Gold’s Gym – Contract Nazis

So, I recently signed up for a Gold’s Gym membership for my wife and I, and holy crap are those contracts stiff. I mean, good hell, they are worse than cell phone carriers. Locked in for 2 years with the threat of fees, collections and litigation to keep you paying up. What kind of a moronic business model is this? I mean, with a cell phone carrier, at least it lets them offset the cost of the free and discounted phones. What is Gold’s Gym giving?

It’s a gym membership folks, people come and go.

I’m tempted to try and get out of it just to see if there are any loopholes…anyone tried and succeeded, other than by selling the membership to someone else?

I’d be interested in some feedback, just to hear horror stories, successes, etc…any takers?
