A struggling gym in northern Spain hopes to entice new customers by offering nudist workout sessions, making it the first in the country to target naturists looking to get into shape.
Liberal-minded customers in the northern town of Arrigorriaga are invited to burn calories in the buff at Easy Gym, which provides towels for comfort and to "prevent slippage on the equipment."
"Times are hard. There is a crisis. I need the money. I am not a nudist myself, but I don't mind it at all."
Critics claimed the nude gym sessions might be unhygienic and uncomfortable.
However, Maite Vicuna, the president of ENE, said "If a woman doesn't feel comfortable, she can put on a bra."
