I really like this gym! i recently became a member and i enjoy the atmosphere, people are really friendly, i have made alot of friends working out here. great free-weight section and its not overcrowded like some of the other places i worked out.
I strongly disagree with many of these bad reviews....I've been a member at this gym for a couple years now and I have never had any problems. I love the gym, the atmosphere, the staff is very friendly, and I can tell that they have been doing their best to upgrade! The gym looks even better than before, they got a bunch of new equipment, everything is working, the spa area is amazing! And I don't know what these people are talking about when they say this gym is dirty...I see the cleaning lady there every day doing her job. Also, I've never had any problems with the payment system, I joined for zero down and $25 a month it comes out of my debit credit automatically each month and I personally think that's the easiest method. People who are complaining probably just aren't making their payments like they agreed to when signing up for the gym. But anyways, I just wanted to write a review of this place because I am very happy here and joining this gym was one of the best decisions I've made because it's given me a place to workout comfortably and affordably.
having been a member of European Fitness for years, I just have to respond to the unfair comments that have been made. we have always enjoyed working out there and using the spa area,and the different classes for aerobics.over the years they have made every effort to update the place and have just put in some really nice new equipment. we dont have a problem with the cleanliness there, of course there are people who are slobs and leave a mess, thats not the fault of the club!! tell the cleaning lady, she will take care of it. any gym will get people like that.
when you sign up they explain the contract to you,or you wouldnt give them you bank card # would you?and why wouldnt you pay your dues as agreed? thats ridiculous.many kinds of bills are paid electronically.
Its a gym where you get a great deal for your money.go check it out and get healthy.
This is not a good place as it is so completely dirty. Men do not rinse themselves in the provided pool-area shower between the sauna/steam rooms before entering the hot tub. I pointed this out to one man and he pretended I was crazy. The girls showers maintained gobs of hair purposely stuck onto the tile walls with gum for many weeks. There is rampant racism with the clientele that visit this place. Men hawk and blow their noses in the pool, too.
Tip: Be sure to stop them from taking payments from your bank account to cancel membership. The only way to do this is to cancel and re-order a new debit card. They use your debit card number to withdraw funds and the bank cannot stop this. Talk about shady operations... Most automatic debit withdrawals are done with bank account number and can simply be stopped as the bank requires your permission for automatic withdrawals. Think about it - what is to prevent them from emptying your bank account and running off to some country, when they have your debit card number?
Great gym for a low price – I read the reviews on here and then went down to check it out for myself after seeing the ads on TV for $20 a month. I thought the place was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. I joined with my friends and we love going to the Zumba classes. I have recommended this gym to my family and friends because it's a great value. I'm writing this review because I think that people need to know that this place is inexpensive and the classes are great. THe really nice thing is that it really is $0 to enroll unlike some other clubs in town who advertise cheap rates, but then charge a large enrollment fee.
Unauthorized Charges – I cancelled my membership with these people in November and personally turned in my membership card at that time. I still owed a couple of months dues which I had set up on direct payments from my bank. This has proved a mistake as I am having problems stopping them from charging my account without authorization. I cannot go there in person when the office hours are open because of my work schedule and they will not acknowledge or return my inquiries. Their untimely, and unauthorized, charge last month caused me a $35 overdraft fee which they owe me for as well. They charge? A new membership card. Stay away from this organization unless you do not mind them dipping into your bank account whenever they please. It looks as if I am now forced to hire an attorney to sue them.
best value, great workout – for $20 a month and no hidden costs you get the best value in town and a trainer.plus you have the spa and aerobics too. always looks clean to me and they have a great cardio theater. I know lots of folks who have been members for more than 20 years. good place, good people, family orientated.
Don't sign! Run away! – I made a Citysearch account just to write this review. This place is awful. I agree with the majority of the negative reviews... dirty, bad customer service, old decrepit machines, filled to the brim with creepers. I am so glad that my contract is up! The only problem is, they are still charging my account! I am in the process of removing them from my bank account and memory completely. Please DO go see for yourself... I promise not to say 'I told you so.'
HAPPY WITH MY MEMBERSHIP!! – never had a problem with working out at European, I wouldnt have bought a membership if I didnt want it!! duh!! (as with any other business, if you dont pay your bill they will contact you, duh!!) a friend gave me a free pass a couple of years ago and Ive been going there ever since and have refered many friends who are now members. its a great deal for the price, with all the amenities you could want.pool, sauna, hot tub, aerobics etc., check it out for yourself!!
Not a place to be. – This has turned into a more than dissapointing experience. I came in once and got roped into a year contract I didn't want. I have worked out in this gym one time and that was more than enough to convince me that I never wanted to go back. The employees are pushy, and only want to get your money. They will hound you until you pay them, then you don't even exist to them--until your due to pay again. The place doesn't give a good impression- no hello's when you walk in the door, no good-bye's or have a good day. I detest comming here, and will be so happy when this horrible membership is over. I even go to another gym just so I can get the experience I feel I deserve. All I want to do is sue these people for what they've put me through, but after everything I just want to be done with them as soon as possible.
This is just a rip off place that doesn't not give a **** about you, or your health, only your wallet. So consider any other form a fitness before you come here.
I pay for a different gym (more than doubling my cost for fitness per month), but it is so much better! I am never coming back here again. And I won't let my friends make the same mistake.
