Remember how excited I was about Curves zumba? Remember this stellar review?
I take it back. I take it all back!
I just wish that I was already a lawyer so that I could really do something about this, but here is the injustice that I was faced with yesterday:
They are charging for zumba!!!! $2.00 per session. This wouldn't be a big deal (Oh, I'd still be furious, but it wouldn't be quite the upset that it is) if Zumba took place in a seperate room. But no, Zumba takes place in the only room, right around the equipment that is for PAYING members to use during all hours of business...
Now, if a PAYING MEMBER wants to do the workout that was PAID FOR at 5:30pm on Tuesdays or Thursdays, they will have to PAY an additional $2.00???!!! I'm sorry, but I PAY $35.00 a month to have unlimited access to Curves.
I want to see my contract. I should not have to pay anything about my $35.00 monthly fee to use the facility at any time it's open.
It's ridiculous. I am going to be writing to the corporate office about this, just as soon as I figure out how, and who exactly to complain to.
$35.00 a month is not chump change for me. No sir-ee, I budget around that number. When I joined Curves back in February 2010, I decided that it was worth giving up some fun things every month to get in shape with Mom. So for almost a year now, I have sacrificed movies and going out to eat for going to Curves.
And they have the nerve to charge me more, just because the only time that I can fit it into my schedule is right after work, which just happens to be when the now $2.00/session Zumba classes are?!
Not cool, Curves. Not cool.
And yes, I know that school starts for me tomorrow and that this will basically no longer apply to me since I will only be able to go to Curves on Fridays until Summer break... but it's the principle of the thing.
