Woman Booted from Planet Fitness for Short Shorts

Andy Berg

How short is too short? That’s what one woman wants to know after she says she was kicked out of a Vermont Planet Fitness location.

Brandi Labounty, a real estate agent, was escorted by police from a Planet Fitness location after management advised her that her shorts were too short.

"I have worn these shorts almost a year without a problem," Labounty told Inside Edition. "It absolutely blows my mind that they would take it this far, bring it to this level."

Labounty said she was told by an employee that other members of the club were complaining about her shorts. When she told the employee she wasn’t leaving, the employee called the police.

According to Labounty, she sent her mother to the Planet Fitness with the same pair of shorts the next day. Her mother was apparently also asked to leave.

Labounty has since received a trespassing notice from Planet Fitness telling her she is "no longer allowed on the premises." She said her mom also got the same letter. 

Planet Fitness told Inside Edition that “the safety and wellbeing of our members and employees is our top priority. In this instance, a member was asked to leave for inappropriate behavior…. After conducting an internal review of the incident, the local franchisee has confirmed that they believe the appropriate action was taken in this matter."
