Just like everyone else, I paid an upfront fee in 2006 and was told I was locked into a lifetime rate of $29/year. Just informed that the price is increased to $129/year. I am so disappointed with this company. It's bad enough they make no effort to maintain the gym equipment, but now they raise my membership by 444%! I'm concerned what next year is going to look like. The worst part of all this is I feel as if I have no recourse to dispute this issue. Ethically this is a clear violation and I feel this should be a legal issue as well.
