The Bad

  • Membership Cancellation

Membership Cancellation

It is important to note that each of the membership options that are made available from American Family Fitness require a 30–day cancellation advisement. If you do not reach out to American Family Fitness 30 days before your desired cancellation, it is probable that you will be charged for another month of other cancellations fees. When signing up for a membership, make sure that you are aware of the service that you are receiving as well as the stipulations that exist in the contract. Late payments may be required if you do not pay off what is owed on time.


The Bottom Line

American Family Fitness is a great option for those who live near the nine current locations that are running in Virginia. That being said, it is only the "perfect gym" for those that live near its' nine locations. The provision of basketball courts, other sport courts, a fully equipped gym, personal trainers, staff instructors, and other amenities make this fitness facility somewhere where you can start to take control of your physical health. If you are worried about wanting to use the gym for a long period of time, you may want to see if you can find a gym that is less expensive for a month-to-month membership plan. We recommend taking advantage of the free trial that this fitness facility offers to see if it would be a good fit for you.
