Man vs Boy

Today, it was my first day at a new gym, which cost a fortune. Some skinny teen who had clearly never lifted in his life dropped a weight while I was stretching and broke my ankle. Money down the drain. FML

Shouldn't they be responsible & pay for either your medical and/or gym fees? Hope you get better soon & your money isn't wasted.

Read the terms and conditions of your contract. not sure where you live, but you may be able to back out if you submit a notice within 3 business days of signing. Othewise, there may also be a clause allowing you to cancel early due to disability if you have a doctor's note.

If not, the contract might state it can keep a hold on the membership fees for a certain period of time. I have been a member at a few different gyms before and two of them had that condition. I hope that applies to your gym, OP, though the two gyms that have that condition are not a chain.

Did you buy an 8-week membership? In a few months, you should be ok, buttercup.

Nah bruh. You sue the gym and get some money!

Not the lucky break you were looking for.

here's the bright side, you have plenty of time to work on your arms

Yeah...no. Some kid breaks your ankle, his parents are on the hook for your expenses- which mens medical, as well as any work you had to miss for treatment and any services you pre-paid for and now can't use. And since it's a membership gym, they know exactly who that kid is. On the other hand, if your gym isn't willing to negotiate on the gym fees you paid but can't use since you got hurt IN THEIR GYM, i'd look for somewhere else to work out

in my gym, if you brought a doctor's note saying that you couldn't attend the gym, they'd suspend the membership until you were better.
