    Planet Fitness Revokes Woman's Membership After Transgender Complaint

    Mar 7, 2015, 5:42 PM ET
    A Michigan woman's Planet Fitness membership was revoked after she complained about a transgender person in the women's locker room.Yvette Cormier, a 48, said she was walking into the Midland Planet Fitness locker room last Saturday when she saw someone "dressed like a man." The person was wearing a wig and "a little bit of blush," but was "huge" and appeared "very manly," Cormier told ABC News today. "I just stopped right there in my tracks," she said. "It was a man for sure." Cormier, who had been a Planet Fitness member for two months, said she went to the front desk immediately. The man at the desk told her that Planet Fitness policy is "whatever gender you feel you are, that's the locker room you're allowed to go in," she said. "And then he said, 'We've had lots of complaints about him but we told him to go change in a stall,'" Cormier said. "He said, 'if you're uncomfortable with that you can wait until he's done in there,'" she said. "I stood back and said, 'How about he waits until I'm done in the women's locker room. Or get a unisex bathroom.' He asked if I would like to talk to the manager and I said, 'I'm calling corporate.'" When she called the corporate offices, she said, someone there confirmed that the person at the front desk was correct about Planet Fitness policies. "I wouldn't have signed up for this gym if I knew that ahead of time," Cormier said, adding that the gym is "failing to protect me if anything happens in those locker rooms with a man." She said she went back to the gym the next few days and "told everyone in the locker room what happened." She said everyone she talked to "was appalled." On Thursday, Cormier said, Planet Fitness Corporate called and revoked her membership immediately. "They said, 'You are talking to people about him in the women's locker room. You are making people upset.' That's my whole point," she said. "I'm telling them and warning them because you are not doing that. You allow men in there, and we are appalled by it." Planet Fitness Director of Public Relations McCall Gosselin said the gym is "committed to creating a non-intimidating, welcoming environment for our members. Our gender identity non-discrimination policy states that members and guests may use all gym facilities based on their sincere self-reported gender identity."






    Wow so this lady made a complete ass of herself hahaha
    I love that she made such an ass of herself and a stink of this that HER membership was cancelled. That's awesome. I'd like to know what danger she was talking about.
    umm no the guy thinking he has the right to go into a womens bathroom is what is screwed up. the fact that you fail to address this women's concern and right to be upset with having a man in her locker room is what is sad.

    this women should sue. the gym failed to provide a safe and protective environment for women by allowing men to enter the women's locker room.

    what is the LBGT MO?
    Where is the bullying? the only bullying was what the lady did and it got her membership pulled

    facts win again
    No, you didn't.

    You claimed she made bigoted claims and then posted a bunch of links.

    The bullying is throwing around insults and accusations just becakse someone disagrees with your opinion.

    Now what exactly did she say that was " bigoted " ?

    guys are guys and need to stay out of women's locker rooms. they aren't women never will be. the fact you keep deluding yourself doesn't change facts.

    Its a really stupid and twisted policy and she had every right not to feel threatened in their WOMEN'S dressing room.

    She had every right to assume that she wouldn't be undressing next to some strange man.

    She has every right to be upset. Thus she can cancel her membership.

    this women should sue. the gym failed to provide a safe and protective environment for women by allowing men to enter the women's locker room.
    I doubt she would have a case. The gym is a private club they probably didn't charge her for the membership one they revoked it. And she suffered no damage from being in the locker room with a transsexual. I don't know what she would sue for.

    A lot of what made her upset is that they weren't informing members of this policy when they signed up.

    So my question to you is this:

    if the club management determined that because the woman was intimidated by a transgender man in the woman's locker room, and because his use of the woman's locker room was deemed disruptive to other members, they terminated his membership, would you be complaining about their policy?
    oh ok so you;ll just ignore all my questions and ask me some . . . lol awesome


    based on your info i dont know what me personal feelings would be

    for your made up scenario
    define "intimidated"
    define "disruptive"

    then give me the options the person has like this lady had.

    but to answer what I think you are getting at . . . .

    if a gym had what IMO would be a discriminatory policy and the mere presence of a transgender caused intimidation and disruptiveness AND the transgender person had the option of using private stalls so the intimidation and disruptiveness wouldnt happen but refused and choose to say everybody else should do that and denied that option.
    Then call corporate and gets the same answer and still refuses.
    THen for the next four days approaches members saying bigoted and hateful things that broke policies
    then is asked to stop and refuses


    YES i would support lost membership for breaking the rules, making an ass out of yourself and denying the use of legitimate opinions just like the stupid lady in the OP did

    You have every right to feel that way. But she doesn't really have any rights to anything within somebody else's club.

    She had every right to assume that she wouldn't be undressing next to some strange man.
    The fitness club is a private membership club. I don't think she has such rights in somebody else's property.
