BEWARE! I signed a one year contract and paid the full amount in advance.
I stopped going after 3 months knowingly forefitting 3/4th of the money I had paid. Not a problem. BUT.... I had no idea they would continue to charge me $26 plus every single month after the year had ended.
This was NOT properly explained to me. My credit card # had changed and they did NOT send me a bill, so month after month they just racked up the charges >>> WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE. I got some phone messages to "please, call back" which I assumed were solicitation calls. Then a National Fitness company kept leaving the same message.
When I finally answered they said I owe a certain amount and I better pay up, or they will ruin my credit. IMO this is a form of "consumer fraud" and intimidation.
It is vulture capitalism. I will report the same to the Better Business Bureau and the Consumer Protection Service - and use every possible venue to warn others about the dishonest business dealings of this company.
