Feedback at 5:00: Feeling Intimidated Or Judged At The Gym?

Posted: Updated:

Millions of Americans are considered obese.

Medical experts call it a medical epidemic.

But a woman trying to exercise at a California gym says her fit shape was in violation of the company's code.

Tiffany Austin is recovering after a car accident.

Her doctor recently told her to start walking more. So she signed up with Planet Fitness to begin walking on the treadmill.

A staff member told her, her toned body was actually intimidating other people in the gym and was asked to put on a shirt.

Austin says she was told wearing a half-shirt and capri pants was in violation of the gym's code.

Planet Fitness's mantra is "no judgments."

What do you think of the move? Have you ever felt intimidated, or judged at a gym?
