Just before midnight on 1-25-16, I entered the newly opened Planet Fitness in Hammond, La after ending my shift work at a nearby Emergency Room. I was greeted by two employee's, a black male (who was very polite) and a black female (Olivia). While checking in, Ms. Olivia observed the hospital uniform I was wearing at the time and asked where I worked. I replied by telling her I worked at N***h Oaks Emergency Room, which was also clearly visible on my uniform. Ms. Olivia then stated to me "I hate N***h Oaks." Shocked, I asked why? During Ms.Olivia's rant, I began to believe Hammond Planet Fitness was lacking the professionalism and courteousness its customers deserve on a basic level as well as the respect for social dynamics. Before leaving Ms. Olivia was re-educated on the importance of keeping personal opinions private when it involves professional matters. Ms.Olivia was also encouraged to perform better in the future.
I am new to CFH, but I have nothing but positive things to say. Everyone has been very friendly and supportive, and I really appreciate that the trainers take time to demonstrate proper technique and form. I also value the intensity of the workouts.
Run, don't walk so that you can become a member of this community faster. Crossfit Hammond is responsible for the new life that I have. I came in being able to do very little and today with a new found love for life, energy and passion for becoming as fit as possible I find myself attempting to do things I never once thought possible. It's amazing. A very caring, supportive group of people.
THEY ARE A BUNCH OF UNETHICAL JERKS. I SIGNED UP FOR A 3 MONTH CONTRACT AND THEY CONTINUE TO CHARGE MY ACCOUNT EVEN THOUGH I WAS CLEAR THAT I WOULD ONLY BE IN TOWN FOR 3 MONTHS. THEY REFUSE TO REFUND THE MONEY THEY TOOK FROM ME OUTSIDE OF THE CONTRACT. BRAD WAS RUDE AND VERY UNHELPFUL. I WOULD NOT TRUST THEM WITH YOUR MONEY OR AUTO DRAFT.
