This girl was kicked out of a gym because of what she was wearing


There's enough to concern yourself with at the gym without having to worry about what you're wearing.

But Sarah Villafañewas was allegedly kicked out of a gym at the College of Charleston apparently because she was wearing a crop top.

Villafane wrote on Facebook that she was kicked out for wearing a crop top she’d just worn to three classes.

She was asked to change her top, and when she said she didn’t have anything to change into, she went into the gym and began her workout anyway.

According to Villafane, while she was exercising, a member of staff allegedly approached her and told her to put a shirt on so she had “full coverage”. Then, the manager was called over and she was told the same thing.

She wrote on Facebook:

I bought this outfit to work out in because it's COMFORTABLE. What is the issue? Why can't I work out in this outfit? Is my belly button distracting to the general 85% male demographic that your gym serves? I'm forced to leave, WHY? Honestly I'm so floored that I just got kicked out for this.

Villafane was then told the gym said they kicked her out “for sanitary concerns”. She wrote:

However, they never made those sanitary concerns clear when they asked me to change. They told me I need 'more coverage' and nothing more. Not to mention, their website has no written dress code anyway.

The dress code at the front of the gym simply says 'Athletic wear must be worn.' I would say that what I'm wearing (whether you believe it's a sports bra or a crop top) is completely normal and considered athletic wear.

Here's the erm, apparently inappropriate outfit she was wearing:
