A New York City gym is about to start offering naked workout classes for you to get buff in the buff next year. The Daily News reports that Hanson Fitness, which boasts such celebrity clients as Rihanna, Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista, will be holding naked personal fitness classes to kick off 2018.
On January 5 at 6:00 p.m., the fitness studio will have its first nude personal training session. The studio initially plans to host three sessions a week: one mixed, one for men and one for women.
Located in SoHo, the class will be a “total body workout that uses your body weight as resistance to work the glute, butt, legs and core — making you look and feel good naked,” the company said in a press release. “New year, nude you,” they add.
Hanson studio founder Harry Hanson said in the release, “Our approach makes sure our members get and stay in the absolute best shape, and our new naked personal fitness sessions are no exception. This new development brings with it a range of fitness and health benefits and allows our members to have a little cheeky fun in the process!”
Hanson Fitness says that working out nude keeps you cooler, releases endorphins, increases body awareness and gives you unrestricted movement. The ancient Greeks preferred nude workouts, so you could say Hanson also understands that sometimes the old ways are the best ways. As the Daily News reported, nude exercise and naked workout classes may be taking off in general, perhaps inspired by the relative popularity of naked yoga.
If guests are uncomfortable working out in the completely naked, nude-colored underwear is permitted. Contact the studio to book a spot, find out about private sessions and inquire about costs.
