The 3 month membership package is designed for members who do not have, or would prefer not to pay via the Direct Debit, and is still very competitively priced. We also offer a one-month membership – useful for people working away from home or who would like to try the gym for a short time or a multi-pass for greater flexibility.
 CANCEL
  
 UPDATE
No. We believe our prices are extremely competitive and are therefore non-negotiable! The prices listed under the ’Join Now’ tab of the website are our set membership types.

 UPDATE
If you are changing banks and wish to continue to pay for your membership by direct debit you need to contact your new bank and instruct them to switch all your direct debits and standing orders to your new account. Most banks will process this in seven working days.

However, if we are unable to collect your monthly subscription payment by direct debit because you have not allowed sufficient time for the switch to be made before your due payment date, your membership will expire automatically and you will have to re-join from scratch, paying another joining fee and setting up a direct debit mandate on your new bank account.
 CANCEL
  
 UPDATE
The collection day is fixed on joining and may not be changed for any reason.

 UPDATE
Fitness4Less has a policy of continuing to renew and improve club facilities and services and to offer a wide range of equipment. To support us in doing this, each club charges all members an annual club enhancement fee of £6.50. Members are informed of when this fee will be due via email. The fee when due will be taken with the normal monthly direct debit payment.

Leaving the club and cancelling

 CANCEL
  
 UPDATE
Our paid in full memberships are non-transferable and non-refundable, so if you are in any doubt about committing to a year’s membership then your best option is to opt for the monthly membership paid via direct debit. 12 month plans have a minimum commitment of 12 monthly payments. Flexible memberships have no notice period . Once you have contacted your bank and cancelled the direct debit that funds your membership, your membership will be terminated. Please be aware that 12 month plans must not be cancelled until 12 monthly payments have been made as you have agreed to make all the payments that are due. Failure to do so will result in the cancellation of your membership and all remaining instalments and additional charges may become payable.
 CANCEL
  
 UPDATE
Members who have a flexible monthly membership or have completed the minimum term membership can cancel their membership with immediate effect, this is completed by contacting your bank and cancelling your direct debit.

Please be advised your membership cancellation will take effect as soon as your bank notify Fitness4Less. Therefore your access will be prohibited on that day. We do not offer refunds on unused memberships, so to make the most of your last month at the gym, it is advisable to cancel your direct debit about 7 working days before the date when your next subscription is due to be collected. Please do not leave it any later than this, or your bank will not have time to cancel before the collection of your next month’s subscription.
