5. I had a bad experience with Bally's, too, in like 1989
I had paid an exhorbitant membership fee, and then ended up walking away from them because I didn't like the way they were managing the club. Thefts, stinky and dirty locker rooms, etc.

Strangely, a couple years ago they tracked me down at my new address and invited me to sign up for an annual membership for $68! That's it. Yeah, I snapped it up and now pay only $68 a year. The club near me is under new management now so it ended well.

but that's beside the point... just yacking :)
