Spanish gym offers memorable workout

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 BBC reports.

The gym's owners say amid the global financial recession they had 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.
