Fitness star Ashy Bines faces major blowback on social media over business issues

Gold Coast fitness star Ashy Bines is facing a fresh barrage of complaints about her and her business practices after a number of customers found money coming out of their accounts that they were unaware of.

A group of disgruntled former customers have launched their own social media page, collecting complaints against Ashy Bines and her fitness empire.

It already has a following of more than 14,000 people.

The page is littered with hundreds of complaints about being kicked out of or blocked from forums the customers had paid for.

Customers such as Michelle Denham say her issues with the business were not resolved until she threatened to take legal action.


"Payments started coming out of my account and I was curious to why because it was a one-off payment so contacted them via email several times and never heard back," she claims.

"I then wrote on their Facebook page and I was told the questions I was asking were inappropriate on their page and was blocked by them."

A representative of Ashy Bines said sometimes the smallest percentage of people are the loudest.

“Out of the hundreds of thousands of happy and long-term customers, sometimes the loudest are a very small percentage that may not be happy with the service or those that have not read the Terms and Conditions when signing up/purchasing,” the representative said.

“Our terms and conditions are clearly laid out and accessible on the appropriate website and in the Apple and Android App stores. A number of the concerns raised seem to be centred around misinformation without all of the facts of each individual customer/purchase.
