24 Hour Fitness Membership Cancellation Lawsuit


A lawsuit has been filed against the popular work out company 24 Hour Fitness.  The lawsuit states the 24 Hour Fitness charged customers an extra month of due after they cancelled their membership.  This is for customers who signed up for the “Unlimited Guest Services” membership.  The lawsuit states:

“that when members cancel their membership, 24 Hour Fitness makes “one additional EFT ‘tap’ to the bank or credit card accounts” of the member, and then applies the last-month dues it already has collected to the month after that. By doing so, the class action lawsuit says, 24 Hour Fitness forced Class Members to pay membership dues for a period of 60-90 days after they cancel their membership.”

The case is entitled Albert Alatorre v. 24 Hour Fitness USA, Inc., and is in the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.  Class members include people in the US who signed a 24 Hour Fitness Unlimited Guest Services SPA contract since the four years prior to the filing of the lawsuit.  A copy of the complaint can be found here.
