La fitness & Training Manager Said im not aloud to workout in the gym for 3-6 months Poway, California
22nd of Apr, 2011 by User677030
I go to the gym to workout as normal 4:30am-6:30am, and start work at 7:00am. my clients get checked in as normal by the front desk worker, one of my clients end up cancelling a couple hours before her session. So when that happends I myself have to go to the computer log in and no show the client. This time when I was attempting to make this transaction it kept saying error, person can not make this transaction becuase he or she is no longer an employee. That is how I found out I was fired, no warning from my boss, no email, no nothing, a computer had to tell me. While I saw these words on the computer my boss or ex boss said hi to me as she walked on by. So when I got home I just paid for a membership online so I can continue to workout. Later that day I go in and start doing my cardio, im extrmemly focused when I workout I dont like to talk to anyone and I just like to get in my zone. So after five minutes on the step milll I see this figure just standing there to my side. So I look over and its my ex boss, asking if I could stop my workout so I can go behind her desk and talk to her. I said "maralyn im working out right now" she says "but it will only take five minutes." I already knew what she was going to do take me behind the desk so she could fire me, I already knew I was fired, I already had my membership and I wasnt interested in getting a trainer, so there was no reason for me to go out of my way to stop my workout and have a chat. So I told her I could try and come back later in the day. So later that day came and I told my parents what had happened and they didnt want me waisting our gas money to go down to talk to this woman whos just going to fire me and then ill just come back home, when the action had already been done and over with. So I told her that I decided sense she was not my boss anymore its not crucial for me to drive over there. She said "Okay, I have your paycheck ill text you." So the next day I go in and workout as I normally do, but a little later this time, so I finished later and ended up running into her. She said that she HAS to talk to me, so I follow her in the back and the operations manager is sitting back there waiting for us. My ex boss wanted to tell me that I am a great trainer and that it wasnt her decision to let me go it was the GM's decision becuase I wasnt working full time (I never agreed or signed anything saying I had to work full time). She then went on to saying that I was not aloud in this gym to workout because its hard for the clinets to see there ex trainer. Which is confusing because there are trainers who have had sex in that gym, or have stolen money from clients and yet they have no problem getting a membership and working out there. Then I questioner my ex boss about that, and she kind of started stuttering and wouldnt look at me in my face, well I feel threatened by you. I have no clue why she would feel threatened by me, I have never threatened anyone, I can count on one hand how many conversations me and her have had, and I usally go the hours when shes not even there so where this is coming from I dont know! I asked who says that i'm not aloud to workout here, and she responds human rescources. She then went on to saying that if I wanted to work full time I could come back anytime, contradicting herself! So I just went home to talk this over with my family my father has a degree in humen rescources and I talked over with him, he says this is all crazy! I checked online to make sure that the gym still had the money that I had paid for and it sayd my membership was still active. So I went to the gym, I was doing nothing wrong, I had a membership, I was not hurrassing anyone, I had my earphones in was minding my own business. While I was in the weight room the operations manager comes up to me with some sales man with her (why he was there I have no clue), and she said "Michelle we have to ask you to leave, or we will have to call the police." I of course said, "okay im not leaving I have a membership!" I said all this calmly, i never cursed or yelled. So about 20 minutes after that conversation I see two big police men walk in and to the front desk, i was standing near the front so I said "im over here." and they look at me like are you serious, like expecting some crazy woman! So they seperated us and questioned us, and when I explained the story the officer says "looks like you have a case." I still had to leave, the officer said dont do anything that will make you lose the case, everyone is saying that I have all the cards in my hands, just dont screw it up. But I am the only person this has happned to at this gym. I am also the only african american employee. I also told my boss in the end of October that I could work 6:30am to 1:00pm. She did not give me ANY clients, she instead hired 3 new clients and booked them up in about 1.5 weeks, while she complained that I have to work more, and then she fires me. People that I dont knw, personal friends and passed clients told me that when they ask her or any other training sales rep if they can work with me she says oh michelle doesnt work much why dont you work with this person. The person is always one of the male trainers. Has this happened to any past emplpyees??? Or has anyone else heard of this???? Im so frustraded, my cleints have never complained about me, im sure, otherwise they wouldnt keep coming back!!!!
