    No, curves is a women's only fitness club. Planet fitness is open to members of both sexes.

    Are you saying that it is unmanly to work out at a fitness club?

    Your accusations of Hate and Bigotry towards those who dont believe the way you do is far more hateful than a Woman complaining about undressing in front of a strange man.

    You're a hypocrite

    I don't know why thats so difficult to understand.

    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    A Michigan woman's Planet Fitness membership was revoked after she complained about a transgender person in the women's locker room.Yvette Cormier, a 48, said she was walking into the Midland Planet Fitness locker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.


    I am right in the middle....

    The complaining woman had a point. A "transgendered" person is not a cross dresser. If this individual was as she describes, the intent of fair access has been breached. What is to stop anyone from donning bra and pantyhose and getting a cheap thrill. The gym needs a better policy on what constitutes access to the women's change room, or perhaps investigate a third change room if that demographic is so important to them.

    On the other hand, she is an asshole. You do not go behind people's backs and campaign to get them tossed out, that's junior high crap. And if, as the story alludes, they received complaints about her they were right to take action, AFTER having addressed her about the issue.

    Transgendered is the new issue, and it raises numerous issues. It takes a long time, I understand, to make the transition, surgery etc. Where do they go in the meantime and how should business and government react? This business reacted badly and left the impression that transgendered have more say than regular people, and that any old dude can dress up and join as a woman.

    It's unmanly to work out an any club that gets upset if you do deadlifts.

    Re: Planet Fitness Revokes Woman's Membership After Transgender Complaint

    So Im so curious

    do people actually think this lady was NOT given doable solutions?
    after her initial complaint/concern which i understand and she was informed of the equality and no judgment policy and told she can use private stalls or not go in there at the same times was that not enough?

    since we can't go back in time and inform her PF doesnt discriminate once she came to the front desk, was made aware of thier policies what should PF have done?
