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.
