The owner has sexually harassed me when I was employed by him. He would parade me all over his gym saying he "loves me" while telling everyone in the gym to look at my body and how great it is. The first day that I worked there, he told me how no matter how old he is he would never stop having sex and I should make my man happy (whoever that might be) with sex. He would make vulgar comments about my body and even tell me that he would hurt somebody for me. He is also an extreme racist telling me that "black people aren't intelligent it's no secret that it never worked out with my black workers," his father would call me "laquisha" He talks disrespectfully about his members at the gym on one instance making a joke about how a gay man was walking like a "F*****" and that one woman he was training (if you're still there blonde lady that went to vacation when I was there...yes I'm talking about you but I don't want to reveal your name and hurt you...you are a very sweet lady but the owner talks about you saying that you "b****" at him if he leaves your sight) was a bitch. this man has gotten away with too much and it disgusts me that I have no say in the matter. He also used to call my family members to get in touch with me when I was not working and tell me his personal dating problems. Stay away from this gym especially if you are a women, personal of color, or gay. He makes fun of all of you.
This Management - SHUT DOWN THE FOREST AVE FACILITY WITHOUT NOTICE AND CHARGED MEMBERSHIP FEES - MANAGEMENT not legit ! - BEWARE !
The South Ave. SI, NY Planet Fitness was closed when I tried to go to the gym. They had water damage and machines damaged. They had leaks in the roof before this also. I didn't get a call from them telling me they are closed. This is the only location I go to and signed up in. I then went to the Forest Ave. location to cancel my membership which I paid for when I got billed not knowing they are closed. I was told no you can't cancel. You have to call the corp. office. On Mon I called the corp office and was told no you have to go back to Planet Fitness to cancel membership. I called there and was told you can come in to cancel or send a certified letter with membership no. to cancel. Why am I getting a run around. I should of also received a call telling me this location is closed and asking me if I still want to be a member due to closing this location. Sorry for there water damage to machines but in all due respect they had a water problem that they only put a patch on to fix and now have damaged machines. I am a customer and should of been called. Bad service I would say. I was not the only one at the door to try to go to the gym also.
My trainer left the gym and I have tried getting my money back for my paid personal training sessions that I signed up with the trainer, the manager will not refund any of my money. I will be calling corporate to file a complaint.
It's the kind of place where people don't re rack weights where they go (if at all). Can't find any of the handles I want to use. It's a mess
This disgusting hole in the wall gym is firstly not even worth your time. I went with my grandfather a few times who said he chose the gym for "its quietness." I quickly learned why it was so quiet. Barely even an underground gym, what bothered me the most is the way he treated the employees. I overheard several inappropriate, quite disgusting (even from a guys point of view) remarks he made to one female employee during my work out. The girl first of all couldn't have been older than 18 and second of all looked mortified and embarrassed. Juice head is an understatement and he is the epitome of the original definition (pre jersey shore) of a creep. Also overheard him making fun of a member to another member.....great confidence booster my man. Great way to get business at your gym. Don't know why anyone would choose this ridiculous price of 50 a month over planet fitnesss 10 a month. Contracts barely seem legit....and it was a pain to get my grandfather out of it (which he did after a week of attending the gym with me....old man couldn't hear what a creeper this guy was). I'm sure I could've called the cc company to cancel it bc I never heard of having to show up to a gym IN PERSON to cancel something (or else continue to be billed even after contract was expired) ... Joke lmao. Go to planet fitness...or even la fitness same price cleaner and no harassment.
