I dare you to look up at the ceiling while working out. They are too cheap to fix the roof leaks so there are dozens of 5 gallon buckets painted black hanging from the ceiling to catch rainwater

Here is a thought for you who are preaching "you signed a contract, get over it". Do you have a mortgage? If so, that is a contract with the bank that you will pay X dollars a month for your house. Oh no! Something happens to you and you cant make any money for 6 months. The bank says thats too bad, you signed a contract (mortgage) and either pay for the house, or lose it. Now, what would be your argument then? I bet my life that ALL of you would be pleading and begging the bank for a break or understanding.
There is no argument there either, you have to move out. If you sign a contract and breach it, then you pay the consequences. It doesn't matter if it is a house or a fitness center contract.

The steam room and hot tubs have been removed. Those were services that I really liked. Has lifestyles violated the terms of the contract by reducing services that were there and used to sell the gyms services. Shouldn't they at least reduce the rate of the contract. The roof leaks really bad. One of my friends was on the bench press and dripping roof water fell into his mouth and in his eyes. The place is going downhill fast.

It is pretty simple, and nothing against this gym, all contract fitness centers are the same. It IS all about the contract. If a fitness center requires a contract, RUN. There is a reason they aren't contract free. There are far too many gyms in this area to get hammered with a contract. Reading the posts, it is HILARIOUS how many defense posts are being made by the owners. That alone should make you raise an eye brow and keep on stepping.

Shame on every one of you for belonging to a health club. If you are dumb enough to substitute clowning around in a gym for actually doing some hard physical work and sweating in actual life, you deserve to be taken by these money grubbers. I guess it's popular to belong to a gym, but look at what you are getting. If you are serious about keeping in shape, get out and do it yourself without being a sucker for the show of it all.

It has definitely went down hill at this place.The staff are very unfriendly and rude. The equipment is old and outdated. I will be leaving as soon as my contract runs out. I have noticed several others have left.

My husband was deployed to Iraq a couple of years ago and they would not put his membership on hold. How ridiculous is that!!

As harsh as it may seem, you signed a contract. When you did this, you agreed to the terms of the contract. If you have issues with the terms of any contract, then I would suggest not signing it. Would being deployed to Irag get you out of a home mortgage? Would being deployed to Iraq get you out of an apartment lease? Would being deployed to Iraq absolve you of paying credit card debt?

Don't expect the other party of any contract to agree to providing you a way out of the contract. This goes for a mortgage, a lease and even a fitness center.

Comparing a gym contract to a home mortgage does not make sense. They do not even compare considering their value and the fact that one involves repaying borrowed money and the other involves an agreement to pay for the use of the gym over a period of time. Basically, the Lifestyle Center would be asking for money for a service that can not be used due to military service. I think most people appreciate the military and would take offense to that.
I agree

Contract or no contract the public needs to be warned about this gym and their extreme policies! The public needs to know that they would not put a membership on hold for someone serving our country! They will be judged by the court of public opinion! Shame on them and spread the word!!!!

They are both treated the same legally, i.e. they are both contracts. Both types of contracts define the terms of a breach. In terms of a home mortgage, naturally you will lose your home, but you are also responsible for other fees and fines. Regarding the fitness center contract, you are responsible for the dollar value of the contract. Breach the contract, you could be sued in civil court for that amount. I realize to a lay person the types of contracts are different, but according to law, they are treated the same. Also, breaching either one of these will ruin your credit score.

I go to Lifestyles and I find the lady in charge, Tammy, to be rude and arrogant. Margaret is worse! I don't understand why the management doesn't look around for more professional staff. Is it because they work for peanuts - if so, don't be greedy; you are making loads of money!!

He also came from nothing and has made it all on his on through the help of God and he will tell u thAts who he gives all the glory to.The owner has helped several other gyms that we're going out of business just to keep them in business.He also has been in business for years and has more members than any other gym in the Tri cities.

Does the same ones own the gym? If this is the right gym I am thinking about if you have a Medicare card from United Health and have a certain plan you get in free for a year. I know that there is a gym in J.C that this applies to. The one I am talking about is out near Fuddruckers.
