Thank you; according to statute 13:45A‐25 et seq, the contract must allow for cancellation if the member moves more than 25 miles from the gym or an affiliate gym.

That statute is here

This is a summation of the consumer's rights and obligations when it comes to such memberships:

Please note that a consumer and the gym may negotiate an alternate contract; for example, one with higher monthly fees, but for a lesser contractual time period; there is no required minimum; but a contract cannot be longer than 3 years.
