Spanish gym offers naked workouts

A gym in Spain has come up with an eye-catching way of battling the recession.

Easy Gym in the Basque region has begun offering naked workouts, for nudists.

The gym's owners say amid the global financial recession they'd noticed a drop off in membership and the move is aimed at simply increasing gym numbers.

A poll of the group's members showed 90% support for a facility offering the full range of nude workouts.

However sceptics suggest that running full tilt in the buff might not be entirely enjoyable, saying sports underwear was invented for a reason.
