Leon Contacted me and apologized for the situation.. He cleared everything up and returned our deposit.

I have to say he is a stand up guy and may of the things said on the review were out of my anger. I believe Leon is a man of his word and can be trusted.

I would ask a bunch of questions before you give a deposit. THANK YOU LEON

LEON CHEATED ME OUT OF A COUPLE THOUSAND DOLLARS. BUYER BEWARE. HE WILL ASK YOU FOR DEPOSITS>> PLEASE DON"T DO IT UNLESS YOUR WILLING TO JUST GIVE IT AWAY> HE LIES TO YOU.. TELLS YOU GUARANTEED FINANCING>> TELLS YOU HE MANUFACTURES HIS OWN EQUIPMENT> THIS GUY IS HURTING FOR MONEY AND HE WILL NOT GIVE YOU YOUR DEPOSIT BACK. HE WILL TELL YOU THAT HE WILL BUT AS SOON AS YOU DECIDE NOT TO PURCHASE FROM HIM HE WILL GET MAD AT YOU AND RIPP YOU OFF.. DO NOT TRUST THIS GUY. HE'S A FAST TALKER AND HE CHEATED ME.. I CAN TELL YOU MORE IF YOU NEED ME TO. STAY AWAY. HE SAYS HE WILL WHOLESALE EQUIPMENT TO YOU. HE'S LYING HIS PRICES ARE HIGHER THEN ANYONE. SCAM SCAM SCAM. IF IT SMELLS LIKE A SCAM IT IS A SCAM.

Most consulting companies charge a monthly retainer fee for their services. Southern Gym Supply's retainer is a one time fee of $1000 that is not refundable but is credited to a client's final purchase of gym equipment.

The retainer fee is paid up front and clearly explained when new clients sign an agreement. In no way is it a hidden fee. It's how Southern Gym Supply gets paid for their services. They do not manufacture their own equipment.

They are consultants.If you ask Southern Gym Supply for a copy of their agreement, the non-refundable deposit of $1000 is clearly stated in multiple locations on the document - including the signature page. The $1000 is also paid when the agreement is signed. It's how the relationship starts.For this particular client, that one time fee of $1000 covered travel expenses to their future place of business, hotel stay, consulting services and quoting fees.

Unfortunately this client was not able to qualify for the amount of money they needed to borrow to start their business.When the financing company (which is not Southern Gym Supply, they are only consultants) would not qualify this person for a loan, they were understandably frustrated. Unfortunately they are now taking out their frustration on Southern Gym Supply.

LEON CORRECTED THE SITUATION AND RETURNED MY DEPOSIT IN FULL. PLEASE UNDERSTAND I ORIGINALLY GAVE MY STATEMENT OUT OF ANGER.

LEON IS NOT A SCAM ARTIST. HE CAN BE TRUSTED. IT DOESN'T HURT TO ASK A BUNCH OF QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU GIVE A DEPOSIT, I'M SURE LEON WOULD AGREE..

AGAIN THANK YOU LEON FOR MAKING IT RIGHT... 5 STARS IN MY BOOK!!!

Mr. Leon Anderson is a fast talker and a Scam Artist. Beware of his scam. He will tell you that his training services are for free. That is a lie. He will ask you for $1,000 up front before you guys do any business. Then he wants a deposit from you. He is asking for this because if you do not buy from him he will keep your deposit and tell you he's charging for his time. No one charges to give an estimate. He charged me $100.00 an hour for nothing. He did absolutely nothing to help my Gym. Once I decided not to buy from him he kept my money and said it was for his time. Enter with caution. He will tell you anything. If you don't believe me then after he gives you his estimate tell him your not interested. His whole demeanor changes. DO NOT GIVE HIM A DEPOSIT. ALSO check his prices. He says wholesale but he is lying. You can find equipment much cheaper. Do your research you can find much better deals out there.
