Goodlife Gym Membership Deal (is this good?)

I went to Goodlife fitness in Ajax (on Harwoord Ave) and they offered me the following deal,

$16 bi-weekly for 10 months.
$24.50 bi-weekly for the last 2 months.

No other fees whatsoever (0 initiation, 0 Admin and No first or last required). This is a one year contract.

What do you guys think? Thx.

good deal. but if you know someone who works for TDSB, you can get the spousal rate of $24.99/month which is pretty good.

Some federal government organizations get a discounted price of $350 a year for employees and spouses, but I think the reason why is because a lot of government organizations are exclusive to other fitness companies (like being in the Canadian Forces = free YMCA).

I went to that location last night and signed up for a similar deal

$16 bi-weekly for 40 weeks.
$24.50 bi-weekly for the last 12 weeks.

No other fees whatsoever (0 initiation, 0 Admin and No first or last required). This is a one year contract.

I still have 10 days to cancel. Anyone think that I can find a better deal somewhere else?

I would rather work out at my local rec centre, but I work out @ 5am and cant find many places that open that early.

I called Goodlife fitness and it doesn't seem like all that great of a deal.

1. After 1 year, its $24.50 bi-weekly
2. You cannot sign up at that club and use any other club. In order to use other clubs, the rate is $29.50 bi-weekly.

Im gonna go to goodlife today and cancel my membership. if they can offer me something better, then maybe i'll stay.

I've only been a member for 8 days, so by law they have to allow me to cancel.

The $0 initiation and $0 processing is actually standard there now so it isn't that big of a deal but the $16 biweekly sounds pretty good compared to the standard $28. I've always found them slightly overpriced myself but their staff is really good with their customers and the equipment is always awesome and up to date. It's a matter of personal preference I guess.

hi
I went to a women's Goodlife club today, they quoted me $26 bi-weekly('standard' student rate) and wont lower the price
What can I do to talk them into lower it for me? -_-
Maybe they'll budge when my parents go talk to them? (i'm 17)

Hopefully, Premier will keep their words, you have everything on writing and you check out all the fine print. What they say may not be what you get.

It seems YMCA, mississauga location is increasing its fees effective from December. The current rate per month excluding GST for
Youth (15 years) : 29$
Youth (16-21 years): 38$
Adult (general) : 55$
Family (general): 86$

Effective December the adult rate would be increased by a dollar and family by 4dollars.

I do not know how much Good Life fitness is offering. i will be going to check it out.

Premier fitness is a crooked, evil company who's many tricks (including threatening to sue members in good standing, charging credit cards they kept on file when they were not supposed to, etc) are well documented here on RFD...good luck to you
