What exactly is a 'no-contract' gym membership?

Senior content producer - Health

'No contract' memberships do in fact usually involve contracts. That is, you sign a contract to join up and authorise direct debit payments - but there's no fixed term. However, be sure to check that there are no conditions or fees for cancelling your membership, as the ACCC warned gyms about this issue only last year.
