Q: Recommend gym in Futian

Hi, I will be moving to Shenzhen at the start of next month and am trying to decide whether or not to find an apartment with a gym / fitness centre or just try to find one locally.


I plan to live near Yitian station / Fuqiang Road. Can anyone recommend a decent gym in that area? How much is it monthly?


Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if they have monthly fees. The gym I'm with had me sign a contract for at least a year or two. I visited another gym and they had the same principles written down. You had to sign up with their gym for at least a year. They might have the 6 month plan, but I haven't heard of the monthly fees that you may be accustomed to back home. Wherever it is you stayed before. 


My gym has a pool, free classes including bike, yogo, combat ,dance, hip hop etc., It also has weights free weights and machine weights. My cost was less than 2000 kuai for 2 years. 


The nearby gym I visited had a price of 4000 kuai to up to 100,000 rmb. They offered massage therapists in some of the packages...

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
