Cancelled my beneficieries contract after two months
In August 2019 i signed up a contract at Planet fitness in Brakpan.The sales lady gave me and my sister's daughter a special offer as it was a women's day special.I signed the contract and was informed that my sister daughter could gym with me under the same contract.She was even given a tag.Two months into our contract she was blocked and i was told we have to renew her contract as her contract expires.I demanded to speak to the manager and he told me its the companies policy that she have to be my daughter to enable her to gym under my contract otherwise she have to sign up a new contract.I told him that the sales lady was fully aware that she was not my daughter when we signed the contract two months prior and she did not mention that its against the companies policy.He also said she is off sick and can't defend herself.I said then i want to cancel the contract as this is not what i signed up for.He coldly told me to phone in to cancel my contract if i wanted to and also informed me that i will be liable for the cancellation cost.I am very dissapointed in the way the matter was handled by the manager and i feel i was tricked into signing a contract.Why was i only informed two months after the contract was signed.I urgently need someone to investigate and give me feedback regarding this matter

Signed my contract without my knowledge
I wanted to join, they took my details to be signed onto the wrong membership. Money is not deducted out of my account. I call to query and my cases just get closed with no feedback!!!

Planet Fitness - Worse ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am a new member at Planet Fitness Brakpan. I had a free month membership but on the 1st of the month they started to debit my account. I have phoned head office so many times and yet they did not fix the problem. They told me that they will refund the incorrect amount and correct our debit order amount, but again they took the same amount. After 3 months still the same problem. They actually how me money but now its time to pay a levy fee of R399.00 after 3 months of your contract. That payment is for the maintance of the gym after we pay so much already a month. They lie to their members and just don't care. I am so fed up with this gym and will never in my life recommend Planet Fitness to anyone. If you ask them to phone you back they never do it and i have to waste my own time to keep phoning them. The call centre never gets back to you. And they now refuse us to enter the gym of a levy fee.

The worst service ever!
They take money out of your account just as they please. There is no service at the "call center". Wish I never joined! How is it that a company like this has so much complaints and cancellations and still do business?

Poor Service
I have joined planet fitness in August 2018 we agreed that money should be debited on 15th of every month but to my surprise money is debited on the 1st,25th,3rd or twice a month.I have tried to fix it,nothing has changed.They have sent me messages that they are taking legal action,i don't know why because im up to date eith my payments,maybe one should take legal action against them.
Ceo if ghix company need to act!!!

Most pathetic service ever!!!!!
I am a new member at Planet Fitness Moreleta Park. The sales consultant lied to us about the contract fees and after we signed the contracts she went and changed that amounts without our knowledge. I have phoned head office so many times and yet they did not fix the problem. They told me that they will refund the incorrect amount and correct our debit order amount, but again they took the same wrong amount. They lie to their members and just don't care. I am so fed up with this gym and will never in my life recommend Planet Fitness to anyone. If you ask them to phone you back they never do it and i have to waste my own time to keep phoning them.

Awful Service
I’ve been a member at Planet Fitness from December 2018, at first, it was an amazing experience. It felt like home away from home, a place to unwind, a place to just be at peace after a hectic shift at work or a kick start to your day. A place that is supposed to give you that extra bit for the day…

But, unfortunately that is not what my experience at Planet Fitness was like. It was disappointing to see that gym fees are so high, but it’s not as good as the Roodeport one, it’s just…basic.
There’s not much interesting to do at the gym and it’s very limited as to workouts.

There are various costs that suddenly pop up, firstly the fees for the month are already killing, then there’s so many other additional fees… for what exactly as it’s not one of those top-notch gyms, maybe just has a high name.

When signing my gym contract I was given that card for a tog bag, was explained that it runs through 8 weeks, I did bring to their notice that I work shifts, unlike normal workers, if I’m lucky I get around 2-4 days off for the month, I was told that it’s fine.
On completing my 16 workouts, I go to claim my bag and was told I’m a day late, technically just hours late, as embarrassing as it was, I pleaded with sales manager saying that I did explain to the consultant that I work shifts and I’m not exactly a day late, it’s technically 2 hours, but I was ignored, I sat and waited, requested to please speak to her again… but she blatantly ignored me and wasted my time!

My point here is not about the bag, my point is about the customer service,
1. You do not disrespect a customer- that’s a rule of customer service
2. I informed the consultant that I might not be able to come every day, and being a few hours late, I don’t see an issue
3. How does Planet Fitness expect me to give a good review or refer a friend???
4. Being unhappy, how do you expect me to come back and train?

Ever since the 04.02.2019, I’ve lost hope in coming back to Planet Fitness, it was the worst experience ever. I’ve been a member at Virgin Active and have never been treated that way.

Firstly, does anyone work at Head Office - Both Rivonia and Bedfordview head offices don't answer their phones or return calls?
Secondly, what is it with Planet Fitness that they refuse to accept that members give notice to cancel memberships and continue charging fees after termination?
Looking at all the questions on this page, which have not been answered, clearly, this is how PF rolls. But I am tenacious and will get this resolved!!!
