Bally’s Total Fitness

This case is a consumer class action brought on behalf of individuals who Plaintiffs allege were subjected to Defendants’ violations of the Pennsylvania Health Club Act, which regulates health clubs operating within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law, which prohibits unfair or deceptive acts or practices in the conduct of any trade or commerce.

Plaintiffs allege that Defendants sell contracts for health club services to Pennsylvania consumers that are in material violation of the HCA because Defendants impose initiation fees that are not reasonably related to Defendants’ costs for establishing the initial health club membership.

After many briefings and hearings a settlement was reached on March 28, 2012.
