We all know it isn’t always easy to get motivated to work out every day, but what if you could get something for free if you did? Well, a new pop up restaurant in London is testing that theory, accepting exercise as a form of payment for a person’s meal.
Folks who want to eat at Run for Your Bun, located in Covent Garden and opened by the David Lloyd Clubs gym chain, will be required to do a six-minute, high intensity workout in order to pay for their lunch. The workout consists of one-minute intervals of rowing, sit ups, spinning, squats, lunges, and jogging on the treadmill, with the customer allowed to take only a 30-second break between each rotation.
Now while some may think this is worth it for a free meal, you may change your mind when you hear what that meal is. Considering this is a restaurant focused on health, you’re not going to get any mac and cheese or French fries. Instead, the menu is filled with healthy items, like cous cous, or a pita sandwich with smoked salmon.
“Our lifestyles are becoming increasingly sedentary,” Elaine Denton, health and fitness expert for David Lloyd Clubs, explains. “We want people to recognize that a nutritious, balanced diet and a healthy amount of exercise go hand-in-hand when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle.”
