Naked Sunday?

A Dutch gym has unveiled plans for "Naked Sunday", allowing members to work out in the nude. This sounds like an incredibly bad idea. In addition to not wanting to see all that jiggling flesh, I can't see anyone wanting to be the second person to sit on any of the exercise machines. (Yes, I read the article and they say they'll use towels and seat liners, but still...).

This was not the only odd story about working out from the last week. It appears that pole dancing for fitness is catching on in China. Claims one adherent: "It's not hard like ballet." Another says her "love of the pole" has nothing to do with sex. "It's dancing". Sure it is.

I'm thinking it wouldn't exactly be filled with actors and supermodels...

You're on to a mini-trend. There was something on NPR's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" yesterday about a bowling alley in the Northeast that rented itself out to a nudist group. On a complaint, it got busted. Said the Owner, "They are a clean bunch of people. I wish all of my customers were that clean." (paraphrase.)

Some people must get really bored.

I hope the owner at least made them wear socks.

One more reason not to go to the gym. My former teachers work out there.

Naked workouts? Pole dancing? Blech, not for me. For men who aren't getting any, pervs, and exhibitionists maybe, but not me.

I was a member of a gym here that had co-ed on friday and saturday and everyone shared one locker room. I was a little discouraged when I was trying to get changed in front of a little wrinkled old man.

Naked Sunday? No wonder you didn't watch the Super Bowl...

why sunday, why not wednesday, or would the current work week nickname for wednesdays add confusion to it also being a naked wednesday

I saw a picture of the Chinese pole dancing exercise class. I don't know if it's exercise if you're wearing go-go boots.

Some people go to church on Sundays, others go to the gym to work out naked. YUK.
