Many gyms offer binding membership agreements for a fixed term, so read the terms and conditions carefully before signing an agreement. Ask the gym if you can take the agreement home with you, and take your time to read the terms and conditions before signing. Pay special attention to terms concerning fees and the suspension and termination of the agreement. If you find the terms and conditions unacceptable, find another alternative. There are several gyms that offer agreements without any fixed duration.
If you have any problems with an agreement you have signed and fail to resolve them amicably with the gym manager, contact consumer advisory services on 029 505 3050 (in finnish).
