Fitness clubs are skilled in getting you to sign a contract and preventing you from cancelling. Their expertise is sales, not sports.
I recently heard from a young lady, Seema, who was approached by Extreme Fitness when leaving a movie theatre. She came to the club for a one-month free trial and was dinged for a year’s worth of payments.
Ontario has a 10-day cooling off period to cancel a fitness club contract without penalty, but Seema was told she could cancel in two weeks. When she did, she was too late.
I helped her fight the unfair deal and win a release from the Extreme sales tactics. See her story below.
Please pitch in with your own examples of sleazy pitches and the successful tactics you’ve found to win your release.
