I was one of the first members of this gym (Fitness 19 Cary NC location), so I have been their from the beginning so let me share some information with you.
First, the gym is insanely crowded. The last time I went to the gym I walked in with a workout plan, saw that everything I wanted to use was taken and walked right out, this is what you will get. The gym is MOBBED from around 3:30pm and only thins out about 30 minutes to close. So if you want a treadmill, or God forbid to get on some weights just forget about it, resign yourself to just using whatever is open which in my experience isn't much.
Second, and most importantly THEY WILL DING YOUR CREDIT. I was issued a new debit card by my bank after many people's cards, including my own, was compromised. Fitness 19 in Cary was unable to bill this card, and so I gave them my new information (dumb.) When I looked at my credit report I had only one item on it...you guessed it, a ding from Fitness 19. The really annoying thing is that not all Fitness 19s do this, I spoke with another location who said they don't ding credit reports...just this awful location.
Here's where it gets better:
I recently quit the gym on the date of billing, you pay in advance so would be paying for my next month of gym service. So I'm done, right? Oh, no! I get another call telling me they are going to report my credit...again. I called their manager Hanson (Hansen?) who tells me that yes this is the case and basically blows of the complaint of a guy who was their for the last 3 years, hasn't been the his gym in 4 months due to the gyms overcrowding, who he told not 3 weeks earlier when I was trying to cancel that I was one of ""their first members"" and how he would work hard to try to keep me, and who I told numerous times during the conversation that I was unhappy with their gym. Long story short, don't join this crappy gym...but if you do, do this:
I was paying $15 a month, but when I asked to quit they offered me the option to stay at $7.50 a month, and then at $5 a month, and they did the same thing with my girlfriend who quit. So, if you do join this gym...and you are a fool if you do...just ""quit"" then let them weasel you down to $5.
I am really...really unhappy with Fitness 19.
Don't make the same mistake. Find another gym to join.
