I was very excited to start with this gym, but as I have been here I have been exceptionally disappointed! I finished out my contract and tried to cancel and they put my account on a freeze and then started it back up! I called and told them what happened and they would not refund back the charge! I will never come back to this gym nor would I recommend this gym to anyone.
Scottsdale, AZ - I am a disabled person who wanted to cancel my membership. I explained myself and they continued to charge me. I said, "Well I don't want to argue anymore and my debit card expires next month..." They warned me via e-mail that "my CC runs out next month" so I called my bank and asked for a new debit card with a new number... Finally the billing stopped. Then a month later they billed me under my new debit card for $119.80 and they said if I decided not to continue I would have to pay $500+ to get out of the contract... It's a ruthless company with collecting money is their main concern. I'm disabled now... They don't care.
Like so many others have said this place is a SCAM! They told me when I signed up I only needed to give 30 days notice to cancel, but when I went to cancel Khan said I had to pay for 2 years. Also I referred a friend because Khan told me I would get a referral bonus, but after repeatedly asking for it I never got it. I asked multiple times for statements so I could get reimbursed from my employer and they refused to give them to me. WORST GYM EVER! I would pay twice as much to go to a place that was professional.
Shiesty and trustworthy, make getting out of EVEN AN EXPIRED CONTRACT A PAIN IN THE **. They continued to charge my partner's card for FOUR MONTHS after it the contract was up. Needless to say stay out of this place, they have made our lives a living hell in the past and continued to stay with them for sake of convenience, fortunately we're in a place now where we have a wonderful local gym who knows their members and plays NO GAMES. Anytime Fitness you're a disgrace to the gym community and should be ashamed of yourselves. Karma is a beautiful thing and it has something especially in store for you.
I joined wanting to get my body back after baby. I signed up for PT and got my first two months free. The personal trainer was amazing. She utilized every minute I paid for. Unfortunately after a while of no longer doing the PT thing because let's face it, it is expensive, I stopped going to the gym. The facility was always clean and the equipment was plentiful. The staff was always welcoming when I was there. I stopped going and spent some time focusing on my health in another way and spending more time with my family in the process. With an infant/toddler, working full time, I could not find the time to go to the gym. I recently remembered my membership renewal was coming up so I called to ask about what I needed to do.
They said to come in to fill out a cancellation form but there is a 30 day notice required. It just so happened I was coming up on the 30 days. I tried going to the club and missed the staff by minutes (got there at 1:59, they have signs saying not staffed after 2 on those days). Frustrated, I emailed the club and asked that they accept that as my 30 day notice. The club owner emailed me back the next day, very cool about it, were sending me the cancellation paper in the mail. Got it today. No screwing me over. Accepted my 30 days. No hidden fees. This facility knows how to treat people, no matter circumstance. If I ever get to a point where I have more time, would go straight back to that gym in a heartbeat. In a world full of companies not giving a hoot about their customers, this was refreshing.

First of all the manager wasn’t at the club. I waited there for more than 1.5 hour and when I came back the girl said she won’t be coming today as something came up and she sent me here. It’s a serious issue. The membership cancellation is totally a scam. I came here to cancel the membership within 10 days. I didn’t worked out here a single day and now the girl here is saying that I won’t be able to get my joining fee back which was $112 almost + I have to pay $60 remaining balance + 2 more biweekly payments will be deducted and she said, "Sorry I can’t do anything." Why these guys don’t write it straight on the joining form that whatever you’ll be paying here isn’t coming back no matter what happens. I made the biggest mistake by joining this gym without seeing the reviews about them. My $200 are gone just by joining the gym and not going there a single day because the fob wasn’t working.
We've been a member at this Invergrove Heights location for close to a year. I've been a member with Anytime Fitness for over 10 years. This year I have been overcharged close to $250.00. (It's only June.) We called club manager Kayla ** to find out why, and also to get reimbursed for our overcharged membership. I was told that these are insufficient fund charges and I wouldn't be reimbursed. Aside from being rude and defiant, along with 0 room for customer assistance I have found that not only were my accounts sufficiently funded at the time of draw, they were conducting unauthorized withdrawals for as much as $151.71 in a single month. (Total monthly dues are $93.21.)
After trying to cancel my underaged daughter's account for no use in almost 8 months I was told I would be charged the full contract amount with no discount whatsoever. Shortly after the conversation, my account was double pulled for that months payment. And again the following month. This place is a scam and she will steal from your accounts. BUYER BEWARE. DO NOT GIVE ACCOUNT INFO TO THESE PEOPLE.
My husband and I have been trying for months to cancel our membership. We ultimately had to send 2 separate certified letters. Wasted a ton of time and money (Anytime Fitness keeps charging until the "process" has been completed). The whole cancellation process concept is out of touch with how consumers expect to be treated. As a business owner, I'm embarrassed for them. As a customer, I feel a responsibility to let others know what they're getting into. Never sign a contract with AF, it's far too difficult to get out - even years after the initial contract is over.
I love going to Anytime Fitness. Its location is outside the city limits, so it is easy to get there without numerous red lights. The manager and staff are friendly and helpfu tool. The building is attractive and well cared for. There is an exercise class of people who are mostly my age that meet three times a week. It is just the right size and has plenty of exercise machines. It is perfect for my needs.
Great facilities, personal trainers and atmosphere. Good classes available and flexible hours too. Take notice of members and make sure they are aware of any injuries.
Anytime Fitness is my home away from for fitness, working out and cleaning up on road trips, and a place to meet lot of new friends with similar interests. I can be going almost anywhere and there is a beautiful Anytime Fitness nearby.
Anytime Fitness has several programs for seniors and others such as silver sneakers, yoga, and dance so that multiple people can exercise together. These programs make exercising fun and social.
As its name implies, it’s open 24 hours. It’s not large, but rarely seems crowded. It has all the equipment I need. The staff and clients are just the right amount of friendliness.
Love the pilates class and variety of classes offered. The staff knows you by name and are very encouraging. Nice equipment in good condition too. They also encourage clientele to get to know each other by offering get-togethers.
Cleanliness needs improvement and equipment not well maintained despite fees assessed for that purpose. Need for televisions on treadmills to work too. Really need someone who cares about equipment.
The facility is nice and clean, however that doesn’t excuse the rude customer service by the employees. When I signed up for my membership I was never told it was a 12-month agreement because if I was I never would have signed the contract. When I called to cancel the manager basically told me tough luck and the only way I could get out of it was either a medical injury or waiting until next year when the 12-months were over. When I explained to the manager that I was not told it was a 12-month agreement she basically called me a liar and said that their butts were covered because they had a contract with my signature on it.
When I asked to speak with the owner I was told the owner doesn’t deal with these kinds of issues, which shocked me because if I had a business with unhappy customers I would do whatever I could to help and make sure they were satisfied. They do not have a lot of equipment to choose from which is shocking given the fact that members pay $38.99 a month with $19.99 also taken out twice a year. After this experience and after reading multiple other reviews my understanding of Anytime’s integrity is that they have none and only care about getting money and not their member’s happiness. I also don’t understand why this franchise doesn’t have a customer service number that members can contact.
My key fob had been working on and off for some time. I contacted my membership gym in Blythewood, SC when the problem started. I never received any contact from Anytime Fitness addressing the issue. After my key fob completely stopped working is when I decided to show up during their staffed hours, only to be told that there wasn’t a problem on “their end.” Bryan told me to purchase another key fob. They actually denied my attempts to contact them saying that if I had contacted them when the issue started that they could have addressed my faulty key fob.
Frustrated with the matter and service, I tried canceling my membership. I had been a member for over 3 years so I am well within my right to cancel, right? Nope. There are hidden fees everywhere in order to cancel. It's like they restricted my access to the club while still taking my money denying any problems. At the physical location, Bryan (franchise owner) refused to investigate the problem. He was very rude and dismissive. I was told that I would have to purchase another fob. I had not been able to access the gym for months and after trying to contact the branch, they did not return my calls or emails. This place is a scam. Save your money and go to a better gym with more locations and a better staff. Try ??? Fitness.
I fulfilled my one year contract with the Anytime Fitness in Hillview Kentucky and they continue to bill me, fine me late fees and now have sent me a collection notice. Collection and late fees for what??? Do not join this gym unless you plan on paying for it the rest of your life. Their contract is a fraud, they put people that fulfill their contracts in collections after they fulfill their contract!!! CONSUMER BEWARE. I will be finding out what my legal rights are, they cannot get away with this.
I signed up for a membership with Anytime Fitness, McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater, FL on April 13, 2018. After careful consideration, I felt this was not the gym for me. I went back the very next morning to advise I wished to cancel. I was first told that I would need to pay an additional 3 months. After pointing out the 3-day clause in their "not a contract", I was promised a refund. I was contacted several times, via email, by the manager, **, who assured me a refund was placed in the mail. I followed up with ** several times to advise the payment was not received and to confirm my mailing address. ** confirmed my mailing address and asked that I contact her again if payment was not received last week. No payment to date has been sent to my address. What made this event worse, I was contacted, via text message, by ** at Anytime Fitness, requesting my banking information to sign me up for a membership!!!
Ms. ** stopped communicating with me after my last email, with a frustrated tone, asking her to do the right thing and reimburse the amount taken out of my account for a membership I never used. Additionally, I was well within the 3-day cancellation period to receive a full refund. I went so far as to report this business to BBB. It is obvious to me that this business does not desire to honor their contract and reimburse me for the down payment of a membership never used. I would be very leery of this company. I will exercise and carry all rights available to be to ensure I am refunded.
We signed a one year contract with them and was never told at that time that when the contract expired that they would continue our membership and monthly fee on a month to month basis. This is the gym on business circle in Naples. I called and was told read my contract it was in it. What I find funny is that the one in North Florida ends your contract when it's over. This gym NEVER once told us this when we joined. So, BUYER BEWARE, they will continue to charge your card after your contract is up. Very sad when a world renowned gym has to stoop so low to take in money, not painting a good business picture of its owner/manager.
I just canceled my membership today and I have been with them for over two years. Now they want to charge me for termination of my membership. I would not recommend anyone to go there. Especially in North Bismarck. Chris was very rude and arrogant over the phone to me.
Yes I joined Anytime Fitness in January of 2018 and the owner and their finance company went and took money out of my account and I done already paid them. Plus they kept notifying me about a trainer and a 21 day challenge and now he came and told he also needed $20 a month for an enhancement fee for the equipment. I quit them with reason to do so. He is already rude. His trainers are more nicer then he is. They talk about people in there who are doing their best to lose weight.
Making fun is not a nice thing to do especially someone like me losing weight with health problems. I turned the key in and found me another place to go and he cannot stop it either. If they put fees on my credit report I will dispute it. "Find another fitness center." He also told me which he does lie so does his female trainer. That was a man's gym. That's discrimination against women then. And who has their own kids there? They don't need to be there while the parent is working out.
Anytime Fitness had allowed my card to get stolen and run up fees on it. Then once the card had to be cancel and the recurring credit card errored out they never tried to contact owner of card and then charge late fee & late payment. How about you try to reach the members before you fine them.
Took membership out for 12 months not realising that it was a legally binding fixed contract after none of the staff informed me of this or made me aware of the terms and conditions in the small print. Tried to cancel after moving away from the area and was told that my new address was still within the 15 mile contract term. It is not. I would love to know what time machine they are using for their postcode search but the fact that every search engine and direction website and app says that it is 21 miles away by car (because let face it humans can't fly).
I now can't cancel and have had to continue paying for a gym further than what I travel for work - at least I get paid for going there! The customer service has been awful with different people telling me different things. The gym staff rude and unhelpful the second you mention wanting to cancel. Just another one of those scam artist gyms that tie you into an impossible contract where unless you die or move to India you can leave (although somehow their search engine will say India is still within their 15 mile radius.) DO NOT GO TO THIS GYM!!!
Earlier Today I went into Anytime Fitness (Hwy 49 in Richland, Ms 3921) to sign up to join the club. After asking a few questions regarding membership the club owner put his hands on me and asked me to leave his club and went on to tell me that I would be unwelcome in his club. This club owner was very disrespectful. He went on to say he was going to get the police to get me to leave. I was not trying to stay in the location after his loud disrespectful talking and putting his hands on me. His actions represent your chain very badly and I plan to tell everyone I know about this episode and to tell them to pass the word to everyone they know regarding not to join this club.
The apparent owner is a 26 year old young person with apparently no management experience. I plan to voice my complaint to every organization in the Richland area along with the Better Business or and the Chamber of Commerce. His actions cannot be tolerated because it reeks of discrimination. I am a 71 year old ** man have never been asked to leave any business or business organization.
I have a two year contract with Anytime Fitness and honestly for the most part I have been happy with their gym and staff. I was recently offered a job in another state and the house I will be living in is 13 miles from the nearest facility. My contract states that I can cancel if I'm living more than 10 miles from the nearest gym. I went to the Kingsland franchise today to cancel and their computer states that I only live 9.2 miles. That is ** as I have both clocked the miles by driving and I have it mapped out on google maps. The manager was not very accommodating and told me that I could try and find someone to buy my contract out. I inquired as to how much it would cost to cancel the membership and she said it would be 600.00. Again, that is ** as the contract says that the cancellation fee will be no more than 100.00. I'm contemplating contacting a lawyer to fight this as they are going against their terms of agreement.
Cannot stop membership, there is no support from them! Service is weird! The Gym is ok, but if you apply once, you cannot get out off them! If you want to close membership, the only way is to die. Otherwise they tell me that they cannot do anything!!! Even I will pay 59.99 for closing my account, they are not agree and keep telling me that there is no way... I didn't see so worst contract and policy ever!!! I have had experience with many other gyms, like "Gold's Gym" and they was nice - when I closed my account they return my money! But this Anytime Fitness is crazy. I didn't read any reviews about this Gym and this is my fault! That's crazy guys. I need lawyer probably... Best regards to all... I believe this review will find someone who want to make Big Mistake in his/her life.
The facility is clean and the equipment is top notch. It's not crowded like some facilities can be, no waiting for machines! I love the staff! I love being able to go at 2 am. If I want, insomnia you're no boss!
I found credit card has been charged over $300 monthly by Anytime Fitness. Then I realize that my child had use it for purchase a personal training session at Anytime Fitness. I went to the office with my child, the guy who works there told us my child had subscribed a yearly program, which is cost over $4,000, charge monthly. My child told me that they didn't told her that is a yearly program. And the guy told me we cannot cancel it and get the refund. I wonder if somebody could help me.
I joined last year and a couple of months later I had to have breast cancer surgery. After that I had to undergo 33 rounds of radiation therapy. Needless to say, I was in no shape to go to Anytime Fitness. Later I filed paperwork with an employee at Anytime Fitness with copies of surgery dates and radiation therapy dates from the hospital/s. The employee at Anytime Fitness said he would forward them to the owners who were out of state. Guess what? He NEVER DID. I NEVER HEARD A THING FROM THEM. They have NO integrity if this is how they run a business. I shall warn everyone not to do business with these people.
