Planet Fitness-Austin, Texas (Slaughter Lane) allowed a minor to sign a contract and will not let them out of the contract even though a minor can not enter into a contract.
They want a $58 buyout fee before canceling the contract. They have been charging him even though he only used the gym a few times. The keep charging his debit card each month.
I have tried to get them to cancel the contract but they refuse even after I told them my son paid the $58 buyout fee in cash. They say that no buyout paperwork was completed by either my 17 year old son or the fitness club. So he lost the $58 buyout fee and keeps getting monthly charges.
Beware of Planet Fitness and their shady tactics. They have clubs all over the US. The best way to handle them is the file a dispute with the credit card company and hope for the best.
