Naked Sundays

If for some insane reason the idea of working out naked appeals to a trip to Amsterdam for March 4th. Personally, the idea of a gym full of naked, hairy, sweaty people on tread mills, elliptical riders and doing squats makes me a bit ill...but the owner of Fitworld gym in the Netherlands says the response to the up-and-coming "Naked Sundays" has been overwhelming.

"...De Man said the first question Fitworld customers were asking was whether it would be sanitary.

Nude exercisers would be required to put towels down on weight machines and to use disposable seat covers while riding bikes. All machines would be cleaned and disinfected afterward. "We clean them every day anyway," he said.

The first "Naked Sunday" is scheduled for March 4..." (source)

What would be the draw of this I wonder? Even the most beautiful of specimens would look better in their Adidas as they crunched and curled... Then again, I don't really get the whole nudist movement -am I missing something?
