Deceptive Trade Practice

Gym Membership Continued Fees Class Action and Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP has recently filed a case in the Washington D.C. Superior Court against Washington Sports Clubs, for failing to cancel a client’s membership even after he made repeated attempts to terminate it. The lawsuit alleges that, under D.C. law, customers must provide a separate signature or payment authorization before a gym membership auto-renews, which Washington Sports Club failed to do. The plaintiff in the case also informed employees multiple times verbally and requested in writing that his membership be cancelled, but he continued to be charged membership fees.

Other large-chain gyms and workout facilities could be engaging in similar misconduct, and we are specifically investigating:

  • Orangetheory
  • Sport and Health
  • Equinox
  • Planet Fitness
  • Crossfit
  • Gold’s Gym
