The coronavirus pandemic is giving gyms across the country a workout. Customers just don’t feel comfortable exercising indoors around others, but gyms aren’t making it easy for those people to break up with them.

    I have been trying to cancel my membership for 6 months. I even went to my home center and left it in writing with the lady at the desk and still no luck. They are a SCAM avoid them like the plague!

    Ring your bank to block the payment .. it simply.. stop trying to plead with them … they only want money …

    Can anyone help me cancel my anytime fitness membership?

    Why are people at the gym right now period with this virus going on? Gym memberships should be automatically canceled during the pandemic if the customer request it. This is why I have never been a fan of auto pay for anything.

    Once I wanted to cancel my gym membership but could only cancel in person with a manager. Hours were Monday through Friday 8am-3pm. Guess what? I worked 7:30-4! Had to call corporate to cancel and leave multiple messages and a bad yelp review. Scams!

    I’m a general manager at a gym, we made it difficult to cancel because we want you to be healthy and stay fit. That’s all. We just can’t have ppl decide to come in every time they happen to come across skinny people and cancel next week.

    Here’s how I cancelled mine from my app in a way I just changed my card information to a card with no money on it so when they try to charge me next month it’ll be the card with no money on it instead of my main card thank me l8r

    Its EASY TO GET OUT….. I got out of a Gym membership when they didn’t clean the Showers and toilet over the weekend and someone had vomited in there. They just closed the door and put a sign on it no entry all weekend. Meanwhile the spores and germs were sucked into the aircon. I claimed they breached thier health conditions and they cancelled straight away. Better that than the consumer watchdog right? 2nd if you have a doctors certificate stating you can’t continue they have to release you or at least suspend your membership for the duration of the certificate. Read the fine print you can get out of most contracts of a retail nature if you really want to. Or simply go in there and break the rules, sneak friends in on you pass, leave water on the machines, newspapers on the floor etc. If you are bad enough they will ban you they like thier own power most people do. So they can go home and tell the wife "Guess what i threw a dirty person out of the Gym today.". Legal documents were made to be challenged or abused, look at the U.S 2nd amendment it’s abused every day by idiot gun owners. Just ask the school in Texas".

    I can’t cancel my gym membership at fitness world lol. How is this even a thing? I don’t use it or want to use a gym, should be "hey I quit", they say "ok done" and that’s that, they are literally stealing my money at this point.

    *****Don’t sign a Crunch gym contract.*******
    I canceled in person on September 13, 2021 because I’m moving to another state due to family emergency, and the closest crunch gym is two hours away. The owner said he canceled it and would email verification. I still have not received the promised cancellation email and the manager stated they will still charge the $50 annual fee. I’m giving them way more than the 30 day notice at this point. I’m going back in today and will record the convo this time. I’m also reporting them to my bank’s fraud & theft department.

    I did go back in on Sept. 15th, with a cancellation letter. They wouldn’t even touch or acknowledge the letter. I also found out the owner didn’t even cancel my membership during my first attempt to cancel in person. THEN, the girl who recognized the issue from my first visit, actually printed out another one page contract for me to sign to confirm the cancellation. I didn’t sign jack. Are you kidding me? Then, the manager said they would charge the the $50 and the $10 monthly, and then they would verify the cancellation (translation>>>they are going to keep charging me). This predatory behavior goes against their own contract. My bank gets lots of calls about Crunch and stated they would return the $50 to my account after they charge me. 🙃
    I’m also filing a claim with the TX Sec of State’s office.

    Since COVID-19 start i lost my job and got pregnant. I was a member of crunch fitness and always paid for monthly fees. I was a gold member but since i wanted to cancel it i payed $200 as they SAID. A few months later i got a a letter from a dept collations and asking to pay crunch fitness $1980. How is that possible?? I payed to cancelled and now I’m receiving this from crunch fitness?! Omg! I’m so angry right now.

    LA Fitness did stop my monthly payment during the pandemic, they’re reopening soon, but I’m working on my own home gym. I had to write a letter to the headquarters to cancel membership. You can’t cancel online🙄

  20. Beauty of Grace on September 24, 2022 at 7:06 am

    My gym LA Fitness is still closed, I don’t know whether to cancel now or when it reopens. I’m starting my own gym in my basement.

    Fitness Connection has to be possibly the worst experience in terms of cancelling your membership. Kept charging me for 4 months after I cancelled. Called customer service, they hung up on me for no reason. This company should go out of business.

  22. Kevin Mcclain on September 24, 2022 at 7:11 am

    Never get a membership at anytime fitness. Biggest scum bags

  23. Michael Canales on September 24, 2022 at 7:14 am

    I am in the same exact situation. I am considering canceling my credit card, but people mostly the staff is going to discourage me from doing so and tell me something rude. I’m sorry I have no experience writing a letter in the modern age, when barely anyone uses letters, but hey I’m expected to just know this for granted and know who and when to contact mysteriously or they are going to keep charging me. It’s seriously been a nightmare and even if they do send me to collections, its better than having any threat imposed on you especially if you cannot afford to buy out any contracts.

  24. Rocky K on September 24, 2022 at 7:15 am

    Do not join Golds please. I thought being on a month to month your membership will be canceled if you just stop paying just like a phone plan on a month to month. NOPE!! they keep billing you and now I owe two months. They said I need to go in person to cancel at any Golds. I told them I was in N. Dakota on a military assignment and there aren’t any Golds gym out here. They told me I need to get to any Golds to cancel in person, no exceptions. Are you serious?!

  27. Sarah Hemingway on September 24, 2022 at 7:26 am
