I too find the health club industry a trying one from a detractor perspective and have been victim of the very behavior you describe. There is hope, however. I recently had the opportunity to speak to a wonderful health club company that is growing strong and changing the way the industry looks at their customers. They are customer centric, service oriented, and focused on being different from their competition. The company is Xsport Fitness.

I spoke to them about their needs from a customer experience perspective (as that is my role and expertise) and can now only wish I could join, if only they would grow faster and reach my area of the country.

With hope for change,
