absolutely horrible experience at World Gym - by Taipei Main MRT: You cannot simply walk in and ask for a price and leave. We were stuck there for over 30 minutes+, while the guy walked us around the gym and showed us the wonderful: bathrooms, the tiny hall where people warm up, and bunch of other bullshit.
When I asked if they had specific equipment by name... he didnt understand. Then we were brought over to this machine for a scientific analysis of my body weight... total bullshit. two metal sticks in my hand.. standing on a metal plate with no socks on...He was literally reading his sales speech from cards... very nervous rookie sales guy.
to the point I grabbed the paperwork that I filled out and wrote in giant letters: 1 year $? 6 month $? 1 month$? The price is ofcourse designed for people who probably will not come back to the gym... so the deep payment is up from like nearly $4,000NT for the first month, then $1,288 NT after that.
So I asked if there is a discount if I pay for the year up front.. and ofcourse he says no to that.
He is also not a manager, and no manager was on duty at the time.
The free weight section was very small compared to all the monstrous foo-foo nautilus equipment. We left disappointed.
They wont negotiate with you.. and will threaten you with the bullshit of this is a one time best sales price.. if you come back tomorrow the price is double. Used Car sales tactics. f'k that.
