Hello, Wanted to pass on my bad experience with the Greensboro Athletic Club. First of all the equipment is limited and very outdated. The atmospher is dark and it smells old. The one positive is that they do have a pool. Beware of the contract. If you do not remember to contact them before the contract is up it will automatically roll into a new one. They will not give you a courtesy contact to advise you that this is about to occur. Once the contract has rolled over the new contract is a sealed deal. The manager would not let me out because the contract ended in August. Its September 19th right now. I can still get out if I provided proof of moving. I was advised that stopping payments to the club would result in being reported to the credit bureau. I had to comply in order to keep that from marking up my credit. So I am now being charged for monthly payments again until 8/31/09. I wouldnt mind so much if this was a nicer club. It would have been outstanding customer service if she understood that this thing happens and ended my contract. I was still willing to pay for this month. I will give her credit for standing firm but not for doing the "right" thing. She understood that I had planned on ending my contract but forgot. Since my contract is solid, all I can do is inform others.

The contract is tricky. If you do not remember when your membership is up it will automatically roll into a new one. Sam, the manager, was nice enough to coveer the verbeage of the contract from the previous year with me and because I was 3 weeks into the new contract I was stuck. It is the first option you have to initial you know. Nice of her to point that out. I was hoping for some understanding but she quoted the contract verbeage again. She advised me that she will turn me into a collections agency if I tried to stop payments to the club. I had no choice but to comply rather than get a mark on my credit. She was kind enough to remind me that my credit could be tainted if she files. I would not be so upset if this was a nicer club but it is not. I guess I am just a stupid customer. I have no legal stance but I can inform others!

Its like going back to your high school gym to work out. Most of the equipment is 1980's, but the atmosphere is laid-back and pleasant. More middle aged folks and a lot of people trying to get back in shape. Its not a hipster place to meet a lot of gym bunnies. I like being able to work out without having the stress of having to act cool, etc.
The SAUNA is EXCELLENT! This is the hottest one I've ever found in N. America (I lived in the Baltics and Scandinavia before). IF you like sauna, you have a large mixed-sex wood paneled steam room at your disposal, next to a nice pool and a hot tub.
All in all the place is function over form. You can find cheaper, and you can find cooler. But if not being nervous to go to the gym and/or a GREAT Sauna is what you need...
