Woman Left Confused After Being Told To Cover Up At Gym

A woman claims she was told to cover up by gym staff as her shirt was 'too short'.

TikTok user Alana, or @pennevodkaplease as she's known on the platform, visited the New Jersey-based gym wearing pretty standard workout gear - a slightly cropped top and some leggings.

However, she was told by staff she was in breach the dress code and would need to cover up or leave.

Posting on TikTok, Alana shared a mirror selfie in which she was wearing a red t-shirt and some black leggings alongside the words: "Planet Fitness employees telling me this outfit broke their dress code."

Captioning the clip, she wrote: "Time to find a new gym."

Looking at the outfit, it's hard to see how it could be deemed too revealing and TikTok users were confused about what rules Alana had broken.

One person asked: "What's their explanation? I see nothing remotely wrong."

Alana responded: "They said my shirt was too short so I should pull my shirt down more and my leggings up more."

Others jumped in to defend the TikToker's choice of clothing, with one person commenting: "That's ridiculous.

"I wear a sports bra and short to the gym - you're literally just trying to work out, what you wear shouldn't matter."

Another said: "Yeah, right there on the spot I'd tell them to cancel my membership."

While a third person wrote: "I thought it was a 'no judgement zone'."

Planet Fitness has multiple locations across the US - according to its website, it does have a dress code, but it doesn't appear to be super strict.

The website reads: "We're all for people expressing themselves, but do ask that clothing that may be perceived as intimidating, revealing, or offensive not be worn in the club.

"We also do not allow clothing that may present safety hazards or damage equipment.

"Examples of clothing that is not allowed include: open-toed shoes or sandals; mud-caked, greasy, or soiled shoes or clothing; jeans or pants with prominent grommets and clothing with messaging that a reasonable person may find offensive or otherwise inappropriate."

LADbible has approached Planet Fitness for comment.
