Hello everyone! Today I very excited to share with you my experience with Planet Fitness in Traverse City, MI. I recently shared with the manager there that I was in the process of transitioning. To my surprise, she was beyond helpful and willing to accomodate me in any way possible. This made me feel 100% respected and her dedication was above and beyond anything I could imagine. Not only can I use the men’s facilities after speaking with her, she also changed my gender to male and my name to Charlie in their records.
I feel so comfortable in there now and finally like my real self. My first time in the men’s bathroom was a huge moment for me. I felt like I was in the right place. I was not judged one bit. I didn’t receive any looks or comments and I wasn’t chased out of the bathroom…yes this has happened a lot throughout my life when using the women’s bathroom. How amazing. I don’t even have the words to express how happy I am.
I have also started personal training there and am working on building my chest heavily and on that nice T shaped body that I long for. Bria, my trainer is an amazing, positive and non judgemental individual. I feel completely comfortable telling her my goals and she has created a great plan for me to follow to achieve them. I am very excited to continue to see changes in myself and Planet Fitness has really helped to make that happen.
Cheers until next time!
