About Me


  1. Hello Last year, me and my girlfriend joined an X4L gym on a monthly contract basis. We paid the first month on the spot when joining (28th Oct) and shortly after had a bad experience. I went online and saw how bad this place is and we decided to cancel. I wrote down all the things I had to do and when, hoping to avoid this. I sent the cancellation request on 9th Nov online as instructed, saved the 'receipt' and also have the confirmation email that came through a few days later. I allowed the final payment to come out on the 27th Nov and then cancelled the DD on the 28th Nov. T
  2. I've read through all the threads here, and this seems like the best course of action - to write a letter to CRS (who have now taken over from Harlands with harassing my daughter). It's a similar situation to many on the forum - except she was 17 when she signed up, and there was no "adult" involved in either signing up or payments. We have emailed the gym once saying this (on receipt of the first Harlands email): Dear Sir/Madam I am contacting you after taking advice from your staff onthe phone. I have had a contract with you since 2/9/17, which wassigned when I was 17. I
  3. Hi everyone, Same old story, I cancelled my direct debit during August of this year and have been receiving the scary emails of debt collection from Harlands, who have then transferred this debt to CRS who continue to try and scare me. The difference I have compared to others is I had in fact posted my intention to cancel my membership, as I was moving away from the area as I had finished a placement role there, and was returning back to university. Now, to maintain that I cancelled my dd on the day of last payment I posted this letter a month and a few days before the sched
  4. Hi, Firstly I know there are hundreds of threads for this same matter but I don’t think any apply directly to me. I received an email today from Harlands claiming that I owe them £104.97. This is for a gym membership I took out around February 2017 whilst working away from home. When I signed up to the gym I was told it was a 12 month contract and nothing else. I was surprised to see the payment still coming out a few month down the line once the 12 months was up and I cancelled the direct debit on the online banking app. Heard noting and thought nothing of it until toda
  5. Hi, I know there are numerous people on here regarding these companies but I need advice. I joined the gym before it opened on the computers in the building. I never received a copy of my contract only 2 emails - one welcoming me to Xercise4less and the other the dd confirmation. I started uni a couple of years later and a dd payment failed. I incorrectly thought I could cancel just by cancelling my dd due to the emails - I had nothing to say otherwise. I had 2 charges of £20, Googled the gym and found the online forms to which I just got an answer 2 weeks later to say my account
  6. hello everyone i have been reading your answers and help to other members i really need your help.

  7. Hi I am writing this on behalf of my daughter who is studying abroad. My daughter joined Xercise4less in September 2013. In April 2014 she emailed them to give her intention to end membership as she was going to the states in May 2014 for 4 Months. There was no response. She was in the states with limited access to phone/email. On her return in September she realised that they had continued to take the payments from her account (she mistakenly thought they would take the mail as intention to terminate and cease requests for payment) She cancelled the direct debit immediately.
  8. Hi. I'm in a similar boat to others. I was stupid not to read the small print and cancelled my gym membership in December 2017. Since then I've been plagued by calls and texts and now electronic messaged left on my voicemail. I am tempted to write to CRS but am reluctant to start. I'm wary of giving them my address but I'm sure Xercise4less must have it as I had a contract with them. I think my fees are now up to about £200!! Should I continue to ignore it or send them a letter asking them to stop? Thanks in advance for advice
  9. Hi, I received this email Dear [my name] Harlands administer the collection of all payments due under your agreement with Xercise 4 Less. Your bank have advised us that your March instalment has been returned unpaid "refer to payer" as there were insufficient funds in the account to pay the amount due. We will therefore debit your account on 5 APR 18 for the total amount of £34.99 made up as follows: Instalment Amount £9.99 Administration Fee £25.00 Total Due £34.99 Please note that the submission for this will be made two working days prior to 5 APR 18 and
  10. Hello. Please help me regarding the debt I got from CRS for canceling DD. I apologize in advance for my English because it is not good I registered for the xercise4less gym in January 2017 and during the visit I was interested in not having a contract and being able to resign at any moment because I come from Poland and at that time I worked in Great Britain. I was told that there will be no problem and I have to pay 19.90 per month where there was 9.90 on the chop, but I agreed because it suited me. In October 2017 I returned to Poland and canceled direct debit in m
  11. I have been having issues with the cancellation of my Xercise for less membership. I completed the online cancellation form on 14th November 2017. At the same time, I cancelled the DD with my bank. I realise now that they do state on their cancallation form that you must give 30 days notive, so in hindsight I did cancel my direct debit too early. After this date, I started to recived email/txt/letters stating that I owed money. I initially read some posts on this webpage and I ignored the correspondance. It went through the usual form: Harlands adding admin fee / CRS txting
  12. Hi, joined an Xercise for less gym around a year ago and was paying the peak membership of 19.99 a month with one month notice period. I had actually joined another gym and forgot to cancel the direct debit. I then took cancelling the direct debit would mean that my membership would automatically get cancelled. Recently I received a letter from Harlands saying that my August direct debit had not been received and they are charing me an administration fee of £25.00 which means in total they are saying I need to pay £44.99 to get my account in line. They also said that if
  13. hi, i had a membership with xercise4less in late 2014/early2015. i was sold this membership with the understanding that there was no contract and that it was a flat rate of 9.99 per month and that cancellation was simple. i used the gym for a few months and then was due to be out of the country for the best part of a year on ops at with work. i called the gym and asked if i could cancel my direct debit and that id restart when i got home. i was told that this wasnt an issue and my membership was terminated and that was that. a few months later i realised that the
  14. Hi, just wondering how you're getting on with this? I'm currently having a bit of a nightmare with it. https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?481432-xercise4less-harlands
  15. Hi, As many people have had an issue with Xercise4Less I too am having a problem with them right now. I saw a student advert on a free month from Xercise4Less and did not realise I was being sucked into a 12 month contract, and only realised after a month was paid for after my first free month. once I saw a month being paid for I immediately cancelled the direct debit! Now I have received a letter from a group of people called "Harlands", saying: (Date of letter 17/10/2017, Date recieved: 21/10/2017) "Your bank have recently advised us that your Direct Debit instructio
  16. Hi I've recently cancelled my direct debit to Xercise4less and received a letter from Harlands saying I owe them admin fee of £25 aswell as the monthly fee etc... I had been with the gym for over 3 years now (rolling contract atm). I haven't stepped foot in the gym since 27/06/16. So over £175 wasted (my reason for cancelling). The letter I received from Harlands states that if I do not pay by 10 December I will be charged another £25. So I phoned up Harlands today and offered to pay what I owed (£9.99) without the admin fee ofcourse. But as you'd expect they had declined the of
  17. Hello everyone, I am very sorry to be posting such a familiar tale, but am also thankful to have come across this site. I joined Xercise4less as a rolling monthly member in February, as I knew that I would move before the year and chose not to sign up to a years contract for this reason. I moved away recently, so went in to the gym in October time and spoke to a member of staff about cancelling the membership, they advised me that I could cancel it when I liked as I was a rolling monthly member, so I cancelled my direct debit and thought nothing more of it. Unt
  18. Hi all I mistakenly cancelled my DD for membership at Xercise4Less one month early meaning I missed the final months payment of £10. I received letters from Harlands demanding £35, I intended to pay but I was away at the time so I forgot. Then £60 which I disputed as being unfair. This was passed over to CRS who added their own charges taking the total up to £126.49 for an initial £10 missed payment. Again I sent CRS an email saying that I disuputed the charges and again offering to pay the £10. I received this long letter today, the bit about organised crime was quite amusing:
  19. Hi there, First time posting, but in doing a bit of research before I delved into discussing a letter I received from Harlands, there seemed to be a lot of valuable information on this forum, so hoping someone can help with my specific situation. On 31st March I took out a gym membership with Xercise4Less on a monthly rolling contract with the following information in an email confirmation from that date: "You are committing to a single £20.00 admin fee payment and £19.99 per month for a minimum of 1 months. After this minimum term your membership payments will continue on a mon
  20. Hi all, Very sorry for the long post, hope it makes sense. I have seen quite a few posts here regarding Xercise4Less but every case seems to be different and i just want to check what i have done is correct. I was with the gym for approx. 2 years, i changed jobs and could no longer attend the gym so i went into the gym and spoke to a lady at the counter to cancel my membership this was around the 21st May, at this point there was no mention that i needed to go online to cancel and no mention that i needed 30 days to cancel my membership, the lady simply said that my membership has be
  21. Hi, new user to the forums here. I signed up to Xercise4Less a couple of years ago, approximately Sept 2014, during my second year of university, and assumed that my contract would end after the minimum term of 12 months (naive I know). I only noticed recently that I was still being charged for membership, and immediately tried to cancel. Unfortunately the online form requires a W membership number to cancel, and I could not find the registration email they claim to have sent when I signed up, After unsuccessfully trying to call them several times and always being put on
  22. Hi all, I have been reading a few threads regarding similar cases but nothing exactly the same so I thought I would ask before proceeding further. In October 2013 I joined Xercise4Less Leeds while at University, I went the gym for a couple of months, everything paid fine but after some personal issues, I had to move back home in Stafford, a good 100+ miles away. I spoke to a staff member and they told me to email the manager of the Leeds branch, which I did, explaining my situation and offered to pay any necessary cancellation fees, to which l heard nothing back
  23. Hi All. My wife had a membership with Xercise4less for over 12 months and decided to cancel the membership. She cancelled the Direct Debit, thinking that was all she needed to do. She then received an email from Harlands advising that she had not responded to a letter that was sent out, the copy of the letter in the email had the wrong house number bot correct street name. She was locked out of herXercise4less account so she couldn't give 30 days notice via the website. She has since called Harlands and paid £34.99 (£9.99 membership and £25 Admin Fee) They have
  24. lately I've been reading a good few pages of all the bad rep certain X4L gym's have been gotten over the membership situation, I decided to post and give some enlightenment to the situation.... When you cancel your direct debit with the bank, you are obviously going to get charged still. and debit.... Because this i the wrong way to go about cancelling.. I strongly suggest, you visit the X4L website and cancel that way. Also when the sales rep sees you before signing up, they are told not to mention the canceling option.... All the gym cares about is making a prof
  25. Hi, I suffered a change in circumstances leading to a significant drop with my salary. I was unable to honour my direct debit to Harlands to cover my gym membership for Xercise4Less so cancelled it without giving them any notice. I find out later that they charged me a £25 admin free as per their terms and conditions. The T&Cs mentioned were news to me as not aware of any. None were presented at the time I took my membership out, and all I signed was the direct debit mandate to authorise them to deduct £9.99 on a monthly basis. I eventually found the T&Cs in
