Did you sign a contract confirming you would be bound for 12 months?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no i signed two times one monitor with my finger when i asked what is this he told me its just for confirmation of your direct debit but they didnt give me any paper to sign and my eyes side is really poor and i cant read properly with out glass.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.
And does that document contain a term to the effect that you are bound for 12 months?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Hi what's happened I'm waiting
Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.

The reason you are experiencing delay is that you keep posting before I have responded.

I am sorry though but its very unlikely you can cancel. The document you signed with almost certainly contain a term tying you in for 12 months.

I'm afraid it is your obligation to read what you sign not theirs to bring it to your attention.

Whether they gave you a copy or not is a non issue. If it contains a term and condition and bears your signature then you are liable.

Whether they would sue or not is another matter. Gyms have been known to do so I'm afraid.

You can always offer a lesser sum in full and final settlement.

Sorry thats probably not the answer you wanted but it is the position that you have and I have a duty to give you truthful and accurate information even though its not what I want to say.

Hope this helps. Please rate my answer OK SERVICE or above and I can answer your related questions.

i want to know whats happen if i dont pay and ignore them be cause i said i pay half of all the money but they didnt accept this

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.

They may sue and seek a CCJ. Gyms do that quite often.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

your means is maybe they send me to court but i dont have money what can i do

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.
I'm not sure what you mean?

Delighted to continue with this but please rate my answer.
