Gymnasium was the place where in ancient Greece, men used to work out, study and have philosophical discussions. They entered the gymnasium naked. The origin of the word gymnasium is from the word “gymnos”, meaning naked in greek. Athletes were also performing naked at the Olympic games. There are many stories trying to explain why athletes were naked. The most popular is about an athlete, who lost his clothes while he was running at the Olympic games of 720 BC. He won the race and everyone believed that there are better winning possibilities if they were naked.
Nowadays, more and more people are becoming fans of training naked. There are some gyms that encourage their customers to work out naked or at least shirtless. It is all about being free from the restrictions of clothes while we train and enables us to be more in tune with our bodies.
