Ask her once, that's OK. Ask her twice? You've got problems!
A woman from the Bay Area in California canceled her Planet Fitness gym membership after not one, but two staff members asked her to cover up her body. The reason? Her toned body was too intimidating!
Tiffany Austin, who has been working out in order to recover from a car accident, was taken aback when one staff member approached her at the Richmond gym that she works out and said:
"Excuse me we've had some complaints you're intimidating people with your toned body. So can you put on a shirt?”
Not exactly the most tactful way to approach someone, but hey - if it's their policy…
…But Tiffany believes that she wasn't breaking any rules. As far as she could tell the only rule she knows about is the no string tanks policy.
Tiffany didn't want any trouble though so she agreed to put on a shirt. While she waiting however, ANOTHER staff member came up to her and told her to put on a shirt, too! Which broke the back of the camel for Tiffany!
She canceled her membership right then and there, and got her money back.
Planet Fitness claims that they have no policies against having too toned of a body, but they do have policies against revealing outfits. Dress codes are at the gym employee's discretion.
Still, Tiffany left the gym that day feeling singled out and intimidated — something Planet Fitness says they are not about!
Check out the video (above) and decide for yourself if Tiffany's outfit was too revealing or if it was the muscle tone that caused the angst!
