We usually flock to the gyms just before summer hits to get into shape and strut our stuff on the beach. But what do we do now that summer has ended? There has to be some kind of an incentive, apart from the most obvious one of keeping in shape and staying healthy, which rarely tends to convince us to get off our hinds and workout. Well, there might just be the remedy for all the slackers.
A New York gym class has a novel idea: Work out in the nude.
Hanson Fitness, a gym chain used by celebrities ranging from Rihanna to Sandra Bullock, has been offering naked full body conditioning classes since the start of 2018. The gym will have three weekly nude exercise classes, one for each of the sexes, and one mixed class. For those who want a more intimate nude exercise experience, there are private sessions available.
“These naked personal training sessions are all about creating a ‘new (‘nu-de’) you’, as guests burn the calories whilst nude,” according to the gym’s Facebook event page.
So, what exactly are the benefits of working out butt-naked? According to the gym, working out without clothes allows the skin to breathe, and “complete body awareness so you can see if you’re cheating on your exercise routines.”
“The class is designed to be a total body workout that uses your body weight as resistant to work the glutes, butt, legs and core – making you look and feel good naked,” the gym said on its Facebook page.
According to the gym’s disclaimer, “nude underwear” can be worn during the workout sessions.
