Members of the New York Sports Clubs came out paying more, but didn’t play while the gyms closed due to pandemics … so they ruled.
Mary Namorato filed a class action lawsuit Thursday against NY Sports Clubs and its parent company, Town Sports International, claiming that despite closing its doors on March 16 due to the coronavirus, each was repeated month of customers.
In the docs, acquired by TMZ, Namorato estimates that TSI is running almost $ 30 million a month from its customers, who already ordered to stay home to help spread the virus.
He called the TSI’s conduct “more understandable than the hard-earned money the New Yorkers now demand to pay more for basic necessities – such as food and rent for themselves and their families – even if its gyms are closed and the TSI cannot provide services where it charges customers. “
What’s more … Namorato claims TSI – which operates gyms across the country – has a long history of refusing to honor membership cancellation requests. He also pointed to the Attorney General of Washington D.C. following TSI not once but TWICE for similar issues in the past. The lawsuit also prompted a ton of complaints from customers … and, for good measure, cited TSI’s “F” rating by the Better Business Bureau.
Namorato is settling for damages and to get the TSI to stop making customers jump on hoops to cancel members. We’ve reached TSI, so far, no word has been returned.
