Nudists sweat it out at Dutch gym
‘Fitworld owner Patrick de Man allowed the media in for the first session of “Naked Sunday” after receiving inquiries from as far away as Russia and Australia.
The response from nudists was more lukewarm.
A smattering of men trickled in and out throughout the day at the gym in the small town of Heteren, 60 miles east of Amsterdam. They found the exercise room packed with photographers, TV crews and reporters who jostled for interviews and pictures while the nudists hit the machines and free weights.
“We already had naked swimming … but a gym, that’s unique,” said one white-haired bespectacled man, who gave only his first name, Henk.
“It’s spectacular!” he said, as he pedaled away.’
