My mother recently posted this on Facebook, but I'm interested in terms of the legalities regarding communication and observation.
Earlier this year I joined a gym. Small one, based in local town, training in groups of four or fewer. Paid in advance for six months, because that is how their membership works. I stopped going in July because of an injury, and started back in October. Round about the same time I returned, I started going to another gym as well to see a personal trainer. This second gym is closer, has no stairs, has a car park and the trainer is cheaper. Also, the work I do is different and I find it more enjoyable, and it is pay as you go. But because I had paid in advance I arranged to go to gym 1 once a week, and to see the new trainer in gym 2 once a week as well. Just had a call from gym 1 to say someone had seen me in gym 2(!) and had gym 1 done something to upset me. Is this normal gym protocol? It has seriously pissed me off. Surely you can go to as many gyms as you want?
I'm not intending to take any action legal or otherwise, I'm just curious on the potential legalities/ethics of the observations etc.
Please feel free to edit the question title or content as I'm finding it hard to word. We are in the UK.
