Getting Buff (in the buff)

As hard as I try, I can't seem to stick to a disciplined gym routine. If I'm going to workout, I have to approach it the way I approach my sex life — by keeping it new, and interesting, and preferably at a high level of difficulty — I do love a challenge, after all. So, I take dance classes and high-impact aerobics, and attempt to play racquetball. I'll do anything, so long as I don't have to hit the gym more than once or twice a week for strength training. 
However, if my gym were to follow in the footsteps of Fitworld in the Netherlands, I might change my tune. I learned, via the About Last Night blog, that Fitworld will soon launch "Naked Sunday," when fitness buffs can work out, well, in the buff. Believe me, if I could go to the gym and watch peoples' naughty bits bounce up and down as they jogged on the treadmill — I'd be there with bells on (or, no bells). 
Owner of Fitworld Patrick de Man (yes, his last name is "The Man") came up with this bit of marketing genius with the help of two gym-goers who are also nudists. He says the response to Naked Sundays has been overwhelming, and that current members of the club are mostly concerned about sanitation. Thank goodness for disposable bicycle seat covers. . .
The first Naked Sunday is scheduled for March 4 — still time to buy a plane ticket. Do you think it would be rude to go there and just watch? I'll bring the Milk Duds, you bring the popcorn.
