An F45 gym in Hastings has cancelled someone's '7 day experience' and offered her a refund, because she didn't want to be filmed while working out.

The gym-goer received an email saying that because she didn't want to sign the waiver to be filmed for social media, they couldn't guarantee she wouldn't end up in them anyway.

Therefore, they couldn't offer her the gym's services.

Privacy lawyer Kathryn Dalziel told Mike Hosking even taking a photo or video of someone can be classed as gathering their private information.

“When you’re collecting personal information from people, it has to be necessary, and my question is ‘why was that necessary for them providing that service.”
