Fitworld gym in the town of Heteren will open its doors on a Sunday for naturists to buff up, while in the buff.
Gym owner Patrick de Man said he got the idea after noticing another gym was offering pole dancing lessons. So he decided to go a step further and dispense with clothes all together. "I heard that some other gyms are offering courses on 'pole-dancing' as a sport, so I thought: why not bring something new to the market?" Mr De Man said.
Nude exercisers will be required to put down towels on weight machines and use disposable seat covers while riding bikes.
All machines will be cleaned and disinfected afterwards.

Been there, done that..the clothing optional cruise that I took last year, I would estimate that 50% of the gym users did their exercises in the buff and believe or not women outnumbered the guys in their birthday suits. Just imagine yourself on the treadmill with a nice looking late twenty's female on the next treadmill.. Guess you really had to be there.

Quoting FlyingTexan (Reply 20): Pray tell - where did you learn such? Because I know you were not around "in the beginning of the spread of HIV in the USA" -- at your young age of 16-20.
Please do tell. We're waiting...
Why would I have to be alive back then to know this?
Have you ever heard of science? There's a little place called the Centers for Disease control.. Lots of information to be had there... As well as my local Health Department, where I get my HIV testing done... And Saint Louis University's HIV vaccine trials unit.. They'll all tell you the same thing.
Some of the very first (known) cases of HIV in the US can be traced to former Bathhouses in San Francisco.. And they rapidly spread from there..
