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 youth by creating a culture of kindness and encouragement.

Bullying has become all-too-common in today’s society, with 1 in 4 youth reporting that they’ve been bullied and parents of school-aged children citing it as their #1 concern. With our Judgement Free Zone® and No Gymtimidation® policies as a solid foundation, Planet Fitness is the perfect company to tackle this issue.

Our Mission

The Judgement Free Generation aims to empower a generation 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 BullyingTM, the leading and most influential anti-bullying organization for kids and teends in the U.S., to make a meaningful impact on the lives of today's youth.

Together with our franchisees, Planet Fitness has committed $1.3 million in grants and donations to Boys & Girls Clubs of America and STOMP Out Bullying to fund this initiative. And with our members and staff, we continue to raise funds to support a range of activities and educational programs to reduce bullying.
