LA Fitness Responds to Dani Mathers Photo
Her behavior is appalling & puts members @ risk. We ended membership & she can't use any club. It’s not just our rule, it's common decency.

Dani Mathers Apology
In a video released on YouTube, Dani Mathers says the body shaming incident which involves a nude photo taken in a gymnasium locker room at L.A. Fitness is “not the type of person that I am.” Watch below.
Says Mathers in the video above, “I just want to acknowledge a photo I accidentally posted on Snapchat here today and let you guys know that that was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do. I have chosen to do what I do for a living because I love the female body and I know that body shaming is wrong and that’s not what I’m about, that’s not the type of person that I am. That photo is taken to be part of a personal conversation with a girlfriend and because I am new to Snapchat I really didn’t realize that I posted it and that was a huge mistake. I know that I have upset a lot of people out there, but please please believe me when I say this is not the type of person I am. I have never done this before. I will never do this again. You have my word.”
