With its Judgement Free Zone® and No Gymtimidation® policies serving as a foundation, Planet Fitness is tackling this issue, including committing of $1.3 million in grants and donations to fund bullying prevention programs and activities that include:
- A first-of-its-kind digital anti-bullying toolkit
