    Tuesday? Given my attention span, I'll lose interest by Tuesday. Heck, I'll probably lose interest halfway through the sales pitch.

    all i wanted to know was how much. and the chick couldn't even tell me that.

    i was like...um..why. note to self -5 points to join

    about a month ago i emailed them..and didn't get a reply for about 2 weeks another -3 points

    so...if this broad doesn't just answer a simple question. how much for basic. how much for v.i.p.

    i'm out.

    the problem is i NEED a gym, and there aren't a lot of choices in the area.

    Join my shit....I got a weight bench with up to 480 in weights, and a treadmill.......That I'm not completely sure works anymore since it hasn't been used since I moved here....Still, no fee, and no interview.

    You were banned. It fills you with determination

    They're told not to tell you before they pitch you...their way of heading off someone calling around and just signing up for the lowest priced place...the better sales guys know how to dissemble better when asked that question...

    Their goal is to sell you on their porridge being the one that's jusssst right....

    I used to manage a gym '>.>...tell me what city and i'll try to send you in the right direction

    Oh right, right, forgot. Could you just buy weights and skip the gym part? Or something?

    What kind of archaic area do you live in where gyms operate like this? I guess rural, since last time I joined they had a sign out front that explained everything.

    yeah...country af

    the closest 'city' is a college town, that well...is like a small town.

    that's what i'm used to you walk in..and everything you need to know is right there.

    on a board, in a pamphlet, or the person at the desk can answer a question or two.

    They operate like this everywhere despite whatever sign you see advertising some special offer or some such thing...It's just bait...

    No, I joined that gym and started going without much hassle. Said I could get personal trainer sessions, blah blah, the upsell was at the desk.

    The upsell wasn't on the sign outside?

    every place is the same...slight deviations notwithstanding

    You get upsold everywhere though, it wasn't too unusual. A guy at Walmart tried to sell me an extended warranty on an mp3 player. But I just walked in, had a look around and joined.
