I called to see if I could join with my daughter who is under the age of 10 but was recomended by her doctor to do some cardio activities.All I wanted was for she and I to go walk and do the stepper.

I was told they WILL NOT ALLOW ANYONE under the age of 13 to join! Now how is it that you want to cure childhood obesity but have an age limit even with an adult not leaving their side?! its a load of bs and this company will never be getting any money from me. I even asked if I could bring in a doctors note stating that she needed to workout and would never be without an adult.

Was rudely cute off and told it was a corporate policy. I'm beyond livid.

So you're telling me you want to not have overweith children but only ones that are teens?Good talk Planet Fitness.

Why don't you just buy your own "stepper" since that's (supposedly) all you want to do anyway .. you two can "step" all-day long in the privacy of your own home and not have to worry about any gym rules.

I would recommend maybe bringing her to a ymca, they have zones where kids can use ellipticals and treadmills, as well as a pool, track, and full workout equipment

Have your kid run outside
All of these negative comments are shamful on both sides. That is the gyms policy, and they were set into place for a reason. Get over it come back when they are 13. Find an alternative gym or workout method in the meantime. As for everyones comments on bad parenting and fat kids...you have absolutely no idea what their lifestyle and home life is like. What good does it do you to be mean? It is sad that these are the kind of people out there, no wonder we have so many kids with bully issues, thats all most of you are.
Did you find somewhere and if so do you have a recommendation by the way I am 10 yrs old
There are reasons under age is not allowed.The risk of injury is serious my son was 19.He had his finger cut off because of weights do to a irresponsible friend. $14.000.00 dollars later due to medical costs that my son is paying out on his own .He was in between insurance co no fault of his .My point they saved his finger and two hospitals.Heed my warning their is a reason for everything trust me!!!!! Outdoors are awesome their are other options .I'm from Texas.
You don't need the gym to work out for your daughter like post before there are other options.Ride a bike,walking,and so on.....
