don't we deserve a discount?

My gym is renovating the showers for the next 4 weeks. For someone who likes to work out in the morning before work, this is a huge inconvenience, especially since the gym is a 20 minute walk from my house. But here is the kicker- don't you think we should all get discounts? I mean part of the membership price includes the cost of hot water, and there is no hot water for four weeks- no showers, no sauna, no whirlpool. Plus, I also pay $10/month for towel service. If there's no wet area, I don't need a bath towel, now do I? Am I wrong to think this is wrong? I mean, tonight I am going to ask if I can cut my towel service for a month. But I've heard people talking in the locker room and one of my friends goes to this gym and everyone's pretty peeved.

    If they're not providing one or more of the services you are paying for, then you absolutely deserve a discount.

    hell yeah you deserve a discount!

    why pay 100% of the membership fee if you don't have access to 100% of the gym?

    and it's not like a treadmill is down... the showers are a pretty big deal!

    Yes, you deserve a discount, my gym closes for around two weeks every December for maintenance and such and we don't get any discount for that. I find it to be really unfair having to pay full price for something if you are not getting the full package.

    i'd give you a discount and then when the showers are renovated i'd charge you extra to use the new fancy powerful showers ;)
    oh scary... 40000 morbidly obese christians wearing fanny packs invading europe is probably the least scariest thing since I watched an edited version of The Care Bears movie in an extremely brightly lit cinema.
  • well you don't get anything unless you ask ;)

    I'd imagine you would... but try asking first and THEN if they say no, come back here and complain :)
    The Astoria??? Orgazmic!
    Verona??? it's all surmountable

    Wembley? We all believe!
    Copenhagen?? your light made us stars
    Chicago 07? And love
    What a different life
    Had I not found this love with you

    well I wanted to check first and see if people thought it was a crazy thing to ask for.

    definitely not! Cos it's a very big inconvenience! You HAVE to shower after the gym :o some people may choose not to go for that reason alone.

    You should probably read your gym contract to see what it promises. It might have a disclaimer about repairs/renovations and such.
