I read the complaint a father filed on behalf of his daughter and wanted to share that I had the same experience. The personal trainers push and push until you sign on the dotted line.
I was pressured into signing up for personal training just like his daughter. Fortunately, I got up and walked out before signing. I made a formal complaint about this very sneaky sales tactic, but I know they will continue to pressure people into buying. They want you to sign a contract for 3mos., 6 mos., or 12 mos.
You have to pay an enrollment fee of $150 in addition to already paying a joining fee to be a part of the gym and your monthly gym dues. They you have to pay either $60, $50, or $40 per session. The problem is that you can't just get a few sessions to learn certain techniques or exercises. You have to commit to long term and there's no getting out of it if you decide it's not for you.
It's not about helping people get healthy, it's all about making money.
