Try to cancel my membership because i loss my job and the *** lady at costumer services asked me alot of *** questions and then told me that with who ever i live have to pay my membership.... Then i cancel my credit card so this company stop overdraft my account so they couldn't take the money out of my account so suddenly a charge of $50.00 appear which i got surprise because i never gave my bank account to this gym and i called them and they said that they could not get my account without having me to give my card again i explain to them that i never did and that the wS a fraud getting my bank account without having me giving them my authorization.... so i cancel my card again like three times and always this gym got my bank information, so i finally put a stop payment through my bank and went back to the gym and pay whatever my membership was and then they told me that my membership fee increase $20.00 because i put a hold payment in my bank for them that pissed me up a lot .....so my advice for all of you dont sing a contract with this gym now name 10 gym is still that same crack and is not worth it for you being in collection for this *** gym.....

Bad place to workout or be employed there.Used to work and a former member.

They are rude. Dont sign contracts with them. They will say take a week to try it out. But if you read the fine print techinally 3 days to cancel to avoid the hidden $100.00 cancellation ee.

Management abuse the guy who cleans gets threatened alot asking if he likes his job. Screws with his schedule makes him work 7 days a week. He gets no days off unlike the others. Equiptment in bad only works half the time.

This is the South Tulsa club. I strongly advise please dont work or get a membership. This company needs to be reported for forcing contract scams and employee abuse/bullyism. All of the members that still go there know this is fact.

They are good about covering up abuse and other stuff. Staff very untrustworthy.

Beware.God bless the poor guy who cleans there, he deserves better Former employee/member

The All American Broken Arrow facility is a dump. Do not join this gym! They will scam you and the staff and instructors are extremely rude.

All American Fitness - Tricked me into signing a three year contract!

When I went into All American Fitness the man who signed me up said that if I can't come anymore, all I had to do was give him a months notice.However I had to sign the bank draft so that they could do the auto payments.

Later my schedule at work changed so that I no longer had time to go. I called to cancel and was informed that I had a three year contract. No amount of arguing changed things. So they continued to take the charge out of my account every single month until I changed my account number at the bank.

Now they are trying to charge me for the cost of the whole three years, not even a cancellation fee, but the whole thing, over $400. Plus they are saying that if they take me to court that I will have to pay the court costs, bringing the total over $800.

I tried appealling to them again and they sent me a copy of the 'contract' which was that first thing they had me sign that he told me was just so that they could take the monthly fee out.I am so freakin' pissed and tired of this company.

Even so, I would be ok with a cancellation fee, like cell phone companies have.These people just simply will not allow me to cancel and are trying to make me pay for services I won't be using.

Also, honest companies tell you clearly that there is a contract.They don't just stick it in the fine print and hope you don't notice.

All American Fitness - Do not sign a contract!

Tulsa, Oklahoma 2 comments

I received an ad in the mail for All American Fitness stating $10/mo.I only had 15 minutes to take up that offer when I checked my mail, 10 minutes later I was there.

I only had 5 minutes to get the contract signed in order to get the deal. I was not told I couldn't cancel... (EVER). I tried the better business bureau, but as it turns out, All American Fitness would rather have bad reviews from the BBB than let one person out of a contract due to their own mistake.

I was told I could cancel, which was the only reason I signed! Especially after they told me my $10/mo was actually $50/mo until I renewed my contract after one year. I just received a letter saying I owe $60/mo for a 2 yr contract!

Spread the word!All American Fitness is a SCAM!

OK let me get this straight, you signed a contract when you had 5 minutes to kill and that is someone elses fault?STFU!

Seriously, look every knows that fitness centers are ripoffs if you do not know how to deal with them. But, I dont care who youre dealing with. Taking 5 minutes to look over and sign a contrat makes you a complete and pheonomenal loser.

Please do not drive, I do not want to get hit by your *** ***.Thanks Mike

Stay Away From All American Fitness

All American is running the BIGGEST scam in Tulsa.Stay away!

It has been one huge nightmare, since I unfortunately signed on the dotted line! I signed up for 1 year $25/mo. Only to find out later, that the supposed contract I signed was for 2 years and $38/mo!!! Plus unexpected yearly maintenance fees!

(they didn't give me a copy of my contract, dumb mistake on my part..but the salesman was a smooth talker and I left without it) . On top of all that, the gym is filthy and has little ventilation.

It gets worse than this...but Im going to spare you the nightmare-ish details.Please report them to BBB, if you have also been scammed!

After a long drawn out ordeal with them and the BBB and a news interview (they contacted me)...I was still responsible for the contract I didn't agree to.Somehow they have an A+ rating with the BBB, but they also PAY to be a BBB member.

Coincidence?

I was out over $1000 all together, when I initially only came in for a one month deal. I totally learned my lesson.

They are true scam artists and have perfected the art of unethical business practices.I hope they have a huge class-action lawsuit that put them out of business.

Had the same thing happen.Then payment stopped coming out of my account in March and 5 months later I got a letter saying they were turning me into an attorney.

When I called I was told they couldn't reach me but my cell and address hadn't changed.Now I am having to back pay but the guy had told me I signed a one year contract and now I'm being told it was 2 years.

All American Fitness - Yearly Up-Keep Fee

Reston, Virginia 1 comment

Well, I am indecisive about All American currently. I have been a member since July 1999 (nearly ten years now). I have experienced some pleasant conditions and very frustrating and inappropriate situations too. Though I must admit that each exasperating event does better me. Let me explain further.

When the All American Fitness Club first appeared in Midwest City, I was overjoyed! At that time, my husband (then fiancee) and I called the gym for further information. We were treated rudely and disrespected. The employees acted as though they were uneducated about their facility and their behavior was such as though they did not care for members. I was appalled! I was determined though, so I called the Fitness Center on the Northwest Expressway. Turns out, my husband and I got a great deal. In fact, we have the best deal of anyone that we know.

I know that the above scenario sounds like a problem. I guess it was an unpleasant event; however, I cannot complain at my great deal. Let me just say, my deal is for two people (tanning, racquetball, and pool included) and for just about all the gyms in my area. My husband and I pay a yearly fee ONLY - our fee is equivalent to the fee that most people pay monthly. There were no tricks! There was no pressure! The man that sold me the contract wanted to make the hassle (basically the drive to the expressway and the treatment of the personnel at Midwest City) worth my time. Unfortunately, the gentleman doesn't work at All American anymore. I believe, it is an assumption, that he was fired. My yearly fee is a positive. TRUST ME, it is an amazing deal!

Now I will move onto a more negative affair. My problem is with the yearly up-keep fee. You see, when I signed my contract there was no $23.00 dollar up-keep fee (I think $23.00 is the amount). Therefore, I was exempt. And, I have been free from the fee. That is, I am exempt as far as my gym membership is concerned. Here's the problem: The Kids Fun Zone changed to monthly/yearly fee for members (or something like that).

I have seen how All American pressures people and have heard how many say they cannot trust the employees. Therefore, I was NOT going to allow a monthly draft of my bank account. After all, I do have some sense! Anyway, I paid in full with my bank card, so I had to sign a "new contract." The contract caused a lot of turmoil.

Instead of giving me a receipt I was handed a "contract." I queried about the piece of paper. I didn't want a contract change or a yearly increase for my membership payment. It was explained to me by both the employee and manager that the contract was really just a receipt. I was told, "Nothing will change on your contract. This is just a receipt for payment of the nursery use. You can ignore everything else on the contract. This is NOT a new contract just a receipt." Indeed the contract was a membership contract (according to the printed title "Membership Contract"), so that paper as a receipt sounded plausible since I was not obtaining new membership. Yes, this contract did mention a yearly up-keep fee. Remember though, I was told it was not a new contract but a receipt. I was even told to ignore "everything else."

Anyway, I ended up receiving a yearly up-keep bill of $23.00. I was deceived! I was pissed (for a lack of a better word)! I signed a contract that was supposed to be a receipt. I complained. After all, I signed a "membership contract" not a "nursery contract." I called the main headquarters with my complaint. The lady tried to pressure me into paying the amount. She was annoyed by me and even raised her voice. She demanded that I pay it or that the amount would be sent to collections. I warned her that "verbal agreements" still apply in court. She then raised her voice stating, "It is just $23.00 dollars. What is the big deal? You are upset over $23.00. Come on. Give me a break. Just pay the amount. It is reasonable." She was very unprofessional to say the least.

In fact, the amount was not "reasonable." Before she got irate, I had explained that my son had/has medical conditions and that my budget didn't plan for an extra amount especially one that I did not intend. I mean $23.00 is a co-pay for one of his many medications. Needless to say, my husband and I did not pay. We refused.

In fact, we have had several friends pull their membership from All American because of this yearly up-keep fee. They signed a contract and were not told about the yearly up-keep fee or were told the $23.00 did not apply to them. One of our friends happens to be a lawyer. Yikes for All American. Off track for a moment, I think the up-keep fee is ridiculous. The equipment is not always working and is not regularly replaced. The restrooms are not the cleanest. Though my boys love the nursery, it is not updated either.

So, we still owe $23.00. The good news though is that my contract wasn't changed. The contract I signed for a "year" nursery ended up being for a lifetime. Again, the negative tension that occurred at All American ended up benefiting my family. We still have not paid the $23.00 -it has not been sent to collections either. I am afraid to pay it since my fees are looking so great. And I have all my contracts -aka receipts- to prove my payments.

In conclusion, even though All American lies and cheats it has been financially good for me. Though I am upset by faulty equipment and unsatisfactory cleanness, I have saved a ton of money. I could not go to any other gym and get the deal I have now. We are still able to have great work out sessions too. Ask yourself if you were us, would you put up with the headache for a savings?
