Beware. As a former Gym Membership Sales Rep, these "free trials" are nothing more than a method for the gym to obtain your personal details and then continuously harrass you until you join. Avoid this like the plague.

My guess is that they will ask for ID when you show up. If they didn't then people would just sign up for a free pass and rotate around to all the different goodlifes. This is a gym we are talking about, they scam you it isn't easy to scam them...

It is not junkmail we are talking about. It is their contracts and payment process. They won't let you walk out unless you sign a 1 year contract with pre-authorized debit. No credit cards, no cash. Debit only. After the one year is up, good luck cancelling your membership. People have reported that they continue debiting your account for months after you have cancelled. Just look at their website: there are no prices. What does that tell you? It is a very shady business.

At Goodlife, I've seen people just walk in many times with other members when the gate open. We even have a personal trainer who was fired and she still comes and uses the gym with her boyfriend and trains her outside clients there all for free, no one seems to care.

I was a longtime member. I put up with their poor housekeeping (dust, mould) and poor equipment maintenance because I wasn't paying much. When I finally quit after being told I could just call and quit since my membership was on medical hold, they insisted on taking another payment. The CSR was of no help, refused to transfer the call to someone who could help me so I put a stop payment on my account. I informed them that I would be doing this. A couple of months later without notice, I got a call from a law firm claiming to represent them looking to collect the $13 I supposedly owed plus $25. I looked up the number and found GoodLife uses this law firm to harrass former members whether they owe money or not. On the law firm's website, they brag that since they are not a collection agency they don't have to abide by the rules that collection agencies must follow and that they can recover costs. The woman who called me mumbled the name and when I asked that she give me the complete name of the firm, her name and a number they could be reached at, she hung up on me. She continued to call for months harassing me and only stopped when told she had the wrong person. I'm sure I'm not done with them. I would stay far away from GoodLife.

lol sounds like all these gyms are the same?

If you don't want to be nagged probably the best place would be the YMCA? They have crappy equipment but they wont hold you hostage when you want to leave lol
