Working Out For Two Minutes Can Get You A Free Subway Ticket In Russia

A workout can pay off for the subway tickets in Russia: fitness and economy go hand-in-hand!


Had you been in Russia around the time it hosted Winter Olympics, you'd know about a program they initiated at the Vystavochaya Station.


An Olympic official said that the games are more than an international competition. Hence, that initiative would help kick-off the ambition to mingle sports within the everyday life of the passengers.


The following video will help you realize how enthusiastic people were when offered a free ticket in return of thirty squats – an exercise which may seem tiresome to perform!


What the Russian Olympic Committee decided to do makes a lot of sense. They chose to take a step beyond the international competition and introduce the idea more practically with this system.


Thanks to Olympic Change and Squatting Slavs In Tracksuits for providing these videos!
