Six emails begging me to come back to Equinox

This is the 5th or 6th email begging me to rejoin the gym I was a member of from two years ago. The same gym that bait and switched me saying I could cancel at any time and then said it was a 2-3 year contract.

I guess the 150 a month type gyms are now on the floor and reduced to begging for members as opposed to threatening them.
