This company has changed hands but the service has not. My friend and I joined on Jan 27, 2012. We cancelled the very next day (3 day cancelation policy) and didn't get all of our money back until march 30, 2012. Two months to get back almost $800. I have never had to deal with that kind of service. Would not recommend this company to anyone. Ever!

I have been to Achieve with a friend and was considering joining, but after I read these reviews I don't want to step foot in this place. It reminds me of PEAK fitness. about 5 years ago I tried to canel my membership several times through PEAK, I ended up canceling my debit card so they would stop taking my money only to have them send my account to a collections agency and it go against my credit. I eventually settled with a lawyer just to get it off my credit report!! Thanks for letting my know there is a 3 year contract. I learned that if I can't pay in full for a year or six months, I simply will NOT join! My advice, don't give anyone access to your accounts at all!!

Achieve Fitness is a wonderful gym! I love the classes & all the helpful hints I get some the employees and trainers to help me focus on my work-outs, they really try to help me stay motivated! I love the daycare an all the employees they are extremely friendly and I trust my children with them 100%. The employees are always nice and try to do whatever it takes to make the customers feel like they are number one! I would recommend Achieve Fitness to everyone! Best gym around by far!

Zach is the epitome of a slimy salesman. When going over the contract, we kept talking about 12 months, but in the fine print he wrote in 24. Now when I want to cancel, he says he'll need another $500 to let me out. After that conversation, he now never returns any phone calls, and when I go into the gym, he immediately pulls someone into his office and is in a 'meeting'. He is an unprofessional cheat. The gym itself is mediocre, with inconsistency in the classes and cleanliness. If you're there just to work out, there are better places you can go for much less money.

I joined Achieve Fitness several months ago and I couldn't be more pleased. They offer the classes I want and the instructors are very professional, helpful and enthusiastic. The gym always has that polished look, they have the latest

Telling a young person that you NEED their debit card as a form of ID and then charging them $55 for a 7 day FREE trial that they told you they weren't interested in is NOT a good way to drum up business..neither is the bait and switch methods used to get people to come in..."You've WON a gift card" only to find out that it is NOT a gift card but money off an unwanted, unsolicited membership.

I have been a member a little over a year of my 3 year contract. While I personally don't have a problem with the contract I do have a problem with the gym upkeep. The sauna element has been damaged since before Christmas and when Zach is told about it he comes up with excuse after excuse. Also, I have came in to do classes several times only to find the class has been canceled because someone quit or didn't show up. I can only speculate it is because they didn't get paid.
Long story short I like the gym but think it would do a lot better if Zach were not running it. A lot of the other reviews on here pretty much sums him up. Personality flaws aside, I would just be happy to see things get repaired in a timely manner but with someone in charge who is only after money I don't see things getting better. One can only hope the Gym gets sold out to someone with better business practices.

Wow, you would never imagine that the good reviews were written by an employee. Joke, they pretty much all rant on about Zak, just like a immature douche that is trying to turm around the bad reviews but cant help but to still toot his own horn. If your trying to get in shape or just flex your fitness this certainly is not the gym for you. A movie room? If I wanted to watch movies or tv I would keep my butt at home. If I wanted a bunch of empty promises and broken crap I could go get that anywhere for free, why pay for it at Achieve? Three year contract, there is a reason why. They know you will want to stop coming after a month so they make sure they can gouge you for two years and eleven more months....and the Chris Grubbs guy who supposedly bought the complex, what a short drug abusing douche as well. Thinks he is a Jersey hustler and toughts about owning the place as a method of trying to get laid when he isnt high or trying to scam money and drugs from people.

I wished I had read the reviews BEFORE signing on the dotted line. I went with a friend during our lunch break, what a mistake. We were rushed through the whole thing. Yeah my fault that I didn't read everything before signing. I found out it was a 3 year agreement,which I did not want. The equipment is nice when it is working, but doesn't look like it gets cleaned. Several lockers have been broken into, but nothing fixed. It took my complaining to get my two free training sesions, what a joke! The employees do have their favs and more than likely you are not it The sad part is that I was looking at my bank statement and found an extra charge for their enhancement fee. Supposed to help with the equipment and such.....not! They are milking everyone to death. Please stay away from this place. Join the Y, at least it has what is offered and it is a month by month term.

Over the years I have been a member at practically every gym in Cabarrus County and Achieve Fitness by far exceeds them all. The facility is always clean, the equipment kept in great condition and the staff is great. Zac and the other employees at Achieve make it a point to learn each member's name and truly care about their health and wellness goals...as well as helping them succeed in reaching them!

I'll keep it simple. I joined Achieve before the completion of the building. I started my workouts with a personal trainer Mike Krug, by the way who is the best ever. With every little to work with, Mike make it happen for me, as I was finishing my first year after breast cancer. Then came the opening of the Gym itself. Yes, there have been concerns and several changes in management, but never have I been unhappy with the service, equipment or if I have been in need of information. Zach does his best to meet the needs of everyone, if they let him know. He is not a mind reader. The best feature of the gym other than Mike, is the movie room. WOW! This is a step up from anyother gym around. I'm happy. As long as I can afford to stay, I will

Although Achieve is a decent looking gym, it is NOT worth the money! They tried to bombard me with a high pressure sale on the spot. 3 year contract!!! That is absolutely ridiculous. I am military and cannot get locked into a contract that long. The alternative month to month pricing is just as absurd. While I was doing my tour, there was a poor young lady waiting for a class to start. The guy showing me around said that the girl who was supposed to be teaching the class quit at 10 pm the night before via a "call-in". WTF?!? Although some of these positive comments maybe valid as everyone experiences the same things differently; I seriously question the validity of some of these comments. As in if they are truly from patron or employees...or perhaps..EMPLOYEE (singular)

Achieve Fitness is the best gym I have ever been to. The manager Zack Riera is awesome and helps me out with my workouts anytime I ask him. The equipment is brand new and always works. The facility's are VERY clean. The childcare is awesome and has great employees working in it. Every time I walk into achieve fitness I am greeted by at least two employees if not more. The employees are also always walking around cleaning and re racking weights. Another thing that is great about the gym is every time I come in I am offered free training sessions and i am always receiving help.

I have been a member of this gym for 6 months. The facility is always clean (definitely the best in the area) & the staff is always nice. They go out of their way to speak to you & check up on how you are. I highly recommend Achieve!

I've been an active member of Achieve since the doors were opened. I am well pleased of how the gym is being ran and can't figure out all the negative comments. As far as contracts go, you are responsible for reading them BEFORE you sign your name. And the management there do a great job at running the gym. Zack has worked with our church designing a fitness program as well as a church outreach program. So if you are looking for a world class, clean, friendly, family oriented gym, I would recommend you to check out Achieve Fitness for yourself.

I made the mistake of not reading the contract when I signed. I was promised I'd be able to opt out at any time. When I moved away, I found out this wasn't true and I would have to pay through September, 2010. Well, it's October and my card was charged again. I know it's going to be an awful ordeal to get out of this. I'm buying a house soon, and these crooks will probably hurt my credit when I stop payment. Time to lawyer up!

Philip H said Peak wasn't going out of business. It is now ZX Fitness. It was sold. Make your own decision based on what you want, not what others say. What the employee says is not necessarily what you will get. Not everyone is honorable. I looked at Achieve. The facility looks nice and clean too. All gyms have certain hours and days, for child care. The only gym I know of that is simple to cancel is Sportscenter. It is a 30 day notice. It is expensive to work out there but very elite. It has everything.. There is a small gym downtown, Your Gym. It is about $20.00 to work out there. There is a free P90X class downtown at the dive shop. P90X is awesome. Hard work quick results. There is a gym for everyone. Some gyms say "open 24 hours". Ask is it 7 days a week. Go work out for three months. Your life, mindset and physical appearance will change.You can pay some gyms what you want... bargain. Nearly all gyms will debit your account unless you pay in full, which usually means you pay less for the year Don't sign anything before taking the contract home and READING it.There is a 72 hour clause in the state of north carolina to cancel any contract. Just send an overnight certified return receipt letter of cancellation, stating you wish to cancel within the 72 hour time frame. It has to arrive within the 72 hours. Also make sure you bring a copy of the certified letter to the gym, stating that you wish to cancel and it's within however many hours. Get them to sign or stamp it. Be firm AND kind. It is the law to allow you to cancel. Let them know you are aware of this. Don't be at their mercy. I wouldn't buy ANYTHING, without knowledge of my purchase. Good luck and God Bless. As for the fellow with the heart condition, bring a note from your Dr.. I put three stars but can't really say. I am not a member. In order for this comment page to show, I had to put stars.

I read the other reviews and was concerned about the negative comments but decided to check out Achieve for myself. Achieve fitness is everything I want in a gym! LOADS of equipment, clean facilities, great classes and all at a good price. I was a member at the Sportcenter in the past and am very pleased with Achieve. Even during peak times there is plenty of equipment to go around. I have many friends who have switched to Acheive also and are extremely happy with the staff, terms and facilities. I would recommend them highly!
I paid up front but I saw the contract that a few reviewers have complained about...it's a contract...never sign a contract without reading and agreeing to everything in it. (Pretty simple) There was no flim flam, slight of hand, shifty promises, high pressure etc. Achieve is a great gym at a great price!

I was lied to with ommision about my contract. I was led to believe there was no term agreement only a month to month after I had signed I see a 36 month agreement on it. Then Zack the manager is a hack. He is a boy running around with absolutly no leadership skill at all. He is more concerned with
keeping his handful of buddies happy than with keeping up with the club. I wouldnt let this boy run a lemonade stand. This club has so much potential but due to poor management and shaddy underhand buisness practices I would stay clear of it.

If you're thinking of joining this gym, DON'T.

There's a reason they require a contract and prefer you to use a debit system; they know you will want to cancel and this is their only shot at financially locking you in.

Regardless of what they say during the sales pitch (and these are salespeople, don't kid yourselves), you will never, ever be able to cancel the contract for any reason whatsoever.

Take a walk, play with the kids or pets, do lawn work, dance. It's all free.

I have trained in many gyms over the past 20+ years and have to say Achieve is one of the best! Very clean facility with a nice open floor plan. Plenty of equipment--even during peak hours,there is still enough so there is little to no wait for a machine. The locker room/sauna area is super clean and spacious. Some trainers are more helpful than others but all are willing to answer questions and offer assistance.
Those in management (Zach in particular) are always friendly and helpful...despite having many members, they remember your name and are interested in your fitness goals, no matter your age or gender!
I really like this gym and have no plans to ever go elsewhere.
Pricing is competitive and you get a good gym with well-maintained and up to date equipment for an excellent price.

Gym is nice but as always even if you move out of state and pay extra for a month to month contract, it is a nightmare to cancel! It as made the whole experience miserable. Make sure they write on the contract what they promise!

I have been a member of Achieve for nearly a year now and had nothing but great experience with them. After been a member for a month I convinced a lot of my friends to sign up as well and were all there on a regular basis.
I myself am kind of shocked at the comments left on here. I have never had any issues with the staff they have always been friendly and courteous, always willing to help in any way they can.
The facility itself is great. The gym is huge compared to other gyms I was previously a member of. Tons of workout equipment and even has a sauna. If you hate running on treadmills or working out on stationary bikes they even have a theater room, helps keep the mind off the stress of the workout.
I think Tricia is having a little bit of a personal issue. Please don't bring the gym into the situation with your husband. He is mature enough to know what he is doing so don't blame the facility about it.

If I had a time machine I would go back in time and join Achieve Fitness instead of Peak Fitness. As soon as it becomes possible I will be joining Achieve. Philip H. is the manager at Peak Concord. One of his associates told me I could drop to a lower rate at any time without medical documenation if I needed to (this was important to me as I have a serious heart problem). I have since needed to drop to a lower rate and Philip H. refuses to honor the agreement his employee made with me. He even told me if I could contact her myself to prove it then maybe he'd do something, but until then it wasn't his problem. Peak Fitness is deplorable and dishonest. Anywhere has to be better than Peak. I would go to Achieve if I were you.

I have been a member for two years and am quite appauled at the comments Im reading about Achieve, management and staff. I have had nothing but positive experiences with Zack and his staff. I once had a problem with billing and had contacted the billing dept several times and the situation wasnt handled. One request to Zack and he handled it within the same day. I also had an instance of a person attempting to steal my purse from the locker room. When it was brought to Zacks attention, he dropped what he was doing and handled it to my satisfication. I workout several times a week and have never heard Zack acting inappropriatley to anyone. Reading the nasty comments written leaves me wondering why none of these people complaining are leaving a phone number, address or even an accurated name so that the alligations can be properly investigated. Seems to me they must be made up, because I know that if I had issues like those listed with a facility, Im going to leave information so that upper management can follow up(unless of course its all lies).
I tell all my friends about Achieve and how everyone is so pumped up about getting in shape. Perhaps those that are so unhappy are that way due mainly to the fact that they arent putting their "all" into getting healthy and so therefore arent seeing good results. -melissa T

Get rid of ZACK and the gym would be great! Wouldn't it be nice to walk in and do your workout without being accosted by the guy that thinks the gym is his personal harem. I just want to work out!

I have been a member for over 2 years now. I didn't use it much the first year, but I'm there at least 3-4 days a week now. Yes, there are occasional issues, but overall it's good. The women's locker room sometimes smells like a sewer and/or one or more toilets don't work. I do like the movie room, the nice and open feel, and the sauna; however, I was unhappy to find out that my contract was incorrectly sent to the managing company as a 3-year contract instead of 2 years. I talked back and forth with the same person from National Fitness, their parent company, for the past two months to fix the problem. I even faxed and mailed a copy of my contract (which we all need to keep for this kind of reason), but they stated it was invalid because the initials of the club employee did not match a current employee. He is no longer there, but he was there when I signed on. I finally drove to the Concord facility to get help, and I was told it was fixed by that employee on the computer to my account. As of right now, I'm being charged month-to-month. I just hope when I decide to quit, they honor it. Contracts always suck!

I am a current member, and I have to say that I love it!!! the equipment is very nice, they offer a variety of classes with great instructors, and they have a new Zumba class that I just love!!
The bathrooms are always clean and the facility is very well maintained.
Everybody that works there is very polite, and they make sure to say hi and ask you how you are doing.
I recommend Achieve to anybody!! any age!!! it's great! me & my husband love it, not to mention we've met great friends there.

We signed up with Achieve Fitness in January while it was still being built and were promised daycare for our three children any time they were opened. They were supposed to open in April, but the facility wasn't ready until July. When we started going, we found out the daycare was only available on certain days and certain hours. I wanted to cancel because of this, but because the guy didn't SPECIFY that in my contract, I can't prove he told me that. I can't cancel my service and my husband and I never go. We have probably been 10 times in the 2 years we have had it. I wrongly assumed I would only have to keep my contract through April of this year coming up, but was informed by the NOT-SO-FRIENDLY people I spoke to a year ago that I would have to stay in it through July....I hate that I am wasting the money every month and getting no use out of it. I hate that they get to charge me an administration fee every December. I don't like going because nobody is helpful at all unless you pay for a trainer. The equipment was great when we were going....but it definitely wasn't enough to keep us coming. I can't wait until July 2010 when I won't have to pay them another dime and I would definitely NOT recommend anybody sign on to this gym. They will find even the smallest loophole to keep receiving your money even if you aren't happy and I will NEVER sign another contract with a facility again because of them!

I can't speak of the gym itself, because I've never stepped foot in it. I manage the Peak Fitness in Concord. Although I'm new to the Concord location, I've been with Peak Fitness for 7 years. I've been here at the Concord location for nearly 2 months, and I find it funny, yet sad, that every time I speak to someone who's at Achieve or who's toured Achieve, how often they tell me that Zack tells them "oh, you don't want to join Peak Fitness. They're going out of business". There's absolutely no truth in that statement; just the opposite actually. I just find it very sad that Zack is not any better of a salesman/person than to tell flat out lies about his competitor. I've heard it from too many different people for it to be hearsay. So, please (to anyone who reads this and still goes there) tell Zack to grow up, get a spine, and quit his story telling.

I moved away and tried to cancel my membership but didn't move more than 30 miles away so was unable to cancel it. I ended up paying for one whole year and not using it but honestly it's really my fault since i signed up for a three year contract knowing teh only way to get out was a move further than 30 miles. As far as the facility goes I am extremely happy with it (now that i'm back to using it) and i go out of my way to go there with a 30 minute commute to teh gym. The facility is definitely worth it. Great hammerstrength equipment, tons of cardio machines and lots of room to do your own thing if your setting up your own little circuit or something.

OMG a living nightmare is what Achieve fitness Concord has been to me and my best friend.I signed up with Tiffany(which is no longer with the company thank God)but anyways it was for the biggest looser comp. My experience has been nothing but a pain in my ass. Don't get me wrong the facility is amazing the up to date equipment, modern lavatory, and sauna. Please please please do not waist your money on a membership because they have their favorites. I've been waiting on a personal trainer for the past 2 damn months and still am waiting to this day.They must learn to recite what they say to new customers because i was told the same BS by 3 different people that work there Im telling you they are all robots lol lol lol. The customer service skills suck ass. O and please don't get me started on Zack. Zack is Wack.They are out to get your money and don't care to what extent they have to go to get it. All of the workers have been taught to suck the last penny out of any new individual that walks through the door. He has his head so far up his own ass 99.9% of the time he's conversating with his own damn organs lol. If i see him when i arrive i usually leave and miss out on my workout. He is a poor example of leadership. He favors his friends and can give a rats ass about the ones he don't know. I wouldn't recommend this Gym to a wild animal. Unless you like being F***** by an over tailored Gym manager that's as fake as his inflatable muscles lol. My Tip to others is run run the other way and never return to Achieve fitness unless you plan on bringing your petroleum jelly. Play safe lol lol lol lol lol lol. The devil's playpen.

Like other reviewers, I have tried to cancel my membership with Achieve Fitness for over a year. I did go so far to close my bank account, and still they are relentless. Now they are threatening to send me to collections. My sister-in-law is having a similar issue. This is a scam and a rip off and the worst experience I have ever had in dealing with a gym.

I have been trying for a month to cancel my membership and have even vernighted my paperwork to them in Utah and they say they "lost" it, it had been signed for! So now it's twice I was wrongly charged $40 in overnighting fees and now five overdraft fees due to a payment I was told that would not be taken out!
Even when I was going when I went to see a trainer they never showed up, this happened three times.
I'm now going to be talking to the B.B.B.

The facility at Achieve Fitness is great. I was impressed with the equipment and the locker rooms. But that's the end of the "good news". This is the biggest scam going. I signed up for a 16 week trial (paid). At the end of the 16 weeks they said all I had to do was submit in writing that I was canceling my membership. That's exactly what I did. I met every requirement in order to cancel but they refused to cancel my membership and conveniently would not return my phone calls, and no one would ever talk to me about the situation when i would go in. I had several friends that joined the trial as well and had the same difficulty. One is still dealing with the problem a year later. The only way I could get out of the situation was to close my bank account...such a pain. Beware of this place. Do not let the facility fool you.
