    So my wife and I are moving north by about 30 minutes. This puts us a good 20 minutes away from the Gold's where we have our membership. Gold's states in their contract apparently that you need to be at *least* 25 miles away before you can cancel without penalty.

    We'll have a local fitness center only 5 miles from our new home, and we'd really like to take advantage of the location and lower price.

    Anyone here have any experience with getting out of Gold's contracts?

    Thanks for your support. Here's some titties (NWS, obviously):

    how many miles away will you be from Gold's now? Is it as the crow flies or via city streets?

    Via city streets and google maps it's about 12 miles - time of drive though will be closer to 20 minutes (ideally, prolly longer during rush hour), and not really on the way to work for me, not at ALL for the wife.

    Really, it's not so much the distance as the fact that it's now pretty far out of the way, and I see no reason for us to pass up the local fitness club if at all possible.

    If they open up a place in our new city like they say they plan to (eventually) we'll be all over it, however.

    Just ask your Doc for a note to get out of your contract.

    Say you're moving out of the country? Works for me for every bill or contract, and they don't bother to ask for a address.

    Well, I talked to the manager at the location, and they require "proof" of new address, move, et cetera.

    I suppose I could just photoshop some shit?

    :werd: or just fill out a change of address form to a distant relative or your parents house and provide them a copy (not that you actually have to submit it)

    how will they check you moved?
    can't you just say you moved further out and give them a valid yet wrong address?

    I've been trying to get out of a contract I purchased for the GF and me. There really is no way to get out of it unless you move a hell of a distance away. I just have to let it run out till the end of the year :dunno:
