An interesting health promotion initiative - in a Romanian city they give bus tickets for squats

In the last decade of August, a kind of health marathon started again in the Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca. "Health ticket" - every resident who does 20 squats can get a free bus ride, according to the Romania-Insider publication, citing the organizers' FB.

 

To get a ticket, even a special intelligent ticket sales system. It operates at the Memorandumului Sud bus station. Such a “healthy ticket” is valid when traveling in public transport for 7 days.

 

Analyzing the results of last year's action, its organizers note that the pilot project of the “Health Ticket” launched within the framework of the Sports Festival was very popular from residents of Cluj-Napoca. From late September to December 31st, nearly a million squats were performed on more than 55,000 bus tickets, which equates to nearly 2,000 hours of exercise.
