Have you ever wondered what it was like to work-out in the nude? I haven't either. But brace yourself, because this naked work-out experience might not be just a crazy trend any more. We recently visited Hanson Fitness in New York City where owner, Harry Hanson told us about his one-time class offering has had the phones off the hook ever since.
Hanson Fitness is not necessarily your average gym. With two facilities in both Union Square and Soho in NYC, they are familiar with creating unique work-out experiences -- likely why A-list celebrities such as Rihanna, Sandra Bullock and Tyra Banks have been seen there. Recently, when a few of the Hanson Fitness members approached Harry about starting up a naked fitness class, he was first skeptical, but soon realized this eyebrow-raising request was more popular than he thought. We've heard of naked yoga classes, but when it comes to full-body workouts, this is a first for New York.
The first class launched this month with ten participants -- half of which were female and the other half male -- to make sure everyone was equally comfortable. The class was such a success that they are looking to not only hold another class, but based on the feedback and the amount of people asking to participate in the next, Hanson Fitness plans to increase the class size to 300 people.
Believe it or not, most people want to be naked.
