I might even ride public transit if it were free and had a health bonus too! Awesome. This should be sent to every public transit agency in America. (They all just want to keep raising prices!)

Hahaha, that's awesome! I would totally do that to ride for free. If you were a regular commuter and did this, you'd have an awesome butt and thighs after a few months!

McDonalds should introduce something like this.40 squats for payment. It would help me.

LOL! We need something like this. It's hilarious. I would do 30 squats for a Dove bar.

This is honestly one of the coolest things I've seen... To ride the Moscow subway for free, do 30 squats.

As part of a Russian campaign to make citizens healthier, riders who buy a ticket at Vystavochnaya station in western Moscow have the option of paying in squats.
