What is The Judgement Free GenerationTM?

The Judgement Free Generation is Planet Fitness’ philanthropic initiative designed to combat the judgement and bullying faced by today’s teens by creating a culture of kindness and encouragement.

Bullying has become all-too-common in today’s society, with 1 in 5 teens reporting that they’ve been bullied and parents citing it as their #1 concern. With our Judgement Free Zone® as a solid foundation, Planet Fitness is the perfect company to make a commitment to help tackle this issue.

Our Mission

The Judgement Free Generation aims to empower a generation of teens to grow up contributing to a more judgement free planet— a place where everyone feels accepted and like they belong.

Our Partners


We are proud to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), the nation’s leading youth development organization, supporting millions of kids and teens during the critical out-of-school time, and STOMP Out Bullying, the leading anti-bullying organization in the U.S., to develop premiere educational programs and resources designed for the afterschool setting. These tools will help Boys & Girls Club teens to create a culture where bullying is not accepted and kindness prevails.

To start, together with our franchisees, Planet Fitness is committing $1.3 million in grants and donations to Boys & Girls Clubs of America and STOMP Out Bullying to fund this initiative.

What We’re Doing

Together with our partners, we are:

  • Providing proven anti-bullying curriculum designed by STOMP Out Bullying to educate the Boys & Girls Clubs of America
  • Funding local teen-led projects that promote a judgement free culture at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country
  • Volunteering at Boys & Girls Clubs in our communities
  • And much more!


Join us in combatting the negative with the positive.

Help us put an end to bullying. Together, we can and will create the first-ever Judgement Free Generation.
