Arrest made after man strips naked in women's locker room at Planet Fitness, claims to be transgender

“I think a woman should be able to go into a woman’s bathroom without a man coming in saying he’s transgender."


A man who claimed to identify as a woman to use the female locker room at Planet Fitness was arrested after fellow members called the police.

In a recent incident at a Planet Fitness gym in Gastonia, North Carolina, Christopher Allan Miller, aged 38, was arrested after he stripped naked in the women's locker room.

Members of the gym who believed Miller was abusing the policy which states transgender members can use the locker room of their "gender identity" promptly called the police for assistance. According to reports from WSOC Channel 9, a local news outlet, Miller was allegedly harassing women in the gym before his arrest. A female caller described the situation to the dispatcher, stating, “It’s a man but he says he identifies as a woman, and he won’t leave the restroom. But he is just walking around showing us his --- and he won’t leave.” 

Police eventually arrived at the gym and promptly arrested Miller. 

One female gym member expressed how seeing Miller in the women’s locker room made her uncomfortable.

“I think a woman should be able to go into a woman’s bathroom without a man coming in saying he’s transgender,” the member said, per Channel 9.

Planet Fitness has faced criticism in the past for its policy, which allows members to use facilities according to their gender identity. 

“All members, including transgender members, may use Planet Fitness® locker room facilities, bathrooms, showers, and all other facilities/programs separated by sex based on their self-reported gender identity,” Planet Fitness’ locker room policy reads.

Controversy escalated in recent days when it was revealed that the gym had revoked the membership of a woman who attempted to expose a man in the women’s locker room by taking a photo.

Following this decision, the company lost $400 million in value after criticism from platforms like Libs of TikTok, which highlighted the policy allowing individuals to use facilities based on gender identity. Many conservatives have since been calling for Planet Fitness to receive the “Bud Light treatment” for its inappropriate policy regarding locker rooms.
