View Full Version : Goodlife Fitness...Corporate Rate?
Sep 21st, 2011, 01:42 PM
I signed up (and have been using) Goodlife fitness with a corporate rate membership. I quit the company I worked for a few weeks ago, has anyone had experience in dealing with renewals with corporate rates? Do they actually check that you still work there? Have the rate increases been ludicrous after your years commitment? Currently paying $14 bi-weekly and I don't feel like giving it up. I can't imagine they'd try to increase my rate within this first year but has anyone been in the same (or similar) situation?

$14 bi-weekly is SWEET. I was recently offered $25 bi-weekly no towel for my corporate plan so maybe that is the going rate now?
I always thought gym memberships are like phone bills, once the contract is expired, you pay month to month. If you don't inquire, they won't ask.

That's why I haven't signed up yet. I'm doing the 3-free visits here and there. The RFD way.:lol:

Oh just to make you more envious, it was $14 with towel service. Its been that way since they introduced it to us (Thank you, former employment, a certain large chain grocery store where many goodlife gyms are located). The only change I had noticed that occurred was that they wanted to take it off your pay cheque awhile ago, now they've changed it so its pre-authorized on my debit (put it on a separate account so I have more control over it and can just shut down the account if they give me problems). I haven't noticed any price changes since they introduced it for us. Really hoping it IS just like phone bills, but I had noticed on another thread from a few years ago that one guy was mentioning his corporate rate was ending, which in theory wouldn't happen if it was like phone bills. This was also a few years ago and maybe things have changed since then, but not sure what was the terms of his contract, or whether it was something done through his work and he had quit so obviously his work wouldn't keep dealing with it. My work really had nothing to do with it, signed up through a website and pay directly from my own personal account. I can understand the rate being increased if I quit and my work was deducting the money and had to arrange for an alternate payment but I can't imagine they'd continuously check to see if you're still employed, if the money comes from you and not from payroll. Hoping that was his situation!

$14 bi-weekly is really an awesome deal. Damn, need to start working at certain corporate grocery chains now :)
