Take a moment to think about the last time you sat down and thought about your improving your health. Can’t remember? You’re probably not alone. There are millions of people who struggle to remain fit over time. The reasons could be many: probably you are not getting the results as you’d want, or you are not willing to put some extra hours to get back in shape. But whatever may be your excuse, it’s important to take care of your physical well-being as a couch potato is likely to spend more on health care than others.

All over the world, the governments too understand this problem and are always keen to tell their citizens that exercise is good for them.

 

 

Recently, a video went viral that showed a man doing 30 squats in exchange to get a free ride on the subway.

In fact, the video is quite old (of 2013), as it showed passengers at the Vystavochnaya station, west of Moscow, doing this as part of a promo for the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The idea behind this was simple: to get people active and amped.

 

 

It is not hard to imagine that the benefits of fitness outweigh the costs. Studies suggest that people who work out regularly are more productive at work than others. Moreover, those who get sufficient exercise also miss fewer workdays.

 

 

Not only this, in the past too, several similar ideas have cropped up which involved bike-powered mobile phone chargers to musical stairs. Recently, the trend to get fitter picked up pace when Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore started a fitness challenge ‘Hum Fit Toh India Fit’ and passed the challenge to team India skipper Virat Kohli and actor Hrithik Roshan, who also posted their videos on social media. The video quickly went viral with many celebrities and political leaders like Sania Mirza, Saina Nehwal, Anushka Sharma, Jayant Sinha, Kiren Rijiju, among others taking it up.
