What a waste of time and energy. My husband and I got caught up in Sweat's bait and switch. We received a ""Grand Prize winner"" mailing for 6 free months, 2 hours each of personal training, and 10 free passes for friends. We went to the gym in our gear ready to claim our prize and work out. After our gym tour we were told we would have to sign up for 12 or 18 months in order to gain our grand prize. We would need to pay $75 or $49 a month each (month-to-month or for 12 months), plus and upfront $149 each for joining. When we declined, we were offered a 3-day free trial (also super generous, given we can get a 7-day free trial just by visiting their website). Be clear, we expected some catch (we are not that naive), but just not such a jarring expense, given there was no asterisks or fine print on the mailer. So ""Grand Prize Winners"" out there, do the math and be prepared to pay $1000 - $1500 for your ""grand"" prize (or more - our offer was lower because we are a couple - what a deal!). Or, do like we are doing by reporting Sweat Fitness to the Better Business Bureau www.easternpa.bbb (dot) org and the Pennsylvania State Attorney General for Consumer Protection services (www.attorneygeneral.gov/complaints.aspx?id=451). At least you'll feel like a real winner for helping others.
