Teen’s Tank Top Creates Gym Controversy
WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich (April 3, 2014) – A teenager in metro Detroit is calling out Planet Fitness’ ‘judgment free zone’ slogan after she was kicked out of a local gym.
Allison Roth, 17, told Fox 2′s Andrea Isom she usually wears a t-shirt to the gym, but recently opted to wear the tank top instead.
During that visit to the gym, Roth says she was approached by a female employee who says another gym member complained about the teen’s attire.
That’s when Roth says she canceled her membership and left the gym.
According to Roth and her mother, they were never told about a Planet Fitness dress code.
Isom spoke with other gym members. Some told her they wear whatever they want, others said they were told at sign-up their outfits couldn’t reveal too much skin.
Planet Fitness issued a statement to Fox 2, saying: “Planet Fitness locations are owned and operated by individual franchisees. We have been made aware of this incident and we are looking into the situation.”
