Body too toned for Planet Fitness?

tootoned 600Tiffany Austin was just hoping to get back into shape after a car accident and, like so many others, went to her local Richmond, Calif., Planet Fitness in hopes of working it out ... only to be told by an employee that she was "intimidating" others, according to KTVU.

That's right. Austin was allegedly told by one of the branch's staff members that her toned body was intimidating other gymgoers and was asked to put on a baggier gym-issued shirt over her more flattering workout gear.

"We've had some complaints you're intimidating people with your toned body. So can you put on a shirt?" the staffer said, according to the news station. Shrugging it off – although she didn't see the issue with her crop top – Austin amicably agreed to put on a shirt.

However, while she was waiting for staff to bring the T-shirt, another gym employee came up to her and repeated the complaints—so at that point Austin got back her money and left.

"I felt intimidated and harassed by the place that says no intimidation," she told KTVU.

Planet Fitness prides itself on slamming "gymtimidation" and for being known to kick out individuals who violate rules that could possibly make the Average Joe feel intimidated – even having an alarm that goes off whenever someone does something that calls attention to themselves, such as dropping weights or breathing too heavily. Its gyms also ban tank tops—a policy that Planet Fitness is adamantly standing by.

The company told the local station that it stands by its dress code but that, if Austin was indeed targeted for her toned stomach, it "wasn't in line with Planet Fitness."

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic
but I had to share it with someone!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts
more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and
video clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its niche.

Terrific blog!

So, someone thinks' it's wrong for a black woman to naturally look good! We Are Blessed Like That! The thing that I see with the other race's of women, is, some of them do too much strengthneous exercise while wearing, tennis Shoes. Over the years, it is my belief; that certain types of tennis shoes, does females body wrong. Some women develop big muscles, that resemble those of men. If you want a good looking body, one must be careful of the way they treat that body.
