As some readers with whom I maintain personal contact know, I broke my foot in the end of November. So I couldn’t maintain practically any activities, let alone naturist ones. I hope this week I will get rid of the plaster on my foot and will not need crutches anymore! Let’s see what the doctor says.
In some European countries public nudity is accepted in many places, but there is one big natural problem: winter! And the number of indoors naturist facilities is very small, especially if you exclude saunas. But Paris boasts a gym with naturist hours 5 times per week and a swimming pool three times per week (piscine Roger Le Gall), thanks to the association of naturists of Paris. There are pools which serve naturists also in Berlin, Madrid, London, but I’m not aware of any other naked gym, although the word ‘gym’ implies nudity, coming form the greek γυμνός [gymnos] – naked.
So, this is where parisian naturists maintain their shape when it is -10ºC!
Well, actually inside the gym it is warm enough to be completely unclad 🙂
The gym isn’t big but with all major types of machines.
And there is a pleasant surprise – the first visit is free of charge, just fill in an invitation form!
Furthermore, youth under 27 years old has free admission!
Perfect for the young and active 😉
The members seem to be very friendly.
Many thanks to Laurent for the pics!
Check out our post from another visit a year later!
