Planet Fitness Cancels Woman’s Membership After Complaining Of Transgender Woman In Locker Room


MIDLAND, MI (WLNS) – A business which sells itself on being non-judgmental is losing clients because of a controversial policy.

A Planet Fitness gym in Midland kicked a woman out of the gym after she complained about a transgender woman in a locker room. The woman tells our sister station WNEM in Saginaw she thought the person was a man in the woman’s locker room and when she went to the front desk she was asked to leave and had her membership revoked.

Company officials say she violated the no judgment zone policy. Now other women are leaving the gym on their own because they do not feel safe.

In a statement, Planet Fitness says their policy states members and guests may use all gym facilities based on their self-reported gender identity
