Gym Staff Asks College Student To Leave Because Of What She Wore

A college sophomore who frequents the gym on campus picked up some athletic workout gear. During her last workout, the gym staff asked her to leave because she refused to wear a shirt over her workout attire.

Sarah Villafañe, a 19-year-old student at the College of Charleston, says she hit the gym in a black crop top and leggings. The crop top was sleeveless and showed a bit of mid-drift, but for a sweaty workout, it seemed appropriate. It wasn't overly revealing, and Villafañe had no problem attending classes in her workout clothes all day with a flannel shirt over it.

At the gym, Villafañe ditched the flannel. When she was working out, gym employees kept coming up to her saying, "Put your shirt back on."

"I have a shirt on," she repeatedly told the gym staff. The manager finally came over and told her, "I need you to put on a shirt, or I'm gonna have to ask you to leave."

The student was kicked out of the gym. She took a photo of her outfit and posted it on Facebook to vent about the incident. "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," she wrote.

She noted that the gym's dress code is not detailed and merely specifies that athletic attire is worn. She argues that her clothing fit the code.

Later, Villafañe updated her Facebook page saying the campus gym reached out to her and told her they kicked her out for 'sanitary reasons.'

"However, they never made those sanitary concerns clear when they asked me to change. They told me I need "more coverage" and nothing more," she argues.

Women are getting more and more furious about being told what to wear. Some companies have gone to ridiculous extremes, such as airlines refusing to let children board a plane with leggings, or high school students being denied entrance to their proms because their dress flashes some shoulder.
