Carefully Read the Gym Membership Contract

When you sign for the gym membership, you must think it through and read the contract carefully. Getting a gym membership is very easy, but getting out might be a bit more problematic. Some gyms require a fee for canceling the contract. That’s why you must read the contract and see if you can cancel without paying a fee.

The new year usually means changes in our lives and the beginning of achieving the resolutions we have planned for the future. Some of us have decided to stop smoking, to lose weight or drink less, and to do anything to keep us healthy.

The majority of these resolutions are connected with health and losing weight and how can you achieve that if not by physical exercising. And one of the best methods would be to go to a gym. For that, you will have to join one. This is when it gets complicated over time.

Everyone starts and gets motivated, and going to the gym becomes a habit for some. But there might be some things that will prevent you from going to the gym as often as the first few months. And your gym membership is still active, waiting to be paid.

When you sign for the gym membership, you must think it through and read the contract carefully. Getting a gym membership is very easy, but getting out might be a bit more problematic. Some gyms require a fee for canceling the contract. That’s why you must read the contract and see if you can cancel without paying a fee.

There might be some cases in which you won’t need to pay for cancellation: you’re injured or suffer from a serious illness, and you cannot afford to pay the subscription. In these both cases, you will have to get some evidence to support your claims.

Over 6 Gym/Fitness Club Reports Per Day in 2017

Last year, the CAB/Citizens Advice Bureau has reported that there was an average of six complaints per day that was connected to “gyms and fitness clubs”. That is a very big number, over which other 60,000 people looked for advice on the CAB’s website. They too were looking for a way of canceling their gym membership.

The Consumer Expert at the CAB, Kate Hobson stated that the ending of 2017 has been full of offers from gyms, “we’re bombarded with offers for health and fitness memberships, which can ask for a lot of money or commitment up front.”

And many of us wish to begin their new year’s resolution fast, not thinking of future complications. Hobson recommends anyone willing to go to a gym to do some research on that gym, club or fitness studio. She also added that you must “know how long you’re committing for, how much it will cost you, and think about how often you’ll need to use it for it to make sense on your budget.”

So, we should think it through, even though our new year’s resolution in well intended. Let’s start with some jogging and simple exercises at home. If it all works fine and you have the necessary time, then a gym membership for a few months won’t be too bad for you, as long as you go regularly, to make sure you get the most of your subscription.
