    How did you sign a contract if you are 17? Tell those dudes to piss off!

    First you need a mentality change.
    This is the Western world, You pay them money for a service that they provide, thus making you the customer. If you don't like the service anymore or feel that the service that they provided isn't adequat for you anymore, just cancel the payments and stop using the service.
    It's a business and customer is still King!

    If they would be teaching you out of the kindness of their heart without charging anything, you would/could be stuck with a moral dilemma, but this isn't the case.

    So see if your parents have signed a contract for you, block the transfers from your bank, pay the cancellation fee (if it's legit) and tell them that you're stopping. Case closed.
    If you, as a minor, have signed a contract, it will not be valid, so just stop the withdraws and give them the finger.

    Umm, yeah. What they said ^^^. You're the customer bro. They work for you. You don't owe them any explanation at all. Get to stepping. Cancel the bank draw. Come back and kick their asses in two years. The end.

    Tell them you're cancelling. Leave. Tell your bank not to tender them anymore payments. You're probably making a much bigger deal out of the issue than it really is.

    My dad signed the contract, since I am a minor. Unfortunatly, I am still paying, not him. They don't see it as the customer is key, they see it as, We Refuse the right to pay your end package, which is predatory buisness, and has been mentioned in another of my posts. I do like the idea of kicking their ass in 2 years.

    It's very easy. They don't have to like it. Stop paying them. If they want to go to court, which they won't, then let them.

    Why are your parents not advising you how to handle this? That's what parents are for.

    Tell them in a certified letter you are canceling, and that you are amicable to paying the cancellation fee but not continuing to pay the monthly dues.

    I personally would tell them this in person before the letter arrives, without mentioning that a letter duplicating the information is en route.

    I would, during that talk in person, inform them very simply you like the gym but want to focus on competition.

    Failing that, feel free to tell them you're moving for college. Most contracts have a 25 mile clause.

    Tell them you just found out you are HIV positive and you don't want to endanger their students or themselves.

    I guarantee they will cancel your contract on the spot!

    If you have it in you to fib a little bit ;-)

    Your two threads are now merged. Your newest question is a continuation of the MABS thread.

    Merged:
    How do I Tell My KM instructor its time to go?

    It is back in MABS, post appropriately.
