As a former employee and personal trainer of that company, I can say with
some certainty that you will not get your money back without legal action.

I recorded it to cdrom and have shipped copies to the concerned parties and
others who I believed would be supportive of my position.
With the US Postal Service raising postage rates again, who knows if the
cd's will ever reach their target audience?
In any case, attached this this note is the unformatted plain text from the
Letter to 24 Hour Fitness Management.
On the CD, the document is formatted in Adobe Acrobat and there's also a
