Speaking of the general scam that is professional fitness, I went to my local Gold's to sign up for two months before we move mid-summer. They were doing a 10 bucks a month deal with "just a $1" to sign up. Well, as I walked in and got the contract all started, there were so many little caveats and issues that I couldn't believe it. I wanted to walk in and pay $21 cash - two months plus the idiotic fee. All of a sudden, w/ an unannounced "processing fee" that was some $26, taxes, other "dues" I was looking at over $50 for two freaking months. And then, they couldn't take my cash - rather they wanted my bank information to "assure" payment. Fine print included a clause that stated they could pull my monthly fee from my bank (which would jump $10 > $16 after two months anyways), and to cancel after my two months I'd have to not only give a verbal confirmation of a termination of the contract, but written confirmation 30 days beforehand. I got up and walked away from the guy mid-sentence as he kept rambling on about all this crap. DO U WANT MY 1STBORN TOO?
