It’s only been in recent weeks that I’ve found out that two friends go to gyms that have communal showers. One of them loves it and the other isn’t exactly thrilled about it. He’s more shy about how he feels in his body at the moment than the nudity itself. Sadly, of course my gym has individual cubicles. Now I’m not saying that I want to see everyone at my gym nude but there are certainly a few I wouldn’t mind. A couple of them are very shy and wear shorts in to the cubicle, close the doors and then strip off.

As much as I love nudity as we all know, I do understand that not everyone is comfortable with group nudity but I think there might be a lot less body image issues if nudity were more common. Please Fitness First, take out the cubicles!
