My first visit at 24 Hour Fitness and I was ripped off! Someone broke my lock and took the money that was in my wallet. I am almost certain it’s one of your employees. I usually go back to my locker from time to time during my workouts and when I went to my locker previously I noticed that the lock had been tampered with. It looked like someone was trying to snap it off but I figured the employee didn’t have time to do it for some reason, so I went back to my workout thinking it would go no further.
I doubt it is a gym guest since they don’t stake out lockers or have time to break in to rummage through belongings as employees would. Furthermore, if a guest was to loiter in the locker room it would be easily detected. An employee can easily meander in the locker room and be virtually unnoticed. It is unfortunate that 24 Hour Fitness hires locker room attendants that are dishonest and thieves. Previously I’ve gone to Bally’s for over 15 years, now its L. A. Fitness, and never once have I had a problem with locker room theft.
I have read reviews on the Internet about this kind of locker room theft at 24 Hour Fitness clubs but I thought they were just a few isolated incidents. Now I’m convinced that the locker room attendants in the Male’s locker rooms make a living breaking into lockers and taking only the cash, leaving behind cell phones, credit cards, wallets. If it was a guest they would more than likely take everything without regard to the person’s angst from being robbed. I rated this company 1 star because the website didn’t give me the option of -5 stars.
