Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service.

Yesterday we published this blog about a Webster gym owner who had sold a bunch of year long memberships despite knowing full well that she was about to sell the gym to a friend of hers who would not be honoring the memberships.
Nikki Holland, the owner of Pure Fitness, also had her gym shut down by the DOR in 2015 for nonpayment of taxes, which she said was a “glitch” from when she bought the gym from the previous owner, who just so happened to be her husband Scott Holland.
Well, Nikki deactivated her Facebook page as soon as we contacted her earlier this week, but after we posted the blog about her she immediately put her page back up and contacted us to clear things up…..
Except….that doesn’t clear anything up. It’s just an email from the new owner asking her for a Facebook password because the new gym used the same Facebook page as Pure and just renamed it. Let’s see where she was going with this…..
Wait….what? You deactivated your Facebook page but not messenger? That’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works.
But she wouldn’t answer the very simple question that could clear this up – where the money at?
It was like talking to a wall. Except with less critical thinking skills. No Nikki, we’re not going to call you, even though it’s going to extremely disappoint this guy:
Finally the conversation ended with her saying “Hello” and then blocking us:
And that was the end of that. Nothing shady about her. She certainly helped clear up any misconceptions we had that she might be a con-artist.
Here’s a message she sent another concerned customer:
Yea Jennifer, your membership is still active at the non-existent gym she sold to someone else. Hit her up tomorrow for dem vouchers though!!
Turns out “thins went south way fast”:
Here’s an idea – don’t sell year long memberships if you know you’re selling your business. And if you do sell your business, refund them the money for the memberships they never had fulfilled.
Finally she ended it with a teaser……
So excited!! Can’t wait to see what the results behind door #3 will be!! Things are certainly looking up!!
Anyway, it turns out that the Holland’s are actually friends with the new owner Jason “Chief Cheerleader” Cook. So who knows what the hell’s even going on here. All I know is it’s not the customer’s problem and they shouldn’t be the ones chasing these people down. You sold year long memberships knowing that you weren’t going to be owning the business a year from now. The fact that they didn’t tell customers this is all I need to know. The messages from Nikki just confirm their overall shadiness.
Oh, and Pure Fitness is a trademarked franchise that they probably shouldn’t have used in the first place:
Scott Holland, who tried not paying his taxes when he owned Powerhouse Gym gets to run a for-profit speed camp at Shepherd Hill because he’s the freshmen football coach there.
Still no word how Mark Prince factors into this, but the fact that there’s missing money and he’s working there is the least surprising news ever.
I miss Fiesty lawyer lady.
Mr. and Mrs. Holland:
The jig is up, refund every last cent you ripped off from your customers at the 11th hour. Try being the sort of people that your own children will look up to rather than shifty and slippery con artists. It might be a new habit that you have to form (being honorable) but it’s never too late to start…
No it’s too late for this couple, it was probably too late by the time they turned 18, Some people are no good and you stay away from them. You don’t have them to your home, lend them money or socialize with them or they drag you into shit like this. Sociopath users with a trail of burned bridges and a victim complex. Glad they were exposed.
Actually, I’m kind of surprised that there isn’t some type of state law requiring memberships to be transferred upon transfer of ownership.
With that being said, it would be a very wise marketing decision for the new owners to place some type of ad in the local paper apologizing for the way customers were treated by the previous owner, and offering to honor those memberships that are in question. Can you imagine the free publicity they would receive? There would be articles about them in the papers. The Boston TV stations would pick up on it. You can’t buy that kind of publicity.
People aren’t buying and reading the newspapers, giving free memberships to people who haven’t paid you after the expense of buying a gym, is a bad business decision. This isn’t social justice land, you lose your cash flow to non paying “members” you lose your business, credit rating etc etc too much at stake for feel-good virtue signaling.
We’re talking about a second class gym in a third class city, Webstuh, they go out of business and the windows are covered in old newspapers by the building owner. Nobody will think twice or give a fuck about their good intentions.
Old members have the same rights they have always had, pay for a membership and use the gym.
These Grifters make the Clintons look like The Salvation Army……… hopefully the Shepard Hill skool dept. takes notice and fires this fucking scumbag.
What’s their transgender locker room, showering facility, bathroom policy? /sarc
who cares about the gym memberships.
you should have asked her the important questions like
“is it true you guzzle man juice like a man dying of thirst in the desert?”
“can i have the link to your personal pornhub account?”
I’m telling ya.. I’m telling ya.. small claims before they move to Florida and the money is all missing.
BTW women who don’t feel they are paid enough, you bring the excellence and you will be paid. You think anybody tries to short change Judge Judy or assault her on an airplane like AJ Baker?
Prince’s pose in front of the gym is everything.
Getting expanding adds on the top of the page so it’s difficult to click on the TB logo to get to the home page without hitting the add and being redirected to Marriott rewards or something.
Comment section is dying again not a good sign.
Her middle name is ACCUSSO, funny sounds like accuse or accused. As in when you take her to small claims court she will be accused of selling FRAUDULENT gym memberships and you will win the case. Slam dunk, Judge Judy will hit the gavel after 3 minutes. Judgement for the Plaintiff. The second step is a criminal prosecution from the State Attorney Generals Office of Consumer Affairs.
The first people to get their small claims cases heard will get their money back, file your case before Accusso the Accused files for bankrupcy.
Goddamn, that chick has a busted up face. Maybe she is scamming money to fix that mess.
” Please consider donating “. I’ll consider it when you fix your fucked up website…
TB – Where the page forwarders at?
We talked… you listened?
Amazing. Thank you.
I would love to watch Scott, who looks like he’s 6’7″, banging Nikki, who looks about 5’2″.
That’s a freak show. Just look at the picture of those two. How do they even…?
Nevermind. The shitty page forwarders are still here. You don’t care about your readers.
He uses her like a Fleshlight
my friends and i are not exercising to protest this malfeasance…
