Gym Demands Woman to Cover Up Because She’s Too Toned [Video/Poll]
You can go to the gym to get in shape. Just don’t get in too good a shape.
A Planet Fitness in Richmond, Calif., asked a female member to cover up her body while she exercised because her body it’s so toned that it intimidated people.
Tiffany Austin claims that while she was working out (for the first time at this Planet Fitness), an employee approached her and asked that she put on a shirt after other members because they “had some complaints you’re intimidating people with your toned body.”
It’s somewhat ironic, since Planet Fitness bills itself as a ‘judgment-free zone’ and won’t allow ‘gyntimidation.’ Strangely, Austin, who asked for her money back, says she felt like she was being intimated by the way Planet Fitness dealt with her.
Planet Fitness’ corporate office stands by the company’s dress code, but did admit that if Austin was singled out for her body that “is not in line with the Planet Fitness policy whatsoever.”
