Taking the Escalator or the Stairs?

The premise of introducing more work for the body results in greater caloric output due to an increase in biomechanical function. In other words, the more we move, the greater the potential to burn more calories. The question is how do we engage people to move more? To become a lot more 'functional' without the mindset in thinking that exercise is boring, a form of punishment, a sense of 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. Enjoy!

Remember to take the stairs. In my mind, the escalator & the elevator are both out of order!
