You might be working out feeling great and getting the amazing body you always dreamed of, but when it comes to getting out of the situation of cancellation at any cause ends up turning into a nightmare!!!,Riviera fitness are phonies, it maybe easy getting in by signing on that line for unlimited monthly fitness , but it's hard getting out. They will still charge for the next month and then throw in a cancellation fee or with some people the charges still continues. I changed my debit account number information so they won't get another red cent out my A**!!! to avoid them from getting a steal.. I advise you "Don't Seal the Deal!!!!!"

I wanted to join Gold's Gym in January but was told that price would go UP because of all of the weight-loss New Year's resolutions so would be better to join in December. LIE!! Membership for January is $1.00!!! But that is just my initial complaint! I paid all fees upfront for December. This was a Christmas gift to my son and drafts were to come from my checking acct. He just received a letter stating that the acct. was DELINQUENT and would be sent to collections due to an incorrect banking #. The draft came through my acct. last week!!! They have several phone #'s they could call but instead send a collection letter. So far, calls to them have not been returned. I cannot WAIT to get my chance to let them have it!!

I have been trying to cancel a membership with Paramount Acceptance for over a month. When they finally accepted my documents they waited until my payment due date and my credit card had been charged before they let me know my cancellation fee had not yet posted. I have called the supervisor's line more than 30 times and never received a call back. Although I am more than 1000 miles from any possible location they provide services to, they will not refund the monthly payment.
I have attempted to contact anyone higher than a Customer service representative and have only spoken with answering services. I have contacted and filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.
I have been a member of numerous gyms and this is by far the lousiest service and provider I have ever experienced.

Please, if you are interested in joining a gym, DON'T join if Paramount Acceptance is the membership provider. Gym membership managers, please NEVER use this horrible company to conduct membership fees. Paramount Acceptance is a HORRIBLE company. I have been trying to cancel my membership to French Riviera for ONE MONTH because I have moved. They still won't accept any of the documents I have faxed to them PROVING I have moved. This company scams people. NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER use them.

Well i went to sign up at golds and at the time i didnt have a bank account so the trainer said thats ok you can just pay at the counter. Well when my first payment was due i found out i CANT pay at the counter i have to go up to the corporate office to pay. The dick head trainer straight up lied to me. So by the time i get down there to make my payment it was late so guess what than means. Late fee!

So a few days later i get a call from paramount saying he's showing i cancelled my card on file. I explain the situation and he says ok he can send me a statement book and i can just mail in my payments. Im thinking great. Until i get my statements and they are charging me almost twice the rate i signed up for! Bottom line is these guys are crooks. Yea yea read your contract i know, but that thing is the size of a novel. Whos going to read that thing? The gym itself is awesome, but its not worth having to deal with rip off paramount acceptance.

I have tried several times to Cancel my Gold's membership. I waited out the contract and then started. I sent them emails like they requested for the 30 days written notice. I would call and follow up and they never got them. I would verify again and again that I had the email address right. I called them again after the last time and they told me that they could not cancel the membership now. Gold's Corporate had to do it. I called and was put on hold with no answer several times. Today I finally reached someone at Gold's that sounds like they are going to take care of the problem and refund for all of the back months they have billed.

I am so frustrated by this. When you look at Gold's Corporate address on their website they have the main office in Orem and another that is the same address as Paramount Acceptance.

Let me ask you two something, please? You guys really sat down, after the golds gym rep talked and explained the whole contract, and read the the WHOLE entire contract, word for word? BS. You guys are just the lucking ones that haven't had any problems with the company, yet. By the way it is paramount's job to stand by the word of what the gold's gym employees tell you. Not just to collect debt. Twice now I have extended my contract by paying it all up front, as it is cheaper to do so then month by month, and twice now they have started billing for two different accounts. It should be paramount's job to link up the two contracts and void out the expired one. It's F***in common since. Why would I want to pay $40.00, month for month, on one account. While just paid hundreds for a 3 year contract? I'm the only one that can use it. Yes there are SOME paramount rep's that are helpful. However, I literally just called 20 min ago and had a rep lie to me that I wouldn't be paying for the month to month. She straight up lied. She didn't understand my claim and said what the heck with it I'll give him what he wants to hear. Luckily I called back to double check. Now I have to call corporate, even though the one I just called is considered coroporate, and explain myself all over again. What's new? they didn't answer. If I have to pay another dime for the membership that should be closed I am going to punch someone, anyone. It's not right how there buisness works. If they can't stand by what the golds gym sales rep claim or promise then they shouldn't be in buisness.

Since joining Gold's Gym two years ago, I've had to contact this company twice. The first time I decided I wanted to change my billing from a credit card to my bank account. The process was as easy as cake, and I saw the change immediately the next month. Today I called to let them know I was cancelling my gym membership. I read my contract and new it would expire 2 years after I signed it. They referred me to Gold's Gym corporate office, and they told me that because I had a corporate account, I didn't need to call and cancel. It would expire itself. Obviously, you just need to be informed about what you're signing up and the terms of the agreement. Because I knew I had signed up for a 2 year membership, I knew I would have to let the contract expire before I could cancel without a fee. They don't hide this stuff from you. Not only did I read the contract before I signed, but the sales guy was happy to answer all of my questions. It's your problem if you fail to educate yourself and ask the right questions. Maybe not what you want to hear, but hopefully a lesson you'll apply in the future.

Everyone writing a negative review for this company did not likely read their contract before they signed it. Either you can no longer afford it, have missed a payment, got a new credit card and never updated the information, thought you could cancel early but didn't actually read the contract and just listened to the what the gym employee told you, etc. In every case this is YOUR FAULT not Paramount Acceptance's fault. All those leaving comments for this review will be prime examples for us all to view of how ignorant people are in not checking a legal document before signing and then thinking they are right just because they are so frustrated. This company may not always be polite but that is not their job, there job is to collect on those who don't follow or try to argue their way out of their contract. In any case try being nice to customer service reps regardless of situations and you'll see you will get your way and READ YOUR CONTRACTS FOOLS!!

I can no longer afford my gym membership with the french riviera spa in new orleans. I was told when i signed up that i could cancel at anytime i needed to. I was also told that i would be getting charged 30.00 a month, instead it is 45.00 a month. I called to cancel my membership, and the demon wh**e told me that my membership didnt expire until april 2011.
It is useless for me to have a membership that I will not use and cannot afford. I have a FREE gym in my complex that I live in. it is unfair for someone to tell other people that they cannot cancel something unless they are ill or moving 35 miles away from the facility. the damn credit card companys dont even put you through this. they just charge you a cancellation fee. oh p a does too...after you send in all the paperwork.
DO NOT SIGN UP WITH A GYM THAT DEALS WITH THIS COMPANY! THEY WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE A LIVING HELL !!!

I signed up for a 6 month agreement with Golds, tried cancelling bc I hardly go there anymore due to the time I have at home, so I called to cancel, they said "you can pay 25$ to put your acct on hold but you will still be charged 122/mo" I said I just want to end it "You cant, unless you can get someone else to pick up the next 4 months of 122/month. GRRR.... and I get the voice mail. Planet fitness goes for 10/month and no commitment!

Before contacting Paramount to change my account information I read the reviews and went to Gold's website directly and found my local gym and asked how to change or cancel my membership. She gave me Gold's Corporate Number 801-272-8461 where I gave different routing information to her. I informed her about all the bad reviews with Paramount concerning canceling and she informed me the best thing to do is cancel with Gold's directly. Hopefully this helps anyone.

Rip-off company, small print, Gold's Gym no help. 30 day notice is somehow never received via fax, phone call or Gym! Stupid, rude customer service agents. Don't let them have your DEBIT CARD, they never stop charging!

I signed with golds gym with a friend of mine I thought and after I recived my new bank card (WITH THE SAME BANK ####) I had no payments taken out for quite some time then one day going to the gym they said I was hunderds of $$ past due. I called Paramount only to get the phone tag and run a round finally after months went by I just had to pay them. I got married and told my wife to watch her membership and now their duing the same to her what a joke.. People please go to a nother gym you will be much more happier about your bank account.

I have a complaint concerning Paramount Acceptance. I have made 12 payments to this company without any trouble until my credit card they had on file expired.
It expired in Jan 09. I wasn't notified of a problem until March 09.
By this time, my account had accumulated
some $80+ in fees. According to them, they said they had called me on December 10th as a courtesy to remind me of my card expiring. I believe that they actually called my number, but there is no way they left a message of any kind. There is only 2 people living in my house and both of us would be right on taking care of something like this. It is my feeling that they had ever intent of collecting as much in fees as possible before actually sending out a letter on March 12th.
I don't know if this company is Gold's Gym or if Gold's hires them as a finance company. I ended up paying the fees [because I had no choice]but it is my intent to get on any and all blogs crying my tale about Paramount and Gold's Gym. I am very angry about being held up and robbed of $80 and it is legal [according to them]
Thank you,
Deanna Thompson

A horrible and deceptive company with nothing but profit in mind. THEY WILL SCREW YOU. REALLY. Their scam is simple: Make it impossible to cancel the contract. They lie on the phone. They lie to get you to sign up. They lie when they tell you how to end contract. They tell you to send cancel request to the wrong address(es). It is difficult to contact them in any way. Non-helpful and deceitful customer service. Threatening to s u e them is the course I recommend. Also: contact the B B B., FTC and local Chamber of Commerce. Send them loads of Certified letters with return receipts. Lie back to them: Tell them you have become permanently disabled. Stay away from them at all costs. Good luck if you are trying to get away from their evil clutches. They are the reason we hate Gold's Gym. I have never had a more horrible experience with any company ever.

Not only did I get tricked into a 2 yr contract they are not even willing to work with me due to the fact that i loss my job. I called and spoke with one of the rep and she told me that they could not suspend the contract for 6 mos because that wasnt an issue to them and for me to keep trying to make the payments I told her the lady at the fitness place told me that ya'll would help me out. I hate this company and would not recommended this company to anyone if you see their name on a contract do not sign please dont this will be the biggest mistake of your life!! man i cant wait 2 get out of this contract.

I deeply regret the day I got involved with this company. Yes, the gym is a great facility and worth the advertised price. However, your payments are delt with by Paramount aka The Devil. They have double charged me on the same day and then taken weeks to fix the charges! They have 'locked' my account multiple times for mistakes I was not responsible for. If you are late for a payment, even a little, they will treat you like a scam artist trying to cheat the system. This company is horrible and I do not understand how these people live with themselves. Avoid entering ANY contract that works with Paramount, they will do everything in their power to make you miserable!

Wow, i have never in my entire life dealt with such a horrible company. The only reason this stupid company is still in business is because they charge such ridiculous amounts for fees and late payments that golds gym and the other gyms will always get payment. It doesnt matter that the economy and everybody in it is struggling right now... Ugh, i hate them!!!

The lady that was helping me was like no, your contract doesnt end until jan 2010... i forgot i upgraded my acct to a vip around dec making my contract longer... anyways, she is like you better pay your bill ASAP or its going to go to federal. I told her i would rather deal with federal then with her company any day....

Screw this company!!!! :( :( :( :( :(

I signed up with Golds Gym and had all the facts. It was $100 to cancel the contract if my employement changed. About 9 months later my employement changed and I called to cancel the contract. I paid and figured all was well......... UNTIL 2 months later when my account was getting charged again. I can't get it to stop. Everytime I fix it, I begin getting charged again. Nobody will call me back when I call Paramount. I am sent to a voicemail. When someone answers, they ship you off to someone elses voicemail. I think, they just transfer people back and forth to eachother all day. THEY ARE HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!

First when you want to sign up at the gym French Rivera the sales people are very nice and they lie to you so you can sign a two year contract by you signing the contract, they get commission and they tell you that if you move over fifty miles away, you just have to call and they will cancel your contract. I moved 500 miles away and have been fighing back and fourth with them for almost three months so they can cancel my contract they are still charging me every month. I've called several times, have sent over 5 faxes and every time I call it's a new excuse to why they haven't cancelled my contract. When i call and mention about the cancellation, they hang up the phone or keep me on hold or just transfer me to a voice mail where no one ever returns my phone call .... I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone!!!! It is a hugh mistake!

Golds gym was great but unfortunately they use Paramount Acceptance for there billing company! I will never have a Golds Gym membership again for this reason!!... This is the worst company I have ever dealt with. I recently moved out of state and I really got the run around on trying to cancel my membership. In all it should have cost me $99 for the cancelation but I spent about $187. They lie, steal, and cheat you out of your money. Beware of their sneaky ways of getting you in... When you move and try to cancel they will make you pay anyway. After sending your proof and payment, they find ways to continue to charge you. Monitor you accounts and watch you credit because they will try to find ways to screw you! Good Luck to all you!
