LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan’s attorney general says people looking to make 2015 a healthier year should make educated choices about health club and fitness center memberships.

Bill Schuette says in a statement that some “may see New Year’s resolutions as an opportunity to take advantage of people who are genuinely trying to make a positive lifestyle change.” Schuette says everyone should carefully review information before signing up.

A consumer alert that’s being issued by Schuette’s office is titled “Lose Weight, Not Money.”

His office’s Consumer Protection Division last year received 61 complaints from Michigan consumers about health clubs and fitness centers. The majority of the complaints involved discrepancies between what consumers say they were told and what signed contracts stated.
