Once you join, you can NEVER, NEVER LEAVE!!
I've been a member since 1998.
Last month I realized they're still taking $19/month from my checking account.
I called ABC financial and asked to cancel my membership.
I was informed I needeed to send a certified letter to these
jerks and give a 30 day notice.
I asked when that started and was told in 2005.
I said I never agreed nor signed that contract and was told I needed to provide a copy of my original agreement (From 1998)
HOW DESPERATE ARE THESE PEOPE TO KEEP TAKING MY $19/MONTH?
Whatever happened to goodwill, fair business practices, etc?

Terrible place, don't be fooled. The man running this place is obviously taking advantage of the "easy targets". The Latino pop. is going to this gym because they say "No you don't need a social" and he is ripping them all off with fees such as $100. to join and $50.00. And as far as a real "work out" that Jessica H. (which I'm sure is a fake profile the staff made) well I couldn't say that I ever had one. What I did have was the tread mill stop while I was running (and the person next to me). A girl had to keep coming back to flip the switch to the circuit. Oh, and one day as I was leaving there was a HUGE fight in the parking lot with two kids that go to the classes here.Evident enough to see that these kids are also being taught discipline.LMAO

can't comment on the cleanliness or anything, but when you decide to cancel, be prepared for a battle. Claudia is a complete Witch and told me she loves going after people to collect money after cancellation. She was unprofessional and harassing and unless you want to deal with a whole bunch of crap when you try to cancel, I would pick another gym, any other gym. Their business practices are highly questionable. Read the contract if you decide to go - make sure you know all the details. they will string you along and string you along until it's costing you a ton of $$$$. BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY. When/if you decide to cancel, make sure you write in the letter to the finance company (send certified, return receipt requested) that you no longer authorize any money to be debited from your account by them. That will stop the finance company. Then you just have to deal with Claudia. My condolences

This is the worst gym I have ever went to. I signed up for a year (not listening to the reviews) and thought I would give it a try. This is the most disgusting gym I have ever seen. The jacazuzzi has muck film floating in it ALL THE TIME, the equipment is never wiped down by the staff, the locker rooms smell like a rotten armpit mixed with a scent of pee.. the compnay will rope you into a contract for a year and then when you try to cancel they will tell you this huge list of things to do to cancel. Once you get their finance compnay on the line they will tell you that it is in your contract that you have to give a WRITTEN 30 day notice to cancel (my notice keeps getting lost- how convenient) So I am STILL paying for this ^&$#&^% membership TRYING to cancel it AFTER paying for a year like I agreed to. THEY KEEP CHARGING ME!! I dont want bad credit so I guess the next step is to go corner the owner then an attorney. BOTTOM LINE: there are so many GOOD gyms in esco. THIS IS THE WORST. BELIEVE THE REVIEWS. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY.

I was a member off and on for a couple of years, and it is sad to see someone who could corner the market in fitness corner their customers into contracts. The staff is mostly apathetic or friends of the owner. I had a month-to-month contract and had to send a "certified" letter to financing company in Arkansas to cancel. You also have to give 30-day notice. The bathrooms are nasty, the equipment is old; plan on something getting stolen out of your locker...this is a sad, sad, establishment that I would NEVER recommend to anyone.

I am still laughing at the nonsense that gets posted on these sites. They make insinuations as if they are real and do so in the midst of their so called anonymity. The Health Club is as strong as vibrant as ever! We have a brand new 22 ft Ring from Hard Rock MMA and a 22 foot cage for the athletes to train in. We host one of the stronger kids programs in Escondido and we have an even larger selection of classes starting in 2011. Our First event of the 2011 season will be on February 26 and will feature some of the best Amateur talent in all of So California. Also what is also amusing to me is the classic hits about my stature. I would invite any of these so called disgruntled members to train with me for one day to see of they could keep up! You guys keep writing nonsense and my club will keep producing undefeated fighters, boxers and serious workouts! Don't believe what you read, just come down to the club and see for yourself!!!!

Suprised this place is still running. I agree that the maintanance fee is a HUGE JOKE. They think this place is some kind of "classy" gym with the attitudes there including the owners.But they could care less about what happens to their members or even what it looks like in there. The bathrooms in jail are probably better and cleaner. Signed up have tried to cance; but it's impossible.

I was a member for five years. Still am as they say since I never jumped through all of their hurdles in order to cancel my membership.

Here's a full post on my account of being at this gym for so long. It deals with stealing, the gym being terribly kept up, and serious things like REAL sexual harassment going unnoticed...

http://bobbyearle.com/blog/escondido-sport-and-fitness-club-scams-steals-money-doesnt-take-care-of-equipment/

But yeah, so many things were broken and never fixed over that time. They stole money out of my account that was no where in our agreement/contract -- and they are still trying to find a way to do it again even though I haven't gone there in a year and they haven't charged me monthly fees for a while now.

This place is as shady as it comes. Do yourself a favor and get 2 years at 24 hour fitness for $300 from Costco. So much better.

How about using some of that "maintenance fee" to buy aerobic equipement that actually works?? Over half of the treadmills at this club are broken and have been for years. I suspect the money is being used to pay for property taxes and to stay out of bankruptcy because of the poor maintenance of this club. The $35. annual maintenance fee is a joke.

Escondido Sport & Fitness offers a great kick boxing class that lasts an hour twice a week! It feel so energitic after taking it and I can feel & see results in my body! You don't have to be a memeber of the gym either!
