I am/was/huh a member at World Gym, and need to get out of my contract but I can't because ABC Financial Services says they will open sometime. Well it has been almost three weeks and nothing. Is anyone else having the same problem??? How do I get out of my contract??? In the meantime where am I supposed to work out??

Good luck, we went to power shack months ago before we knew world gym was closing. My husband was a member there for over 4 years (world gym)and we still could not get them to stop drafting our bank account this month is the first time we have not had a draft come out. We were told to send in a fax to cancel and it takes thirty days even though he was out of contract over a year ago. Then they tried to say they never got the fax, thankfully I had printed out a fax conformation sheet and now they are suppossed to send us $100.00 refund, well see if that ever happens. Anyway stay on top of it, I did hear that YMCA on Redbud was letting people work out there, but don't know if it's true! Good Luck!

Call your bank have them block it, after sending them the letter stating that you are backing out of your contract due to their own breach of contract.

Worth a shot?
