Several years ago, there was a slew of funny t-shirts that were all about co-ed naked sports. Co-ed naked golf (never up, never in), co-ed naked billiards (get felt on the table), or who could forget the co-ed naked tennis (it's in, it's out, it's over). Unfortunately, these witty t-shirts are not making a comeback....yet. However, according to a video released on the Internet recently, former ultimate fighter champion Chuck Liddell and his girlfriend Heidi Northcott are making co-ed naked fitness into an up and coming trend (no pun intended).
The video was originally thought to be released by a peeping tom or stalker, until TMZ released the real reason for the grainy video. According to TMZ the video is an attempt by Reebok to market Liddell's sponsorship for Reebok Sneakers. If you can take your eyes off the nakedness in the video, you will notice that both Chuck and Heidi are wearing Reebok sneakers. Sometimes you need to make sure and protect the most important part of the body, the feet of course.
While this video turned out to be a simple advertising ploy, naked fitness does actually exist in Cleveland. Classes are offered throughout Cleveland where people can be free to let it all hang out. At "No Place Like Om" yoga studio, they offer a Buck naked yoga class, taught by Buck. The studio is located at 5409 Detroit Avenue in Cleveland and classes are just $10. If you are adventurous and would like to attend this class, you can visit Buck's blog site at Buck's Yoga or simply give him call at (216) 409-4161. It may be good to get there early, as you probably don't want to end up behind someone else...or maybe you do. "No Place Like Om" also offers an all male Bear Naked Fitness class at this studio. You can get in contact with the yoga studio by visiting their website, which also lists a class schedule; No Place Like Om. If you only go to exercise classes to pick up women, Bear Naked Fitness may not be the one for you.
If you would like to let out your inner sexiness with some strip, lap or pole dancing classes, then check out Striptease Cleveland. Women can enjoy all the things your parents tried to keep you away from by visiting their website, Striptease Cleveland. The classes are located in Mayfield Heights and consist of anything from 6 week classes or just one-time walk-in classes. However, for all you nudists out there, you will not get completely disrobed in these classes.
Cleveland does offer some alternative exercise classes, and not just to pimp products like Mr. Liddell. It seems there is a definite following and could put a little excitement into your life. If you are feeling a little frisky, visit some of the above websites, and I'm sure they can lead you in the right direction. If you are going to use weights, though, please make sure to keep everything tucked away. Unlike Chuck Liddell and his girlfriend, my feet aren't the only body part I would want to protect.
