Gold’s gym has false advertising in regards to their monthly membership fees and when approached about it there seems to be no one available that can address the issue. I have had to date SIX billing cycles all billed automatically to my account for a higher fee than on the agreement. I have been to the location where I signed up in Murfreesboro, TN and spoke with several employees about fixing my account. Each employee says they have “fixed it” in the computer, but the problem persists. I have been into the location and spoke with someone 12 times, have called and left messages for the manager and someone named Ryan, who has never fixed my account nor returned any of my telephone calls since July 6, 2015. It is now September 23, 2015. I don’t know who Ryan is, but I’m pretty sure he and his staff need an overhaul. At my place of employment, I work with patient accounts every day. I get back with them in regards to billing issues within 24 hours and at the most a week for a more complicated situation. With Gold’s Gym, we are going on almost three months with no response. I have also contacted a representative at the billing company to see if they could help me remedy the issue with the automatic billing of the incorrect fee. The rep was very professional but informed me that they cannot modify any Gold’s Gym account on their end in this circumstance, and that their contract with Gold’s indicates these “changes” must be made by an authorized employee at the physical gym location. I notifed Gold’s Gym in South Murfreesboro about this, and yet another “email” was sent by the rep at the front desk to mystery Ryan and again no response. This was a month ago. I would appreciate it if someone would take responsibility for this and remedy the situation by ensuring the correct fee is charged to my account AND issue a full refund to my personal checking account for the overpayment. I do not want an “account credit”. I want a refund. Thank you.

i am writing to bring to your attention that the product Sauna Suit mfg by Stamina Products
is of inconsistent quality. This product does not last more than 3 mos because they tear along the seams. For a large company as Golds, it is not good marketing to have poor quality products with your logo displayed . I would hope Golds Gym might look into this matter and correct the flimsy made product that is being sold thru Walmart along with others.

thank you,

Golds gym in Edmond, Oklahoma is not improving since you hired Sheron back. Just knowing the employees personally and hearing things about what she does is unacceptable. I would personally look into this and hope that things improve. I also know she open with how her wages were being garnish and that she made sure she hit goals every time so that she had money. There is always a way to cheat the system even if she sells personal training they put it under new member sells so she hits her goal. According to a staff member that witness Gisele the fitness manager doing this because Sheron asked her to. Honestly it’s not right knowing this as a member.
