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.

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.
Think he looked better from the waist down. Both ends need haircut

I'll place some judgment here… he doesn't look like the type to enter a fitness center.

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.
Man is accused of walking into Planet Fitness, dropping his clothes and working out nude. He told investigators he “thought he was in a judgement-free zone.”
Here's to hoping he wiped down the equipment afterward.https://t.co/tRS9LOqNkl

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:
These types or headlines just kind of depress me tbh. Obvious mental illness or drug abuse as humor. “A crazy person does something crazy, hilarity ensues” 🙁

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