Here’s more junk mail from LA Fitness. The health club insists on portraying hot models that bear no resemblance whatsoever to the typical LA Fitness member.

Enjoy your workout.

LA Fitness is running a promotion for free menu items from a nearby noodle restaurant. Bally will probably counter by handing out Ramen Noodles.

LA Fitness is now sending junk mail to lure new members. The health club actually trademarked the phrase, “Exercise your options.” Plus, the mailer includes a coupon for a Complimentary Personal Fitness Assessment. You mean members typically pay staffers to tell them they are out of shape?

Now LA Fitness is hawking a special Valentine’s Day promotion, offering discounted memberships. Actually, it would be more affordable to buy your sweetheart a diamond.

The latest LA Fitness scam promotion involves DID YOU KNOW… tips stapled to postcards. One typo-ridden sheet appears to be targeting seniors with references to osteoporosis. Hey, LA Fitness, DID YOU KNOW… the country is in an economic recession that prevents citizens from patronizing your over-priced health club?

Enjoy your workout.

Now insurance companies are teaming up with health clubs to provide special discounts. However, the rates are almost identical to Bally – a one-time $29 enrollment fee, then $29 per month. On the one hand, there are studies that show obese and out-of-shape Americans are draining lots of money in terms of health care costs. So the partnership seems like a natural fit. Another natural fit involves the fact that insurance salespeople are among the least-trusted people in the country. Simply Google the search terms “Health Club Rip-Off” and you’ll see Bally and LA Fitness employees rank high among the con artists too.

Enjoy your workout.

It looks like LA Fitness will extend its pre-sale rates through the New Year. 2011, that is. At this point, anyone who signs up at the regular price is a moron. Come to think of it, has any member ever paid the regular price? Would LA Fitness even know how to charge the regular price?
