A Gym Cancellation Letter

As we head into the holiday season, so many people will be lured into signing a lengthy term contract with one of your many local gyms.

You may feel like they are there to be focused on your health and well being, but after a short 30 minute tour, and that convincing sales pitch, full of empty promises and unicorn farts, you'll end up signing a membership contract, in which in many case, you'll actually never touch, other than a quick swipe of the finger on their tablets and your the key stroke of your credit card number.

Don't be taken advantage of, read the agreement first, understand the terms before you agree to them, find out the monthly total cost and what is the cancellation policy.

Gym membership automatically renews, unless you provide a 30-90 days written notice of the agreement to be cancelled, you may be on the hook forthgoing paying for a never ending membership that you may use for a month or two at best.

The office of Kazubek Legal provides during a consultation a template of a gym membership cancellation letter; these letters are not guaranteed to conclude the membership, but to start the process.

This is a form of abuse of process, but it is legal form. Even though it is well known among the courts, it is never really addressed nor corrected.

  • Section 53 and Tenants First right of refusal

  • Tenant Compensation and section 52

  • Section 55 and voiding a notice

  • Section 57 and Bad faith tenant application
