Don't join this gym 8/2/2011

Like many that have already posted, I too am having problems with cancellation. After sending in my form, calling 10 times, and being promised a response from Tom personally, I am still being charged after many months. This place is looking to take your money and they do not care about their customers. The equipment in the gym is lacking and the customer service is below par. Do not give this place your money; there are other places on the South Side where you will be treated better. Tom is nothing but a con artist and he cannot be trusted. more

Beware 6/13/2011

Beware. I cancelled my month-to-month membership like the previous poster. I filled out my cancellation form, was told I would receive no charges, and then was charged for the next two subsequent months. Get a reciept when you cancel, and watch your account! Of course, they overdrew my account- luckily I caught it and was able to transfer money in time. I, also like the previous poster, was given the ""Tom"" run-around. I thought this was a friendly mom-and-pop kind of place, and was going to rejoin in the fall- but they are obviously ethically challenged. Given how modest their facilities are, if you have other options, I would skip the place all together. Whatever you do, after this experience, I'd say DON'T sign a contract, they don't honor their word. more

Beware! 2/10/2011

This club has serious problems. Beware!\r The management is terrible and at least unscrupulous.\r Tom presented himself as the owner until I had a problem. Then, he needed to consult with ""the new owner"" before offering a resolution to my issue. Unfortunately, he returned none of my calls. \r On my first visit, Tom, then ""the owner"", offered three free months membership after a year. (I didn't get this in writing...my mistake!) More than a year later, I got a lot of doubletalk from Tom about why I had not received the free membership months. In disgust, I just wanted to end my membership. He agreed. Subsequently, I kept getting a membership fee on my credit card statement. (The credit card company had to take action to stop the charges and return some of my money to me. ) \r If you join, get all incentives and policies in writing. Better yet, go elsewhere. \r more

Clean and nice gym 10/10/2010

The gym is located on 25th and east carson street, making it very easy for me to get to as I am a college student at a nearby university. They offer free parking on the side of the facility as well as in the back, which is a nice perk. The gym itself is clean with new equipment. Sometimes there will be a machine or two broken and it will take management awhile to fix it, but other than that I haven't had any problems with the gym. There are various fitness classes that are included in the membership packages, which is always a plus. the staff is also very friendly! All in all the gym is decent. more

The gym is ok but their billing system has been a nightmare 9/25/2010

I originally got a membership at East Carson fitness because it was extremely close to where I work. They even gave us a group discount for our work because we had over 10 people who signed up. Our rate went from $50 to $25 which was nice. At first I loved this gym everything was nice and new and the service was fine. Not to mention typically this gym was pretty much empty so it was easy to get around and use whatever equipment you wanted. My main gripe with these guys is their billing, I'm not sure why they have such an issue. The real question is: completely inept or actively malicious because over and over again they would charge me $50 instead of the agreed upon $25. Then I'd have to call in and they'd apologize but say I'd need to talk to the manager and I'd get the run around until I could finally get ahold of him and finally get reimbursed and then next month it would just happen again! I think a couple times I was even charged multiple times per month once at $25 and then again at $50. Finally I got fed up with them and also I moved so it was a less convenient place to workout. So I cancelled my membership which went fine but now it's been 2 months since I've been a member and out of the blue they charge me again for a month of membership! I can't get rid of these guys! I've called 6-7 times now and they keep telling me I need to talk to the manager and the manager will call me back but he never does or I should call at a specific time and when I do he's busy. It's infuriating. Stay away from these guys, they either don't care or they are actively screwing people over. more

Awful Experience here 4/17/2009

Gym is small, only 8 people per each fitness class, equipment was often broken with promise that it would be fixed 'tomorrow' and never was. Tried to cancel my membership d/t illnes (cancer). Owner was completely rude, refused to give me cancellation in writing(I wanted to make sure my checking account was no longer charged), when I demanded that he do so, he said he was too busy, and, ""I wasn't getting anything!!"" (meanwhile, the gym was completely empty @ 830 am on a saturday morning!!). When I refused to leave until I had cancellation in writing, Owner told me to leave or he would call the police on me for harassment!! What a joke! Completely unprofessional and unorganized, rude, and ridiculous! Pros: New equipment (when it is not broken) Cons: Small, Owner is a complete tool more

Nice Clean Gym 3/24/2009

I was visiting Pittsburgh for business, and I was staying at a local hotel. The hotel had 1 day passes for this gym as it was only 2 blocks away. When I got there, I was pleasantly surprised as the equipment was all new and very clean. The gym had everything I needed to get a great workout. The staff was very friendly even though I was from out of town and not a normal member. If I lived in Pittsburgh, I would definitely make this my gym. Pros: New Equipment, Not Crowded, more
