If i have a contract and dont pay what happens

I signed up for a personal trainer and never got treated the way i thought i should for the 100 a month. I was suppose to recieve a food and exersice outline of what to eat and do when i wasnt with the trainer. I was suppose to recieve just one trainer but got multiple so i nevver got to know my trainer and then when i finally got one he didnt show up. They didnt watch me correctly becasue they were to busy texting on there phones and i hurt my back. What should i do pay them the 500 dollars i owe for unattended sessions or should i bring this issue to court?

The first thing you should do is have a friendly conversation with the owner or manager of the gym about your problem. See if there is a way for you to resolve the situation to your satisfaction but have an idea of what you would like that resolution to be first. Would you like to be released from the contract or would you like to give the gym an opportunity to make good on the terms of the contract, for example?

Do not threaten a lawsuit during the conversation because that is apt to make the person you speak with defensive. Plus, you really ought to have an attorney review the contract you signed to make sure that you actually have grounds for a lawsuit. It's possible that the contract is worded in such a way that you do not. In that case, if you don't pay the money the contract obligates you to pay, you could end up being the one who is sued.
