Talk about a clown outfit. I felt like I was haggling over a counterfeit Rolex watch in New Jersey.
Anyway, I walk into the Canton Michigan (Ford Road & Canton Center), Anytime Fitness and a bumptious young fellow stated, "What can I do for you buddy." At that point, I knew things were going to get interesting. As the front desk was completely devoid of any documentation, I politely asked for a brochure and or pricing information. Immediately, this kid tries to persuade me to sit down with him. I indicated to him that I did not wish to sit with him and that I simply wanted something/anything that detailed their pricing and or services.
Immediately, he held a business card in my face and told me to call him. I immediately and sternly reiterated my request and he snapped back with "we have five payment plans." I said great, let us talk about them and he refused; at which point I returned his business card and walked out the door. Referencing the numerous complaints strewn across the Internet, I can clearly understand the odd behavior of the kid I encountered. These people need to move hard and fast.
They know that if they can get you one-on-one, they have a better chance of closing the deal.
They do not provide brochures and or details because they do not want them used against them in court. As I exercised a bit of scrutiny, I was fortunate enough to spot this clown from a mile away.
