LA Fitness deals at the moment?


  • Jul 22, 2009 2:17 PM GMT
    Does anybody know what LA Fitness' deal is at the moment? I remember I signed up a while ago and all they charged me was like 35 a month and to sign up was the first and last month.

    I have a university gym too but I miss have access to one by home AND the pool.

    Do students get discounts?
    If you work for a major corporation?

    I live in South FL if that helps (Pembroke Pines).

    They vary from state to state and region to region.

    LA Fitness has some really good three year deals going now in DFW, but, I have no idea about your area.

    Call LA Fitness. Ask to speak to the sales manager. Tell him you're interesting in joining. LA Fitness is usually pretty straight forward. They'll almost always "drop" if you give a little resistance.

    LA Fitness has student programs as well. LA Fitness has discounts for a variety of business entities.

    The best folks to ask are LA Fitness.

    while i suggest you make your own choices, LA Fitness has a lot of complaints against it (some legal) regarding their business ethics.

    i'm still trying to fix the entanglement i'm in. corporate headquarters doesn't want to accept a copy of a document i have that states i can give a month's notice and terminate my training contract - $350 a month. according to them it's an illegible photocopy that doesn't bear any weight and i'm on the hook for the entire thing. unless i become -entirely- incapable of using -any- machine or service at the facility and such is certified by a physician, or i'm dead.

    use google.

    Contact your Better Business Bureau and file a formal complaint.

    Contact your state's attorney general's office, and file a formal complaint.

    Call the local gym and ask to speak with the V.P. of training for the region your gym is in.

    Call your local media outlet (typically, a television station, and ask them to investigate your case). Almost everyone media outlet has a person dedicated to just these sorts of things.

    Write a registered letter to the CEO of the company. He'll read it, if you require his signature, and, trust me, someone will be taken to task on not handling your case properly.

    You should be able to resolve the case to your satisfaction in an expedient manner.

    Call the gym where your training contract is. Ask to speak to the operations manager, and no one else, and explain what's up. LA Fitness doesn't want you on their bad side, nor bad mouthing them, and should be able to let you out.

    If all else fails, sue them, in small claims court, for the amount in dispute.

    LA Fitness is typically well managed and empower their operations managers to solve problems, on the spot. The management is much more in tune to their members than many gyms.

    You likely aren't talking to the right folks and you're getting a scripted response.

    3 year contracts? That's insane!

    LA Fitness sounds like the Fitness First of Australia but without the 3 year contract. Are they popular these 3 year contracts?

    I'm after a New York gym, but that's for another thread icon_smile.gif

    You can do month to month, too. LA Fitness has some great agreements (they never used to do long pre-payments) where you pay, say, $720.00 for three years, and then $19.95 a month. (I do not speak for LA Fitness, and this is, in no way, an offer.) For lifers, like me, it's awesome.

    A few years ago, I did a three years with 24 Hour for $784.00 and $199.00 every 18 months. That's $12.00 and change, a month. Very reasonable and smart shopping.

    go there on either the 15th or the last of the month... thats when the sales staffs have their "closeout rates"


    talk them down
    u can usually get them to waive the reg fee or get a lower per month fee

    i have a client that pays about 20$ a month but he paid in full for 3 years

    so idk

    im just a trainer i just know when the deals are haha
