    This is why I'd rather work out at home.

    Good luck Bchemist! Fight the power!

    eclipse fitness center (the gym where Bchemis roams :d) is just a few blocks away from rob place. Perhaps you might wanna check it out :)

    do you mind giving me the exact address? being unemployed gives me too much time in my hands... :rotflmao:

    and the rates and stuff too... so i'd know what to expect when i drop by to check it out. ;) thanks!

    I worked for FF here in Sydney Australia...and trust me folks whatever complaints you guys have is also the complaints that I handled! I worked for them for 2 years, I have no idea why, maybe because I was crazy! But I hated the work, I stayed there because of the friends I got to know. I got to know most of the members who in the end became my good friends. I resigned just 5 months ago and believe I AM HAPPY I DID! I tell my friends not to join because of their tactics! Money grabbing company! Its pathetic!!

    They totally didnt take care of me when I my keys were swapped by some klepto. They left me in the cold locker room - they didnt even unlock my locker immediately.
  • PoWdEr13PoWdEr13 Follower of Jesus Christ! PExer
    Here in Sydney, when someone's key went missing we would charge them for $25, but then we return the money once we find the original key. Its pretty expensive to replace the keylock for just one key. But if theft is the reason we do not put the penalty on and instead report the incident to nearest police station. Give the member clothes etc.....

    Weird as it may be....but thats what we did!

    I met a transient member at Eclipse from Australia today....he said FF there is known as 'Fitness Finance' :rotflmao:

    Thanks for your input on this issue. People reading this need to understand that even if you are a SATISFIED member of Fitness First, you need to be completely on-guard if you need to stop your membership for whatever reason. Even then, somehow I think that if you do what is according to their contract, it still may not be honored...for at least another month or so based on the e-mails I've received. :angry:

    My own issue is still not resolved following the initial contact with their regional manager. We shall see....

    PE$TENG HINAYUP@K na Fitness First - RST Makati yan! Okay na sana na nirenovate nila yung locker, sauna and steam bath area nila pero ang mga cubicles walang lock! And what really PISSES ME OFF which happened yesterday was nawalan sila ng water while I was taking a shower. It's been their problem before at hindi pa rin sila natututo. FF really sucks! Buti nalang hanggang June nalang ako at lilipat na ako sa Eclipse. *okay*
  • SweetkaySweetkay looking for my next mistake PExer
    Wow! Good thing I haven't joined yet ... I was planning to sign up sa SM SouthMall branch nila ...

    Fitness First has been good to me so far. No problems. Sorry to hear about all those with bad experiences. It just shows you can never please everybody all the time.
  • florenofloreno Miyembro PExer
    All of the FF Branches suck$ except sa The Fort Branch.

    Will check tommorow their Ortigas Branch.

    @#@$ I just paid for membership, after 4 days, eto na, the collections people were calling me non-stop to collect for the month. Asar lang - sana they should've been honest with the charges so that hindi naman ako nagulat - I really felt ripped off....

    Anyway, buti na lang i paid in cash before so hindi na ako nagbayad ulit....

    Any decent fitness clubs, anyone? Yung sanang in QC, Eastwood area?

    Why not just move to pinnacle? They're more decent than FF

    BChemist, go ahead with the lawsuit. I see you have the financial means. Show them what customer service SHOULD be about by making them PAY for their stupidity.

    Good thing I never went for the auto debit thing. Since I stopped going to FF to work out, they simply terminated my account membership since I was no longer coming in (and paying). Ni-write-off na daw ako, accdg to my brother who inquired about my erstwhile dormant (now EXTINCT, thank God) account.
  • changelingchangeling Member PExer
    yes, the same thing happened to my brother and i. we cancelled december, they billed till april. hindi namin binubusisi monthly yung cc bills namin, so it was late when we noticed. same thing, they said di kami nagsubmit ng cancellation form. good thing my bro kept a copy of his. eh ako, nawala ko iyong sa akin so i had no proof. (although sabay kaming nagcancel ha). so i had to do the whole cancellation form thing again. basta sobrang hassle sa FF, it is up to you to prove that you were diligent. if not, pahirapan ang pagkalas sa kanila. papalit palit pa ng tao kaya doubly irritating cos madalas iyon kausap mo before, nagresign na.
  • BchemistBchemist Head Coach aka The Sheriff PExer
    Still no refund, even though they told me that they would do so almost 2 weeks ago. I gave them my word that I'd post it here if FF did the right thing, but so far, nothing. Smoke and mirrors so far.
  • KingTritonKingTriton Member PExer
    Ganun pala sa Fitness First? Matanong nga kakilala ko taga FF
  • alex_yuppiealex_yuppie Gasoline Dude PExer
    Me alam nko solusyon sa mga problema nyo sa Fitness First: I-report nyo sa Imbestigador (GMA-7) o kya sa XXX (ABS-CBN 2). =)
