(CNN) - A British gym chain is introducing a new fitness class called "nappercise," where people take a mid-afternoon nap for 45 minutes.

The company said the class targets exhausted parents and is designed to reinvigorate the mind, the body and even burn the odd calorie.

The class starts off with some stretching and is followed by laying down in a bad with a blanket and eye mask. It ends with some more stretching. To facilitate sleeping, the club turns down the thermostat and plays relaxing music.

The gym said more than a hundred people have already signed up for a free trial class.
