Probably one of the most common New Year’s Eve resolutions is to hit the gym more often or to do whatever it takes to get in shape. Well, one would normally associate going to the gym with actually working out, and not standing around and wondering how the fitness equipment works. Now, for those of you who want to hit the gym, but are turned off by the fact of breaking a sweat, we want to talk a bit about a recently opened gym from Scotland who lets you sleep in peace instead of exercising.
Come and Sleep in a Scotland Gym
Yes, you read that right. A Scotland Gym, which goes by the name of David Lloyd Clubs, has recently launched one of the most outlandish training programs in the world. Trading regular gym equipment for comfortable beds, mattresses, and couches, the Scotland gym invites everyone interested in getting a good night’s sleep to cross their threshold.
Clients will be greeted with chill ambient music, comfortable beds, and, of course, with the chance of getting some sleep. However, even though this Scotland gym is more about sleep than working out, there is a small catch – the ambient temperature will be slightly elevated during nap time to promote optimal calorie burn.
So, you’re probably thinking just about now, why on Earth would a gym allow its clients to sleep instead of breaking a sweat? Well, the reason behind their decision is far easier to comprehend that you would believe – because adults don’t get enough sleep at night.
Lack Of Sleep Accounts for Several Health Issues
According to David Lloyd Clubs spokesperson, sleep deprivation is quite common in adults and, as far as the United States of America is concerned, the issue accounts for over 100,000 traffic accidents which result in 1,500 death and 76,000 injuries each year.
Moreover, several sleep-focused studies have proved that young parents get the least amount of sleep per night compared to the rest of the population (approximately five hours). Sleep deprivation can also decrease office productivity and lead to all manner of health issues such as diabetes, heart issues, and obesity.
And so, with so many adults not being able to rest properly, the gym’s representatives have decided to turn the facility is a cozy, charming, and safe environment, where customers can forget all about their problems and drift away into the land of dreams.
During an interview, a Scotland gym spokesperson declared that the concept is being tested in one location, but more of these establishments may pop up should there be a positive customer feedback.
