Bay Area resident Tiffany Austin was excited to get back in shape after recovering from a recent car accident, but when she headed into Planet Fitness in Richmond, Calif., no one was amused to see her in a pink crop top and workout pants. In fact, they found her get-up to be "too intimidating."
According to KTVU, it only took about 15 minutes after she hopped on a treadmill for a staffer to approach her, who said, "excuse me we've had some complaints you're intimidating people with your toned body. So can you put on a shirt?" Umm...what?
Still wanting to get her workout on, Tiffany agreed to put on the shirt. But, as she headed over to get it, another staff member approached her about her body. At that point, she asked for her money back for her membership and left.
As it turns out, Planet Fitness has a policy of banning "gymtimidation," meaning they want members to feel comfortable getting in shape in the gym without being "subjected to the hardcore look-at-me-attitude that exists in too many gyms." In other words, leave your crop tops and muscle tees at home.
