90-Year-Old Man Says LA Fitness Took Advantage Of Him


A NORTH TEXAS MAN SAYS A LOCAL GYM IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE TRYING TO GET IN SHAPE. THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US. HE SAYS HIS 90-YEAR-OLD AUNT — DAD EXPERIENCED IT FIRSTHAND AND IF THE STORY YOU WILL SEE ONLY HERE ON CBS DFW. THE MAN SAYS HIS FATHER WHO IS 90 YEARS OLD SIGNED THIS CONTRACT AND WHEN HE DID IT HE HAD NO IDEA WHAT HE WAS GETTING HIMSELF INTO AND HE ALSO BATTLES BLOOD CANCER SO THERE IS REALLY ONLY CERTAIN EXERCISES HE CAN DO. HE WALKED IN HERE INQUIRING ABOUT YOGIC CLASSES BUT LEFT WITH THE CONTRACT FOR PERSONAL TRAINING SESSIONS TOTALING MORE THAN $5000 AND NEVER RECEIVED A COPY OF THE CONTRACT AND HAD NO IDEA WHAT HE WAS SIGNING UP FOR HE GOT HIS FIRST BILL IN THE MALE ABOUT ONE WEEK AGO TOTALING MORE THAN $500. IT SHOCKED HIM AND HE WENT BACK TO THE GYM, LEARNED ABOUT THE CONTRACT AND WAS TOLD THE ONLY WAY HE COULD VOID THE CONTRACT WAS TO PAY HALF OF IT AND HE SAYS HE DOESN’T HAVE THE MONEY AND THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU SAYS CASES LIKE THIS ARE NOT UNCOMMON. IN THE LAST THREE YEARS THEY HAVE RECEIVED MORE THAN 2000 COMPLAINTS AGAINST THE COMPANY THAT OWNS LA FITNESS. THEY SHOULD RE-EXAMINE WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND CHANGE THEIR APPROACH. WE DID REACH OUT TO LA FITNESS MULTIPLE TIMES OVER THE LAST TWO DAYS AND HAVE NOT HEARD BACK. THE BBB DOES HAVE ADVICE FOR PEOPLE THAT GET THEMSELVES INTO SIMILAR SITUATIONS AND WE WILL
