I had an 18 month contract. On the date that I signed the contract, the gym representative had me initial a box and said "that box just confirms that you have a guaranteed renewal rate of $39." What the small print really said, was that Anytime Fitness reserved the right to automatically renew my contract without any need for authorization from me.
It also said that in order to cancel the contract, I needed to give them an additional 30 days written notice (in person at the gym).
So I ended up paying for an extra (total) two months that I did not want or need. If you decide to go with this shady operation - make sure you read all the fine print!
