Goodlife Fitness cancellation

I have missed two payments for goodlife fitness membership and I paid all together in third month. Do they have right to mess up my credit rating ? I got a call after 8 week, stating that I have missed my payment and they will ruin my credit if I don't pay up. Did not get any info from the caller, just asked me to make payment.

Has this happened to you before ? What happened when you didn't make payment /late payment ?

If you don't make payments you have contractually agreed to make you are the one messing up your credit rating not the companies you aren't paying!!

if you signed a 1 year agreement... they have every right to charge you even if you don't use it.

Then you shouldn't have signed an agreement.
If I sign for TV service but don't watch TV that month, if I sign for cellphone service but I'm out of the country, etc., I'm still going to pay that month..

Not sure where you are from but almost every form of service is contract based, expect to pay up or go on tilt.

You can pay as you go, but like with pretty much anything, paying as you go grants the right to raise prices on very little or no notice.
If you're in a contract, a contract is a contract. You owe no matter what.
Didn't they warn you before signing that any unused time @ the gym is nothing more than a donation to their profits?
You still have to pay no matter what...oh [email protected] Good life automatic withdraw from my bank account was the only method of payment they would accept when I was considering the place...

Yes, this, + they also have the right to close down on you and force you to keep paying, provided that they offer a new location to go to...if it's too far away, too bad, you still have to pay...
(ie they recently bought Extreme fitness. If they felt that two Goodlife gyms are now too close together, they can keep the former Extreme fitness open as a Good Life and close the former Good life location, forcing you to only use the former Extreme fitness location...or any other Goodlife location as desired...)
