Naked gym classes now offered in New York City gym.

A article from the New York Daily News website

Get buff in the buff this new year.

Hanson Fitness, which boasts such celebrity clients as Rihanna, Julia Roberts and Tom Cruise, will be holding naked personal fitness classes to kick off 2018.

On Jan. 5 at 6 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 (42 Wooster St, New York, N.Y., 10012), 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 say.

Hanson studio founder Harry Hanson, fitness guru, 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!”

While naked yoga has become an increasingly trendy and popular exercise, few places do full-body workouts in the nude. NKD Training in the UK has naked gym training, but it’s for men only.

Hanson Fitness says that working out nude keeps you cooler, releases endorphins, increases body awareness and gives you unrestricted movement. Plus: less laundry!

If guests are uncomfortable training in the complete nude, nude-colored underwear is permitted. Contact the studio to book a spot, find out about private sessions and inquire about costs.

If naked yoga is more your speed, head to Bold and Naked Yoga Studio in Midtown West, which has naked and clothed yoga classes, private sessions and other training programs.

Nudist idea #48: Have a walk on a beach naked at night

Naked and Happy

As nudists, we all know how comfortable it is to be naked in nature. Unfortunately, not all places are nudist friendly and it’s not always possible to shed all our clothes wherever we want. However, if you are near a textile beach in the summer time, there’s some good chance you can enjoy some nudity at night.

sea-2563382_1280Very few people are going to the beach at night. Some may light a bonfire, some may try skinny dipping if the water is not too cold, but very few will and this provides a great opportunity on a cool night to stroll along the seashore, just wearing your smile enjoying the coolness of the atmosphere.

Of course, some beaches may be too lit to get naked, and you may need to find a more secluded place, but my experiences show that when there’s a will, there’s a way, and a really peaceful…

Nudist idea #47: Go skinny-dipping

Naked and Happy

Skinny dipping is one of the possible entry point into nudism. Generally, you’re with a group of friends on the shore of a lake or at the sea, in a secluded spot, and one decided to go swim naked. By a ripple effect, all get naked and jump into the water

Image result for skinny dippingA lot of people already went skinny dipping. It’s interesting to read in the Wikipedia article about nude swimming that it was a common practice in a lot of public swimming pool until the early 60’s and is coming back (slowly though) with the advance of naturism.

Image result for skinny dippingGenerally skinny dippers tend to wrap themselves into towels once out of water for modesty. However, if one or two stay naked without towel, it’s a great opening to having more people to stay naked and join nudist activities. If you are a seasoned nudist, grab any opportunity to go skinny dipping…

Nudist idea #42: Be a naked model

look online for chances to be a naked model in your area. Some even pay.

Naked and Happy

Being naked is natural. There’s actually nothing more natural than just being who you are without any artificial cover. Posing naked for art students is one of the most natural and normal artistic activities.

The human body is one of the most beautiful creation. There are numerous wonderful nude painting. However, to learn how to paint human bodies, artists need models. A lot of art schools are asking for models to pose naked or clothed. Being a naturist, getting naked should not be big a problem. Staying still for hours will be, but art teachers will provide ample poses so you can relax, and move.

Tinea Versicolor

Well for the past few years i have been concerned with what looked like a weird discoloration around my groin area.

For those of you who have seen some of my pictures from earlier in this blog’s history you probably noticed the discoloration as well.  At first I thought the discoloration was due to my shaving my pubic region.  That is true but only in part.  The main reason for the discoloration is a skin condition called Tinea Versicolor.  The condition is caused when the natural fungus on a human’s skin begins to spread out of control basically.  I have included a Wikipedia link in this post so you can look at it or Google it.

To be honest i was basically being a male idiot and never went to the doctor out of a mixture of shame and just thinking it was nothing serious.  But the stuff has pretty much spread around my entire groin area from back to front.  Thankfully it never itched, but it just looked terrible to me and i was afraid anyone seeing it would be grossed out.

What finally got me to take it seriously was when i noticed it was spreading to my hips this year.  I was kind of scared at that point.  But i did have some hope.  I have a cousin who is a dermatologist, so I asked him about and he gave me his diagnosis and said i would be fine, although he was surprised when i told him it didn’t really itch at all.  He said it usually does.  So he sent me a text later with prescription for a creme that I should get to help deal with it.  The creme is called Ketoconazole and it can take a couple of months for it to clear up the condition.

Well there has been something I have noticed in the past few days.  The path and spread of the infection runs along the area where I have shaved frequently.  Noting this i realized that shaving helped to either spread the infection or helped to start it.  I don’t have any real medical evidence but the way the stuff has spread backs up my theory because i remember how i shave my genital area.  My best guess is I irritated my skin or cause small nicks and cuts and that how the stuff spread as the razor also picks up some skin whenever i shave.  I have also noticed that the areas where i sweat the most are also infected.  Thankfully Tinea Versicolor is not a contractible condition.  In others words you CANNOT spread this condition to anyone else via physical or sexual contact.

I decided to post this story on this blog and the other one, because i have noticed some pictures of naturists with the same discoloration, so i decided to post this and the pictures to help others in the naturist community out.  So yeah spread the word and if you know someone who looks like some of the pictures then you can at least help them as well.

Note:  These pictures feel really embarrassing so please don’t spread the pictures around too much.

Who Cares About Your Genitals

IPRM

Preface

I wrote this essay as part of a first year writing course I took this fall with Dr. Andrew Joseph Pegoda. To put this into context, I am a senior (5th year) undergraduate mathematics major taking this particular English core requirement for the third time. The original assignment was to define a mores or ritual in American culture. In freaking out I decided to write in a style that I was more familiar with. With that in mind, here is the result.

Who Cares About Your Genitals?

In 2003, Stephen Peter Gough began hiking naked through the United Kingdom “earning the nickname ‘the naked rambler’.” His more than thirty subsequent arrests resulted in “almost seven years in prison” (Gough 6 and 160). Given the potential consequences of public nudity, we can see how strongly western culture values the ritual of clothing oneself. Thus, we define socially mandated…

Nudist idea #38: Do your house chores naked

i actually do this all the time.

Naked and Happy

We all need to do some chores at one point. Typically, it’s a time to get wet and dirty, so the ideal clothes for this are no clothes! As simple as this, and so much more comfortable.

Image result for naked house choresWashing the dishes, mopping the floor or dusting your library seem much more fun when done naked. I really never understood why, and I doubt there are any scientific study about this, but it’s a personal fact. House chores seem less painful when done naked. And if you can share them with your spouse, they are even funnier.

Now, let’s think a minute about our nudist lives. If you live nude most of the times indoor and outdoor, doing house chores naked is kind of obvious. However, if you are thinking about nudism, but do not know where to start, this could be one activity you want to discover naked. It’s a great…
