Does my Planet Fitness Require a Dress Code?

Yes! Members are required to wear workout clothes, socks, and shoes in the gym area. Dressing rooms are available for you to change and shower in. They do advise that your workout gear is the appropriate size. Too loose or too tight of clothing will be restrictive on the individual and loose clothing could become a hazard on some machinery. They also advise that all members remove their jewelry for safety and avoid wearing any cotton since it will absorb and hold sweat and create irritation on the body.

What is the Official Dress Code Policy of the Planet Fitness Company?

The official dress code policy has been made unavailable to us. Multiple emails and phone calls resulted in being informed that the official dress code is only shared with employees of the company. Upon further research, we did discover postings by current and past employees that revealed what the company desired. Staff and shift leads are to wear a company tee shirt, black pants or khakis, and black shoes or sneakers. Management must wear a company tee shirt or polo with black pants and black shoes. It does appear that there have been slight changes to the dress code over the years. We advise that you ask your local gym about what their policy is. In our research, we discovered a few lawsuits regarding clothing worn in their gyms and we assume this is why they are not willing to share employee requirements with us. We are not engaging in any discussion about litigation, we are simply trying to educate you on what they require.

Planet Fitness employees over 18,000 people in just over 1,500 locations. More locations are being opened each month and are expected to grow substantially in the coming years. We anticipate that they will add another dozen locations and a few hundred new employees this year with growth rapidly taking place each year for the next five or so years. These locations are spread out over the U.S., Canada, and Latin America. It should not be confused with Planet Fitness International, who has businesses spread out over Europe. Similar in name but not connected beyond that.

However, as you rise through the ranks of the company, you can find yourself in more formal settings that will require business formal attire. If you are promoted, always ask about the attire requirements to avoid any issues later on.

Planet Fitness Dress Code Ideas for Women

For female staff, they will be provided a staff tee shirt and Planet Fitness jacket. A nice black pant or pair of khakis would fall into the dress code and look very nice. Makeup should be minimal and jewelry kept with studded earrings and maybe a banded ring. Avoid anything that dangles as it could put you in a hazard risk. Hair can be worn up or down but if you will be cleaning around the machinery, we advise taking measures to tie back long hair. Be sure that you are clean and tidy as you represent the company and want to promote positivity and good health. We do advise opting for sneakers or comfortable black shoes that will support you standing on your feet for long hours at a time. Heels of any kind are not appropriate and would cause serious discomfort and possible blisters.  Wearing sneakers is easier should you decide to work out before or after your shift!
