In anticipation of the 2014 Winter Olympics to be held in Sochi, Russia, a Moscow subway introduced a new way to bring sports to the people. Alongside the vending card machines, passengers can test their physical prowess by performing 30 core-strengthening squats in two minutes to receive a free train ticket. The novel idea can perhaps revolutionize the way people purchase items, creating a new currency of fitness.
