This conversation is sponsored by Planet Fitness: How many of you have been there? At the gym, you just feel awkward but are there to workout. You are there to make yourself healthier and maybe one day fit back into your favorite jeans. But there are just so many times when you don”t go because of that overwhelming feeling that you are being judged because maybe you have a few pounds to lose or don’t have muscles that pop out. I have been there and just hate that feeling. See I have never been all that confident, but I love the feeling I get when I release some sweat. Little by little I see the improvements in the way I feel and the way my clothes fit. Why can’t we just find that Judgement Free Zone® and all get healthy!
Whether it’s at school or on the playground or at work, Planet Fitness is hoping to empower people to be more aware of the various forms of judgement around them. The Judgement Free Generation® initiative at Planet Fitness hopes to educate and give back to local communities, committing $1.3 million in grants and donations to Boys & Girls Clubs of America and STOMP Out Bullying to fund this initiative.
I love that Planet Fitness is a Judgement Free Zone®. As I look at my kids in sports, I hope that I instill in them that everyone belongs. They should be inclusive and willing to play and have fun with everyone. When a company makes it their mission to do the same and make everyone feel like they belong, they are taking steps in the right direction. Take a virtual tour of Planet Fitness to see just what they have to offer each and every one of you. And don’t worry about them being pushy like those other gyms.
