Bally Gym Total Fitness Lifetime Membership Lawsuit

 

A class action lawsuit has been filed against Bally Fitness in the U.S. District Court, Northern Illinois, Eastern Division.  The lawsuit claims that Bally did not live up to their lifetime member gym privileges.  The lawsuit claims that Bally’s sold their members memberships to LA Fitness which caused members to drive out-of-the-way to work out.

The Bally Gym Total Fitness Lifetime Membership Lawsuit explains: “For other potential plaintiffs throughout the U.S., there are no LA Fitness facilities nearby at which they can workout. For others, Bally did not assign their contract to LA Fitness, but did sell all of the Ballys in their geographic area to LA Fitness,”

The lead Plaintiff in the case lives in Chicago and was told by Bally that in order to work out he must go to a St. Louis, Missouri, Bally club!  Furthermore even if there is a LA Fitness club close by LA Fitness will not allow access to the club by former Bally members unless they buy a new membership.

The case is entitled Juan Dorado, et al. v. Bally Total Fitness Holdings Corp. and LA Fitness International, and is case number 12-cv-137.  A copy of the lawsuit can be found here.
