Police say a hidden camera was found inside of the women’s locker room at the Planet Fitness in Seekonk, MA. Authorities say the camera was discovered by a member around 2 a.m. on Wednesday.

Members learning of the news on Thursday expressed shock and disgust that something like this would happen at their gym.

"It's pretty violating and disgusting to think that someone would actually do that,” said gym member Lindsay Carreiro.

"You come to a gym thinking that you're in some sort of a safe environment and then you find out that there are people watching you in the changing room which is a complete violation of anyone’s privacy," said gym member Jessica Alves.

A spokesperson from Planet Fitness released this statement to ABC 6 News: "At Planet Fitness, the privacy of our members is extremely important to us. We are aware of the alleged incident that took place at the Planet Fitness in Seekonk, MA. The Franchise owner is working closely with the local authorities to investigate this matter."

“It's kind of shocking and kind of creepy. It makes me question what's going on here," said gym member Denise Frageorgia.

Gym goers describe this as a nice place to workout and say they never would have suspected anything like this to happen.

"It seems like pretty regular people come to this gym. I never feel like I am working out with rude or mean people so I'm shocked that it would be at a place like this," said Carreiro.

Police are not releasing specifics about the incident at this time. The case remains under investigation.
