Squats in exchange for free public transport – sound like a good thing?
That’s the idea that’s been implemented in Moscow to promote the upcoming 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Passengers who do 30 squats will get a free train ticket.
Train stations in the Russian capital have installed new machines which track your squats and dispense a train ticket once your 30 are done.
And it’s not just those lazy squats most of us try and get away with – the machines make sure you do proper, butt-burning squats. You’ll be sure to feel it on your commute home, that’s for sure.
So a free train ticket and a tight butt without stepping foot into the gym – we think that’s a pretty good deal!
