Dear Sir or Madam On 25 December 2014, I enquired about joining a Fitness First Gym, and I called them up and they said that there's a 1 week trial period that I could do, to see what it's like before I join the membership. They said that they will start charging my credit card on 1/1/2015. So, I tried the 1 week trial period - and then on 31/12/14 - I tried to cancel my membership. They said that I've gone over 1 day of the 1 week trial period and now I am bound with the fitness first contract. I said that I only wanted to do the 1 week trial period - and then quit, and told them that they will start charging me on 1/1/15 which is why I quit on 31/12/14. I changed my credit card details to avoid them charging me fees at the time. I tried calling the manager several times to explain to them my situation but they wouldn't accept my case. They said that I am still bound with the contract. My question is that I only went to the 1 week trial (which is free) and I do not want to be charged money on the services that I didn't receive. Fitness First is still calling me and emailing me and saying that I owe them $252. I am not paying this amount because I have not been receiving services worth up to this amount. Today, I have received an email saying that if I didn't respond soon, there will be a debt collectors chasing after me. However, when I joined Fitness First, I told them that I am only interested in 1 week trial period. I am very very upset with this transaction and was wondering if someone could help me. I asked my friend who was in the same situation (not with Fitness First but with a different gym), and she said that she went to the lawyer, and the lawyer said that she is only required to pay for the services she received. In this case, I did not receive any services (except the one week free trial period), and therefore, I do not think it is fair for me to pay $252 under contract law. Any help would be much appreciated. Many thanks.
