Well where I start...
I joined Esporta in January. I fancied a bit of luxury rather than going to my local leisure centre and they have a crèche which swayed it for me. Anyway I have no complaints with the gym; it was great, had a really good personal trainer and facilities were top notch.
I should hope so as they were double the price of my leisure centre!
Here is my problem. In May I fell pregnant, found out in June and immediately stopped going to the gym with the advice of my Midwife.
That might sound a little harsh, after all I am only pregnant and have not got a disease but I have my reasons.
I had many problems in my first pregnancy, I haemorrhaged on a few occasions after my placenta erupted and had a low lying placenta as a result which meant I spent most of my pregnancy in hospital and was put on bed rest if I wanted any chance of delivering my baby alive. I defied the odds and eventually gave birth to a healthy boy. It was one of the worst things I have ever had to go through.
I feel very lucky to have a healthy son already as I have PCOS and as a result have not had a period for 5 years making trying to conceiving hard but had lots of fun trying! :w00t: I know women who have tried for years and have not had the same outcome. Anyway I am babbling now!
I told my local health club this and said that I wanted to terminate my contract and my midwife will write a supporting letter. They were not interested and in the end wrote to their head office. My midwife wrote a supporting letter stating why I could no longer attend. A couple of weeks later I received a letter saying they will suspend my contract if I pay £10 per month!? Obviously I was not having this; there are medical reasons why I cannot work out.
Shortly after receiving the letter the same happened as it did with my last pregnancy and I was taken to hospital. This has happened twice since and I have been put on bed rest.
Throughout this I have still been paying by direct debit even though I have not been to the gym since the end of May. I have paid up until the end of August but then I cancelled my direct debit as I cannot afford to pay for something I am not using.
I wrote another letter, this time with a doctors report stating my condition and why I am unable to attend the gym. Recently had a letter back offering to suspend my contract until January free of charge. My baby wont be born until the end of January and will most probably be delivered by C-section due to the complications so I will need a bit of recovery time!
I dont know what else to do; I am useless when it comes to things like this. After all of this there is no way i will ever return to this gym! Anyone offer any advice?
