PLANO (CBS 11 NEWS) – A Dallas woman has filed suit against LA Fitness for comments and exercises her trainers made her do. She says they were sexually suggestive.
You would think the suit filed would be for sexual harassment. But no, Chase Laws, the attorney who filed it, said that would be for the workplace.
Instead, he filed a suit for Deceptive Trade Practices and Negligence. He reasons, as a consumer, the woman signed a contract. She lived up to her end of the bargain. LA Fitness didn’t live up to theirs by providing a safe workout environment.
Jaimie Johnson went to LA Fitness in Plano to get fit. But she says two personal trainers talked to her in ways that are unfit for anyone.
She says, she questioned one trainer when he asked her to do “strange exercises.”
“He would answer bluntly, ‘So, I can see your chest move while you do it. And, not in an exercising kind of way. More in a sexual way,” Johnson said.
But she said nothing. She just stopped going only to return for a new trainer.
But the new trainer also made sexually suggestive comments, even sending her a vulgar text. Her five-year-old son had the phone when it came in.
