could be he/she found another gym cheaper or didnt think he/she would be locked into a contract for 16 months.
To the OP: you fell for one of CF's known (to most at least) sales tactics. I rather think this is the only way they get new customers.
At one time, CF was banned from the Small Claims Tribunal for using it so much for customers who had stopped paying the fees.
In the beginning I tried to reject the offer by saying "let me come home and consider about it (I have to admit that my rejection is really weak and ambiguous)" but the salesperson kept asking me why I should consider. And then the manager came and ask me for my cards to check whether I have come there or not (because they said if I wanted to come on the other day, the price would be much much higher - and what I thought is, if I could go, I would never come back...).
I stupidly/naively/densely trusted them and gave my cards to him. And that was how the nightmare began...
I did the test, listened as the person told me I was a complete fruit loop whose only chance of being saved was to get brain washed and become a robot.
I stood up to go, and the person grabbed my arm and tried to get me to sit down. I pulled my arm free and walked to the door. Someone else came running up and grabbed my bag, and asked my if I really wanted to be left such a psychotic wreck.
I replied in the affirmative and took my bag back and walked to the door.
Now, many years later, I'm still not a Scientologist.
Getting up and walking out is always an option, unless you have pissed a Triad off.
I think that in the contract you sign there will be a clause which states that whatever you have been told verbally by the sales team means absolutely sod all unless they have written it into the contract, and had it signed off by a manager.

I was once approached to sign up to CF, saying they've currently got a great deal. My reply was unless it totally free, then it's not a deal I'm interested in. The sales person then asked what type of credit cards I had so he can get me different discounts. My reply was, 15 of 50% of free is still free, so is it free? And no you cannot see my cards.
Now when I get approached, I just tell them I'm already a member.

Again, I regretted for not calling the police...
