Subway Fare: 30 Squats

What if all you had to do to ride Boulder public transit for FREE was to do 30 squats.

In an effort to promote the Olympic Games, the Moscow metro system has built a ticket booth that takes squats for payment.  Riders must perform 30 squats in under 2:00 minutes to get access to the rail.

Check out the video above.

Squats for payment?  Cool or lame?  Post to comments.

    Super Cool. I’ve wished the speed we could drive was based on fitness, a la cycling. How about the dude with the pistols?!

    Whoops, I set my alarm clock for 6:30am instead of 6:00am. I got up and dressed was out the door before i realized I had already missed the start of class. Sorry Trevor!

    Great invention.. but can we get those feet markers shoulder width apart? It would also be great if the machine would yell at you to push your butt back and your knees out.

    Can someone add the Whiteboard for today?

    That’s so awesome. I love the guy in the orange sweats. This would be super fun to do at school- 30 squats to get on the school bus every day.

    SO cool… if only US would jump on that bandwagon!
