Cancelling is NOT as easy as you think!
Jul 21, 2004
a Somewhat Helpful Review
by the Epinions community
Pros:good gym, some good spinning classes, friendly staff on the most part
Cons:small aerobics room, HORRIBLE customer service
The Bottom Line: Gym is fine, cancelling is not. Be ready to pay and get suckered.
I joined Gold's about 7 months ago. I told the membership office that I would be returning to school in the fall. They said, Oh no problem, if you move out of the city, all you have to do is write us a letter a month in advance and staple a copy of your admissions letter.
Recommend this product?
I did just that, and today I got a phone call from customer services at GG and said I needed more documentation such as a lease, cable bill, phone bill, etc.
The problem is that my lease starts in August and the Cust Rep said, oh I don't know if we won't charge you since you are leaving in August. That's not what the membership people told me and I wanted to speak with her supervisor. Apparently all supervisors have gone home at 2pm. That's some good customer service there!
I will fax my lease tomorrow, but who knows when they will stop billing me, they take their sweet time and don't really tell you what you need.
You would think a business would want to have better customer service! In the future, ALWAYS check with your local BBB to see what complaints were filed against the company. I just found out that Golds in DC metro area(all combined because customer service handles all of the gyms in this area) has an UNSATISFACTORY record with BBB.
