A woman in Midland, Michigan was suspicious of a manly “woman” in the locker room at her local Planet Fitness. Turns out Yvette Cormier was onto something, as this was a transgendered person who “self identified” as a woman, and as such, was using the women’s locker room.
After complaining to gym management, Cormier was then informed that they were revoking her membership for violating the companies “judgement free zone” policy. The policy allows for those to “self identify” as whatever gender they choose, and as such, can use whichever locker room they deem applicable.
A statement released by Planet Fitness says they are “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.”

“In expressing her concerns about the policy,” the statement continued, “the member in question exhibited behavior that club management deemed inappropriate and disruptive to other members, which is a violation of the membership agreement and as a result her membership was cancelled.”
