I second that!! That's how they make their money - by lying. That's exactly how they got me. And once they got you - BOY, they got you for three years - remember that!! Thankfully I only have 6 mos or so on this lil financial prison sentence!

Also, I've noticed that they don't keep the place and the machines as clean as they used to.

But if you do decide to give it a try anyway then start with a basic membership, giving u just access to the facility.(no trainers or tanning). And by all means.... get that 10-day money back guarantee in writing. Heck, take the contract home to read the fine print- if they'll let you. And good luck.

You're not out of the woods after the three years. You have to write a letter telling them to cancel your contract, along with your member # they provide you. It has to be sent certified return. They reinstate your membership monthly, until you send that in. The membership will then be canceled, the FOLLOWING month...after they milk your bank account ONE LAST TIME!

Jeez people!

#1 - pay your bill
#2 - exercise (only way to get the fat off)
#3 - stop eating (hint, hint lady @ Golden Corral)

Whether it is Nat Fitness or wherever, there is no magic, or FREE, pill!!!!!

"no secret" who said anything about not paying a bill?
If only they made a "NO LYING PILL"; I'm sure plenty of people would stand in line to cram them down NFC's throat!!

This location will not last and it will eventually close ...

Why wouldn't it last? It is busy in there everytime I go in. You wouldn't be a disgruntled member who got kicked out or quit paying his bill would you?

I LOVE NFC and my trainer!!! I've not found one lie that was ever told to me. The way I see the 3 yr contract, if you're serious about working out, then 3 yrs is no big deal. If not, then stay home, on the couch, and continue to complain about life. I LOVE MY NFC... and those that really want a healthy change, will love it too! Other gyms in the area may be great too, I've not tried them. I chose NFC for the pool and the trainers and they haven't disappointed me once! Whatever you do, wherever you go... just get off that couch and MOVE!!!!

It sucks when you don't read the fine print doesn't it?

Ok First of all, how much weight you lose depends on you, not the gym. Second of all, the staff are great, kind people. I've been a member for almost 2 years, and I love it.

They don't want people to know this, I asked them about it and they told me they only have the 3yr contract.
Come on

I was with NFC for 6 years. The only time the 3 year contract sucks is when it's hard to come up with the next months fee. Believe me, they also give u run around when u do try to quit. Call this number, talk to Knoxville, a bunch of bs. I'd like to go back but the hell with another 3 years.
