#7622 Gyms & ID

Submitted by:
Over a year ago I joined a gym without showing ID. I paid for 18 months in advance and even received an additional 9 months free for doing so. Since I wasn't authorizing a bank draft or credit card billing, ID wasn't necessary or requested. I used my real name and a PO Box on the membership form, but could have used any name and address. If you offer to pay the whole membership in advance and they still demand ID, start to walk away. There's a good chance the clerk will bend the rules to sign you on so he can get his commission. Many gyms take your photo, which shows up on the computer when you check in so that someone else can't use your membership card. If that's a deal-breaker for you, make sure you're aware of this policy before handing over the money.
