There can only be a few reasons why you would find yourself squatting in a subway station. None of them are appealing. But what if there’s a promise of a free ticket at the end of it?
We’re talking exercise here, not sleeping rough or Paula Radcliffe-ing. In an attempt to get its porky population back on track (32.8% classed as dangerously overweight in 2013), the Mexican government has installed motion-sensitive squat testing machines in its subway stations. (Gracias, Matt.)
You do ten squats, you get a free ticket to ride, saving yourself about five pesos and perhaps a visit to the obesity clinic. Who wouldn’t want to pay diddly squat for their daily commute?
