PLAISTOW, N.H. (CBS) – A Massachusetts man apparently learned the hard way that the “Judgment Free Zone” philosophy at Planet Fitness only goes so far.
Police say 34-year-old Eric Stagno was walking around naked at the Plaistow gym before settling in on the yoga mats. Officers arrived at the Planet Fitness to find him nude on his knees in a yoga-type position.READ MORE: Boston Hospital Networks Announce COVID Vaccine Requirements For Employees

“The only statement that he made was that he thought it was a ‘judgment free zone’ – apparently referencing the chain’s slogan,” police Capt. Brett Morgan told WBZ-TV.
Gymgoers who saw Stagno’s naked exercises reported feeling “disgusted,” “sick” and “unsafe,” Morgan said.MORE NEWS: NH Man In Custody After Allegedly Pointing Gun At Driver Honking At Him
