I have a challenge for any fathletes out there who want to accept. If you work out somewhere that has a locker room, walk around calmly and proudly…and naked.
I noticed in my gym locker room that many of our fathletes become Cirque du Soleil contortionists to get into and out of workout close without exposing more than 4 square inches of their bodies at a time. No doubt there are thin girls who do this to, but I see a preponderance of big women doing this. (I don’t know if it’s the same in the men’s locker room so some male fathlete will need to enlighten me!)
I noticed this some time ago and I started to do this, just calmly walk around – not be creepy, not freak out, just walk around like I normally would. ..and it’s been AWESOME!!!!!
What do you think? If you do it I totally want to hear about how it goes!

The last few times I’ve gone to the gym, I’ve been changing in one of the privacy booths. I haven’t been exercising and this has been making me more self conscious about my body than I normally would be.
Normally, though, I change in the main part of the locker room because it’s just too much effort to haul everything in and out of a booth.
Yeah… people should maybe realize that this whole nudity thing JUST isn’t that big a deal. I know that when I realized it, it did a number on the negative bits of my body image. Super glad about it.
I regularly take a water aerobics class at the college and strip down and change like everyone else. I’m fresh out of high school, but locker room trauma has not prevented me from being proud of myself and my body.
