  1. Just to give you an update: I've heard nothing. The 28 days notice they wanted me to pay for has coincided with the national lockdown where gyms were forced to close so I'm hoping they're going to let it lie. Of course that might change when more people go back to on December 2nd. When I hear anything I'll come back to report.
  2. Hi dx, Yeah I've seen that mentioned, though I'm surprised that if it's unlawful how they even have the gall to suggest it in the first place - there must be a loop hole they have handy. Sam
  3. Good morning, Thanks for the reply. This gym involves Legacy Leisure, the gym I use is Rutland Sports Park, though my account is linked to Friesland Sports Centre as that’s where I initially signed up (they have 5 different sites all working as one in this area). It was a council owned and run gym before they brought in this third party to do it for them (and reduced the quality, but that’s a story for another day). As suggested I have cancelled the direct debit. I received another email last night telling me that they would freeze my account for a further 6 months for an ‘admin fee’ of £5 per month. I will be telling them that’s not good enough. Apparently I owe them £25 for an admin error on their behalf from about a year or so ago (they mentioned this at the time but said they would look in to it, and never mentioned it again). I’m happy to pay what I owe outside of this £26 28-days notice fee. So: what should I do next? Thanks again, Sam
  4. Hi, I'm sorry to add to the deluge of gym issue that are already here but I was hoping for some advice on my situation. I have had my gym membership payments frozen over lockdown, and when they reopened again in July I opted to continue to freeze mine for a further three months. I'm not sure about others but I just don't have trust in the general populous (or rather the people I've seen use that gym) to do their share to keep things clean and Covid free (despite an email today telling me that they give me 'the strongest assurance' that it is being well cleaned - frankly, there is no reassurance they could give me I don't want to catch this life changing / life threatening virus). So, they've told me I have to give 28 days notice - something I find very disagreeable given the climate. I've even asked if they could just freeze my account for a further six months or so - in the hopes I'll feel safer at the end of that time. I don't particularly want to quit the gym, I just don't want to spend a monthly fee on something I'm not going to use. They unfortunately will not freeze. I've seen people mention on here to just cancel the direct debit and ignore their threats of court action and it being passed on to a collection agency, and that they are in turn powerless and I won't be taken to court ('gyms won't take you to court' I've seen posted on here but it's easy to say, a lot harder to take the plunge and keep fobbing them off in the hopes they'll eventually go away). I just wondered where I stand and what you would recommend as the best course of action. It's not a massive sum of money, but with my partner losing their gig over the lockdown, every penny counts at the moment. I'm quite infuriated about their stance of wanting to charge me a months notice, when they could just freeze and keep my continued membership after that freeze period (which should be worth more money to them in the long run). I've been a member with them for years so to be treated like this is even further annoying. Thanks in advance for any help, and I hope you are all keeping self and well, Sam
