Use your locker to store clothes, and anything you don't want in the shower with you. It is a choice. My husband's obvious question was, "Why have a 'private' shower stall without doors? I think Germans' reactions to your questions might be perceived as somewhat hostile, because Germans are quite proud of their freedom to shed their shame and inhibitions with their clothes at the gym. As far as clothing in the shower goes, what is the purpose of the shower area in your gym? There will be nudity and a nude body is nothing to be ashamed of or frightened by.

Are there showers at my gym?
Gyms that routinely disinfect the shower areas will be about as safe as your home shower would be. Yes, the showers each have a stall, so there's no mass showering area, but the stalls have no doors or curtains for privacy. I walk into the stall dressed and I exit the stall dressed. I want to feel relaxed and safe if I'm investing so much money on it. Forcing yourself to overcome that shame is therapeutic.
