In the normal scheme of things, sleep usually comes before or after working out.

But David Lloyd fitness clubs in the U.K. is introducing a new fitness class: a 45-minute mid-afternoon nap as a form of exercise.

The ambience is spa-like. Instead of upbeat music to match an endorphin high, guests listen to atmospheric sounds for a peaceful nap. There is no exercise equipment in this sleep studio either. Each attendee gets his own single bed.

The “napercise” is made for tired, busy parents who want to make up for lost sleep and improve their long-term wellbeing in the process.

According to a David Lloyd spokesperson, lack of sleep is not a small matter. Those who don’t get enough sleep at night may forget to pick up their kids from school and even fall asleep at the wheel.



So why not just check into a hotel for some afternoon rest? Well, the fitness club is kept at a  precise temperature that makes the body burn calories, which accounts for the exercise component of the program. This has yet to be confirmed by those who signed up for last weekend's session.

Although some have expressed their doubts about the program via social media, upcoming classes in Sidcup, Kent are already fully booked.
