Man Arrested For Working Out Naked At Planet Fitness—And He Uses The Gym’s Slogan As Justification

Eric Stagno, 34, was arrested over the weekend when he decided to strip completely naked and do some yoga in a crowded New Hampshire Planet Fitness. 

According to reports, he removed his clothes immediately upon entering the gym, paced around a few times, then got down to business on the yoga mats. 

He was arrested without incident and charged with indecent exposure/lewdness and disorderly conduct.

According to police, the man cited the gym’s “judgement-free zone” philosophy as his reason for flexing in the buff.

Here’s the full scoop:

Most of Twitter found this hilarious for one reason or another:

According to police captain Brett Morgan:

When officers arrived, they found him there, completely nude: on his knees in a yoga-type position. He walked into the gym, stripped down at the door, then proceeded to walk back and forth a couple of times before settling in on the yoga mats.

Morgan also stated:

 Some of the comments some witnesses gave were that they felt uncomfortable, disgusted, sick, and unsafe. There were more witnesses coming forward than we could take names.

There was one person who felt that laughing at this man was a bit unsavory. According to the police report, he did in fact have drug paraphernalia in his possession, though it was unclear whether he was under the influence at the time of his arrest.  

This commenter makes a good point:

Stagno was released on bail and is due to be arraigned Sept. 21 in Plaistow District Court, according to The Boston Globe.
