    Snap Fitness

    I was working out yesterday at my gym when I noticed an employee come in with a "No concealed weapons allowed" sign in her hand. When I joined last year, there was nothing in the contract about weapons and no sign posted. She didn't get it posted before I left, but today I noticed it posted in the window next to the door. I really wish I wasn't there when she came in, because I don't make it a habit to check for a posted sign when I enter a familiar establishment. I still have 6 months left on my contract and I really like the place. I've read other gyms in town also have a "no weapons policy", so I guess I'm out of luck. I realize my only 2 options are joining a new gym or leaving the firearm locked in the car. I would appreciate any suggestions.

    Let your money do the talking. Cancel, tell the manager why, and don't agree to pay any cancelation fees. They changed their membership terms mid-contract without forewarning.
    As a side note, I Know that we all worked hard to get our concealed permits. We are all responsible with our concealed arms. A place that doesn't recognize this, and bans them from their property, loses my business.

    Even though my club does not have a sign and I haven't inquired about their policy or even if they have one, I leave mine locked in my car or my bike if I ride in. Not that big of a deal for me.

    Were I in the situation, I'd have considered it a breach of contract. I'd get a refund for any time left in the membership.

    +1. If it wasn't in the contract when you signed it, you can demand a refund.

    Unless the contract was drafted by a complete incompetent, it will have a clause in it that allows the gym to change it's rules from time to time as it sees fit.

    Snap is a franchise operation, is ther another club near you? Snap membership is transferrable to any Snap location. My club is not posted.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    YET.

    I would ask the general manager to take the sign down or to release you from your contract. Try to educate them on what we are all about. If they will not budge tell them you will not be back and will not pay another invoice.

    The contract probably allows them to change their rules, but the manager can probably still let you out. If nothing road, you can always tell them why you won't be renewing.

    Luckily, here in PA the famous signs carry no authority of law. The worst thing that can happen is that they owner/manager can ask you to leave and you must comply or it is considered trespassing. Also, here in our Commonwealth, I have yet to see a single posted sign and I'm pretty careful about looking, more so to see if I want to spend my hard earned $$$ in the business. ~SGT

    My club of choice (Lifetime) is posted. I wouldn't carry in there anyways, as it is hard to change clothes without flashing; and I don't trust the lockers there for a second.

    Then I'd get a refund as I see fit. It wouldn't be worth it for them to try to fight me over $150-300. It would be to me.
