One advantage of living in a new building is that a gym is included and its free.
Don't know whether it still stands, but CF was barred from taking cases to the Small Claims Tribunal.
CF would ignore members requests to cancel their memberships unless it was done 100% specifically how they wanted it - even registered post was not deemed worthy. CF would then keep charging the (ex-)members' credit cards. The (ex-)members would stop the cards so CF would take them to the SCT. CF clogged up the court going after (ex-)members that it considered to still be members. The SCT said "no more"! Don't know whether CF found another way to get the money it feels justified to collect or its under seriously different management (but reading that it is still a gay cruising joint, probably not).
The moral is don't give CF your credit card number ever, no way, no how, not even from your cold dead fingers.
TST & Mongkok are Gay clubs and the male changing rooms and showers are full of agressive gay males who bother members, enter occupied showers and some offer oral sex for cash. The TST manager insists that expats get the wrong idea when the see 2 - 3 Chinese males use a single shower stall. They are supposedly just trying to save water & the environment
Some PT staff use lockers to store contraband cigarettes, Protein & Steroids which is sold to members. Nothing is done about this either and we have found used needles on the floor in the showers at times.
They still bother people to renew even if they have 2 years left on their memberships and I have a feeling a lot of people in CWB might get screwed over soon as there are rumors that that club might be closed or relocated next year. The management deny this but the trainers have been warning people for the past few weeks.
They were pretty hard up for cash a few years ago and if you signed up for a 2-3 year deal they offered you a $88 or $699 price (All Clubs/All Hours/ Worldwide) once your contract was up.

1. No one likes being told what to do... it is the kid in us.
2. 10% weight loss is beneficial in all aspects in life.
3. Most PTs/Experts tell you the bottom line of what "most" people would be. Disregarding all other factors.
Personally I worked in the UK health service as a trainer for the upper end obese and when you are training a 30 stone male you can't say listen you need to lose 18stone.
Sorry rant over... dislike it when I witness poor training. It is not all trainers but some do give PTs a bad name.
Although some decent trainers about - just not many as the good ones get out of the industry or set up a PT studio.
