Fitness International Memberships
January 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Fitness International, Fitness & Sports Clubs, and LAF Canada Company for allegedly misleading consumers who signed yearlong gym membership agreements into believing that they were only obtaining and obligated to pay for one month of membership when, in reality, the gym charged consumers for subsequent months without their consent. (Garrido et al v. Fitness International, LLC, Fitness & Sports Clubs, LLC, LAF Canada Company, and Does 1-20, Case No. 17-cv-54, C. D. CA.)
