Ok. They win the battle, and hopefully, lose the war. For anyone that has followed my Gold's Gym nightmare as they've harassed me with unjustified calls from a collection company, I finally yielded. I've got more important things to do than fight gold's gym -- I'm paying the 190$....and I'm happy to have this matter off my to-do list. Sure -- it made for an interesting blog post or two -- but now, it's just a pain.
For the record, I will continue to give the company a lot of negative word of mouth and I don't recommend any consumer join Gold's Gym.
