-1 sessions with a personal trainer which I have not had and never been offered or mentioned about since, I have asked and they just said it does not apply now (verbally this is) when I joined I didn't realise that L A Fitness had been taken over by pure gym, which didn't bother me, then pure gym decided it wasn't for them so it has now been brought by Bannatyne's, it is still labelled as L A
  21. I joined Regiment Fitness in late September 2014- filled out all the direct debit forms and received my pink wrist band, but nothing else. I have now received a letter from a solicitor asking me for payment of £36 - I checked my bank and no payments have been made to Regiment Fitness through the bank. I did everything that I was supposed to do so if they haven't set the direct debit up is that their error. No one from the company has ever tried to contact me if there was a problem, and I haven't been to the boot camp for 3 months due to injury. Would appreciate your advise. Many thanks
  22. Hi, I signed up to LA Fitness in December 2014 under a 12 month contract, but was told this could be cancelled during the registration process. I used the gym a handful of times. I haven't been since February 2015. I paid my DD on time up until around October/November when I cancelled the DD, I didn't send a letter or anything to the gym. DW Fitness also took over this gym at some point last year which I was unaware of. I've now received an email saying they will involve ARC Europe to collect the unpaid payments. I understand I may be in the wrong here as it was
  23. Hi, during 2015 I was at University at Brighton and decided to get a gym membership. I went to a few gyms checking prices and commitments and when I went to LA Fitness the guy that eventually signed me up (obviously trying to make a sale) lied to me, he stated that if I moved out of Brighton (which I obviously would do, as Uni does end) that it'd be fine and my account could be closed no hassle. He stated that all I had to do was be 8 miles from THAT PARTICULAR gym. Well I moved back home to Southampton, and went to cancel my membership stating that "yes, I had moved over 8 miles from the
  24. Help! I have been a member of LA FITNESS for about 6 months and I loved the gym however mainly for the use of the pool. During my time at the gym there were rumours pure would be buying the gym I have been a member at pure before and hated it. I contacted LA Fitness via telephone to enquire about the closure of the pool and they confirmed this would happen in October once I had confirmation I definitely wanted to cancel however they explained this would not be possible!! I also explained to them I was moving house to fareham where I wouldn't be able to use the g
  25. HI! I'm hoping someone can give me some advice. I joined Rush Fitness in Feb 2015. I signed a contract to pay £17.99 a month for a minimum of 1 month and could cancel at any time with 1 months notice. Rush Fitness DD is managed by the Harlands Group. In Sept 2015 a payment of £29.99 was taken as direct debit from my account, I tried contacting Harlands but every time I tried they were either closed or wouldn't answer the phone. I made contact with my bank who clawed the money back under the direct debit guarantee. I then received a letter from Harlands on 29th Sept which said
