    The issue turns on the terms of the TOS, including the choice of law provision. Without that information it's difficult for any lawyer to give an opinion.

    Without knowing the terms of the contract, we can't say what you should've done (if anything) or what the gym did wrong (if anything). But, if what you say is accurate, you may have a Connecticut unfair trade practice (CUTPA) claim against the gym for their unethical and outrageous business practices, in which case you could be awarded punitive damages and attorneys' fees. So, at the very least, the leverage pendulum could swing in your favor to negotiate a refund of your payments.
