Taking the Stairs Instead of the Escalator

The premise of introducing more work for the body results in greater caloric output due to an increase in biomechanical function. In other words, we create more physical movement which gives us more efficiency in buring extra calories. The question is how do we engage people to move more? To become a lot more functional without the mentality of boredom, punishment, an obligation or being too time consuming? How about we add some FUN into the mix of things!

In the beginning of the video below, note the number of people taking the escalator vs. the stairs. Add a group of creative individuals that tranform your ordinary set of stairs into a 'piano' and the results are incredible! Check it out.

Remember to take the stairs......cause the escalator & the elevator are both out of order!
