    actually the jamaican government subsidizes 80% of every students tuition fees..what i pay per year is what some people overseas are paying per course :rofl:

    and to think some students out here dont pay their fees, then complain when they get de-registered from the institution :ugh:

    No I understand. I just dont see why such a large registation fee is considered acceptable/reasonable.

    because the majority of people that sign up for a gym go for a few weeks, maybe months, then quit. The gym doesn't make any money if you sign up on a monthly basis with no startup fee and then stop coming after the first month. So, they either make you commit to a year or more up front, or you pay a "startup" fee.

    same here,$150 downpayment, $64/month.. :mad: fucking bally..
    in my defence there are a lot of rich chicks driving their bmws, there is a big staff that cleans the machines and puts weight back to where its supposed to be, and little to no jocks, the machines are always open.

    ill be looking for a new gym soon.

    I train at home and at the campus weight room which is free because I'm a current student and is free for me for my whole life because I'm a combat veteran.
