    Captain Cook Hotel, Anchorage

    Just read the following from http://groups.yahoo.com/group/YMCANaked2 :"I have been to the Athletic Club (men's side) at the Captain Cook Hotel in downtown Anchorage. The facility provides nudity and male bonding at its finest. I have never seen any member make any attempt to...

    There's a young guy in the gym around almost

    20's, quite shy, but I know he'd like to take off his shirt during his workout. I can see it in his body language. Even though he is wearing a wife beater, he lifts his shirt from time to time to get cooled. As much as I want to encourage him to take off his shirt, I think he is...

    Forget Shirtless

    I want a gym that will let both men and women work out naked, maybe even have some rooms for hook ups. LOL

    Left The Gym Shirtless

    Last night I finished my workout about thirty minutes before it closed after having worn a t shirt that I cut out with the sides almost completely gone so my chest was almost 100 per cent visible when looking at the side. After a shower I decided to leave shirtless and barefoot...

    Workout Shirtless

    I love for being shirtless at the gym. It's really fun and make me feel comfort.

    Reasonable Requirements

    I'd have no problem requiring towels to keep skin off of upholstery, or to wipe it down after use.  And I'd enforce the same rules for women as well as men with exposed backs, abs, thighs, etc.  In fairness, any top or bottom that was beach legal in the area would be gym...

    Leaving The Gym Shirtless

    Like other have said, it would be great if shirtlessness is allowed at my gym. However, if shirtlessness is allowed in more gyms, we wouldn't need this group! I usually leave my gym shirtless in the summer. At the chain I go to I have left 5 locations shirtless. I have no...

    Shirtless At The Gym

    I go to a gym that has an inconsistent shirtless policy. There is one attendant that insists shirts be worn and will remind you if you go without. He tends to work the same days and hours, so I go when he's not there. I go in shirtless, workout shirtless and leave shirtless...

    Rules Change Near Closing Time

    In the last half hour before closing time at my gym the dress code is forgotten and shirtless is fine. Somehow it helps people work harder (not showing off - just somehow an easier and more natural workout). Okay, it's breaking the rules, but when one of us takes the lead, others...

    Like Being Shirtless

    Love to take my shirt off, have a decent bod and like working out around other shirtless guys, but can only do it at the beach. Golds in my area doesn't let you and it sucks, would def be a member of such a gym, if it existed.

    I finally found one. I just tried it one day,

    I know kind of ballsy, and the manager was like you know you're the first one to ever do that here. I said I just felt more comfortable this way. And it was encouraged. Check out Equinox if you have one in your area. They are expensive but its a great environment.

    Shirtless Required Gym

    I started doing gym days ago at the gym near my house. And I was surprised to see that everyone was shirtless. So, I shed my shirt immediately and worked out shirtless like everyone does. It's not "required" like that, but if everyone is shirtless, you are something like...

    Months ago, I used to be quite hefty

    and was really shy to take my shirt off even in front of my close male friends. By that time then, I am working out in a hardcore hole-in-the-wall gym where you can wear anything you want. Most of the guys there are security guards or porters at the nearby market, so they just...

    I just joined Planet Fitness.

    Well-equipped and not too crowded and cheaper than 24-Hour, but they forbid string tanks! That's been my standard attire for years. One step further from shirtless. At least I can do my stretching routine barefoot.

    I Prefer Shirtless Gyms

    I actually had a membership at a small, local gym that allowed guys to workout shirtless and that was one of the main reasons I chose that gym. I also worked out at a college gym that didn't "officially" allow shirtlessness, but unofficially it was cool as long as...

    It won't be long before shirts are required at

    swimming pools if people keep complaining about germs and being offended. Germs are EVERYWHERE. And if you don't like it, then DON'T LOOK. I am done with trying to make people happy who are never happy. -_-
