    Its disgusting just how much haggling you have to do when signing up for a simple gym membership at LA fitness.Its somewhat like buying a used car. From the second you walk in you have some jerk off named Tony who acts like he has been your best friend for 10 years shaking your hand and calling you "bro". Then you sit for 20 minutes while he tells you how great of a deal your getting, how you cant tell anyone just how much hes hooking YOU up etc... He will make phone calls, talk to a bunch of people then come back with some ass-raping figure that makes you look at him like :ugh: I honestly cant think of any 2 people that have signed up for a membership and paid the same amount. What the fuck happened to "heres our gym, its $20 a month, thank you please drive through".



    This ones for you LA fags... :fawk:

    you are right, a good rule of thumb is that if there is any type of sign-up or reg fee other than the first months dues, it's not a place you want to workout

    I like my place. one-time registration fee and monthly dues.

    Training schedule is pretty much constant except around holidays (trainers got families too) and you can go as often as you want.

    I cancelled my membership to a local gym. I do know what you mean. Signing a contract just to come workout was like :ugh: Peace out you slime-ball. I think that guys name was Tony as well.
    My place is more expensive and there are no weights to speak of (just strap-on type) but it isn't a gym either.
    Krav Maga training is teh win!!

    That's lame. My place doesn't even have a 'one time assfuck fee.' You either pay monthly, qtrly, biannual or annual. That's it. What' the point of a registration fee. Half of the people that sign up won't go longer than 2 weks anyway, so the gym makes out like a bandit anyway.

    same impression i got from them.

    then i saw my work had a deal with 24hour fitness for 24 bucks a month and no initial fee. i hit that shit :o

    local gym (but only one location) is 20 a month, has a nice weight room, i might switch soon.
