Will Squat for FREE Subway Tickets

This is actually pretty clever.  I saw the story following @RobForbesDJ.  Here is the link:  Digitaltrends.com

Squat ticket machine

In an effort to promote better health in everyday life (as well as promote the fact that the Winter Olympics will be held in Sochi, Russia next year) the Russian Olympic Committee installed a ticket machine in Vystavochaya station in Moscow that will give passengers a free metro ride if they can do 30 squats in 2 minutes.

They want to remind passengers that it is possible to add fitness into their daily lives.  With as many squats as my trainer makes me do at booty camp, I could travel free in Moscow for a year!

What do you think?  Would you try to do 30 squats in 2 minutes for a free ticket?

  1. Oh my goodness… this is awesome. They should have this in every city, and I’ll never have to pay for public transport again. Note to self; avoid pencil skirts…
