Q. Signed contract but was told different information
A: Often there is a provision in a contract that says verbal representations (what they say to you outside of the contract) are not controlling and the terms of the written agreement are controlling. Does your contract with the gym say that it would be 50% for the remaining months? If so, it may be that the terms of the contract control over what you were told by an employee.
