Gold's Gym is a new workout facility in Issaquah and I was excited to try it out since it was the most affordable well known gym in Issaquah. The brand name made me give it a try and how wrong it was. While their slogan is "Change Your Body. Change Your Life", I never knew that could mean negative results. I joined the gym as most people do in order to lose some weight. However, after my experience with the Gold's Gym of Issaquah, the change in my body was gaining weight and it changed my life in making me less trusting of salespeople and their mastering of the art of deception through contracts. I was told that the membership worked as a month to month contract that you could end with a 30 day notice to the gym. However, this is not how it works. In order to get out of the 12 month contract earlier, you have to give a 30 day opt out plus about $130 in fees. After this horrifying experience, I would not recommend the Gold's Gym of Issaquah. The deceptive tactics that the staff uses to sign new business is a disgrace.
