TOTAL AND UTTER SCAM!! Do not, under any circumstances buy into this bull.!! I unfortunately got trapped into the scam myself. The meal plan was absolute rubbish, nothing but chicken and rice, and I stopped the meal plan after the 4th week and just ate clean small regular meals and only then did I start to lose any body fat. Not only that, at the beginning of week 4 i dislocated my shoulder in his gym during a class, and his response to me was "F*ck, I don't know what to do!" Being a personal trainer of '15' years you'd think he would know how to handle such a situation, he asked me if I was "ok" to drive home! To which I said "NO! My shoulder is out of its socket and I have a manual car!" He then asked me if I could pop it back into place myself!! I also said "No, that's not safe, I'll need to go to hospital" He didn't even ring an ambulance, nor did he even ask if I would need one. No incident or accident reports were filled out either! Being a qualified PT these are requirements that must be made, he should also have insurance for when clients get injured.! The meal plan he spins off as a 1600 calorie plan, is actually 1733 calorie plan, as I calculated it down to a T in my calorie counting app. And at the end of the challenge I had dropped a dress size and my body was visibly slimmer and firmer, but he didn't pass me and therefore I didn't get any money back, then had the nerve to ask me if I wanted to stay on as a casual gym goer...! HECK NO - I'm studying to become a PT myself so I don't need him, his gym, his meal plan, his scam, or his bad attitude or unprofessionalism. Also he has the nerve to slag on all the other local gyms in his sign up seminars, including Roar fitness, Snap fitness, Goodlife health clubs, Jett's fitness and a few others. He claims to treat you as a person, an individual and not a 'number' like the 'big box gyms' (his words) but when my fiancé came to pick me up after I dislocated my shoulder in week 4 of the challenge he asked my partner "what's her name?" You'd think after me working out in his gym 5 days a week for 4 weeks he'd know who I was, if he claims to treat you as an individual... total liar, scammer and douchebag! I hope he gets shut down!
The "Free" 8 week bikini challenge actually cost $300 upfront. Then only get it back if you get results that they can actually use. The classes are pretty good but over packed so not personal nor do they watch.
The FREE 8-WEEK BIKINI CHALLENGE IS NOT FREE!!! It costs $297.00 upfront. There is not set criteria for your before and after images to be suitable for marketing purposes, hence only a tiny handful of women whose images can be used (at the discretion of the judging "panel"consisting solely of the owner). The centre has a few good female group fitness trainers who are encouraging and well-prepared; however, the training is repetitive and lacks imagination. The nutrition plan is basic and a generic "chicken and rice" plan, hardly the advertised "personalised meal plans". Great concept, but the owner comes across as chauvinistic and unprofessional, which is a pity.
Lance allegretta is a scammer. He takes a deposit at the start when you sign up. Will keep it. Tell you at the end of your challenge that your before and after photos arent good enough even if you have obvious results. To not waist you time! There is another website that has other bad reviews on it www.heygyms.com.au
This programme is a complete scam. The man who runs it is unprofessional, rude and not helpful at all. I would not recommend anyone to go here and I hope he gets caught out with what he's doing. He also took 5 days off and closed the gym while we were still paying for the programme. Whenever you ask a question he is aggressive and acts very immature
Don't do it! Go to a reputable gym where you get decent support and good customer service! This challenge is a scam as you will end up $300 out of pocket even with amazing results!
I totally agree with all of the previous comments. You get hooked in, under false pretences. When you sign up, you get told that you get your deposit back if you had great results. All they ask is that they can use your photos for advertising purposes. I personally had great results, but that was still not good enough to be refunded. I am happy with the result, but I feel angry and frustrated as I have been mislead.
I have now found a gym which is cheaper and friendlier than this one.
The classes are fun, but the owner is very unprofessional and can get very rude, calling clients bitches and tells then to f off. Very very unprofessional
