Gym Offers 45-Minute Intensive Sleep Routine

By Gary Cutlack on at

Targeting stressed parents who don't have enough time to sleep at night what with working three casual jobs and having numerous social media feeds to maintain, gym group David Lloyd has had an idea. A 45-minute trip to the gym where you lie down and have a nap under the pretence of it being a valuable wellbeing class.

And yes, it's obviously called Napercise. David Lloyd says of the scheme: "Upon arrival in the studio guests will find the spin-bikes swapped for single beds, and upbeat workout tunes ditched in favour of atmospheric sounds, to create the perfect environment for the soporific sessions to take place. The studio temperature will also be dropped to a level that promotes calorie burning during sleep."

The group says it did a survey and found that nearly a quarter of parents are surviving on less than five hours of sleep a night, hence they might like going somewhere to escape from children, Lego, cheese, crying and all that, plus there's a free shower afterwards.
