What to do if I have a legal contract with a gym and have simply requested a copy of it but am getting the runaround?
Question Details: After the first 2 attempts with no success I made a third trip after being told it would be ready anytime after 10:00 a.m. I went in after 11:00 a.m. and found that he deactivated my card.
There is not necessarily a right to get a copy of the contract (unless there was some promise, agreement, etc. that you would). However, whatever its terms were, they have to be honored, which means that if you have paid for access, they cannot simply deactivate your card. If they breach their obligations, such as by denying you use, services, or access which you have paid for, that would be a material (or important) breach which would in turn let you out of your obligations (e.g. to pay); alternatively, you could sue them for damages (compensation), such as to get back any dues you've already paid, but for which you're not getting value (because they deactivated your card) or to force them to honor their obligations (such as to give you access).
