Ole, isn't there a Nirvana (wow I forgot the Chinese name already) on the South side of that street?
I used to go to Oe at 珠江帝景. I paid 1500 for the year, but after going a couple times I got used to coming in through the back door and never showed my card to anyone. I brought friends in with me on several occassions and never got bothered by anyone... Maybe you can get a similar "arrangement" with your gym?
Or just go in at a different time and talk to a salesperson who's less of a cunt. They all want their commission.
NIvara in Zhao Long hotel.
