Bally’s Fitness Cons Man With Disabilities Into Membership, Family Says
An Indiana man with developmental disabilities was duped into a monthly gym membership by representatives of Bally’s who showed up at his door and drove him to the gym, the man’s family says.
Two men from Bally’s Total Fitness approached Mark Hannon,49, at his Indianapolis apartment and then drove him to a local gym to sign up for a year-long contract. Hannon has the functional abilities of a man much younger than his 49 years.
