Gym classes are, without a doubt, some of the biggest fitness trends today. They tend to be more entertaining since you’ll be exercising as a part of the group and the expert-led sessions come as a perk as you don’t have to pay big bucks to hire your own trainer. The best thing about it is there are tons of classes to choose from. Yoga, spinning, rowing, pilates, crossfit, calisthenics, and piloxing are just a few options that will really help you burn those calories and strengthen your muscles.
But what if you don’t really want to sweat it all out and you still want to lose weight through a gym class? Well, the folks at UK’s David Lloyd gyms got an answer for you: napping classes.
Yep, you’ve read it right: a gym is offering a fitness class on napping. Known as the ‘Napercise’ classes, these classes will give you access to a single bed and 45 minutes of undisturbed napping.
Inspired by studies has shown sleep’s ability to burn some calories on top of its other benefits, the club’s Napercise classes are designed to offer the most conducive space for naps. The room temperature will be dropped and the participants will be guaranteed uninterrupted zzz’s. Too bad they don’t have a branch here, no?
With sleep becoming a popular health trend as of late, we aren’t exactly surprised that someone has came up with this idea. Besides, not everyone has an access to a cozy bed in the afternoon, right? However, there’s always the issue of not being able to sleep anywhere else other than your own bed and a host of other reasons that might just prevent you from getting a good nap. We also find the time constraint quite problematic as it can put a pressure on you to fall asleep right away which isn’t always something a lot of people can do.
Since such a program isn’t available in our sunny tropical country, why not just work on your night time sleep even better? Maybe a new Salem Bed might just help you make do with your night-time zzz’s instead of relying on naps to help you power through the day?
