I joined in 2011 or 2012
In 2016 I paid 1000 per month for 3 days a week of personal training.
Trainers would change if they could not work in my schedule. Fine with that.
Today the original trainer was there and took time away from a person he was training to correct and criticize my actual technique.
I said to him that I'm about to leave as I was finishing up my routine and that he has a client and I don't need his input.
He became angry and told me he hopes he never sees me in that gym again, and don't come back.
I couldn't believe I was hearing this bs from this so called professional trainer... was it a threat? What will happen to me if I return. I felt unsafe and threatened.
I was going to go as I was leaving anyway, I couldn't let it go after all these years this was the worst.
I went to the front desk but two of the managers were busy selling their bs training packages to people who looked older than me.
I'm not there to be a body builder, just maintain my good health into my retirement years. I'm definitely not at that gym to be verbally abused and possibly threatened by some thug.
One of the managers asked a younger guy at the desk to go see what I needed.
I told him I'd like to have that trainer repeat to management what he said to me.
The younger employee confronted the trainer and with clients all around us the trainer didn't even blink an eye and began his nasty abuse all over again and even added that I've been working out all these years and look at him, he hasn't changed a bit.
Could have been a compliment if it came from anyone else.
Needless to say this all went nowhere and when I went back to the front desk and asked to cancel my membership I was told they couldn't do that and I would have to come back next week and ask someone else.
La fitness is now called esporta and I felt that i should post this to add to what I see are loads of complaints.
I've learned a valuable lesson, if a muscle head oaf talks to me at a gym, run for the exit.
Oh, and do not look for ethical management style at La fitness or esporta or whatever they call themselves.
Thanks for reading. And Buyer Beware
