If you live in Moscow, Russia, then you may be able to stand up to a challenge. As the start of the Winter Olympic Games is approaching, the city of Moscow decided to “move up” its citizens. How? By allowing them to pay their subway tickets in squats.
In case you are interested, here is what you need to do.
1. Find a ticket machine with special squat sensor.
2. Complete at least 30 squats in less than 2 minutes and get your free ticket.
Have a look at the response to this inspirational idea by the citizens of Moscow. Great initiative and cause. It’s genuinely motivation at its best.
Ultimately, Olympic officials say, it’s about bringing sports to the people. “We wanted to show that the Olympic Games are not just an international competition most people watch on TV every two years,” said Alexander Zhukov, president of the Russian Olympic Committee. “They are also about involving everyone in the sporting way of life.”
