I really wish that someone would have bought out the downtown location.
I'm thinking that is still a possibility, hopefully it happens, I would love to roll my old rate with a new gym there.
From my understanding Lifetime bought the client database and is not planning to take over the downtown branch. After the 30th any still existing Lifestyle memberships that have not migrated will be canceled. The legacy california fitness memberships are being orphaned regardless (from what Lifetime told me today).
Basically old Califit members have to start over.
I get that. i'm saying that i don't care who operates the gym, as long as it is close to me and affordable. like if some guy buys the gym and offers previous members their old rates to fill it fast. i could use my bank statement as proof or something like that. just wishful thinking.
Got it, just putting out the info I have as sometimes these places string you along. I am prepaid for another year (2012) with LFF and they eventually told me I have to mail in a cancellation letter by the 30th if I hope to see any refund. If I don't they said they will keep my money even though 2012 hasn't started yet.
i also had the calfit legacy membership (i paid $24/month), but i canceled my membership on monday because of the closure of the downtown location. i actually canceled via e-mail, and it was very easy. i am sad that this location will be closing because it was definitely one of the most affordable gyms downtown.
Here's 10 other Downtown gyms if anyone is looking for options:
My name is Constance and for anyone looking for a downtown gym, Beyond Limits is happy to accommodate you with free adjacent parking, 24 hour key card access, real gym environment, showers, group classes, and elite personal training. Come check us out on E.Long, we are running membership deals through the end of the year, and you won't have to go all the way to Easton to get a workout. We are a 10 min walk from the old LFF.
Constance, what are the specials? I am interested in a new gym but not looking to drive 10 miles out of downtown to workout..nor pay 50+ a month.
