I'm at Planet, Claremont - because (and I don't mean to offend any other organisation - it was the impressions I got in 2000!)
they were offering a Special and my DD2 wanted to see what it was - it was R17 a month but for highly inconvenient times - she was at Hotel School.
Then the Salesman offered me National Premium Family membership for myself, 2 children over 18 for an excellent price and he pointed out all the loopholes in the contract, e.g. No Expiry Date, No Escalation!
They have 2 pools - one is a lap pool the other is mostly for Aqua and for learning. It is also kept warmer - a huge selling point for me.
Sport Science Institute seemed far too Sportsman oriented and gym members were there simply to cover the overheads! Some classes were incredibly dull - not a giggle to be heard
Virgin was either not here then - they hadnt baled out the group that was collapsing - or they were very new - oh, they didn't have a pool at that time, then they moved further away - double the distance from my house to the gym compared with Planet.
I am also on Discovery and if my contract is ever cancelled or rescinded, I shall exercise my right to relocate to V which is now in a fancy new building at the end of my road :D
Basically I am still at P because of price (3 adults for peanuts) and I can't afford to lose that contract. However V has a far bigger selection of classes and times!
We also have more than our fair share of gorillas who hog the equipment and make life unpleasant - that's why I do the classes and use the Squash Courts to practise my dance steps!
