They called my house on August 8th, but I was at work and Iím still trying to get a hold of them, there is no one there but the members who has the key to get in. What should I do?

    That's why he can't go there. The only people there are the guys swiping in and out, I assume it's locked with no front desk.


    I'd say join us in the 1970s and get an answering machine so you can return calls.

    take a day off, wait for someone to go in the place and when they swipe pretend like you are looking for your card and walk in.

    I like this one, I might just do that...no I will

    I agree, I need a answering machine, it is still B.S. that there not trying to get hold of me tho, but I will give them a try today. It's after Labor Day the owner may stop in today, I will call the place every hour of the day if I have too.

    Why is it B.S.? They're a privately owned business who can reject business and profit whenever they feel like it. They don't owe you the right to a membership or the right to a call back. It isn't good business, but that's their right as a private business.
    Been out the game for a little while, but jumpin back in

    You don't have room to complain here. That you left them no choice in how to leave information for you (lack of answering machine) is your problem. You called them, they called you back. Stop whining.

    I left out somethings, the owner said "I should be able to sign up around the 1st of August" so I called July 31st to set up a date to get a membership, which never came about.

    I know not having an answer machine had a lot to do with it, it's just the fact I left 3 voice messages after that and no call back. I will look for a answer machine tomarrow.

    Good idea Philster!

    I'm sorry about the whining because there will be no room for that in the gym. When I get the chance I go over my friends house as often as I can to workout, but I can't always get access to weights when he is working, by the way I have no room in my house, I am going to do everything in my power so I can have access to lift some damn weights that's my promise.

    Leave a voicemail saying you're an oppressed minority, and if they don't immediately contact you about membership you're going to show up with the media.
