PLANET FITNESS POLICIES

Providing guidance and insight into how you can enjoy our Judgement Free Zone®.

Welcome to Planet Fitness! Whether you’re a first-time gym user or a longtime member, we’re here to provide a workout environment in which anyone - and everyone - can be comfortable. We’ve created this policy guide to provide guidance and insight into how you can enjoy our Judgement Free Zone® and make the most of your membership.

Any questions related to the contents of this policy guide or its interpretation should be directed to your club manager or supervisor. Planet Fitness reserves the right to modify any policy or club rule at any time and in its sole discretion, with or without prior notice. But most importantly we want you to know you belong and our friendly team members are here to help when you need it.

Planet Fitness does not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any person on its premises on the basis of race, national origin, ancestry, color, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, disability, or any other basis protected by law. All members will have access to restroom and locker room facilities that correspond to their sincerely held, self-reported gender identity to the extent permitted by applicable law.

Who We Are:

Planet Fitness is more than your neighborhood fitness center – we are the Judgement Free Zone®. At Planet Fitness, we celebrate and champion diversity and provide an environment where everyone feels accepted, respected and like they belong. Planet Fitness prohibits discrimination and harassment that is based on gender identity or gender expression in the workplace and in our clubs. The following is our corporate policy regarding the accommodation of our members and team members in terms of their gender identity.

Terminology:

Gender Identity: a person’s sense of self as male, female, or non-binary. This may or may not be related to the person’s sex assigned at birth.

• Transgender: an umbrella term that refers to any person whose gender identity as male or female is different than the gender identity typically associated with the person’s assigned sex at birth.

• Non-binary: an umbrella term that encompasses people who do not identify exclusively as a man or a woman. This would include identities such as agender, bigender, genderqueer or gender-fluid.

Gender Expression: external appearance of one's gender identity, usually expressed through behavior, clothing, haircut, voice, or other physical attribute which may or may not conform to socially defined behaviors and characteristics typically associated with being either masculine or feminine.

Gender Pronouns: the terms people choose to refer to themselves that reflect their gender identity. These might be he/him, she/her or gender-neutral pronouns such as they/them. Knowing and using a person's correct pronouns fosters inclusion, makes people feel respected and valued, and affirms their gender identity – and doing so is important to our inclusive environment and is in line with our policies.

Policy Provisions:

• Planet Fitness does not tolerate verbal or physical harassment of any member or team member for any reason.

• If any member experiences harassment, it should be reported by the member to a Planet Fitness team member as soon as possible. The Planet Fitness team member must take immediate action to address the situation and to ensure the safety of the member.

• If a Planet Fitness team member harassed the member, it must be reported to the appropriate supervisor(s) immediately, and the Planet Fitness supervisor(s) must take immediate action to address the situation and to ensure the safety of the member. Issues not resolved to a member’s satisfaction should be directed to info@planetfitness.com.

• Team members who have experienced harassment by other team members or members should report harassment in accordance with their ownership group’s reporting guidelines, which may be found in your employee handbook or similar HR document.

• In the instance of harassment of a member or a team member, the allegations should be investigated, the situation assessed to determine necessary changes moving forward, and appropriate action should be taken.

2. Transgender and nonbinary persons applying for membership will not be turned away, referred to another fitness facility, or treated in a discriminatory fashion because of their gender identity. Transgender and nonbinary persons applying for employment will not be turned away or treated in a discriminatory fashion because of their gender identity. We have uniform standards for membership and employment regardless of gender identity and/or expression.

3. Members and team members will be treated according to their self-reported gender identity. If a serious concern or significant doubt about the bona fides of a person’s transgender or nonbinary status/identity arises and which the team member can articulate, the team member shall address their concerns with the member. If discussion with the member fails to resolve the serious concern or doubt, the club may ask for external evidence of the member’s asserted gender identity. If it is confirmed that a member is acting in bad faith and improperly asserts a gender identity, they may be asked to leave and their membership may be terminated.

4. Private information such as a person’s identification as transgender or nonbinary and any medical information must be treated as confidential.

5. Subject to Section Three above, all members and team members may use Planet Fitness locker room facilities and programs based on their self-reported gender identity; these facilities include bathrooms, showers, and all other facilities separated by sex. Wherever possible, Planet Fitness clubs should maintain private changing areas in each locker room for the comfort of all members and team members. Where applicable, gender-neutral bathrooms may also be made available as needed for the privacy and comfort of members and team members.

Use of a gender-neutral bathroom is voluntary.

6. Planet Fitness team members and members should address transgender and nonbinary members and other team members with preferred names, titles, pronouns, and other terms consistent with their self-reported gender identity. If a team member or member accidentally misgenders someone, please apologize. Ask the member or team member for their preferred pronouns and use those going forward.

7. The resolution of any conflict or question arising under this policy is at the sole discretion of Planet Fitness team members. Planet Fitness reserves the right to take appropriate action up to and including termination of a person’s membership or employment immediately for any violation of this policy or a club rule.

Planet Fitness does not tolerate verbal or physical harassment of any member or team member for any reason. Violations by members may result in cancellation of membership.

If any member experiences harassment:

  • The incident of harassment shall be reported to a Planet Fitness team member or manager as soon as possible

  • Issues that are not resolved in a manner satisfactory to a member may also be directed to info@planetfitness.com

PURPOSE AND SCOPE 

At Planet Fitness, we believe acting ethically and responsibly is not only the right thing to do, but also the right way to do business. Planet Fitness has developed a Global Vendor Code of Conduct (“Vendor Code”) to clarify our global expectations in the areas of business integrity, labor practices, associate health and safety, and environmental management. Planet Fitness’ Vendor Code is intended to complement the company’s other policies and standards referenced therein. Any vendor, contractor, consultant, agent or third party supplier (collectively “Vendor”) that directly or indirectly provides goods and services to Planet Fitness is expected to follow the Vendor Code. 

BUSINESS CONDUCT PRINCIPLES

Planet Fitness expects its vendors to conduct business responsibly, with integrity, honesty, and transparency, and to adhere to the following principles:

1. Maintain awareness and comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the countries of their operations.

2. Compete fairly for Planet Fitness’ business.

Planet Fitness is committed to conducting business legally and ethically within the framework of a free enterprise system. Corrupt arrangements with customers, vendors, government officials, franchisees or other third parties are strictly prohibited. “Corruption” generally refers to obtaining, or attempting to obtain, a personal benefit or business advantage through improper or illegal means, including without limitation bribes and/or kickbacks. 

3. Encourage a diverse workforce and provide a workplace free from discrimination, harassment or any other form of abuse. 

Planet Fitness vendors shall create a work environment in which employees and business partners feel valued and respected for their contributions. Harassment, including unwelcome verbal, visual, physical, or other conduct of any kind that creates an intimidating, offensive or hostile work environment will not be tolerated. Employment decisions must be based on qualifications, skills, performance, and experience. 

4. Treat employees fairly, including with respect to wages, working hours and benefits. 

Planet Fitness vendors shall comply with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements and will generally apply sound employee relations practices. Working hours, wages, benefits will be consistent with laws and industry standards, including those pertaining to minimum wages, overtime, other elements of compensation, and legally mandated benefits. 

5. Prohibit all forms of forced or compulsory labor

Planet Fitness vendors shall maintain and promote fundamental human rights. Employment decisions will be based on free choice and there may be no coerced or prison labor, and no use of physical punishment or threats of violence or other forms of physical, sexual, psychological or verbal abuse as a method of discipline or control. 

6. Prohibit use of child labor. 

Vendors shall adhere to the minimum employment age limit defined by national law or regulation, and comply with relevant International Labor Organization (ILO) standards. In no instance shall a vendor permit children to perform work that exposes them to undue physical risks that can harm physical, mental, or emotional development or improperly interfere with their schooling needs. 

7. Respect employees’ legal rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining. 

Consistent with applicable law, Planet Fitness vendors shall respect employees’ rights to join or refrain from joining associations and worker organizations. 

8. Provide safe and healthy working conditions. 

Planet Fitness vendors shall proactively manage health and safety risks to provide an incident-free environment where occupational injuries and illnesses are prevented. Vendors must implement management systems and controls that identify hazards and assess and control risk related to their specific industry. Also, vendors shall provide potable drinking water and adequate restrooms; fire exits and essential fire safety equipment; emergency aid kits and access to emergency response including environmental, fire and medical. 

9. Carry out operations with care for the environment and comply with all applicable environmental laws and regulations. 

The potential environmental impacts of daily business decision-making processes should be considered along with opportunities for conservation of natural resources, recycling, source reduction and pollution control to ensure cleaner air and water and to reduce landfill wastes. 

10. Maintain accurate financial books and business records in accordance with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements and accepted accounting practices. 

11. Deliver products and services meeting applicable quality and safety standards. 

Planet Fitness is committed to providing high quality and safe products. Vendors involved in any aspect of developing, handling, packaging or storing our products are expected to: 

  • Know and comply with the product quality standards, policies, specifications, and procedures that apply to the products produced at your location 

  • Follow and adhere to good manufacturing practices and testing protocols 

  • Comply with all applicable federal, state, and local safety laws and regulations 

  • Report issues immediately to Planet Fitness that could negatively affect the quality or public perception of a Planet Fitness product 

12. Compliance with this Vendor Code is a required condition of doing business with Planet Fitness. Vendor should support compliance by establishing appropriate management processes and cooperating with compliance audits as required by Planet Fitness. 

13. Observe Planet Fitness’ policies regarding gifts and entertainment and conflicts of interest when dealing with Planet Fitness employees and franchisees. 

Unless there is prior written approval from Planet Fitness’ CEO, CFO or CAO, Planet Fitness vendors are prohibited from providing or offering gifts, monetary equivalents, objects of value, entertainment or preferential treatment – directly or indirectly – of value greater than $50 USD to Planet Fitness employees or franchisees that could inappropriately influence Planet Fitness’ business decisions or gain an unfair advantage. Indirect gifts include gifts to family members or a favorite charity. 

Likewise, Planet Fitness employees or franchisees may not offer excessive gifts or entertainment to others whose business the company may be seeking. Planet Fitness employees and franchisees may accept business-related meals, entertainment, token gifts or favors only when the value involved is nominal and clearly will not place employees or franchisees under any real or perceived obligation to the donor. 

14. All Vendors shall comply with all guidelines issued by Planet Fitness relating to access to Planet Fitness facilities, offices, franchisees and employees. No Vendor shall market, directly or indirectly, any product or service to Planet Fitness employees or franchisees without express permission from the Planet Fitness corporate Vendor Management Department.

9. REPORTING
If you become aware of an ethics issue in your organization, please contact your Franchise Business Coach.

Respect and courtesy are essential components of a comfortable, Judgement Free Zone®. Please respect the personal space of others, keep the equipment in its designated area, and if you’re resting between sets, allow other members to use the equipment.  After you’ve finished your workout, we ask that members please be courteous and wipe down the equipment, and return any weights or other accessories to the designated storage areas.

If you have any questions, ask any team member for guidance. We also offer free fitness training with a certified fitness trainer. They can answer questions and work with you to create a fitness program to help you achieve your fitness goals.

The Judgement Free® policy is put into place in order to help maintain a Judgement Free® environment within the club at all times.

By Planet Fitness® definition, a Lunk® is one who exhibits behaviors that work against our Judgement Free® atmosphere. Lunk-like actions are often intimidating to most members who just want to get in a good workout. While we welcome everyone, we are built on the premise of no intimidation.

Lunk-like actions include behaviors such as:

Grunting - Excessively loud displays of effort including grunting, yelling, groaning

Dropping weights - Intentionally dropping weights to the ground after the last rep of a set

Showcasing - Flexing, strutting, or making an effort to attract attention

Judging - Mocking, criticizing, or making negative comments related to another person's appearance, experience, ability, knowledge of equipment, etc.

The Lunk Alarm® is a siren used to enforce our Judgment Free® policy. The Lunk Alarm® helps maintain a Judgement Free® atmosphere by stopping a Lunk® in his/her tracks.

Members play a role in supporting both the Judgement Free® atmosphere and safety on the club floor. Athletic footwear and appropriate clothing must be worn at all times.

  • Planet Fitness strives to provide a safe and comfortable environment for all members. As such, clothing and tattoos with offensive messages and clothing that may present health or safety hazards or damage club equipment, is not allowed. For example, 

    • Open-toed shoes or sandals pose a safety hazard for members working out;

    • Jeans or pants with prominent grommets may damage equipment; and

    • Clothing/tattoos with hateful, lewd or offensive messaging undermines our welcoming environment

  • Members may exercise in a wide variety of attire. Crop tops, sports bras, bralettes, short shorts, long pants, collared shirts are all welcome! 

  • Water bottles/jugs of all sizes (including gallon sizes) are allowed, as long as they have a screw-on top. Press-on tops such as those found on certain gallon jugs are not allowed, as these present a spill hazard. 

  • All personal belongings must be kept in lockers Bags and any clothing not in use are not allowed on the club floor. Bags and clothing on the club floor present potential safety hazards and are targets for theft

The day fee is the fee a non-member/non PF Black Card® guest pays for use of the gym for one day. The day fee allows potential members to try the facility before committing to a membership. The full amount of the day fee applies towards membership fees if the visitor joins that location within 30 days of the visit (valid receipt required).

Day fee guests must be at least 18 years old with a valid driver’s license or photo ID. Individuals under 18 may not purchase a day pass even if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

  • $10 and $15 Non-Reciprocal members (NR) may use other Planet Fitness locations for a $5 franchise fee

  • Proof of membership, such as the Club Pass or a verifiable member number, must be shown upon entry

Members from a presale location should be treated as any other Planet Fitness member and have access to reciprocal use consistent with the stated policy, even if the home club they joined is not yet open. 

Members of clubs in presale will be expected to comply with all rules of reciprocal use. Presale club members will have a Club Pass and copy of the membership agreement as verification of membership.

PF Black Card® members are welcome to bring one guest with them each time they visit. Guests must be 18 years or older. If a guest is between the ages of 13 to 17, they are welcome to visit if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please note that PF Black Card® guests may not have access to PF Black Card® perks

    1. No member may use a mobile device to take photographs or videos if doing so presents a risk of injury to themselves or others (for example, mobile devices should not be used to take photographs or video by anyone who is simultaneously using exercise equipment);

    2. Out of respect for the privacy and comfort of our members, photographs or video should never include anyone who has not given their prior permission to appear in such images;

    3. Images containing Planet Fitness® intellectual property are subject to all applicable copyright and trademark protections, including, but not limited to, federal and state laws and regulations, and we may prohibit any public-facing use thereof; and

    4. No photographs or video may be used for commercial purposes whatsoever.

  6. The resolution of any conflict or question arising under this policy is at the sole discretion of Planet Fitness® team members.

Because the safety, privacy and comfort of our members is paramount, enforcement of this mobile device use policy is a serious matter.  Any report of a violation of this policy, whether from a Planet Fitness® team member or a club member, should be resolved promptly and professionally, with priority given to the privacy and comfort of all members.

If rescheduled, the Annual Fee payment will fall on the first of the month following your resumed monthly membership payment.

Planet Fitness Global Vendor Code of Conduct

Planet Fitness has developed a Global Vendor Code of Conduct (“Vendor Code”) to clarify our global expectations in the areas of business integrity, labor practices, associate health and safety, and environmental management. Planet Fitness’ Vendor Code is intended to complement the company’s other policies and standards referenced therein. Any vendor, contractor, consultant, agent or third party supplier (collectively “Vendor”) that directly or indirectly provides goods and services to Planet Fitness is expected to follow the Vendor Code.

Discrimination and Harassment

Planet Fitness creates a work environment in which employees and business partners feel valued and respected for their contributions. Harassment, including unwelcome verbal, visual, physical, or other conduct of any kind that creates an intimidating, offensive or hostile work environment will not be tolerated. Planet Fitness is an equal opportunity employer, and it is our policy to base employment decisions on qualifications, skills, performance, and experience, without regard to race, national origin, ancestry, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, disability, or any other basis protected by law.

In no instance shall a vendor permit children to perform work that exposes them to undue physical risks that can harm physical, mental, or emotional development or improperly interfere with their schooling needs.

Planet Fitness and its vendors shall proactively manage health and safety risks to work to mitigate workplace incidents, including occupational injuries and illnesses. Vendors must work to implement management systems and controls that identify hazards and assess and control risk related to their specific industry. Also, vendors shall provide potable drinking water and adequate restrooms; fire exits and essential fire safety equipment; emergency aid kits and access to emergency response including environmental, fire and medical.
