    kung nabiktima kayo ng FF dapat ireklamo nyo sa DTI para nga naman yung mga existing members di mahirapan dapat turuan ng leksyon ang mga ganyan companya.e kung talaga nagmamatigas sila demandahan wag kayo papayag na areglo na di na kayo sisingilin dapat yung business policy baguhin nila. kasi marami pang ibang members na pwede mabiktima. magaling kasi marketing nila lalo na sa the block maalaga sila sa customer nila kahit nasingil na nila kinakausap nila sa gym tsaka paikot ikot sila. bago pa kasi tignan natin kung sino aangal sa mga members sa branch the block.

    october 18, i posted here and said "anyhoo, tapos na kami sa fitness first. sana hindi nila kami i-charge." -- nasabi ko yun because we settled all our accounts already.

    but what do you know!

    Greetings from Fitness First GREENHILLS! We would like to inform you that your monthly dues for this month was not successfully debited to your credited card. Kindly settle your dues for this month on or before October 30, 2006. For more inquiries, you may call sherstine or dine at 7254592. Thank you.

    we paid all our dues last october 18 and two days after i get this message. that's the exact message i recieved. so talagang hindi maayos pala ang sistema nila. how sad.

    guys, r u telling me to terminate the subscription with ff :
    1. first cancel or terminate the subscription to FF then
    2. right after that, cancel your current cc and apply another one? then para siguradong di ka na ibibill ng FF?

    Greatbop>>>actually dependent instructors sa group classes. but should you rely on group classes alone no! iba pa rin me nagassist sa weight training kahit na wala ka pambayad ng 1:1 kanina lang nakita ko yung pt na pagkatapos ng powerpack sabi ko wala ako pambayad di na ko pinansin palabas ng mall dedma ko nga. yun naman talaga dapat ang concept ng gym weight training barbells and the program which is suited for your body depending on what you want. mabuti pa pipitsugin na gym makikita mo yung nagbibigay ng pliers malalaki ang katawan masculado sa ff patpatin, certified crap.

    But then again at least you must have some credibility right? Would you have your hair done by a bald hairstylist? I assume not

    so you're saying that pacquaio shouldn't train under a borderline r3tard like freddie roach?

    Freddie roach has been a coach with many years of experience long before Pacquiao was taken under his wing. These trainers at FF don't even look like they work out and have produced no results for their clients
  • hehehe, pati si freddie roach napasok dito....

    go pacquiao, beat morales!

    Well what if that bald hairstylist has been doing it for years also? His/her point was looks are just second to knowledge. No need for your usual sarcastic remarks.

    exactly. i've seen results hapen TO ALOT OF PEOPLE who've been training under these so called 'questionable looking' trainers as you put it.

    i mean, the reason why yung mga trainers ng mga small gyms are that big is because they're body builders themselves.

    yun lang nga, nagkataon na wala silang mahanap na trabaho (or midnights as bodyguards) kaya sila nag tyatyaga sa mga maliliit na gyms.

    that is true, diba?
  • BchemistBchemist Head Coach aka The Sheriff PExer
    I gotta admit that big bodybuilder types are usually the WORST trainers.

    But the trainer should have SOME form of development himself/herself.

    In other words, if the guy/girl doesn't appear to work out at ALL and has NO portfolio of before/after pictures of his/her clients, this should be all of the evidence you need.

    If the opposite is true, then by all means, ignore their appearance and HIRE THEM :)

    The reason why trainers of small gyms are huge is the fact that they use steroids and by doing so, they could just lift light and get insane pumps.

    i've seen them post pics of themselves in competitions.

    shucks..we have the same experience....i was billed an extra one month even after my termination period way last april and even up to now di pa rin naayos! goodness and you're right, joy herrera na yan is the so-called manager na parating pangako na lang at hanggang ngayon di pa siya naayos...im just relying on the wisdom that with the way they are treating their customers.....they will have their "day" someday and somehow...
  • GreatBopGreatBop Beerhand Gets Big Pots PExer
    yeah. my brother recently cancelled rin sa ff.

    e frigging CC ko ang gamit nya. kaya every couple of days finafollow up ko yung status ng kapatid ko. last bill date is nov 1. if by nov 5 hindi pa naka lagay na STOP PAYMENT, i'll throw their computer monitor into the ground and force 'company termination' on myself.

    Lawls!

    if this is you and not a quote from someone -- why not follow your own advice and report your CC and ask for a replacement? :bop:

    if its a quote from someone - nvm.

    hay naku another observation at ff at north edsa ang dami nila mga personal trainer pero wala ka man lang makita na gumagala sa free weights section kahit na ba wala silang client na gusto magbayad ng 1 on 1 sana kahit paano maging spotter sila sa pagbubuhat ng olympic bar eh kaso nakaupo lang sila sa table nila nakikipagdaldalan. kesyo marami sila credentials nakapaskel sa bulletin board me red cross training kuno. kaya nagtyatyaga ako sa low bar barbell pero me results naman ayoko umasa sa smith machine.

    nah... not yet.
    pero I AM GOING TO CHECK UP ON THEM EVERY DAY after november 1.

    yun yung pinagkaiba sa atin eh. marunong ako mag follow up. mga nakausap ko kasi na hindi na members, pag fafollow up ka naman, ma cacancel na for good without charges rin. :)


    last bill date is nov 1, and last membership date is nov. he still goes sa gym naman eh. diba?

    :)

    so yun.
