I went to the Anytime Fitness in Largo because my friends were going there and said it was a nice gym. I asked them how much they paid and they both said 30 a month and they only paid 15 to sign up which included their initiation fee/key fee.
I called before to ask if they still had that deal going on and the one manager I spoke to said first it would be 30, then he later on the phone told me there was a 15 dollar promotion that I could do instead. So I went to sign up the next day and was immediately taken by one of the pushy employees and pushed paperwork. I thought the gym was nice though and clean so I decided to do it under agreement that it would 15 dollars then 30 a month. NOPE.
He ran my card and brought my paperwork out and it came out to almost 100 dollars for a 30 dollar key fee, 30 dollar initiation fee and then an extra 30 for my first month. And then was told the following month I would have an extra charge to make sure my rate stays the same. When I got home I called the much nicer manager named Nick from the Tyrone location and explained to him what happened and he gave me a key to their gym and I decided to do month to month there. However, they had to call and report the incident and when I went into the Oakhurst one to return my key to the manager- he ripped my paperwork up.
When I asked about the month to month deal, he told me "I had to talk to Nick about that" very rudely. The only positive part of that experience was that I thankfully got my money refunded. I decided to not go to that franchise at all anymore because of the experience.
Tyrone location and staff is very helpful and nice. Oakhurst is the opposite.
