Most of us who go to the gym on a daily basis don’t wear anything spectacular or fancy – we usually wear workout pants and a T-shirt. Of course, there are a lot of women who wear the fancy athletic gear like tank tops, and so do the men, and that’s OK too. Also, it’s generally the rule in every gym in the world that if your skin touches some of the machines or the benches, you are supposed to clean them off to keep things sanitary.
We bring this up because of Sarah Villafane, a student who was working out in the student gym at the College of Charleston when a gym employee told her that she needs to change her shirt. According to her Facebook post, she said that she doesn’t have another shirt, and she resumed her workout. The next thing was even more embarrassing: the manager of the gym came over and told her that she must leave the gym if she doesn’t have another shirt.
Gym clothes are supposed to be comfortable
You probably wear your worst, oldest clothes to the gym. Either that or some workout gear that was meant for exercise. Of course, you don’t wear a black tie affair.
So, it’s probably hard to imagine getting kicked out of a gym because of your outfit.
But what could cause a manager to tell a gym-goer they have to leave? She must have been wearing something really offensive or dirty, right?
This is what she was wearing:
She took it to Facebook to explain the situation
It got quite the attention on Facebook, but some people were supporting her, while others were supporting the gym.
What’s your opinion on the matter? Was Sarah right?
