Cancelling Golds Gym Membership

Can someone explain the step by step process with canceling a membership at Golds? I cannot for the life of me get a straight answer from the employees and they’re sending me in circles!

    I think it depends on the management group. For my local one, I literally had to have a signed letter stating I wanted to cancel my membership

    No. I literally had to write up a hand-written letter and sign in. But like I mentioned, I think it depends on the management group in your area. The Golds Gym billing company here is called Paramount Acceptance and I had to go through them.

    I that's what I loved about my old gym la fitness. I'd cancel, then work out and decide I didnt want to quit so I'd reinstate for free. Such an easy process. May God bless the manager. Lol

    I recently quit from Golds Gym! I went in person, where they gave me a card to ABC Financial Services called www.myiclubonline.com to quit. It said on the card I needed to call ABC but they did not respond to their own phone number. Plus, I had to create and account with ABC, which required an agreement number which I had to call my local gym for. So I ended up emailing [email protected] I said that I have tried going in person and calling already and I needed to cancel my membership because I was moving. In the email, you need to include name, gym location, agreement number, address, email, last 4 digits of SS, last 4 digits of DL and reason for cancellation. They responded and apologized a few business days later for the inconvenience and were cancelling at the end of the month. Hope this helps

    I cancelled my debit card that the monthly auto-pay was tied to. That was after I attempted a polite, "normal" cancellation by calling and going in person. They are a DIFFICULT company to break ties with.

    The cancellation for Planet Fitness was easy peasy. I went in and said that I moved to an area without a nearby gym; they looked up my account and cancelled it. Took less than 5 minutes. They also offered to look up gyms (not PF) in my area that were a good deal.

    You have to cancel in person. Ask to speak with sales or the general manager.

    Cancel in person to avoid BS/runaround. Told them I was moving & no there were no other Gold's Gyms in the area I was moving to (true...they usually want to know the reason why you are canceling). Never had issues cancelling with Gold's or LA Fitness for that matter...although to this day, I am still haunted by LA Fitness emails asking me to rejoin (again, none in my current area)

    ...always read your contract 1st before signing (><)
