at this location there are two huge banners reading "$14.99/mo. no commitment, no catch, no kidding" posted prominently to catch the eye of passing motorists. Being an over the road truck driver, i thought this would be an ideal opportunity to work out on my limited time off of 4 days per month, and if i didn't or couldn't make it in any particular month, i just wouldn't pay the fee and not go.

i stopped in to inquire about this "deal" and was given a tour of the facility, after which the person who showed me around suddenly sits me down and whips out a flyer describing different priced memberships. according to their outside advertising banner, there are "no catches." oh yeah? you have to purchase either a basic or premier membership for either $79 or $49! if this is not a "catch", i don't know what one is!

i was then informed that they collect monthly fees in november and april (in other words, you have to pay the monthly charge 6 months in advance whether you use the facility or not.) "no commitment", huh? then what do you call it?

i don't see how they can get away with advertising "no commitment, no catch" when neither is true! it would have cost me at least $169 + tax for their "$14.99/mo no commitment, no catch, no kidding" offer. Needless to say, i did not fall for this scheme. don't be taken in by this company's false advertising!
