Bailey's Gym: Deceitful And How They Take Advantage Of People!

Earlier this morning I logged into my Bailey's Gym account to see if I could cancel online. My intent was to cancel and choose this other "more friendly" gym I had my eyes on. I thought things would go smoothly, but they didn't. They forced me to pay for a month I won't even be there for, or use, just to cancel. They called it an "outstanding balance"! And no, I'm NOT under contract.

If I really had an outstanding balance, then why do I have club privileges from 2/17/2024 until 3/16/2024? A month that has not started yet... Wouldn't my membership privileges be up just before the next month began? (YEP!)

In this video below I explain everything.

The screenshots that are in the video, which prove I was wrongly forced to pay Bailey's Gym for a month I won't be there.

When I first joined Bailey's Gym it was 2.5 years ago. I was interested in losing weight. But after I signed the papers, which was a 1 or 2 year contract (I think), I got a weird vibe after I talked to some staff. I talked to one of the trainers that was about to show me around. I mentioned I have mild scoliosis in my lower lumar region abnd moderate disc degeneration there that has been there very much all my life, but only recently became obvious. I was asking for advice on how to start out so I could  build strength back up in my back and stomach so I would go back to it just being an issue that's there but didn't really feel much of. The trainer was very discouraging. He told me that they would have one of their trainers with medical expertise call and talk to me about advise on how to start out. I was advised to wait before I would start out. So I sat at home and waited. I called a few weeks after not hearing back. I was given some lame excuse that I should wait.

 

Finally I had enough waiting and decided to go. But when I did, I saw an ex of mine there. One I wanted to avoid. So I left before entering the facility. I had decided I would wait to go there until I could figure out around when he goes, so I would know when not to go. But sadly his gym hours were all over the place. But I had heard that my ex was being forced to move. So I was like "I'll wait until he moves". That took AWHILE. During that time I pondered just cancelling and joining another gym. I called Bailey's Gym and talked to someone that told me I couldn't cancel and was under contract. I mentioned that more than a year has passed, which is what contracts are for. I got hung up on after I was told I'd have to wait until 2 years had passed. One friend of mine told me to just deal with it for now and go until my time was up and then cancel and join another gym. I would have but considering how I was treated over the phone, I decided it was a bad idea. Especially with staff like that. My friend @Angie had reminded me that I never should have joined and it was a big mistake. She told me that when she cancelled, she had to pay for an entire month she would not be able to in any way, shape, or form use.

 

And now here we are at present time. So much going through my mind. But one thing is for certain, that won't change, is I regret ever even considering Bailey's Gym. Was I ever under a 2 year contract like I was falsely lead to believe? What the heck is going through to minds of those associated with Bailey's to think it is okay to extort money from people under the guise of "outstanding balance"? Again as I said above... "If I really had an outstanding balance, then why do I have club privileges from 2/17/2024 until 3/16/2024? A month that has not started yet... Wouldn't my membership privileges be up just before the next month began? (YEP!)".

 

Bailey's Gym, powered by Chuze Fitness, needs to make this right. They can do that by giving me the $52.68 they owe me.

They did the same thing to me awhile ago. That's why I kept discouraging you from joining that gym. Luckily I eventually got my money back, but not before they attempted to shame me and make me feel like it was my fault.
