Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Vie En Forme gym in Montreal advertises a yearly membership rate of $49 for the entire year,, This rate is never actually available, if you call they will tell you that the 49 dollar special is over and then they will propose you a rate closer to 300.00,, They have been advertising the 49 rate for years in news papers like " The Journal De Montrea" and the free newspapers on the metro as well as the "Mirror",, The gym is filthy and their is a good chance that your locker will get broken into or you will be overwhelmed by the terrible smell and poor ventilation. The other gym that uses these bait and switch advertising tactics in Montreal right now is "Fit For Life" up on Saint Laurent Street,, They are constantly advertising a 10.00/ month special on their website but when you phone them they will tell you that it was only for the first 40 people who called in and that the yearly membership is now 340.00/year.. Beware of these gyms, they are out to attract the lower levels of society and have no class with their advertising,, i guess that they correctly assume that the public is stupid, which it usually is..
