Yes - seeing that you have a 24 month contract, they have to

They didn't do a credit check on me.

But some of the gyms do, bu I don't see the point of them doing a credit check on you as you pay in advance for the month to use the gym and not in arrears (right?). All the gyms I have been to I had to pay the first months fee before I could kill myself in there. So I think it is none of their bussiness as you are technically not applying for credit.

They do this because at the end of the day they have a business to run and if they get 20% or more defaulters, they are not going to survive much longer.

My gym has just closed down.(Fortunately I didn't pay them a year upfront as they tried to make me do).I think we should do a credit check on THEM before we join.

I will never take out a gym contract, and if cedit checks need to be done, I am not interested; I would rather live without it.
