Are you looking for a workout that doesn't involve sweating, lifting or—hell— even moving? Then 'napercise' is for you. As the name suggests, this exercise class is pretty much adult nap time.

Ugh, I'm SUCH a gym rat.

Napercise classes are currently offered at David Lloyd Gyms in the U.K., and involve 15 minutes of stretching and 45 minutes of napping. Each enrollee in the class is provided a bed, comforter and eye mask to ensure restful, uninterrupted sleep. That is, unless someone in the class snores.

Here is how the David Lloyd website describes the class:

Napercise is scientifically designed to reinvigorate the mind, improve moods and even burn the odd calorie.

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.

The development of Napercise is inspired by past academic studies into the important health benefits that napping in the day can bring.

Alright, I know what you're thinking: "napercise" is just one big scam. After all, you can do this exercise at home, for free, and not have to sleep in some random bed in a room with a bunch of strangers. However, the class is ideal for new parents who are exhausted, especially ones with kids who would never allow them to indulge in an uninterrupted nap.

If nothing else, at least we all have an actual excuse to go to the gym now. Sweet dreams!
