Can I just stop paying membership fees?

Can't we just tell the gym we're cancelling the membership and tell MasterCard to stop paying them?

My woman's quitting her gym (http://www.nyhrc.com/). She called them and was told she'd need to personally visit the gym, fill out a form, mail it back to them via certified mail (!), and then in 30 days (!!) her membership would be cancelled. Really, it's pretty absurd.
I suggested she just tell the gym she's quitting and then tell her credit card company to not pay them any more. (You can do that, right?)
How unwise would this be?
