This Hot, New Wellness Craze Has Another Name: Napping

This "napercize" thing sure beats boot camp.

The Top 6 Reasons Why Naps Rule

Napercising has hit the UK hard, and according to Popsugar it will be coming to the USA next. You'll want to be on the lookout, as this might be the easiest workout we've seen to date. It's literally a 45-minute, hardcore nap, with some light stretching on the side. The napercise class is offered at David Lloyd Clubs, which has studios all over the UK. We've been told our whole lives how important sleep is and in this day and age, it seems no one is getting enough. Sleep has a very powerful effect on our body, and science even says we heal better while we are asleep. According to the clubs' website, the nap is "designed to reinvigorate the mind, the body, and even burn the odd calorie."

While it may seem like a luxury to get a power nap in during your day, this studio wants to impress upon you that it is not luxurious but a very important part of your healthy lifestyle. This class is perfect for busy moms and dads, according to the information on the site.

So why go to a studio instead of napping at home? Let's be real, you wouldn't nap at home! We turn on our DVR's or grab a snack out of boredom. Maybe we see a load of laundry that needs to be done. At the studio, there are no distractions. The beds are set up with comfortable blankets and sleep masks, and the room is at the ideal temperature for sleep. 

Want a nap right now? You'll have to do it at home because David Lloyd's classes are fully bookedIf you're in NYC, San Fransisco, or L.A, you can try out a similar class called AntiGravity Cocooning which is as close to a napercise class as you can get with 45 minutes of yoga on a hammock, followed by a 15-minute nap.
