Life time Fitness is terrible, they have the worst management I have ever seen and they do not have any concern for helping people change their lives and get healthy like they preach. It looks great from the outside, but the reality is that they are just trying to get every single penny out of you.
That is why they have pushy sales people, a spa, cafe (unhealthy food), "member activities"(another way to make you pay too much to put your child in camps or swimming classes ect. with unprofessional teenagers who could care less) and personal training (most of the trainers are unhealthy and overweight themselves and don't care, nor do they have any idea of what they are doing) so that you can spend all of your money under one roof!
I know this because I have been to many locations and have been involved with this company for almost six years and have seen firsthand the terrible things that they have done.
They use great tactics to get you to join, like the Beautiful Beginnings services in the spa ( terribly cheap services that leave the service providers-who make only commission- earn pennies for their hard work), a free meal of unhealthy food in the cafe, a free fitness assessment- just to get you to start personal training, among many other things. They do not care about changing lives whatsoever, their employees make hardly any money and do all the dirty work, while upper management sits around, does not tend to any customer issues, and makes tons.(i know this as fact from employees) It is just overall a disgrace in the way that they treat their members and employees.
Please do not join this gym, or "healthy way of life destination" as they like to call it. They will only rip you off, and you will be sure to receive terrible customer service and many issues. It's not worth it, just go join another gym, even a smaller one, that cost a whole lot less, with less hassle and rip offs. On top of that, the place is dirty, who knows what you'll catch there, and they don't even do background checks on employees, so who knows who your dealing with ( I have heard and seen many different situations where employees have been arrested and/or escorted out because they are wanted, committed a crime, dealing drugs & doing them at work ect.
and were still hired by the company because they didn't bother to do a little bit of research.) That could be someone that's making your food, or watching your child, or lifeguarding at the pool, or taking your payments & card info when you join --not good. I could go on and on about all of the different abhorrent things that have taken place, and will continue to, but just take my word for it, you will be much better off without these *** and this awful place in your life.
