Fitness Clubs, Gyms, and Memberships
Like a lot of health or fitness clubs, Crunch Waterfront operates on a membership basis. But the compliant for this class action claims that the club did not obey laws governing health club memberships and/or renewing such memberships without the members’ approval.
It’s understandable that companies aren’t happy about class actions filed against them. Some fight the charges; others change their procedures. But the complaint for this one alleges that Town Sports International (TSI) berated and/or barred two customers who filed one. Both this and the original class action claim that TSI sold “Passport” memberships that purported to offer membership to all of TSI’s gyms, but that members were still denied access to certain locations unless they paid additional fees. This complaint also appears to cite consumer protection statutes in more states.
