Napcercise: a gym class we'd actually be down for
Some of us love the gym. Others pay for gym memberships for months, years, just so we can have the aesthetic of a Les Mills card on our key rings and can convince other people into THINKING we care about fitness and wellness... and all that health/body shit our Instagram feed is constantly brainwashing us with.
Plus, without the visible gym swipe card people are gonna see right through all that Lulu Lemon you wear to work three times a week…cause it’s comfy and fashun.
Come on. Be honest. Deep down, you know you’re not actually enjoying that quinoa salad you bought for lunch. You know when Sally from Sales asks you what you’re doing this evening and you say “probably hitting the gym” you are full of shit. You know you’re gonna finish work. Get straight home. Get in your bed. Turn on Netflix and open up your snack draw that's filled with cheap K-Mart check out delights like Perky Nanas and Reese’s Pieces.
If this sounds like you, boy do we have some life changing news.
What if we told you, you could do pretty much exactly this AND it legit counts as a workout.
Well, you’d have to save the Netflix and Perky Nanas for when you get home.
But the bed part (the best part) is now being brought into gyms.
On the David Lloyd Clubs Napercise page it says: "The frantic nature of modern life means that few of us seem to get enough sleep, and if you're a parent, a good night's rest becomes even more of a luxury. So, we've created a new group class - group napping classes for exhausted mums and dads to help boost their mental and physical wellbeing.
"Our mid-afternoon studio sleep sessions is 45-minutes long and is designed to reinvigorate the mind, the body and even burn the odd calorie."
Burn calories. While napping. This is the best thing we think we’ve ever heard. Suck a dick cross fit.
Unfortunately David Lloyd Clubs are based exclusively in Europe. But just like bangers and binge drinking, we’re sure the Europeans are simply leading the way, and we’ll soon follow suit.
