Sorry Michael P, but the rules are the rules. Why should your son receive preferential treatment to access the facility for FREE when any other "non-member" shouldn't expect to walk in for gratis. It's great your son chose the military but that is far from any legitimate reason for free service. pay up like the rest of the fine citizens of Mason.
BTW, the Center is FANTASTIC! If it weren't then I wonder why LifeTime Fitness keeps bombarding our mailbox with new incentives to join. Perhaps they are felling the pressure of an equal quality facility w/o all the snobbish pomp and circumstance they offer.
