Jim Knell, How is the Ogden Athletic Club working out for you now?Rumor has it Lindsay is looking for his own place, Travis is very unhappy with the situation, Kyle and Rod have never been more dissatisfied, the entire world knows what happened to Chris and even Becky is fed up with the fact her "potential income" has been compromised!

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND? Remember Yoni Gottesman, you know, the 4 year old entrusted to you and your unlicensed health club staff who drowned at one of the clubs you were involved with in California?

Readers just need to google "yoni gottesman" to read the FACTUAL information about you and your circumstances with this absolute unnecessary tragedy exasperated by all of the defendant's actions after the fact.$16.2 million is a huge judgement to try and escape from......no?

Are you kidding? You must be from WCAC to write this pile:

VERY UNFORTUNATE? NO SH_T!

ENTRUST ANYONE? THEY WERE CERTIFIED LIFEGUARDS!

SWIM CAMP? HOW ABOUT TO LEARN HOW TO SWIM, DIPWAD!

NEVER ENTRUST AN AUTHORITY TO PROTECT THEM? DON'T SEND THEM TO SCHOOL?

"Never send them to a day camp that they may not be safe for them." THAT IS WHY THIS WEBSITE EXISTS. WE ARE WARNING EVERYONE. DO NOT LET YOUR CHILD GO TO ANY OF THIS COMPANY'S CAMPS!

This is very unfortunate, but why as a parent (I am one) would you entrust anyone with the safety of your child around a pool, with the knowledge that you know that they can not swim well.A swim camp was a bad idea.

Parents please make good decisions with your children, never entrust an authority to protect them.Never send them to a day camp that they may not be safe for them.

BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE!I wonder if James Knell, Richard Berti, Julie Main, Charlotte Valentine, Richard Ortale and the rest of these "thugs" have kids of their own?

This heart breaking event could have easily been prevented.

Instead, the owners and management cover up, lie, bail out and transfer ownership to create a smokescreen while this family mourns their loss.I hope you all sleep well at night.......

Who could possibly trust the WCAC management team or staff after reading about this situation?

After reading about the little boy who drowned and the way this company handled the situation with the parents, it is difficult to even think about supporting this company by joining their newest club in South Ogden. WCAC and Jim Knell are obviously trying to skirt their legal responsibilities in California. I recommend supporting local businesses who's owners have lived here, invested here and continue to succeed in a challenging business environment which makes Golds Gym a great choice.

The video of the boy drowning is very disturbing and the story this family portrays accurately depicts the greed and arrogance of this corporation. Instead of taking responsibility for this tragic event, it is obvious the owners and management began weaving a web of deceit which forced the family to relive the circumstances several more times during the litigation process. If I lived near one of their clubs, I would certainly not be a member!

JAMES KNELL WAS REQUIRED TO PAY $00.00 OF THE DAMAGE AWARD AS HE WAS NOT THE OWNER OF THE CLUB NOR ASSOCIATED WITH THE CLUB WHEN IT HAPPENED. HE PURCHASED THE CLUB LATER AND HAS IMPROVED CONDITIONS AT THE CLUB.

I went to the website and saw Jim Knell's name and the WCAC listed. Seems someone is not telling the truth. I guess there are 16.2 million reasons not to take responsibility.

Neither WCAC, or Jim Knell had any ownership or involvement in the club where the accidental drowning happened.

Perform an internet search for yoni gottesman to find out more about WCAC, the new owners and management of the Ogden Athletic Club.16.1 million dollars were awarded (May 2009) to the plaintiffs (parents) in the drowning of their 4 year old boy at the first day of an unlicensed summer camp at one of the West Coast Athletic Clubs in California.

Watch the actual 13 minute videotape of the drowning and read about how the owners/management quickly shifted ownership and management to distance themselves from liability. Where did they get the resources to purchase the Ogden Athletic Club?

Why are they purchasing a club in another state?Will you trust your children with this ownership after visiting the website above and seeing how they dealt with previous club members?
