This Planet Fitness Member Was Arrested for Doing 'Naked Yoga'

By

There's been a lot said and done about the Planet Fitness franchises' "lunk alarms."

Hardcore gym-rats despise the franchise for encouraging members to report overly-enthusiastic workout behaviors from fellow exercisers.

Now while I agree that shaming someone for grunting while pulling up heavy weights (because exercising is tough and the only way you'll really get in shape is if you push yourself) is ridiculous, I think ringing an alarm for naked-yoga enthusiast Eric Stagno is definitely in order.

The 34-year-old Massachussetts man had to explain himself to police after he reportedly walked around the Plaistow Planet Fitness, where he was a member, completely nude.

Officers who reported to the scene found Stagno lying face down in a yoga position wearing nothing but his birthday suit. When they asked him to get up and escorted him off the premises, Stango complied without incident or protestation. He only said one thing according to police Captain Brett Morgan.

"The only statement that he made was that he thought it was a ‘judgment free zone’ – apparently referencing the chain’s slogan," Morgan said in statement to WBZ-TV.

Gym members who saw the man strutting his stuff at the Planet Fitness location said they felt "sick" and "unsafe," according to Morgan.

As weird as Stagno's story is, strange people doing strange things at the gym is nothing new.
