How to cancel your gym membership (or not)
This is yet another example of why it's so hard to cancel a gym membership.
I was reading this person's story online here and wow this really hits the nail on the head. This person went through what many of us have at one point or another and the rest of us fear will happen. He went to cancel his gym membership and not only was there no help from staff to do so, there was also resistance and hostility from them. It's a good read; I recommend you take a look when you have time.
When you try to cancel the gym in person, they look at you like you're crazy. It's not easy. They make it difficult because they make money off of you not quitting. People often say, "Oh I'll just go in person and tell them I quit. It's easy." The countless stories online prove otherwise.
